Linda Chung Gave Birth to Son, Jared Anthony, at Home
Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) shared photos of her new baby boy, Jared Anthony, on Instagram today. Linda revealed that she had a natural birth at her home in Vancouver, and Jared weighed a healthy 7 pounds and 14 ounces when he was born.
“He has a lot of hair and resembles Kelly closely. My family joked that I had fraternal twins because they look so much alike,” Linda said. Both Kelly and Jared inherited prominent noses from their parents, but daddy’s traits seem to be more evident.
As to why she decided to give birth at home, Linda said, “The Canadian government really supports natural births. I’m grateful to find a a very professional team to help with my natural birth, coaching me through the whole process, and making it safe and smooth. Natural birth allowed me to believe in and listen to my own body. I felt in control. This was definitely an unforgettable experience for our family.”
Good friends, Grace Wong (王君馨), Eliza Sam (岑麗香), and Leanne Li (李亞男) were thrilled by the baby news. Grace said, “I’m very happy for Linda! Since the baby was born at home, I felt Linda was very brave! Haha! Linda is slowly realizing her dream because she loves children and really wanted to have a second child,” Grace said.
Married to Canadian-Chinese chiropractor, Jeremy Leung, Linda returned to her hometown in Vancouver to raise their family. After giving birth to her daughter, Kelly, in 2016, the 34-year-old actress has reduced her workload and eventually left TVB this March. Embracing motherhood fully, Linda is extremely excited that Kelly will now have a little brother to play with.
