Lee Hwi-jae to become a father


Lee Hwi-jae

Comedian and TV personality Lee Hwi-jae is set to become a dad for the first time at 41.

According to Star News, the “Three Wheels” host told staff and crew at a recording on Thursday that his wife is pregnant.

“He was stoked and expressed his joy and love toward his wife,” said an eyewitness from the MBC studio in Ilsan, Gyeonggi.

The baby news comes two years into his marriage to Moon Jung-won, who is eight years younger.

The two dated for a year before tying the knot in December 2010.

Last time Lee made headlines was for a different and comical reason.

Back in June on an episode of “Diamond Girl,” Lee confessed that he got eyebrow tattoos in order to achieve a more defined look.

“For a long time I was bothered by how light my eyebrows looked on screen. So with encouragement from my colleague, I got my eyebrows tattooed just 24 hours ago,” he said on the June 28 episode on QTV.
