You might know Adrian Ang, 35, as SGAG’s co-founder and resident funny man through his online persona Xiao Ming, but according to his wife Goh Xin Lei, he’s quite the romantic at heart and a caring Dad to boot. “I would describe Adrian as a fun and protective father. If given the chance, he would make an excellent house husband!” the 35-year-old management consultant tells The Weekly.
The pair welcomed their firstborn Zachary, whom they have affectionately nicknamed “Ploop Ploop”, in July this year. Ang also shared the delivery process with viewers on his Instagram page, showing the unfiltered reality and emotions of giving birth.
This came after a devastating miscarriage in 2020, when their doctor found no heartbeat nine weeks into the pregnancy during a routine scan. “After the episode two years ago, it took me a while to really let go of the worry and fear of a similar incident happening again, and to finally embrace the joy of my wife’s pregnancy,” Ang shares.
“Because of our miscarriage history, I was mostly cautiously optimistic throughout the pregnancy,” Goh recalls.
In an exclusive interview with The Weekly, the couple opens up about the challenges as first-time parents, divvying parenting duties, their parenting philosophies, and more.
