Before delivering a baby most mothers would be nervous but Ada Choi was the definition of calm.
The Hong Kong actress was so cheerful that she bantered with husband Max Zhang in the maternity room before she gave birth to their third child in the hospital last week.
46-year-old Ada asked her husband in Mandarin whether he was nervous.
“No, I’m not ‘jin zhang’ (nervous),” he replied jokingly on his Chinese name Zhang Jin.
On November 22, in a vlog Max shared on Weibo, both Ada and Max had fun in front of the camera, much to the amusement of Chinese netizens.
Max was seen counting down the minutes when Ada was wheeled into surgery for Caesarean section and he waited on a bench outside the room.
Max met his son for the very first time an hour later to cut his umbilical cord.
46-year-old Ada said the delivery, which took 30 minutes, was smooth due to her ‘youth’.
Max shared how he thinks mothers deserve more credit than fathers for bringing children into the world while Ada rested in the maternity room.
The actor revelled every time the couple welcomed a child into the family.
The next day, daughters Zoe, 8 and Chloe, 6 entered the room to greet their baby brother with gentle kisses on his forehead.
Ada cradled the newborn in her arms and sang a lullaby to her son.
Zhang Jin was born May 19, 1974, and is better known as Max Zhang. He is a former wushu athlete and a Chinese actor who won the Best Supporting Actor at the 33rd Hong Kong Film Awards.
