North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has 'secret' daughter

Zee Media Bureau

Pyongyang: In a startling report about one of the world’s most secretive person, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un fathered a baby girl in 2010 with an unknown woman.

Notably, Kim is believed to have married Ri Sol-ju in 2009. However, she only started to appear alongside the North Korean leader in July 2012. It was in the same year Ri is believed to have given birth to the couple's first child.

"Ri Sol-ju performed on stage in 2010 as a member of the Unhasu Orchestra, when Kim Jong-un became the father of his first child," the Chosun Ilbo newspaper quoted a diplomatic source in Beijing as saying.

"In North Korea, it is unthinkable for a pregnant first lady to perform on stage."

According to the report, Kim and Ri have a daughter. If true, Kim now has two daughters, but with different women.

The daily further quoted the diplomatic source as saying: "North Korea’s recent imports of luxury European baby products included goods for both baby boys and girls…This suggests that Kim Jong-un and Kim Jong-chol (Kim Jong-un’s older brother) had a baby girl and boy at about the same time."
