After drawing a lot of mixed attention from fans due to his sudden announcement regarding his then-girlfriend’s sudden pregnancy in January of 2020 as well as his hasty decision to get married around the same time, fans of EXO’s Chen have grown used to the idea of seeing him as a husband and father. Chen had married his then-girlfriend in a secret ceremony soon after he broke the news of their pregnancy and fans soon accepted his changed status as a married man and responded warmly when his first child was born.
The vocalist from the K-pop group EXO has more positive news to share with fans as it was reported on November 16 that Chen is soon going to welcome his second child. Though the exact date of the birth of their second child is unknown, fans wished Chen’s wife the best of health while being away from the idol during this time as he is currently enlisted for his mandatory military service. Chen enlisted in the military soon after the birth of his daughter. This made fans worry for his wife who must have been exhausted nursing and looking after a young child all alone without Chen’s support.

After his small wedding back in January of 2020 and the arrival of his first child, a baby girl on April 29, 2020, Chen spent only around six months or less with his daughter before inevitably enlisting into the military on October 26 last year. With a year completed out of his 18-month long military service, Chen will return back home only during holidays before his official discharge in April of 2022.
It is suspected that his new child will be born before his military discharge but fans are hopeful that he gets to be on a vacation during the birth of his second child. Now that only 162 days out of Chen’s complete military service is remaining, fans were initially expecting him to return on April 27, 2022, two days ahead of his daughter’s second birthday. If Chen decides to take more vacation days than he has already been allotted, it is expected that his date of discharge will be postponed too.
Fans started congratulating Chen (Kim Jongdae) for the positive news saying, “Jongdae out there living his best life! As he should!! CONGRATS KING!!” Another fan said, “CONGRATULATIONS CHEN, WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH.” Another fan announced, “SO EXO CHEN’S WIFE IS PREGNANT AGAIN.” One fan joked saying there are more babies for EXO members to play with saying, “Chen’s a dad again? Means EXO is going to have more babies to play with. it’s a win-win.”
One more fan posted an update, “SM Entertainment confirms the news that EXO Chen’s wife is pregnant with second child. Congratulations.” Another fan said, “I know it’s weird but I dreamt about meeting his family last night. His wife was pregnant in my dream. LOL. Congratulations Jong Dae Ah.” One fan joked, “EXO-Ls, don’t be lazy to stream their music and Chen’s albums. We have two babies to feed.”
