What Happened When Baby Qi And Joanne Peh Made A Surprise Visit At Our Qi Yuwu Cover Shoot?

Joanne Peh walks into a bar. A whiskey library, to be exact. Hot on her heels is a middle-aged lady cradling a toddler, who turns out to be — gasp! — Baby Qi. We know this the second we clap eyes on the très adorbs tyke. Not ’cos she’s trailing tightly behind Mrs Peh, but ’cos Joanne Jr looks like the spitting image of her mum. Joanne, despite rocking the #nomakeup look today, is positively glowing. But it’s her mini-me who has piqued our interest. The too-cute-for-playschool cherub, who’s accompanied by her nanny today, has big, beautiful eyes like marbles, a perky nose and bow-like lips. She’s clad in a girly striped dress with a blue whale backpack slung over her shoulders. And she’s got mum to thank for those enviably slender, long limbs. In a flash, Qi Yuwu slinks over to us and the camera crew, gently reminding us not to take any photos of his daughter.


In case you haven’t been keeping up with the Qis, aka local showbiz’s power couple Qi Yuwu and Joanne Peh, the fiercely-protective parents have a strict rule of not exposing their kids’ mugs. Just scroll through their socials, which are chockfull of shots of their kids, known to the public only as Baby Qi and Qi Di Di. Their faces are never seen — instead, you get the back of a head here, a limb there, or top-down views of them. There’s even a teasing side profile or two, but the Qi-blings are never shown in full face glory.


That air of mystery just makes super kaypoh folks like us all the more curious. Well, lucky us, ’cos today, we finally get to see the oh-so-elusive Baby Qi in the flesh. Joanne’s very amiable nanny strolls over to us with Baby Qi to say hi. We shake hands, coo hellos and make eye contact with the shy toddler who stares back at us with wide-eyed curiosity. For the next half hour or so, Baby Qi is subdued. No cooing, gurgling, canonical babbling, screaming for mummy, nothing. The munchkin silently soaks up the sights and sounds of her surrounds, exuding inquisitive charm and fascination with the world. We later learn that the two-year-old tot is acutely shy around strangers, but turns wet market-noisy in front of familiar faces. “She comes here, doesn’t make noise. In the car, di di da da [she rattles on nonstop],” grouses a mock resigned Joanne, who’s channelling casual chic in a grey blouse, pencil denim skirt and sensible flats.
