Ever since Hong Kong singer Daniel Chan announced that his Taiwanese wife Wang Yuxian is pregnant, the daddy-to-be has been very excited about the impending birth of his daughter, even proudly showing off the ultrasound scans of the foetus.
And whenever the 38-year-old visits his eight-month pregnant wife in Taiwan, where she is currently residing with her family, he brings along huge packages of maternity tonics and baby products, such as a baby pram and basket, with him.
According to Taiwanese media reports, his luggage was overweight by 39kg and he had to pay NT5,000 (approximately S$208) for excess baggage at the Hong Kong airport two days ago.
He told reporters that the numerous gifts were from his friends, and even called himself a ‘porter’ to deliver the goods.
Daniel had, in fact, been a ‘porter’ on several occasions, and had even brought a baby cot over to Taiwan once. He has been flying to Taiwan so often that he even said in jest: “I’ll apply for residency in Taiwan.”
Yuxuan, 26, will give birth in Taiwan in July and the actor had reportedly purchased a NT120 million (approximately S$4.92 million) home there last month but has not gotten ownership of the place yet. When asked if the child would be residing long-term in Taiwan, he said: “Many people can help take care of the baby.”
It is understood that Daniel will be staying in Taiwan for a week, and will fly to China subsequently to shoot new drama Brave Lover – his first TV series since his marriage.
Daniel and Yuxian, formerly a nurse, had been dating for nine months before they tied the knot in February in Hong Kong.
