    It’s a “little king” for Myolie Wu and husband Philip Lee. The couple welcomed baby No. 2 – another boy – to their family last week.

    The Hong Kong actress announced the good news on July 6 by sharing a close-up photo of her family’s hands.

    Both mummy and baby are doing well, Philip wrote on Instagram.

    The baby’s named Ryan, “an Irish name following in big brother Brendan’s footsteps,” he said. The children’s names, he explained, mean ‘little king’ and ‘prince’ in Irish.

    How will Brendan, who turns two in October, take to the new addition to the family? Myolie appears to have prepared him for the role of big brother.

    In June, she posted a photo of the tot perching himself on her belly, seemingly greeting his sibling. She wrote: “Brendan, you’re going to become a big brother soon, please love your younger brother!”

    Myolie had kept her second child’s gender a secret until then, not revealing that she was expecting another boy when her friends threw her a surprise baby shower in May.

    Now that she’s the mum of two boys, will Myolie try for a ‘little princess’ next?

    In an earlier interview with Ming Pao Daily, the 39-year-old TVB actress said: “I hope to have another one, especially since after giving birth to Brendan I find babies really adorable. My age is catching up and I hope to give birth to another child as soon as possible, so that he can have a brother or sister. He’d be lonely if it were just him alone.”
