Despite being told by a gynaecologist that conceiving at her age would be difficult, 42-year-old Carole Lin successfully got pregnant after just two months of trying for a baby with her American-born Korean husband David Lim.
On August 19, the actress gave birth to an SG50 baby girl, five days ahead of her August 24 due date. The child was delivered via C-section due to low amniotic fluid.
“David and I are excited to announce the birth of our beautiful daughter, Brooklyn Lim, today. Brooklyn was born on 19 August 2015, at around 6.48pm, weighing a healthy 3kg at Mount Elizabeth Hospital. I had a smooth delivery and am recovering well,” Carole shared in a statement, also thanking well-wishers, the hospital staff and Dr Ann Tan, who was also Vivian Hsu’s obstetrician.
She continued, “We appreciate all the advice and recommendations offered by our friends and family; and with chiropractic care by my husband, I truly enjoyed a healthy and smooth pregnancy. We have been eagerly looking forward to embarking on the special journey, and are so happy that little Brooklyn is finally here. She is such a blessing to us and we hope that she will be a blessing to the people around her as well.”
Carole and David, 39, met at a social gathering for chiropractic care specialists. After about four years of dating, David proposed to Carole, who had just returned from filming her last drama The Journey: A Voyage overseas, with a painting of his own. The couple exchanged vows in an intimate, spring-themed ceremony at W Singapore on June 22 last year.
In addition to being husband and wife (and now father and mother), David and Carole are also the Director and Creative Consultant respectively at Wellness for Life Chiropractic, which David co-founded in 2007. This is her third marriage since 1999.
Lin's second marriage was to a Frenchman named Bertrand Gouge from 2008 to 2010.
Her first marriage lasted three years until 2002.
