In an Instagram post published yesterday (Mar 3), the Taiwanese singer-actress shared a touching birthday card she got from her stepdaughters Shasha and Clara, while she reflected on her journey as a mother. Vivian, who will turn 45 later this month, moved to Singapore after marrying Singapore-based businessman Sean Lee in 2014.
The couple has a four-year-old son Dalton, and she’s also mother to two daughters from Sean’s previous marriage.

檢查完才知道前陣子的火燒心&喉嚨不適，原來是胃食道逆流造成的，婚後6年來，第一次放下所有，把心靜下來，好好和自己相處、和自己的身體對話，才察覺，多年來生活節奏已經快到吃飯用吞的、洗澡用趕的卻不自知，為了提神咖啡天天喝2杯，常熬夜只因想做完未完成的事，從婚後離開原生家庭進入另一個新家庭、要適應新加坡這個新環境、當時沒生過孩子的我，一路學習怎麼當好一個後媽，接著從懷孕過程的臥床五個月Dalton出生後，新手媽媽更不敢鬆懈，但也不想放棄自己熱愛的表演事業，每個月多地飛行，努力想把每一個角色都做好，一刻不得閒，而這些學習和挑戰，雖然令我感到很幸福，但在長時間的緊張壓迫、休息不夠、睡眠不足下，除了焦慮、身體也在抗議了⋯兩星期前，我決定要更疼愛自己，非必要不熬夜、早睡早起、吃飯細嚼慢嚥、心情平和、咖啡少喝點⋯等。我發現事情一樣做的完、身體也好了😊 心情更好！同時我很感恩老天給我2個貼心的寶貝女兒、雖然V媽很多地方做的不盡完美，謝謝妳們的理解、體諒和愛，我也愛妳們❤️(女兒大了，開始懂事也會關心我的健康，換她們唸我了🤣) #女兒的手寫卡片令我很感動 #胃食道逆流後的重生 #鋼鐵V逆流而上 #農曆生日
In the post, Vivian called the girls her daughters, and thanked them for their understanding, patience, and love. On the birthday card, Shasha expressed her gratitude for having Vivian in her life, for being supportive, positive, resilient, and for teaching her how to be a better person.
Shasha wrote: “I admire your attitude towards life and I want to learn to be a better person and improve myself. I know things have not been easy for you several times, but even so, you persevere to the end! And that is one of the many admirable things about you. Lastly, thanks for being such a cool mum.”
Her sister Clara was grateful for the time spent with Vivian and how she always looks out for the family. Clara even gave a cheeky nod to Vivian teaching her how to play mahjong and told her to drink less coffee.
“Every time I talk to my friends about my parents, I’ll say you’re super cool, and I’m very proud of having you as my mother. You’re not only like a mother, but also like my best friend. That’s why I always feel so comfortable around you. I know I say this all the time but I’ll always be here to support you, whether it’s at home or when you are out working. I’ll always be here to help whenever you need any help,” Clara wrote.
The photo was shared with a caption that detailed Vivian’s mysterious heart burn and discomfort in her throat that she experienced recently. Vivian explained that it was caused by acid reflux, and the diagnosis marks the first time she’s paused to take stock of her physical health in the six years she’s been married. It made her realise that she has been moving through life at a breakneck pace.
She wrote: “For the past few years, my life has been at a pace where I gobble down my food, I rush through my showers, I drink two cups of coffee every day to stay alert, and I stay up late to finish the tasks I want to complete.”
Vivian revealed that since she had Dalton, she’s never dared to have a lax attitude towards her motherly duties as she’s a new mum. However, she didn’t want to give up her career as a performer either so she jets around every month and juggles her roles.
But, her hectic lifestyle and lack of rest has since taken a toll on her health, and she’s decided to focus on her personal wellness.
Vivian said: “I’ve decided to love myself more. I won’t stay up late if I don’t have to, I’ll sleep early and wake up early. I’ll eat slowly, feel at peace, and drink less coffee.”
