It isn’t just Aaron Kwok who’s welcoming his second child in his 50s. Popular Taiwanese host Kang Kang, 51, just did – his daughter was born via Caesarean section on Thursday (Jan 17).
In an interview with Apple Daily Taiwan, Kang said it was the first time he had stepped into a delivery room.
While his 34-year-old wife gave birth, he held her hand while offering her words of encouragement.
Kang shared that during childbirth, the doctor praised him for accompanying his wife, but the anxious man replied: “Please concentrate (on the surgery), doctor.”
And when the 2.95kg baby was born, both dad and mum were moved to tears.
Proud daddy moment
She may only be a day old, but the doting dad has already taken many video clips of his newborn, saying: “She’s so adorable.”
The couple, who got hitched in 2011, have a six-year-old son, Matt.
They strove for a second baby after Matt was born, but had their pregnancy dreams dashed as Kang’s wife miscarried twice.
Deciding to let nature take its course, the couple was pleasantly surprised to find that they were expecting a girl last year.
