Taiwanese actress-singer Christine Fan gave birth to her twins, River and Ryan Chen in January and celebrated her first Mothers’ Day this year. As a dedication to his wife, Blackie Chen took to Facebook to post ten photos, chronicling her journey to motherhood.
He wrote in the post to his 39-year-old wife: “Thank you for all you’ve done for our family and for your sacrifice and dedication. Happy Mothers’ Day! We love Mom!”
Just four hours after it was uploaded, it garnered over 100,000 likes and many happy responses. Some were particularly moved by the gesture, saying, “Seeing this makes me so touched, I want to cry!”
Christine had a very hard time during her pregnancy due to her older age, which made it a high-risk pregnancy, and because she was expecting a pair of twins. She was initially very unstable and experienced a serious urinary problem, heavy bleeding, insomnia as well as hair loss.
After going through a difficult pregnancy, the Ohio-born actress chose to thank her own mother with a Facebook post of her own yesterday: “I am extremely grateful to my mother. She is the smartest and the bravest person I know.”
Christine added that she hopes to become like her mother, saying, “No matter what happens, I will always give my children the strongest support and always be full of courage, perseverance, patience and love. I will never forget how great my mother is. Happy Mothers’ Day. I love you Mum!”
Accompanying the caption are four old photos of her and her mother back in the day.
