Taiwanese artiste Jay Chou spent the past few weeks accompanying his wife Hannah Quinlivan who just gave birth to their child on July 10.
However, he was spotted taking a break from daddy duties for the first time when he competed in a basketball competition (the 3-on-3 Basketball League at the Ximending Backstreet Festival) with his good friend singer-composer Will Liu on Tuesday.
His wife and daughter were nowhere in sight and netizens assumed that they are still resting at the post-partum centre.
Photos of the game were uploaded onto Weibo by fans and in the pictures, Jay was wearing an all-black outfit including a beanie, t-shirt and baggy shorts. It also looked like he nearly fell when he wanted to grab the ball from another player, causing netizens to resound in worried comments.
One netizen commented, “Please go easy on him, after all, he just became a father,” and a more observant netizen noticed the plaster around his right pinky finger and said, “(Jay’s) finger injury hasn’t healed yet?”
