Ruco Chan Apologizes for Phoebe Sin’s MistakeGrace
The Hong Kong entertainment industry has been filled with many happy announcements of pregnancies and births recently. At Grace Chan’s (陳凱琳) baby shower last week, Ruco Chan‘s (陳展鵬) wife Phoebe Sin (單文柔) received some backlash from fans for revealing Grace’s baby gender on social media before the host herself. As it was Grace’s special moment, netizens felt the news should have been announced by Grace instead.
Although Phoebe has already apologized on Instagram that in her excitement she made the post too quickly, Ruco was also asked to comment on the incident. Standing up for his wife, Ruco said, “She was a little upset yesterday, but she had already notified Grace beforehand and gotten her permission before posting. Grace was also the one who gave her the proper hashtags to use. After Grace got calls from the media, she called my wife immediately to communicate so their friendship is not affected at all.”
As both Phoebe and Grace had babies the same year and are now working as social influencers, they became quite close. Understanding the unspoken rules of social media where you need someone’s approval first before posting a photo of someone, Ruco believes that this is just a small issue between Phoebe and Grace. He declared, “I told my wife that if she did something wrong, then she must admit to it. If it is a misunderstanding, then she must explain herself. If anything goes wrong, I will take care of it. She is my wife, so it is my responsibility to teach her.”
Currently filming Super Emissary <超能使者>, Ruco is surrounded by fathers on the set. After co-star Joel Chan (陳山聰) welcomed a baby boy, Ruco exclaimed that he has prepared a large red pocket for the baby and hopes that he will grow up healthy. He joked that he should form a daddy group because all male actors on the set are already fathers, with the exception of Sammy Sum (沈震軒). Due to the pandemic, Ruco he does not plan on sending his daughter to a playgroup but is preparing for her entrance into the school system.
