Linda Chung Makes Day Trip to Hong Kong
On Thursday, Linda Chung (鐘嘉欣) made her first appearance in Hong Kong since giving birth to her daughter Kelly in August. The 32-year-old, who was attending an event for Emporio Armani’s Remix collection, was in fantastic spirits when she greeted the press.
“This brand has supported me for many years, so I had to come,” said Linda. “Money isn’t the reason why I’m back.” She added her event appearance was confirmed over a month ago.
As for her new life with baby Kelly, Linda happily said she’s been enjoying her life as a new mother. “No mistakes so far,” shared Linda. “I’m a rather calm mother. The first month of postpartum recovery was tiring. It was hard to get used to that lifestyle, but I’m a lot better at it now.”
Linda did not sleep much in the first month after giving birth to Kelly, who was delivered naturally. Kelly always cried and had to be fed every two hours. But after going through that first month of frantic struggle, Linda began to adapt to her baby’s needs.
“I now know how much she needs to eat and why she’s crying,” said Linda. “Now that she’s older, she’s starting to sleep more too. She’s been sleeping at least eight hours a day!”
Linda shared that she would be leaving Hong Kong the following day. She explained, “I only pumped out about 26 100 ml bottles of milk. I need to go back soon.”
Asking if her figure has changed after breastfeeding, Linda said, “I actually lost weight from breastfeeding! I’ve learned from a baby class that you can lose up to 15 calories from breastfeeding every time.” Linda gained over 35 pounds while carrying Kelly. “I lost most of that now,” she added.
Will Not Star in “Heart of Greed 3”
Linda jokingly said she “cried for hours” when she had to leave Kelly for Hong Kong. She frequently video-chats with her family back in Vancouver.
As for her impending career comeback, Linda admitted that it won’t be in the near future. “I will take up a few events in the meantime. I haven’t completely healed yet. I want to take good care of myself and my daughter first before I start work.”
TVB has already started the casting work for Heart of Greed 3 <溏心風暴3> which starts principal photography next year. Linda, who starred in the previous two installments, confirmed that she will not be returning for the show.
“It’s a pity. Heart of Greed brought me many things, and I really want to take part in it. However, I have a daughter now, and she is number one. I need to take care of her.” Asking if Linda will permanently move back to Vancouver, she said, “I haven’t thought that far yet. My career is in Hong Kong after all, so I really need to plan this well. My husband supports me, and has been supporting me ever since we started dating. He knows I’ll be flying a lot in the future. I don’t mind that.”
