On December 7, Jordan Chan (陳小春) announced that his wife Cherrie Ying (應采兒) is pregnant with their second child at the Taipei leg of his Stop Angry Concert Tour, his first concert in 10 years. His wife and their six-year-old son Jasper were also in attendance.
The concert was delayed half an hour due to protestors shouting slogans outside of the venue, in which up to 70 policemen were deployed for crowd control, but the show was able to continue on successfully.
“I can finally hold my Taipei concert,” said Jordan at the start of his concert. He bowed and sincerely thanked the audience for their support. “I’ve always waited a long time for this! I apologize for the wait. I want to thank every single one of you: thank you for your true heart. Taiwan was the first place that recognized my singing. I also want to thank Taiwan for giving me the opportunity to record my first Mandarin album. Taiwan has beautiful food and beautiful people.”
There, he also announced that Cherrie his three months pregnant with their second child against the cheers of thousands of fans.
Jordan has been receiving controversy lately in Taiwan due to his pro-Beijing stance on social media.
Rumors say that the protests against Jordan were so severe that police recommended the 52-year-old singer to wear a bullet-proof vest on stage, but the disturbance outside of his venue did not affect his performance.
The name of Jordan’s Stop Angry Concert Tour was inspired by his son Jasper, whom he brought along to film the fifth and sixth seasons of the Chinese variety show Where Are We Going, Dad? <爸爸去哪兒>. On the show, Jasper often asked his father if he could “stop angry with [him].”
