Shortly after their fairy tale wedding ceremony in England in January, Hannah confirmed her pregnancy but expressed she would keep the due date a surprise for the time being.
Many speculated that Hannah, who carried the baby to full-term, was already pregnant since last October. However, the couple kept the pregnancy a secret until April. Jay’s relatives confirmed that Hannah gave birth via C-section to a healthy baby girl on July 10.
Although Jay has yet to upload a photo of the little princess, and has revealed little information about the baby, Jay did confirm that both mother and daughter were doing well.
Good friend Will Lau (劉畊宏) advised Jay to cherish the first moments following a baby’s birth. As Jay is thrilled to become a father for the first time, he will take a hiatus of 40 days to enjoy this special time with Hannah and their daughter.
According to Asian Pop News, Jay’s agency said that Jay initially wanted to post his baby photo, but later changed his mind. The manager said it would be up to Jay to decide if he wished to share his baby photos on the social media.
It is reported that even Jay’s working crew had not seen his baby yet.
