Benny Chan becomes dad for the second time
Hong Kong actor Benny Chan and his Chinese model wife, Lisa Jiang, welcomed a new addition in their family yesterday morning. The baby boy was delivered via caesarean section at around 10am, weighing 3.4kg at birth.
Despite being a second-time dad, the 44-year-old admitted that it was still very “nerve-wracking”. However, the couple did not choose a special date for delivery this time round. “What matters most is for the mother and child to be well,” Benny explained.
“The boy is very active. He looks like me with his round face and chubby cheeks, but he actually resembles his elder sister (Chan Nga-yu) the most.”
While speaking to the media, the proud dad announced the baby’s name to be “Chen Jing Xuan”, and shared that his son has been nicknamed “Ah Eight”, as he was born on the day Typhoon Usagi (which had tropical cyclone warning signal No. 8) hit Hong Kong.
The actor, who was previously busy with filming in China, has returned to Hong Kong after taking one month’s leave to spend time with his family. “I will continue working hard to give my family the best life,” said Benny.
