Finally achieving their family goals, 47-year-old Taiwanese model-actress Chiling Lin (林志玲) and 40-year-old Japanese actor Akira announced on January 31 that they have welcomed a baby boy!
Chiling shared the good news by uploading a photo of the baby’s hand on her Instagram. She wrote, “Thank you for coming into our family. Finally, we have welcomed the little angel into our home. We hope to start the beautiful year by sharing the love and happiness to everyone. We thank you so much for your support and blessings all this time. Happy New Year!”
Since tying the knot in 2019, Chiling and Akira have tried their best to conceive a baby. Despite Chiling having frozen her eggs at the age of 39 for future use, not every egg was usable, so they frequented clinics often in hopes of conception. However, it was a lot more difficult than expected, which eventually led the couple to leave it up to fate.
Maintaining a positive outlook, Chiling continued her daily life with her husband in Japan. She rarely made any appearances except for the recent short video message she filmed for the show Dee’s Talk <熙娣想聊>. In the video, she looked thin from her waist up, and did not seem to show any signs of pregnancy.
The surprise birth announcement drew significant blessings from netizens, as many are glad Chiling’s efforts these last three years turned out to be fruitful and her dream to build a happy family has come true.
