Chen Tianwen welcomes healthy baby boy
Local veteran actor Chen Tianwen, 52, and his China-born wife Bao Xiao Hui, 30, welcomed a healthy baby boy at Mount Alvernia Hospital at 2:13pm on Friday (June 12).
The baby, who has yet to be named, weighs 3.5kg.
Speaking to The New Paper, the first-time dad said: "I was very excited and nervous. The whole process did not take too long."
He added: "During the delivery, I played the Unbelievable song as well as the Sandcastle song, as I think he will be more excited to come out after hearing them. I think it worked!"
Chen became a viral sensation in April, after he sang and starred in two music videos, Unbelievable and Sandcastle In My Heart, which have garnered more than a million views in total.
He thanks his baby for the good luck, saying: "Initially, many people around me asked me to name my baby Mr Unbelievable Chen.
"I thought it was quite funny. I will definitely dote on him a lot but I won't spoil him."
