Hong Kong actor Benny Chan reportedly applied for a month’s leave to take care of his wife Lisa Jiang, who gave birth to their second child Cyrus Chan two weeks ago, and their two kids.
Besides helping Lisa with her confinement needs, Benny also used the opportunity to spend time with his elder daughter Chan Nga-yu who was recently hospitalised for fever-induced seizures.
The dedicated dad was in charge of all the meals at home, as well as the feeding, bathing and changing of diapers for the newborn baby. Having experienced the tedious job of looking after the children, Benny expressed his admiration for his wife’s patience.
The actor also admitted that he is “most afraid” of baby stools. “There was once when I was changing his diapers while talking on the phone. I was so shocked when I unknowingly touched his urine and poo that I dropped my phone on the floor,” he said.
Benny, who celebrated his 44th birthday yesterday, expressed his wish for his two kids “to grow up healthily and happily”, and hinted at the possibility of having a third child in the future.
