Angela Tong goes into labour 7 days early

13 March 2013 / 3 years 7 months ago

Angela Tong was admitted into the Canossa Hospital (Caritas) on Sunday (Mar 10) after she went into labour, and subsequently gave birth to baby girl Alyssa via natural delivery.According to an Oriental Daily report, Alyssa weighed over three kilograms when born, and has lots of hair and looks very cute.On Tuesday (Mar 10), Angela and her husband Chin Ka Lok shared the good news -- that Angela's recovery after the natural delivery is going very smoothly, and that she looks well-spirited even though she still has a bulging belly.As the couple left the hospital, Chin Ka Lok gave Angela kisses several times and revealed that they have already hired someone to help with 'sitting the month' (postpartum confinement month).Angela's going to be on break and focus entirely on being a mother and she'll be breast feeding as well. Ka Lok also revealed that although his wife was expected to be due on Mar 17 as widely predicted, her water broke on the seven days earlier so she was sent to the hospital at 7am and gave birth to Alyssa in the afternoon.Ka Lok recounted that he didn't plan to go into the delivery room, but the nurse kept egging him into the room to accompany Angela.Because of that, he was able to witness the most important moment -- one as if he was an director in an action movie instructing his wife to breathe.He said: "I think she used her strength in the wrong area. She put it all on her face. I taught her to breathe like she's pooping. The nurse asked me to be more direct, but I personally wanted to hold back and have a little imagination". When the couple heard the sound of their daughter's cry, they were moved to tears.Ka Lok said: "My wife was crying like a faucet and I was like a small fountain. Luckily I went into the delivery room, the entire situation was so subtle, miraculous, really amazing, incredible and wonderful. I really cherish the moment."Ka Lok also said that he refused to cut the umbilical cord at first because he was worried he wouldn't do a good job and cause his daughter's belly button to look ugly. In the end, the doctor asked him if he's just afraid of blood?He said: "I thought to myself, I'm used to filming action movies, how could I be afraid! At first, I thought it was just one cut, but turns out you have to make a few determined cuts. I'm very happy, can't believe Chin Ka Lok can become a father. I just feel like I'm dreaming."Angela exposed: "Him?! He immediately took out a camera and asked me to take pictures for him!" Angela revealed she was in pain for 2 hours during labor, but Ka Lok said: "At the time, she was so confused. She asked me if she'll be able to do it. I said the same thing I said to Nicholas Tse, when he had to jump from the 8th floor during the filming of The Viral Factor, I said to him: 'Don't think you can't do it, you have to think about how to do it.'"When asked who he thinks his daughter resembles more, mother or father? Chin Ka Lok laughed: "The nurse said she looks more like me. I immediately thought of Bonnie (one of the contestants on Bride Wannabes), of course its better to look like mom! The grandparents thought she looks like me too. My daughter's eyes are very wide, her big eyes must look like her mom."He joked he's considering naming his daughter "Chin Ching", but ultimately his father will have to make modifications. The couple loves children, therefore after Angela's recovery, they plan to have more children. Chin Ka Lok said: "I hope to get a little brother for Alyssa!"
