On April 10, Lai Lok Yi (黎諾懿) and his wife Nicole Lee (李潔瑩) welcomed the arrival of their baby boy. Although they have not chosen a name yet, the couple nicknamed their son, “Little Spring Chicken”. After a four-day stay in the hospital, mother and baby were both discharged on April 14. The family of three greeted reporters outside the hospital.
Despite his smaller frame, Little Spring Chicken has very handsome features and a head full of hair. Lok Yi joked, “The nurse said that my son had so much hair, they had to style it. They can tell with one look that he is my son. Actually, I think that no matter what angle you look at him, he resembles my wife more. Hopefully when he grows up, he’ll look more like his mother. A male with feminine features is more handsome.”
The 36-year-old first-time father humorously recalled his first experience with changing diapers, which resulted in Little Spring Chicken urinating on him. Lok Yi said, “I didn’t think it would happen so fast. Not even two seconds later, the ‘water hose’ sprayed towards me. I didn’t think a baby would have the energy to spray so high. I may not even be able to! It doesn’t matter that he wet me, but he wet himself on the face and started crying. My wife taught me that the next time I change his diapers, I should use a cloth to cover it. When we took the elevator just now, I even told my son “Give me some face. When you see reporters later, don’t cry. Don’t make your Dad look like such an amateur.”
