Taiwanese celebrity couple Christine Fan and Blackie Chen announced on Facebook yesterday morning that they are expecting a pair of twins. The lovebirds sealed their 11 years of courtship in marriage three years ago.
On their individual platforms, the parents-to-be wrote: “Thank God for blessing us with two little lives. Thanks everyone for the concern. We’ve got [a pair of] twins.”
In a separate Instagram post, Christine revealed that they have nicknamed the babies “Big Panda” and “Small Panda”, as the twins were conceived after she slipped in the toilet and received 20 stitches near her left brow in June. Back then, the singer cancelled all work activities to recover from her injury.
Rumours of her pregnancy sparked when she rejected the Ice Bucket Challenge and chose to donate money instead. When probed on his wife’s status, Blackie claimed that Christine “has always been afraid of the cold”.
After the good news was announced, the couple’s celebrity friends and fans expressed their well wishes, while some netizens “warned” Blackie not to pull pranks on his wife anymore.
