Wang Feng, a 48-year-old veteran rock musician, also shared this post on his account and commented in more detail, “It was the second time I stood by my wife, holding her hand tight, and welcoming our baby. Once again I feel the hardships and greatness of a mother. Thank you my wife, thank you for giving this family a super-healthy and super-loud son weighing 3.6 kg on such a wonderful day – the very first day of the 2020 decade. I’m extremely happy and mother and son are both safe and sound.”
Though Wang had several love affairs in the past, this is his first son. Wang has three daughters: two from his previous marriages, and a third daughter nicknamed Xing Xing who is now 4-years-old. Xing Xing is the first child that Zhang Ziyi and he had.
