Singapore billionaire Peter Lim is looking forward to having more grandchildren.

“My family loves children. My dad also really loves kids and has been telling me since I was 22 to have babies soon because, you know, my dad is quite old,” his 26-year-old daughter Kim shares in an interview with The Sunday Times.

Her businessman father, 65, is a former stockbroker-turned-private investor with dealings in various fields such as healthcare and sports. He also owns Spanish football club Valencia and, according to Forbes, has a net worth upwards of US$2.1 billion (S$2.8 billion).

Kim gave birth to her first baby – and Peter’s first grandchild – Kyden in July 2017.

“My father loves the baby so much and would offer to help take care of him. Our whole family spoils the baby, he’s our family’s joy,” says Kim in the interview. She and her younger brother, 24, are from Peter’s first marriage to Teo Geok Fong. He is now married to former actress Cherie Lim.

News of her son’s birth came as a surprise because Kim, who regularly posts photos of her lavish lifestyle on her Instagram account (@kimlimhl), had not shared anything about her pregnancy or tying the knot.

Word got out only when Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo  ew into Singapore to visit her at Thomson Medical Centre on July 21, three days after she delivered Kyden.
