Ada Choi (蔡少芬)gave birth to 9 lb 4 oz baby daughter on May 11th. Ada’s husband, Max Zhang (張晉)named their daughter Chor Yee (楚兒)and the English name was Zoe.Due to Zoe’s large size, thedoctor recommended a Caesarean section. Both mother and daughter were fine. Witnessing the birth of their daughter, Max’s eyes welled with tears. When Ada held her daughter for the first time, she shouted, “Amazing!” and shed tears of joy.
The original due date for the baby was on May 17th, however, Ada experienced contractions the night before and entered Canossa Hospital. Although Ada wished to experience natural birth, the doctor advised a Caesarean section. Baby Zoe was born at 5:11 PM. Ada announced the birth of her daughter and posted a family photo on her blog.
Ada and Max were both overjoyed by the birth of their daughter. Max could not stop smiling at Zoe and described her as a strong girl, since she did not cry constantly and possessed thick arms and legs. The hospital that Ada chose for the baby’s delivery, Canossa Hospital, was considered a highly-rated maternity hospital. Chingmy Yau (邱淑貞)and Kelly Chen (陳慧琳)also delivered their babies there. The minimum hospital fee started at $10,000 (HKD).
Accompanied by a female friend, Max chatted with reporters in front of Canossa Hospital yesterday. As a first-time father, Max thanked everyone for their concern. Excited, Max gave a thumbs up and bowed before the reporters, “Mother and daughter are safe. Our baby daughter has been born! Ada entered the hospital last night. Her original delivery date was May 17th ; the information that the tabloids published earlier was all wrong. Since Ada’s belly was so large, we visited the hospital and coincidentally, the baby arrived. Our baby was born on May 11th at 5:11 PM and weighed 9 lbs 4 oz. I believe that our daughter was the heaviest baby in the hospital!”
Witnessing the birth process, Max realized it was not easy being a mother. He vowed to treat his wife better. When the nurse brought the baby into Max’s arms for the first time, his eyes welled with tears. Ada was also crying at the time. Asked who the baby resembled, Max said, “Her mouth looks like Daddy and hair looks like Mommy. Here comes another beauty!” (Did you decide on a name yet?) “Ada wanted to have a single Chinese character for the name. I liked the Chor (楚) character because I want her to understand the truth of God. Finally, we named her Chor Yee and her English name is Zoe, which means the meaning of life.”
Taking Time Off to Spend with Ada
Ada’s mother had already visited the baby at the hospital. Did both Ada and Max’s parents visit the hospital yet? Max said, “All the people that should come have already visited.” (When are you going home?) “Not so soon. I’m not going back to work yet. I will spend some time with my wife first.” (Will Ada become a full-time housewife?) “She cannot settle down…. After resting more, she will likely act again.”
Nick Cheung (張家輝) visited Ada at thehospital. Nick and Ada became good friends after filmingSecret of the Heart <天地豪情>. Nick said, “I just saw Ada and the baby. Maybe the baby was just born, but she looks like a carbon copy of Ada!” (Will you share childcare tips with Ada?) “We discussed that earlier.” (What did you give as a gift?) “Let’s wait a little bit, after she goes home. We have known each other since Secret of the Heart. Now we each have our own daughters!”
Jayne: Congratulations to Ada! Her daughter is huge, but Ada didn’t seem to gain much weight herself during the pregnancy. Can’t wait to see more pictures of the baby when she is awake!
