Macau casino tycoon, Stanley Ho (何鴻燊) and Angela Leong’s second son, Mario Ho (何猷君), proposed to his model girlfriend, Ming Xi (奚夢瑤), in May at one of his mom’s shopping malls in Shanghai. Back in July, they officially registered their marriage. There were pregnancy rumors swirling back in April, but Mario Ho denied it. After the proposal, the pregnancy rumors gained traction as many eyewitnesses said Ming Xi looked “fuller”. A few months ago, the two were also spotted shopping for baby carriages in Hong Kong. Today, Mario Ho announced him and Ming Xi welcomed their baby boy, Ronaldo.
Mario Ho wrote a long post on Instagram and Weibo saying:
“Long time no see. I want to share some good news with everyone. My wife and I, Ming Xi, are parents now!
Thanks to my wife, Xiao Ming. Accompanying her during her pregnancy to the delivery room, I only realized the sacrifices moms make. Back then, she used to jump around a lot, after the pregnancy, it was inconvenient for her to walk. She also had to endure morning sickness and hard to control emotions. Moms suffer the most in this world. Thank you, wifey, for enduring through this period and helping me give birth to a cute and healthy baby.”
Mario Ho also mentioned that his father will be turning 98 years old next month. He mentioned how his father had always fulfilled his wishes as a child. He said, “As for him, he’s always had a wish that was never fulfilled. That is to hold his grandchild. Today, I can finally and happily tell him that he has a male grandchild! Our family finally has the fifth generation of sons.”
Mario Ho also explained the reasoning behind baby Ronaldo’s Chinese name, 何廣燊. He hoped Ronaldo would be like his grandfather, a legendary person who gave back to society. He also hoped he would be tall, handsome, and be naturally gifted. He also said, “I hope that through your own efforts, you can get recognition from the world, no pressure, son, no pressure!
He finished off the post saying, “Once again, thank you to my wife. You’re the best. I love you.
