Ah, babies, they're so cute (even cuter when they come from K-pop stars). Here's 10 current, and former, K-pop Idols who are parents:
1. Kahi (After School)
The former After School leader got married to entrepreneur Yang Jun-mu in early 2016. Kahi announced that they would be expecting their first child in May 2016 and in October she gave birth to a baby boy.
2. Sunye (Wonder Girls)
Sunye was the first ever Wonder Girl to be revealed to the public in 2006. She met her Korean-Canadian husband James Park during a missionary trip in Haiti. They tied the knot in early 2013. Sunye gave birth to her first daughter, Eun-yoo (Hailey) in October 2013 and to her second daughter Ha-jin (Elisha) in April 2016.
3. Dongho (U-KISS)
Dongho was one of the original members of boy group U-KISS until he decided to leave the group and ultimately the entertainment industry in 2013. He got married two years later in 2015, at 21, to his non-celebrity wife who is one year older. During the same year he became a father to a baby boy named Asher, who he frequently uploads pictures of on his personal Facebook.
4. Eli (U-KISS)
Eli shocked everyone, including his fellow members, when he announced that he'd been married for over a year, since June 2014. He married model Ji Yeon-soo, who is 11 years his junior, and became a father to son Michael Min-soo Kim in 2016.
5. Soyul (Crayon Pop)
Another huge surprise that came from nowhere was that Soyul and former H.O.T member Moon Hee Jun were getting married. Shortly after the marriage Soyul had their first child. The couple announced she was pregnant the week before, there are no current images of their baby released but here’s hoping they show off their bundle of joy soon.
6. Shoo (S.E.S)
Shoo is a member of female trio group S.E.S who were extremely popular from 1997-2002. She married her basketball husband Im Hyo-sung in 2010. The couple welcomed their first son Im Yoo that same year and in 2013 they welcomed twin daughters, Im Ra-yool and Im Rae-hee into the world. They've become popular from variety show appearances on Oh! My Baby and The Return of Superman.
7. Ko Ji-yong (SECHSKIES)
Ko Ji-yong was a former member of first generation YG Entertainment group SECHSKIES from 1997-2000. In 2013 he got married to Heo Yang-im, a professor of family medicine and a Doctor. They welcomed their first son Ko Seung-jae a year later, in 2014, who also appeared on popular show The Return of Superman.
8. Eugene (S.E.S)
Eugene met her husband Ki Tae-young while working on the drama Creating Destiny together. The couple tied the knot in 2011 and had their first child Ro-hee in 2015. Ro-hee joined Ko Seung-jae on The Return of Superman and the two went on play dates, which drew attention because they were both children of first generation idols, SECHSKIES and S.E.S.
9. Joon Park (g.o.d)
Joon Park is part of g.o.d, who were one of the most popular idol groups in the early 2000s. Park’s label announced that he'd be getting married to his flight attendant girlfriend in 2015. Two years after they welcomed their first daughter into the family.
Rain married long-time girlfriend Kim Tae-hee in 2017. The couple had been dating five years prior. Tae-hee’s agency announced that she was pregnant. Their baby daughter was born in October 2017. There are no official photos of the child because Rain wants to keep it a private.
