Sun-ye of the K-pop group Wonder Girls has given birth to a daughter after eight hours.
The singer wrote on her Twitter account yesterday, “Thanks to many of your prayers and encouragement, I gave birth to a beautiful daughter in about eight hours.”
She also posted a photo of the baby’s hand and foot. Her agency JYP said that Sun-ye gave birth on Wednesday at home in Montreal, Canada, and the baby’s name is Park Eun-yu.
It also added that both mother and daughter are in good condition and Sunye will stay in Canada for a while as she recovers from the birth.
The girl group member met her husband James Park while on a missionary trip to Haiti in 2011.
They got married in January. “I am very thankful for the gifts congratulating the birth,” said Sunye. “I’ll raise her healthy and well.”
