Taipei — Jimmy Lin’s eldest son, Kimi who is famous for his role in Dad, Where Are We Going? may be 11 years old, but he is getting to be almost as tall as his father. In 2019, Lin, who is 1.72m tall, said his son was already 1.4m tall when he was aged nine. Kimi has grown much taller over the past two years, reported 8days.sg. Lin said his son is so tall that their height difference now is “less than the length of a handphone” or around 10cm. Lin posted the ‘proof’ on social media too.
The 46-year-old Taiwanese star took to Weibo on Feb 19 to upload a photo of Kimi’s height which the family measures against a wall.
“After this winter’s break, older brother Kimi’s grown considerably taller, the height difference between us is less than a mobile phone’s length now. If this keeps up, Kimi will be taller than his dad soon.” Lin wrote.
Netizens may be curious where Kimi got his height from.
Lin and his model-actress wife, Kelly Chen, 37, both are about 1.7m tall. Chen apparently comes from a family of really tall people. Her father is 1.9m tall.
