Actors Jang Dong-gun and Ko So-young became the latest couple to join the baby league on Monday.
The star pairing gave birth to a son at 4 a.m. at a hospital in Gangnam, according to Jang’s managing agency.
``The baby weighs 3.23 kilograms and both the mother and child are in good health,’’ they said. ``Jang Dong-gun and his family were present at the hospital for the birth.’’
``I’m so thankful and happy that both my wife and child are healthy,’’ Jang said in a press release. ``I offer my sincerest thanks to those who sent their best wishes.’’
Jang and Ko, both 38-years-old, were married at the Shilla Hotel in May when the actress was four-months pregnant. The discreet couple announced in November 2009 that they had been dating for two years. The two met on the set of the 1998 melodrama ``Love Wind, Love Song.’’
Jang will make his Hollywood debut this December as the leading man in ``The Warrior’s Way.’’
