Comedian (and MC) Kang Ho Dong and wife Lee Hyo Jin are now parents to a healthy baby boy.

On the afternoon of March 13, Lee gave birth naturally at a hospital in Gangnam, Seoul to a son weighing 3.3 kilograms. Both mother and son are in healthy condition.

Kang Ho Dong was not present for the birth. He was in Jeolla-do, filming with the cast and crew of Two Days and One Night (1N2D / 1박2일). He was overjoyed to hear the news, as he had greatly anticipated a son.

The couple has been married since November 2006. Preceding the birth, they had been calling the baby Baekdoosan (Mount Baekdoo) because the baby was conceived following 1N2D’s trip to the mountain.
