Heavenly King Aaron Kwok confirmed the birth of his child on Friday morning (Sept 22), reported Apple Daily.
At 10.56am, the pop star posted a picture on Weibo of a baby's hand holding on to two fingers and wrote: "Happy, amazing, grateful! Us three! (two smiley faces, baby emoji) Grow, family, protect! (three smiley faces)"
The post has garnered over 28,800 likes and over 3,600 messages, mostly of congratulations.
It had been rumoured that Kwok, 51, and his wife, model Moka Fang, 29, had quietly welcomed a daughter early this month. The couple had tied the knot in April this year.
While the post did not reveal the gender nor birth date of his child, Apple Daily pointed to the use of the colour pink in Kwok's post as confirmation of the rumour.
The star has reportedly been keeping mum because during a Mother's Day celebration, his mother had urged him to "protect his own family well". He hence decided not to keep others informed of his family matters, saying: "I know everyone wants to care about me, but I respect my mother's opinions."
Kwok is slated to appear in at least two movies next year, fantasy flick The Monkey King 3 and action film Project Gutenberg with Chow Yun Fat.
