Benny Chan (陳浩民) and wife Lisa Jiang‘s (蔣麗莎) third child, Isabella, was born on December 13. Lisa was discharged from St Paul’s Hospital in Hong Kong yesterday.
Benny’s thoughtfulness as a father was evident, as he swiftly transferred his baby daughter to the car and swiftly shut the door so as to minimize her contact with the cold wind.
According to Jayne Stars, Benny praised his daughter for being well-behaved and added:
“The most important thing is that she is healthy.”
On the subject of her height and weight, Benny said:
“She weighed less than both siblings when they were born, but she was the tallest at birth.”
He added that three children are enough, but would be happy if the couple has another child.
Due to Benny’s busy work schedule, he will have to resume filming commitments in Mainland China after picking up wife and baby from the hospital.
He hopes to be able to spend the Christmas and New Year holidays with his family back in Hong Kong.
Asked if Lisa is unhappy that the family will be briefly separated immediately after Isabella’s birth, Benny laughed and said:
“She is very understanding. We now have three children, so I need to work harder to raise them. She is also thinking of visiting me when the timing is suitable!”
Finding success in the Mainland market, Benny admitted that he does not have plans to return to the Hong Kong entertainment industry anytime soon.
“I signed with a Taiwanese company, whose main focus is the Mainland market.”
