Here’s some wonderful news to cap off the week from Joyce Chao who recently announced that she’s about to be a mum! Whether it’s a boy or a girl … this evening’s gender reveal for baby Dian Dian 典典 just confirmed the excited mum-to-be and her husband Renzo Liu ….. are having a girl! *Wooop* Congratulations!
The road to pregnancy has been a long one for the couple who got married in 2016. After several failed attempts to conceive, they suffered through a miscarriage last year after getting pregnant through IVF. On an interview last March, Renzo revealed he was quite distressed for his wife. He said he really hoped this was the last time they’ll be doing IVF. Watching his wife go through the process again – the injections and medicines, her swollen face all whilst still dealing with the grief of her miscarriage really couldn’t have been easy.v
Thankfully, it seems the couple is well on their way to being parents. Baby Dian Dian, as Joyce has taken to calling the baby, is currently 30 weeks old and healthy. Nonetheless, until the stork delivers, the 42-year-old said she’ll take every precaution to ensure the baby is born healthy. Joyce also adds that by sharing her pregnancy journey, she hopes other women in the same situation will find courage and encouragement.
Joyce Chao and Renzo Liu both appeared in the hit Taiwanese drama The Prince Who Turns into a Frog.
Update: On July 5, it was reported that Joyce Chao was suddenly rushed to the hospital when she went into labor the night before. And it looks like the happy couple have become new parents six years after marriage. Their manager revealed to ETTODAY, “Mom and daughter are safe, thanks for everyone’s concern.”
