    All three kids were delivered by consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Law Wei Seng at Thomson Medical Centre.

    Qiuqiu, whose real name is Ang Chiew Ting, often reminds her 294,000 followers that Baby No. 3 will be the last of her brood.

    In one post to her then unborn son, she wrote: “See you real soon and then.. FACTORY SHUT DOWN FOREVER.”

    Her daughters were excited about their little brother’s arrival. A week before he was born, Amelia was seen kissing Mummy’s belly and giving him cute stickers.

    “Not sure if we can cope with the chaos soon to come but for sure, it only gets better with time,” Qiuqiu shared on Instagram.

    “Amelia is still sometimes like a baby herself so i don’t know if becoming a jiejie (sister) will change her. But I’m 100% looking forward to spending more time with her, without a big belly between us.”

    While she was pregnant with Amelia in 2017, she became entangled in a lawsuit with a social media advertising network and faced up to $250,000 in legal fees.

    She turned to crowdfunding to raise the fees, but encountered backlash. One user even suggested she miscarried or aborted her child.
