Blissful. That’s how Andie Chen describes his life now as a stay-at-home dad. That word would have probably been “hell” if you checked with him two weeks ago. But things are very different now that he has settled into his new role as his kids Aden and Avery’s “primary caretaker” in Taipei, where they currently reside.
In case you haven’t heard, the Chen family relocated to their “second home” some two months ago as the actor has some job opportunities on the horizon. Andie and wife, actress Kate Pang, also felt it was a chance to expose their kids to another culture.
“Our long term plan has always been to have two bases, so Kate and I will be working in Singapore and Taiwan. My wife is Taiwanese, my kids are half-Taiwanese, and I am a Taiwan PR, so to us, this has always been a home for us. My kids have been living in Singapore all their life and I think since we have an opportunity to live in another country and meet different people, why not?” he tells 8days.sg.
