It’s a boy! Ella Chen (陳嘉樺) of the Taiwanese female trio S.H.E has shared on social media that she has delivered a baby boy, nicknamed Jingbao (勁寶)—or Strong Baby—on Wednesday, April 12, in Taiwan.
The 35-year-old said on Facebook, “Thank you all for your blessings. Yesterday afternoon, accompanied by my beloved sisters and family (it’s the first time a deliver room was this crowded—this mother loves a lively atmosphere), I gave birth safely to the first baby of my life. It’s such a fascinating feeling!”
The singer revealed in her post that she originally wanted a water birth, but failed to do so as her cervix was unsuitable for a safe delivery in water. She opted to deliver naturally without an epidural. “It was very, very, very painful,” wrote Ella, “but a strong mother once told me that as long as I fight with all my heart, the baby will come!”
Ella’s S.H.E bandmates, Selina Jen (任家萱) and Hebe Tien (田馥甄), were in the delivery room with her.
In 2012, Ella married 40-year-old Malaysian businessman Alvin Lai (賴斯翔). The couple announced that they were expecting in October 2016.
