Baby on board Darren Lim's boat

This baby won't need anyone to rock him to sleep - his home will be doing that for him.

Local actor Darren Lim and former actress-host Evelyn Tan's newborn son Elliott will return to his boat home, after spending his first month on land when Tan finishes her confinement at her mother's home.

The Lims, who have three other children - daughter Kristen, eight, sons Jairus, six, and Way, four - have been living on a yacht for the past year at ONE°15 Marina Club at the Sentosa Cove marina.

They upgraded from a two-room Beneteau Oceanis 37 yacht to a three-room Lagoon 400S2 catamaran in September.

"Elliott can sleep to a natural rocking motion," Lim told The New Paper over the phone on Monday.

Tan, 39, gave birth to her fourth child, who weighed 3.43kg, on Sunday.

It was a "smooth, natural delivery", said her proud 40-year-old husband, adding that Tan did not opt for any epidural anaesthesia. She did not do so either for her previous deliveries.

Tan is due to be discharged from Thomson Medical Centre today.

He said: "She didn't scream in pain, just some moaning. I'm so impressed by her. She also looked much better than when she delivered our first child.

"She looked so fresh and energised (after giving birth)."

Lim shared that Kristen was originally disappointed that she didn't get a "mei mei" (younger sister), but the "only princess" is now happy to be the big sister and is already helping out in whatever way she can, for instance, by helping to teach Way.
