"He came quietly, and left quietly. Gina and I are deeply saddened by the loss, especially Gina as a mother."

Lee Teng, 37, announced the news on Instagram in the wee hours of today (July 28).
Posting a black and white photo of what looks to be his and Lin’s hand on her baby bump, he wrote in Chinese and also English: “First, I apologise to everyone. It’s regretful that Xiao Dou Ya won’t be able to meet everyone.
“He came quietly, and left quietly. Gina and I are deeply saddened by the loss, especially Gina as a mother.
“Pardon us if we are not able to reply to any messages at the moment. Please give us some time and space to overcome this plight. In the meantime, stay safe and take care.”
