Korean actress Kim Tae Hee just gave birth to a daughter! The 37-year-old and her superstar husband, Rain, welcomed their firstborn yesterday after announcing Tae Hee’s pregnancy in June.

Rain posted a photo of a baby’s booties, along with the caption, “Thank you. She’s a pretty princess. I will raise you well to be a child who will help the world.”


The couple got married in January after dating for about four years. They first met while filming a commercial together in 2011, but only started dating in late 2012.

On last year’s episode of Return of Superman, a variety show where male celebrities take care of their kids without their wives for 48 hours, Kim Tae Hee had told Lee Beom Soo, who was visiting her with his kids, that she wanted to have a daughter. She said, “In the past, I wanted a son, but now I want a daughter who is like a friend.”

Looks like her wish came true!

According to a Korean media outlet, Insight, the couple has chosen to store the baby’s umbilical cord at a blood bank. Cord blood can be used in the treatment of various diseases.
