Actress Choi Ji Woo has become a mother at the age of 45. 

Ji Woo gave birth to a baby girl in a Seoul hospital on May 16. Both mother and daughter are reportedly in good health and doing well.

The actress tied the knot with her non-celebrity boyfriend in 2018, and announced her pregnancy in December of last year.

She also made a surprise guest appearance on tvN’s Crash Landing on You while she was pregnant with her daughter. 

Ji Woo even shared her excitement about giving birth via a fan site on the 6th.

“I’m finally two weeks out from my due date. I even did a simple DIY maternity shoot in front of my house,” the actress wrote. “As I’m getting ready to give birth after getting pregnant at a later age and feeling on edge because of the coronavirus, I’m suddenly struck by a sense of admiration for mothers in Korea.”

She continued, “I hope I can help mothers-to-be, who are struggling to prepare for labor, feel encouraged. As I owe all of this happiness to my fans, I promise to raise a happy family with gratitude in my heart.”
