Leehom Wang Announces Birth of Second Daughter, Jiana

40-year-old Leehom Wang (王力宏) and 30-year-old Lee Jinglei (李靚蕾) have welcomed their second child, a daughter, this week.

On Friday, Leehom shared on social media that his wife has given birth to their second daughter in the United States. Leehom wrote on Facebook, “Mom and Baby are both doing well. We’re so happy, excited, and grateful to announce the arrival of our baby daughter Jiana Wang (王嘉娜) into this world!”

Leehom also shared a picture of Jinglei cradling a newborn Jiana in her arms, with Jiana holding on Leehom’s finger. The actor-singer will be on two months of paternity leave in the United States to spend more time with his wife and newborn daughter.

Leehom and Jinglei married in November 2013. They welcomed their first daughter, Jiali Wang (王嘉莉), in July 2014.

Congratulations to Leehom and his family!

      Congrats Leehom. It’s great to see him and his wife so very happy over the child of their second daughter. It’s good that Leehom has put his gayhood days behind him (no pun intended) and is totally straight now.

      I’ve always wondered why he chose to use the pinyin spelling of his name professionally instead of his American name (yes, I know he grew up in Rochester and English is his native language).

      I’m also curious to know why it was so important to him and Jinglei that their children have pinyin spellings instead of actual American names. If they thought their children might move to the USA one day after they’re grown (is that why they wanted their daughters to have American citizenship easily?), wouldn’t it be better to give them easier to pronounce, American names? Jiana is easy to say, but Jiali is a bit harder.

      I’m not criticizing them at all for not giving their children American names. I’m genuinely curious.

        @sas318 He was using the name Alexander while growing up in the US. It was only when he launched his singing career that he switched to his Chinese name, I believe to connect better with his fans in Taiwan, China, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore.

        As for his two daughters, he gave them names that are of Chinese origin and yet do sound American somewhat. He is someone that strongly believe in his roots.

        @sas318 FYI, both girls were born in the States and the family is living there right now.

        As far as his naming his kids with Asian-sounding names, it is no different than many African-Americans who often choose “African-sounding” names vs the traditional English/European sounding ones. It is a matter of cultural pride. This practice is the polar opposite of white-worshipping HK where people adopt Euro/English names for no good reasons other than flaunting some form of supposed elitist sophistication. And very often the names they chose ends up sounding down right stupid.
