Constance Song Has A “Third Baby”, But It’s Not What You Might Be Thinking
Actress Constance Song has a “third baby”. A biz baby, that is.
The 47-year-old has partnered a home baker friend to launch a line of wholesome cookies, which includes a lactation cookie range for breastfeeding mums. Called Ole & Elo, it’s named after her two daughters, Olethea, five, and Eloise, two.
Lactation products are specially developed to include healthy ingredients to nourish new mums and help them boost their breast milk supply. The idea for the venture came about last year when Constance was trying to lose her baby weight after gaving birth to Eloise.
“I noticed my milk supply dropped by 50 per cent after I cut carbs out of my diet. So, one day when I was chatting with my friend, who is an avid baker, I suggested we start a business selling lactation cookies as well as healthier cookies,” Constance tells 8days.sg. For the cookie lover, it was also important that the bakes are “yummy” as many of the lactation cookies she tried were “dry, bland and not tasty”.
“It took us nine months to R&D and finally launch the cookies. This is why I call this business my third baby,” she laughs.
