Actress Myolie Wu has given birth to her newborn son Brendan Lee!

The 37 year old posted on her Instagram on October 13, with the caption “We are complete.”

Wu’s husband, businessman Philip Lee, 43, shared a picture of him carrying their first-born on his Instagram as well. He also shared that Wu would be on a traditional one month confinement.

Born via natural delivery, Brendan came out weighing around 3.6kg with “a good set of lungs”, according to the proud papa.

A few days after, Lee shared more of his thoughts on the difficulty of childbirth and breastfeeding, and gave a “salute to all mothers from the heart.”

 

Thank you everyone for your best wishes. We have been overwhelmed with love and Brendan is a lucky boy indeed. Many people have asked me how I feel now that he is born. And I would like to share some thoughts here. Basically I have told everyone that though I am totally in love with him, most of my focus has been, and should be, on his Mummy. While everyone has been doting on Brendan, it is so easy to forget about who gave the most. When a woman carries a child, the body goes through many changes for 40wks. As the due date gets closer, the nervousness of the delivery and anxiety and insecurity of physical, mental and life changes can overwhelm a mothers mind. Witnessing her labour, from the moment her water broke, going to hospital, and watching the contractions grow increasingly stronger over the hours from the excruciating expressions on her face – her refusal to take an epidural because she was so determined to feel a mothers sacrifice and love for our child through a natural birth. It was very difficult to stand by feeling helpless and just watch. I will never forget her fortitude. Trust me guys, us men are weak compared to the strength of a mother giving birth! And after the never ending contraction pain, the actual birth required superhuman strength to push, when there was absolutely nothing left to give, somehow she still found strength to give 100% again and again for nearly an hour. And now with physical pain all over the body, and breastfeeding, which does not allow Mummy to sleep and recover when she needs it the most. The immense pain and tiredness of full breastfeeding is so underestimated, and the mental determination to go through another cycle of physical suffering is just……humbling. To witness my Wife go through all of this – it isn’t enough but I can only say thank you Mrs Lee. ILY. After Brendan’s delivery I also had to give my mother a big hug for going through the same for me. A sincere salute to all mothers from the heart. They say a mothers love is like nothing else in the world….I think it is true. #pregnancy #motherhood #motherslove #mummy #mommy #breastfeeding #respect @myoliemyolie
