Sonija Kwok (郭羨妮) gave birth to her daughter on May 22nd via Cesarean section. The baby girl weighed 6 pounds 1 ounce, arriving two weeks earlier than the expected delivery date. Sonija’s husband, mainland action choreographer, Zhu Shaojie (朱少杰), accompanied her in the delivery room and cut the umbilical cord of the baby. Sonija cried tears of joy when she met her “little angel”!
Getting married in Guam in October 2011, the couple quickly became parents within one year. Although the pregnancy came earlier than expected, Sonija embraced motherhood and looked forward to entering a new stage in her life.
Since Sonija was carrying low in her pregnancy, the doctor advised that she undergo a Cesarean section two weeks before the due date. Sonija said, “The date of the Cesarean section was selected by the doctor. It’s a good thing, since my belly was huge. Since becoming pregnant, my weight has increased to 160 pounds!”
In the delivery room, Shaojie was by Sonija’s bedside. Sonija said, “He was pretending to be calm. Afterward, he told me that his heart nearly jumped out. I received anesthesia, so I was not entirely coherent.”
Sonija has already returned home from the hospital. Due to receiving a Cesarean section, she was still in pain. Both baby and mother were doing well. The baby’s name has not been decided yet; thus Sonija and Shaojie called her “little angel” for the time being. Her eyes opened wide and she was very lively in the photos.
Sonija said, “The baby’s eyes resemble daddy, but her nose, mouth and hands resemble my features.” Since Sonija was one-quarter British, her daughter’s features were reflective of the mixed heritage as well.
Shaojie has taken time off from working in mainland China to accompany Sonija during her postpartum recovery. After things settled down, he will need to resume work.
Sonija declared, “We will try our best efforts to care for our little angel, allowing her to grow up healthily and happily! Thank you God!” Sonija graciously responded to the well wishes left by friends and fans on her Weibo personal blog.
