Benny Chan and Wife Lisa Jiang Welcome 8-Pound Son
Benny Chan (陳浩民) and his wife Lisa Jiang (蔣麗莎) welcomed their second child on September 23. Currently filming in China, Benny requested a month off from his busy schedule to accompany his wife in the delivery room. The second-time father found the birth touching and praised his wife for her strength.
Benny and Lisa scheduled the birth yesterday so that their son will share the same astrological sign with his father. Because the couple had previous experience with Caesarean section during their daughter Elizabeth’s (陳雅薷) birth, Benny was fully prepared this time and calmly sat next to his wife as they chatted throughout the procedure.
Since Hong Kong was greatly affected by super typhoon Usagi over the weekend, some of Benny’s friends jokingly suggested naming the newborn “Tin To”, the Cantonese term for Usagi. Weighing 8.3 pounds, Benny and Lisa’s son was ultimately given the name Chan Ging Hin (陳璟軒). Despite being born under poor weather, little Ging Hin seems ready to enjoy life, smiling soon after entering the world. Regarding his experiences, Benny said, “My wife’s tummy has not completely healed yet after the surgery, and it is still bleeding. I didn’t cut the umbilical cord. After my son was born, he cried a little bit but soon smiled. I was very touched at that moment, and once again felt the greatness of a mother’s love.”
Benny also praised his wife. When asked if Lisa cried after meeting their son, Benny said, “No. She is very strong. She immediately began to breast feed even though her wounds have yet to heal. My wife is the happiest one of all because her wish had come true. She was able to wait until now so that our son can be a Libra. We chose the auspicious date and time to undergo the procedure. We will seek advice from a fortune teller to see if the name we have chosen will be a good fit for our son. I wish him good health. He doesn’t have to accomplish great things, but most importantly he should not become a burden on our society.”
