Wu Chun’s (吳尊) earlier announcement that he is married and is already a father to a two-year old daughter greatly shocked the public. Furthermore, he revealed his wife is currently pregnant with their second child, who will be a boy.
Wu Chun exclaimed, “I would be very upset if I am unable to answer my daughter if she calls me ‘daddy’ on the streets! After much discussion, my wife decided it was the right time to let everyone know. I’m not going to avoid the press because I am prepared for news reports coming my way.”
On October 2, Wu Chun generously accepted a press conference to address the media’s questions, reports Jayne Stars and Ming Pao Weekly.
When a reporter claimed Wu Chun once denied being married and to being a father, he explained, “They only photographed my elder sister-in-law back then. The kid was my elder brother’s daughter. I felt very apologetic, because my brother was very unhappy. The reporters were always following around near my house.”
The reporter continued to press on, asking why he had lied about the matters earlier.
Wu Chun expressed, “I am willing to take on the criticism from the media. At the time, I was questioned too suddenly and I didn’t know how to respond. I also want to apologize to my manager and company, because they didn’t know about it either.” Wu Chun bowed and apologized several times at the press conference for having hidden the truth.
In a recent interview, Wu Chun opened up and spoke about his family. He laughed and revealed, “My daughter is actually partly from Hong Kong! My wife and I had her when I was in Hong Kong for work. She was made in Hong Kong.”
Speaking about his wife Lin Li Ying (林麗瑩), Wu Chun said they share similar personalities. “We understand each other and have been getting along very well for the past 18 years. We both know we shouldn’t take a lover for granted, so we put a lot of effort into the relationship.”
Wu Chun met Lin Li Ying when he was 16 years old. He revealed she is his brother-in-law’s relative.
“My brother-in-law kept wanting to introduce girls to me, so he set up a dinner date. At first I felt a little awkward, but I noticed she has a nice personality. I wanted to keep in touch with her, but I used to be a very shy guy. I held the phone in my hand for two hours without the courage to dial her number. My heart beat very fast, and I even wrote down what I wanted to say on a piece of paper.
"In the end, I turned out the lights and hid under my covers to make the call. We started going out for dates, but it was still an ambiguous relationship until we went to the beach one day. It was the first time I held her hand. I was crazily in love at the time. We talked over the phone for two hours every day and I always drove her home from school.”
Wu Chun revealed his wedding was a simple one. “It took place at my house. Only our relatives were there. We didn’t invite any of our friends that year, so I would like to hold another celebration party and celebrate with some friends.”
Wu Chun continued and expressed, “My wife wants to keep life low-profile and I respect her decision. I lied to the press in order to protect our relationship. We have discussed this and decided it’s now the right time to share everything.
"In the past, we always had to walk on the streets with a large group of people. I couldn’t walk alone with my wife and daughter. My wife knew I felt really unnatural and uncomfortable. You guys think I’m brave, but she’s actually the one who’s brave.”
