With all the Spring Festival celebrations having come to a close last week, we’ve officially ushered in the Year of the Ox. On Feb. 14, the 38-year-old actress Fala Chen announced that she’s a new mom to a baby girl who’s revealed to be nicknamed “Little Minnie.”
She let slip that she gave birth towards the tail-end of the Year of the Rat saying, “It isn’t easy to go through pregnancy, but from the moment I saw her, I felt that everything was worth it. We are very happy to start being a new mom and dad!” Fala also shared a photo of the new family of three holding each other’s hands and a solo shot from when she was pregnant.
Fala Chen and her French husband Emmanuel Straschnov got married in 2019. Even though Fala is known to share photos through her social media updates, the couple have managed to keep quiet about the pregnancy which is why the news of the baby’s arrival came as a nice surprise to many.
Formerly a TVB actress, Fala Chen is now based in the United States. She’s also expected to appear in the upcoming Marvel film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
