Local singer Stefanie Sun may not release a photo of her newborn son or his name for some time, if at all, said her publicist.
A photograph of her hand holding her baby’s is all that she is willing to reveal at the moment, getting the idea from Hong Kong actor-singer Andy Lau who did the same thing with her daughter, who was born in May this year.
On Wednesday night, the 34-year-old pop star sent the photo via e-mail to the media through publicist Yvonne See. Along with it came a note that said her son’s temperament “like mine” and “his thick hair is like my husband’s”. Her son was born on Oct 30 at a local hospital.
In May 2011, Sun married her Dutch-Indonesian boyfriend, Mr Nadim van der Ros, now 35. The couple held a banquet for friends and family at the Capella hotel on Sentosa.
She does not intend to give press interviews for at least another two to three months.
In a phone call with Life!, her publicist, Ms Yvonne See, added that Sun thought she was well prepared for motherhood after doing much antenatal research but has since realised nothing can truly prepare for the reality.
The most important thing, the new mother has decided, is to develop her bond with her son even as she adjusts to her son’s breastfeeding regimen.
