Taiwanese magician Lu Chen and his Chinese model wife Wang Xiyi welcomed an addition to their family on Sunday. According to media reports, Xiyi gave birth to a healthy baby boy in a Beijing hospital. Lu Chen’s manager has also confirmed the good news and thanked everyone for their concern.
In May, Lu Chen posted a photo from their wedding photoshoot to announce his marriage with Xiyi, who is 10 years his junior. At the time, the 39-year-old revealed in an interview that his wife was three months pregnant.
“On one hand, I feel that I need to account for my actions as a public figure. On the other hand, I’m worried about misreports, so it’d be better for me to ‘surrender’ first,” he said.
Throughout the course of her pregnancy, Lu Chen was spotted accompanying Xiyi to prenatal check-ups on several occasions. The magician also stopped his work activities to prepare for childbirth with his wife. After their son was born, Lu Chen has been happily entertaining the couple’s relatives and friends who visited them at the hospital.
