Hong Kong supermodel Kathy Chow gave birth to a baby boy via Caesarean section yesterday. Kathy’s husband of French ethnicity, Julien Lepeu, found it hard to contain his excitement and praised his newborn son’s handsome facial features. The baby weighed 7.2 pounds at birth and is named Jacques.
Yesterday morning, Kathy was seen entering Canossa Hospital located in the Mid-Levels district. Julien was spotted in the hospital later in the afternoon carrying a bag of supplies. That night at around 8:30p.m., Julien, Niki Chow, a close friend, and Kathy’s assistant left the hospital together.
In an extremely excited mood, Julien shared that both his wife and son are doing well after the operation, and that he would return to the hospital later to stay with Kathy throughout the night. Kathy’s assistant revealed that Julien had witnessed the entire birth procedure, but because he was overly nervous, he did not cut the umbilical cord.
Kathy’s good friend, Kenny Bee, visited her in the hospital with his wife and elder daughter that evening. The family expressed Kathy was already awake at the time and that they have also seen the baby.
Before entering the hospital to get ready for birth, Kathy uploaded a photo of having dinner with her husband. They each held a glass of red wine and were giving a toast. Some netizens wondered if Kathy still drank alcohol during her pregnancy.
