SM Entertainment announced that Chen and his wife have welcomed a baby.
Further reports tell us the couple had their daughter at Cheongdam Marie Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinic in Gangnam-gu today (April 29th). And Social Media has been ablaze with congratulations ever since.
Within hours incredible fan art started popping up. Below is a smattering of some of the best we've seen so far.
@alyarzaidi shared a manhwa style imagining of the baby girl's extended EXO family.
And @Mimiwu_00 shared a sweet illustration of Daddy Chen and his little princess, asking what you think she might be named.
Soraya @soraygadori tweets, "Congratulations, Chen, you've become a father. And the exo_i became aunts <3 <3 <3 <3 #WelcomEXOPrincess"
Chen announced his surprise marriage and pregnancy in January with a handwritten letter for his fans. In it, he wrote, "I have a girlfriend who wants to be with me forever. Blessings came to us. I was very embarrassed, but I was more empowered with the blessing."
We are sure that this new arrival will prove to be a huge blessing to her parents and doting EXO uncles. And the myriad of "aunties" in the fandom.
@Kim_Souhi shared: "Congratulaions jongdae-yaa! You're a father now. Take care of your cute baby daughter and your lovely wife. I hope your family always happy! We love you forever. I'm soooo happy. #CHEN #WelcoEXOPrincess #WeAreOne @weareoneEXO" with a sweet drawing of father and daughter.
Congratulations from all of us at K*Boom! Online Canada!
