Joel Chan Welcomes Arrival of Newborn Son

TVB actor Joel Chan (陳山聰) has welcomed the arrival of his newborn son!

Sharing his first family photo of three on Instagram, the actor wrote, “The most beautiful image in my marathon of life. Thankful. Your daddy hopes you will grow into a man of positivity, good health, and happiness.

Joel shared to the media that his close friends, Pal Sinn (單立文) and his wife Paisley Wu (胡蓓蔚), named his son Jaco. Joel was in the delivery room with his wife, Apple, and he personally cut Jaco’s umbilical cord. He told the press that that was the happiest moment of his life.

Jaco weighed seven pounds, one ounce at birth. With his wide nose and long earlobe, Joel said his son looked “lucky.”

“I wasn’t nervous going into the hospital, but I broke down into tears at the delivery room,” said Joel. On the other hand, Apple was calm throughout the delivery process, and even told Joel to relax. As expected, Jaco cried in the first minute of his life, but he soon smiled afterwards.

“He really likes to laugh,” said Joel.

Joel married Apple Ho (何麗萍), his non-celebrity girlfriend of five years, in November 2019.

  1. Looks like Pal and Paisley are going to be the god parents since they’re the one name the son. I heard of Jacob before not sure about Jaco but anyway congratulations to the Chan family hopefully he’ll be a family man.

  2. Jaco sounds like Joel + Apple’s name combined… but instead of Japo (cuz maybe that looks like the word Japan or sorta Japanese?), they chose Jaco. Interesting but not super weird. I find it an easily acceptable unique name. Congrats to Joel and his little blissful family of 3 now!

  3. Jaco is an odd name, I thought the article misspelled Jacob but nonetheless congrats to them
