HONG KONG – Former TVB actress Linda Chung is now a mum of three.

The 38-year-old announced the birth of her third child, a girl, on Facebook and Instagram on Thursday with a series of photos.

In one photo, she is seen kissing the forehead of the newborn, while in another, the baby, dressed in pink, is sleeping. A third photo shows five hands, presumably that of her entire family.

The Canada-born star and her chiropractor husband Jeremy Leung, who is 13 years her senior, already have a daughter Kelly, six, and son Jared, four.

“We’d like to introduce our newest family member, Anika Linda Leung,” she wrote in the caption.

“We are officially a family of five now,” she said, adding the emojis of a pig, mouse, monkey, dog and tiger to represent the animals of the Chinese zodiac signs.

Chung apologised for not posting earlier, as they “wanted to be fully present during this special time”, and revealed the weight of the baby as 7 pounds 8 ounces (3.4kg).

She added the hashtags #7lbs8oz, #LibraTiger and #positivehomebirth.

Congratulations poured in on Instagram in the comment section from celebrity pals such as Fala Chen, Aimee Chan, Gloria Tang and Gigi Lai, with the post garnering more than 52,000 likes in five hours.
