EXO Chen is Expecting His Second Child

Chen, whose real name Kim Jongdae is a member of EXO, a K-pop boy group under SM Entertainment. EXO debuted in 2012 as a South Korean-Chinese group, which has two subgroups; EXO-K and EXO-M. Chen was a member of the Mandarin subgroup, EXO-M, and his position was the main vocalist. In 2014-2015, three EXO-M members, Kris, Luhan, and Tao, filed a lawsuit against SM Entertainment, which resulted in their withdrawal from the group. Since then, EXO continued their promotion as one whole group with nine members. 

Chen released his solo album on April 1st, 2019. The album’s name is April and a Flower, which has six songs with Beautiful Goodbye as the title track. The album entered Gaon Album Chart and peaked at #2. It was also nominated as Album of The Year at the 2019 Melon Music Awards but unfortunately did not win.

In early January 2020, Chen announced that he was going to marry his non-celebrity girlfriend. Through a handwritten letter, he also revealed her fiancé was pregnant with his first child. His first child was born on April 29th, three months after the marriage. On October 26th, Chen, born on September 21st, 1992, enlisted for mandatory military service as an active-duty soldier. Ten days before his military enlistment, Chen released a digital single titled “Hello”

A year and ten months after his marriage, on November 16th, Naver reported that Chen’s wife is currently expecting their second child. On the same day, SM Entertainment confirmed the news. Hope for both the baby and the mother are healthy.
