Michele Reis gives her fans running updates on her latest role - as mother

Congratulations to actress and beauty queen Michele Reis and her tycoon hubby Julian Hui Chun-hang. The couple welcomed their first baby, Jayden Max Hui, on Tuesday.

News travelled fast as the new parents released a photo of their son on a public relations firm's account on weibo (the Chinese equivalent of Twitter).

It's not surprising that Reis chose to spread the news via the microblogging service - she's quite a weibo addict. The day before she went into labour, she was still updating her account, saying: 'Everyone is trying to be a better person. Change is always good.'

Soon after she gave birth, Reis thanked fans for their support and soon afterwards gushed with excitement.

'It's a moving moment. I thank God for giving me a new role in life and the chance to be a mother. It's a fresh new experience for me and I shall try very hard to be a great mother.'

In the picture released to the public (above), Jayden is sound asleep in his crib while Ayden, Reis' nephew, is held up by his nanny to greet his new cousin.

To celebrate, the couple prepared chocolates wrapped in cigar-shaped packages from Mandarin Oriental's cake shop for friends and media.
