Wu Chun to welcome second child
The Bruneian heartthrob dropped another bomb following his shocking confession on Tuesday about his marriage and parenthood. At his book launch press conference in Taipei yesterday, Wu Chun announced that his wife of four years is pregnant again with a baby boy.
“Another little boy will be born at the end of this month,” said the 33-year-old, who is set to become dad for the second time.
Wu Chun, who previously denied reports about his marital status, was criticised for his dishonesty and reprimanded for being unprofessional at the press conference. “You’re an idol. You should have to responsibility to be honest!” a reporter remarked angrily.
In 2011, Taiwanese tabloids published a photo of Wu Chun holding and playing with a four-month-old baby girl. Back then, the singer called it an untrue speculation and even threatened to sue the reporter who took the photo.
Knowing that he owes members of the press an apology for his cover-up, Wu Chun took a three-second bow and explained, “That child was indeed not mine. She was my sister-in-law’s daughter. But I admit that when the story first made headlines, I could not handle it and therefore chose to deny.”
He added, “I feel really sorry, especially towards my agency as my manager had no idea about it then.”
The press conference proceedings, which fell into an awkward silence after his statement, was revived by Matilda Tao, the host for the afternoon. She explained that there were many other celebrities who, like Wu Chun, kept their marriage and childrena secret and urged the reporters to keep their cool.
Meanwhile, Wu Chun revealed that he wanted to come clean earlier, but his wife insisted on keeping a low profile. “I respect that my other half does not want to be exposed. In my heart, my family is the most important and so I made the decision to protect them,” he said.
When asked about his wife’s response to the hype, the seemingly nervous actor-singer pondered for a moment and replied, “Maybe after she has become a mother, she is able to deal with this bravely and knowing that I have always wanted to share this news with my fans, she took a great leap of courage to come to terms with it.”
