Vivian Hsu's Son's 'Secret Wish' For 5th Birthday Is So Pure It Reminds Us to Be Grateful
"Mummy, I'm not sure why but I feel a little teary... Thank you mummy and daddy for the Nezha-themed present and cake, I am very happy today, and I really like it like this."
It hasn’t been long since Taiwanese actress Vivian Hsu and her 5-year-old son Dalton, reunited with her Singapore-based businessman husband, Sean Lee, and her stepdaughters.
Just last July, the 45-year-old star flew back to Singapore from Taiwan with Dalton after 5 months of being forced to be physically apart from her Indonesia-born husband due to the pandemic.
The mother-son duo completed their two-week quarantine safely on 9 August, which was just in time to celebrate Dalton’s birthday on 13 August.
Taking to holding a Nezha-themed party at home, Vivian shared in an Instagram post (14 Aug) a series of photographs they had taken together.

昨天五歲了！睡覺前他告訴我：「媽咪，我不知道為什麼，我有一點想哭…謝謝爸鼻媽咪送我的哪吒禮物還有蛋糕，我今天真的好開心，然後我很喜歡這樣」我告訴他，也可以用“好感動”來形容😊 他還在我耳邊偷偷告訴我：「媽咪我可以告訴妳今天我在心裏許的第三個願望是什麼嗎？就是我希望大家過自己生日的時候，也可以像我今天一樣快樂」(藏不住秘密忍不住一定要說出來🤣)但娘我聽了好欣慰，沒想到他的第三個願望竟然不是給自己、而是留給了身邊的人❤️真是大方有愛的孩子👍 兒，娘希望你平安健康長大，長大後除了做一個快樂的好人，也要繼續保持有一顆懂得感恩和飲水思源的心 🙏🏻 生日快樂娘的吒兒～ I love u ❤️ 當他發現哪吒也姓李之後，更愛哪吒了 🤣(擔心他一個人角色扮演會害羞，娘放兩個貓耳朵在自己頭上陪他💪) #Dalton五歲了 #2020/8/13 #李哪吒 #Nezha
The 5-year-old was immaculately dressed from head to toe in the NeZha-inspired outfit as he posed with the iconic fire-tipped spear.
According to Hsu, the set-up was inspired by Dalton’s obsession with a teenage protection deity, Nezha, in Chinese folk religion. And apparently, his love for NeZha grew after realising that both of them shared the same surname ‘Lee’, she said.
The celebration that was filled with smiles, was also made complete with a customised NeZha-themed cake.
According to Hsu’s post, Dalton expressed his gratitude towards his parents for the party on his birthday night.
Just before bedtime, he said: “Mummy, I’m not sure why but I feel a little teary… Thank you mummy and daddy for the Nezha-themed present and cake, I am very happy today, and I really like it like this.”
But for Hsu herself, the highlight of her son’s birthday was perhaps something intangible.
Unable to conceal his ‘secret wish’ from her any longer, Hsu recounted how Dalton whispered in her ear: “Mummy, can I tell you what the third birthday wish that I made in my heart was? I wished for everyone to be able to experience happiness like I did today when they celebrate their birthdays in the future.”
Hsu said that she felt gratified after hearing what her son told her.
She wrote: “I never thought that his third birthday wish would be dedicated to those around him. He’s such a loving boy.”
Ending off her post, Hsu dedicates her birthday wishes for Dalton: “Mummy hope you grow up safely and healthily. Apart from growing up to become a happy and good person, it is important to maintain a grateful heart.”
