Though each have significant others, TVB artistes Jackson Lai (黎振燁) and Ashley Chu (朱智賢) were caught cheating and having a secret date in April. The public was shocked as Jackson’s wife was about to give birth, and Ashley was already dating Brian Tse (謝東閔). Both have since been forgiven by their respective partners and trying to put the cheating scandal behind them. With the birth of Jackson’s son this week, the actor accepted a short interview with the press to give an update on his family life.
Earlier during a prenatal checkup, test results had shown that the umbilical cord was circling their baby’s neck. Jackson and his wife decided to schedule a Cesarean section with their designated obstetrician to ensure the safety of mother and child. Jackson’s wife gave birth on Wednesday around 10 p.m. at a private hospital to a seven-pound healthy baby boy. Luckily, the umbilical cord had loosened just in time for birth, and the actor personally cut the cord.
The entire experience was wondrous for the couple, and his wife was so happy that she cried. Hospital staff feel that the baby looks like his father and pointed out that he also has a big head! They have not thought of a name yet.
Sharing a photo of himself and his newborn son on his private social media account, Jackson expressed that he was happy, nervous, and excited about his son’s birth. He likes children and hopes to have another child, but due to financial concerns, it will not be anytime soon.
His wife is still weak, but she is eating light meals and hopes to breastfeed soon. Jackson will be able to help out, as he has a bit of experience with raising children as there are a few children within his family.
