This is How Song Joong Ki’s Team Deceives the Media, Doesn’t Return to Korea, Spreads Rumors of Wife Giving Birth in England, but Secretly Allows Wife Katy Louise Saunders to Give Birth to Son in Italy.
Song Joong Ki and his team have received praise from netizens for successfully keeping the birth of his child a secret. Rather than giving birth to their first child in South Korea, Song Joong Ki and his wife chose Italy for this special occasion.
On the evening of June 14th, Song Joong Ki officially announced to the media and on his fancafe that he has become a father. His wife, Katy Louise Saunders, gave birth to their first child in Rome, Italy. The couple welcomed a baby boy, and both the mother and baby are in good health. However, many fans have wondered why Song Joong Ki and his wife decided to have their child in Italy instead of Korea, and why the couple had been frequently spotted in the capital city of Rome for several months.
The actor explained this in a letter to his fans, saying, “I am currently in Italy, and I finally witnessed the birth of my son in Rome – the hometown of my wife.” Song Joong Ki’s wife, born in 1984 in London, England, holds British citizenship and was previously an actress. It is known that she and her parents have lived in both England and Italy. After announcing their marriage at the end of 2022, Song Joong Ki and his wife flew to Europe for filming and temporary residence. After Song Joong Ki completed filming for the movie “My Name Is Loh Kiwan,” he and his wife stayed in Italy for several months, often seen enjoying romantic dates and shopping together on the streets of Rome.
However, prior to this, in order to deceive the media, a close acquaintance revealed that Song Joong Ki and Katy Louise Saunders had planned to have their first child in England, Katy’s homeland, instead of Korea. This action made it difficult for the media to investigate and bother Katy Louise Saunders and the newborn baby.
In his letter, Song Joong Ki expressed his excitement as their first child came into the world, stating, “I believe it is the most precious gift for my wife and me. My greatest dream is to build a happy family that lasts a lifetime.” The actor also thanked the support from his fans and promised to return with future film projects.
The news of Song Joong Ki becoming a father caused a stir on social media overnight. Many fans sent their blessings to the actor’s small family. Song Joong Ki and Katy Louise Saunders announced their marriage and pregnancy with their first child at the end of 2022. Wanting his wife to have a smooth childbirth in her homeland, Song Joong Ki brought her to Rome, Italy, which demonstrates the actor’s affection for his British wife.
