Yao Ming has become a father! Yesterday, a moment after becoming a dad, the excited Yao Ming said that becoming a father is happiest experience and he doesn't care whether the child is a boy or a girl.
"I think that compared to other matters, becoming a father is without doubt the most happy experience", said Yao Ming. "Right now I am still very excited and I wish to thank everyone for their concern about my family and my daughter." Yao Ming didn't forget to speak of the future of his daughter, hoping that she will be able to grow up happily.
Not long after Yao Ming's daughter was born, many media reporters have already rushed to the hospital. One reporter joked and asked Yao Ming whether he wants to 'exceed birth' (have more kids than allowed by the birth control policy), Yao Ming answered with a big laugh: "I don't have money, so I won't give birth (money to pay the fine for an 'extra' child)." However, Yao Ming by no means wants his daughter to grow in the center of media attention, and he has even stronger wishes that she will receive a comfortable and peaceful growing environment.
"I hope she will grow healthily, happily and peacefully", said Yao Ming. I don't care whether the child is a boy or a girl, having a boy is the same as having a girl. My only wish is that the child will grow healthily, happily and peacefully. Furthermore, I wish to thank again everybody for their concern about my daughter, myself and my family.
超生 (chāoshēng) - 'Surpass birth', having more births than permitted by China's birth control regulations.
