A National Day baby for Fann Wong

Local actress Fann Wong gave birth to a baby boy on National Day.

Local actress Fann Wong gave birth to a National Day baby, and it's a boy.

At about 8.40pm yesterday, just minutes after the end of the National Day Parade, the 43-year-old celebrity, who is married to fellow actor Christopher Lee, posted a photo of her newborn on her Instagram account (@fannaiaiwong). It ended months of speculation about the baby's gender, which the couple had chosen not to find out. Addressing the baby as Zed, the new mother wrote in Chinese: "Daddy and Mummy cannot express in words the joy of seeing you; welcome to our family, because of you our lives will become fuller. August 9 is the most gorgeous day for us."
