The 40-year-old finally confirms parenthood rumors!
After months of speculation over Carina Zhang‘s (張馨月) pregnancy, Raymond Lam (林峯) finally announced the birth of his daughter. The couple registered for marriage last September in Hong Kong, and Carina quickly conceived. At the end of August, a heavily-pregnant Carina was spotted shopping with Raymond in Shenzhen, where she allegedly gave birth. Though the couple released news of their daughter’s arrival, the exact date of her birth is not clear.
In the photos shared by Raymond on social media, the new parents cosplayed as legendary characters from well-known Chinese novel Journey to the West, with Raymond playing Monkey King Sun Wukong while the expectant Carina dressed up as Zhu Bajie. Showing lots of love, Raymond cheekily pointed to Carina’s protruding belly in a photo and half-knelt in another photo.
Raymond penned his immense pride and emotions at becoming a newly minted dad, “The first time I carried you, I felt your breath and warmth. It is the first time I experienced the touching continuity of life. I’d use my life to safeguard and treasure this perfect happiness.” He also uploaded another heartwarming photo with the couple clenching fists to match their newborn’s tiny fist and wrote, “To protect with my life.”
New mother Carina also posted another heartwarming photo of herself looking radiant in a white buttoned blouse and tulle skirt, caressing her bump while a casually dressed Raymond kissed her pregnant belly. The new mom shared how she felt towards her daughter, “The first time I saw you, I kissed your forehead and embraced you, the pain of pregnancy and labor became insignificant. Dearest darling, you bring new meaning to my life, adding warmth and sweetness into my contented life, my heart pines for both you and Daddy. With your company, Mommy’s life has no regrets.”
When reached for comments, Raymond’s cousin Rosina Lam (林夏薇) shared her excitement at her baby niece’s arrival. “Congratulations, and I’m overjoyed for them. Finally, they don’t have to keep it a secret! Due to the pandemic, I’ve yet to visit the newborn and saw only her in photos–she is so beautiful and resembles both of them. I’ll decide on a suitable gift when I get to see her.”
It is said that Carina is currently staying at a post-pregnancy confinement center in Shenzhen charging a monthly fee of 420,000 Hong Kong dollars. The arrangement was so that Raymond, who is currently filming for Chinese drama Star of Ocean <星辰大海> in Zhongshan, as well as Carina’s family could visit and care for her conveniently.
