Love 972 deejay Violet Chen Fen Ying gave birth to her daughter safely at Gleneagles Hospital yesterday (August 25)!

xinmsn did a phone interview with Violet shortly afterwards and the 40-year-old sounded energetic despite the arduous process.

Violet revealed that she first felt the painful sensation at midnight on the 25th but had dismissed it as a regular stomach pain. Violet\\\’s son even asked to see his sister.

\\\”I\\\’m very sad,\\\” said her son to her amusement when she told him it was just a regular stomachache.

However, the stomach pain persisted till 3 A.M. before she decided to go to the hospital. She started experience labour pains and went into labour at around noon.

\\\”I had more trouble giving birth this time compared to my first child. I just kept shouting throughout and my hubby was very worried too.\\\”

Apparently, Violet\\\’s baby\\\’s position had made it difficult for Violet to \\\’push\\\’ her out and it took three nurses for the process to go smoothly.

When asked about her feelings on becoming a mother for a second time, Violet said, \\\”I\\\’m very happy! The baby didn\\\’t cry at the beginning and gave me a good scare. Good thing it was a false alarm.\\\”

Violet has yet to decide on a Chinese name for her daughter but said that her daughter\\\’s English name will be Radiance.

So is she hoping for her daughter to always look radiant and happy?

\\\”It\\\’s because since I got pregnant with her, I\\\’ve been looking very radiant from all the bird\\\’s nest I\\\’ve been drinking!\\\” replied Violet, not forgetting to plug the bird\\\’s nest endorsement deal she has with Huiji tonics.

Radiance\\\’s addition to the family has lighted up the family\\\’s life and even the extended family is exhilarated.

\\\”My in-laws have three sons and three grandsons; Radiance is the first female descendant so everyone is really happy.\\\”

Violet is now recuperating in the Tanglin Suite in Gleneagles; Chinese actress Vicki Zhao was said to have stayed in the same executive suite too, which costs over S$4000 per night, when giving birth to her daughter.

\\\”I\\\’m not sure about the suite; the hospital automatically upgraded me to the suite.\\\”

\\\”But if Vicki Zhao really stayed here then it\\\’s quite an honour!\\\”

Violet is scheduled to return to work in November.



Elva Hsiao: I am single!

By on August 30th, 2010 | Chinese Entertainment, newsfeed

Taiwanese singer Elva Hsiao puts an end to rumours that she has been seeing singer Nick Zhou by declaring that she is single.

The singer turned 31 yesterday (Aug 24) but she was still busy with preparations for her upcoming concert in Singapore next month.

Her good friend and colleague Show Luo turned up to surprise Elva with a large birthday cake and a present: a diamond-studded bra.

A bemused Elva looked at the present and said that it actually ‘looks too small’.

“I’ll wear it for Show next year on his birthday; maybe I’ll have to alter it to a bigger size first.”

For her birthday, Elva wished for good album sales and good health for her family and friends.

When asked about love affairs, Elva briefly replied that she is ‘still single’, indirectly denying previous reports that she has been seeing Nick.

Reports about the two stars seeing each other surfaced when Nick was said to have lent support to Elva when the latter’s mother passed away earlier.

In May, they were seen going on a date and were in a car headed towards Elva’s place.

Nick’s manager responded on Nick’s behalf, saying that they were just friends.

“They’ve always been just colleagues and friends; please don’t read too much into it.”

In the days that followed, the two stars were extremely cautious and were never seen together until Saturday, when reporters caught them leaving the hotel together.

Stephen appeared furious but Vivian was calm, saying, \\\”Please give us the time and space we need!\\\”

When reporters asked Vivian if she was worried about their relationship, Stephen immediately butted in, asking \\\”What relationship? What are you talking about?\\\”
