Adia Chan (陳松伶) married her Chinese actor husband, Zhang Duo (张铎), who is 8 years her junior. She is a cast member on the Chinese variety show, “My Dearest Ladies 3” (婆婆和妈妈 3), which features the relationships between mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws. In the latest episode, it mentioned Adia Chan not having children due to health reasons. She revealed when she married Zhang Duo, she was already 40. He is also the only son and child in his family.
Adia Chan explained, “I deprived her the right to be a grandmother. In her eyes, having children is considered perfection. I indeed deprived it from her.” This confession led Adia Chan’s mother-in-law to tears. Adia Chan also thanked her mother-in-law for being tolerant of her and made her understand their interactions or the times when she feels uncomfortable with her.
Adia Chan’s mother-in-law responded, “Even though I won’t have the joy of family anymore and my journey on this road is shortened, my son’s journey is still very long. If my son is happy, you two are happy, then do I still need to chase after that type of family joy?” She continued to say that she can go dance, ski, and occupy herself with a lot of activities. She also comforted Adia Chan saying, “As we’re both women, we all want to be perfect. You don’t need to have thoughts or worries. Don’t think you’re depriving me of anything…”
After the episode aired, Adia Chan wrote a post on Weibo, one part of it said, “I never thought a woman’s meaning in life is to have children. It is also not an item on my bucket list that I must accomplish.” Zhang Duo also wrote a post and said, “Wife, you didn’t deprive anything, no need to feel any burden. Thankful to mom and dad for their understanding and tolerance. Love is the other name for understanding, love is beautiful this way.”
