After marrying his beloved Mongolian girlfriend Bao Xiao Hui (who is now a Singapore PR) in May last year, he welcomed his newborn son Genghis Chan Ze Xun (nicknamed Xiao Un) on June 12, four days later than the original due date.

The 52-year-old father has been shooting a few commercials lately, including his recent promotions for a local supplement brand. However, none of them involve his wife and baby yet, and so his answer remains a solid ‘yes’ if any opportunities to do so arise. He added that he has no preferences about which jobs to take and joked, “I'm fine as long as I can raise enough money to buy milk powder for the baby.”

When asked about whether he has given any gifts to his wife or son for the occasion, he declined: “We’re a very practical couple and will not buy presents just for the sake of it”.

One month into fatherhood, Tian Wen rated himself a 7 or 8 out of 10 as a father so far: “I’m still lacking in some areas; I still don’t know how to bathe my son or change his diapers! … I’m still worried that I will accidentally let water into his eyes when I bathe him. For now, my wife takes care of the baby, but we are considering hiring a helper in future.”

Regarding his career plans for the remaining year, Tian Wen shared that he “definitely has upcoming projects” especially after the success of his “un-un-un-un-unbelievable” music video, but is “unable to reveal details as of yet” and “any specifics must be kept secret until the very last moment”. With a promise that details will be out soon, Tian Wen continued to reveal that he will be taking on the role of a celebrity tour guide this November and December.

All seems to be going smoothly for the new father in both his career and family. Tian Wen also said that he is “still busy taking care of the necessary welfare needs” for his fast-growing child (who can no longer fit into the small size!).

Tian Wen spoke about his party plans

Tianwen shared in an interview with Toggle that he started prepping for Genghis’ first month party two weeks ago. The hands-on dad was even spotted climbing up a ladder and putting up the gold balloon decorations that spelled out “Genghis First Month”, at the restaurant where the party was held at yesterday.

After sending out invitations, he had expected around 300 guests last week, but due to many friends contacting him last minute that they could come, the guest list ended up growing to exceed 400 guests. “I haven’t really counted how much I spent in total on the party but I think it costs around two to four thousand dollars”, he shared.

Guests began strolling in with their large hampers and baby shower-themed balloons, as well as their red packets in hand, ready to greet the family of three.

Everything was personally selected and planned, from the venue to the decorations, and Tian Wen previously shared that the party was “a must” for him, as difficult and troublesome as it may have been.

When asked if she would have Xiao Un star alongside her in Lulu The Movie, the Our Sister Mambo actress commented that “it’s a bit too early for that” and joked that Genghis is Tian Wen’s “biggest production yet”.
