Daphne Paelinck, known for her role as Christine in ‘Thuis’, gave birth to a girl Mae last week. “Thursday, June 24 at 10.10 am, you and only you decided the time was right,” the actress wrote on Instagram.
“You were born healthy and well at 30 weeks. You surprised us all. So small and already so strong. Life has something special in store for you. Welcome dear Mae.”
The actress’s child, who was born after just seven months, appears to be healthy and well. It is now strengthening in the incubator of the Antwerp Middelheim hospital. For Paelinck, who will soon be 33, Mae is her second daughter, after Allie (almost 2).
Extra remarkable is the storyline that the Antwerp actress was assigned last season in ‘Thuis’. She was initially pregnant with twins, after which one child did not make it. Not an easy role for the actress and (future) mom. Daphne Paelinck forms a couple with Randall Van Duytekom, who recently proposed to her. A question that she answered with a resounding yes. The birth of a healthy baby increases family happiness even more.
