Congratulations to Jordan Chan (陳小春) and Cherie Ying (應采兒) on officially becoming parents as they welcomed their son, Jasper, into the world on July 1. The ecstatic father spoke to the press outside the hospital doors and announced that the baby is healthy and weighed approximately 6 pounds. The baby resembles Cherie, but his eyebrows are thick like his father.
Jordan just finished a job when he received news that his wife was giving birth via Cesarean section. He sped from the airport all the way to the hospital. When asked if he went into the delivery room, Jordan replied, “Of course! I can’t leave a pregnant woman in there by herself while I’m relaxing outside.” Their newborn baby still requires a checkup so Jordan has yet to hold his son, but agreed that the process is necessary to ensure the baby is in good health.
Even though Jordan wants to spend more time with Jasper, he has to finish his current jobs on hand. Jordan still has to fly to Tianjin in late July to August for filming. However, he stressed that after that, he’ll be taking a break from work to spend time with his family. “I’ll probably take a small hiatus to spend time with my son. I want to know the feeling of being a father. As new parents, I think it’ll be fun to play with the baby.”
Jordan said that he took a class to learn how to care for an infant. “I know how to do it; I got a score of 80 points.”
Cherie’s Words are the Law
During Cherie’s pregnancy, Jordan listened to his wife’s every order. When she told him to stand, he did not dare sit. He even tolerated Cherie’s violent mood swings. Cherie joked that she had wanted to kill Jordan at one point, “Whoever got me pregnant has to withstand it!” Even when Jordan complained about being tired from work, Cherie managed to silence him with one statement, “Unless you have a uterus, don’t come talk to me about it!”
However, Jordan did not mind her moodiness and even praised Cherie for her courage when she was in labor. “I talked to her, distracting her while she received the [Cesarean section]. She bit back [the pain] and was very determined; it’s something which only women can withstand. It’s not easy.”
