Wang Leehom probably counts as one of the most committed and responsible husbands and father in showbiz.
The singer-songwriter recently announced that he will be “going on leave” to prepare for the arrival of his third child, a baby boy, who is expected to arrive end-August.
This is his second time taking ‘paternity leave’ for his second daughter Wang Jiali, 1, with Lee Jinglei. He decided to take a two-month paternity leave in 2016 after he was inspired by what Mark Zuckerberg did.
Leehom shared that he hopes to accompany his wife as she “experiences bodily changes” during her last trimester. The hands-on dad also intends to take care of his wife’s needs and confinement meals after she gives birth, instead of getting additional help for it.
When he was praised for his thoughtful ways by netizens, Leehom expressed his hopes to share this experience with fellow husbands. “Accompanying a wife as she experiences bodily changes, taking care and giving her company is important,” he said. “Building up a relationship with children starts from zero.”
Leehom and Jinglei married in 2013 and have two daughters, Wang Jiana, 4, and Wang Jiali, 1, together.
