It’s a girl. Pop superstar Jay Chou and model Hannah Quinlivan have welcomed their first child, their agents said on Monday night.
The confirmation came after rumours went round that Quinlivan, 2716周杰伦日：有一种青春叫周杰伦1, had given birth to a preterm baby by caesarean, said United Daily News.
Chou, 36, had been so secretive about the birth that even his long-time manager J.R. Yang, who lives in the same neighbourhood as him, did not know, said the report.
Later, the star said through his manager: “We had a daughter. Hannah and I are very happy.”
But the new father did not disclose the date of the baby’s birth, said the report.
In Taiwan and Hong Kong, it is customary for a celebrity baby birth to be accompanied by astrolgers’ predictions in the media, a scenario the singer was presumably hoping to avoid by withholding the date and time of his daughter’s birth.
Chou said he would share his news online later, when he is calmer, reported United Daily News. There have been no updates on the birth on his social media accounts.
