Actress Kim Tae Hee has set aside her acting career and will focus on raising her first baby with husband and singer Rain.
This was announced from the actress' side after she gave birth to a daughter. Rain revealed the good news on Instagram on October 25, where he wrote, "Thank you... She's a beautiful princess~ We'll raise her to be a child that helps the world. #Blessed."
For now, Kim Tae Hee's career will take a backseat as she takes on her new role as a mother of her newborn.
"Kim Tae Hee has healthily delivered her baby. Currently, only the family members have gathered in celebration. Kim Tae Hee will focus only on her baby for a while. Specific promotional activities have not been planned. Rain will be busy with his comeback and 'The Unit', however, he's already glued next to his daughter," the actress' representative stated.
The public learned about the star couple's relationship in 2013. They got married in a simple ceremony last January in Seoul and went to Bali, Indonesia for their honeymoon.
Kim Tae Hee was revealed to be 15 weeks pregnant in May 2017 and was expected to give birth in late October or early November.
Korean media reported that Kim Tae Hee and Rain decided to keep the umbilical cord blood of their baby after she gave birth at M Obstetrics and Gynecology center in Cheongdam-dong, Seoul.
As per reports, the first thing that the couple did was to have their daughter's cord blood stored at a cord blood bank for future use.
According to the Baby Center, "cord blood is the blood in your baby's umbilical cord. It contains stem cells that can grow into blood vessels, organs, and tissues. Cord blood stem cells are the subject of FDA-regulated clinical trials exploring their suitability for helping those with autism, brain injury, and other conditions. These specialized cells are already used to treat dozens of diseases."
It added that cord blood stem cells can be used to treat different diseases including leukemia, aplastic anemia and Hodgkin's disease.
