North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has a baby daughter.This was revealed by retired NBA star Dennis Rodman who visited the leader’s home last week.
Mr Rodman told The Guardian he held the baby, Ju-ae, and spoke with Mr Kim’s wife, Ri Sol-ju.
Kim’s wife Ri Sol had appeared to be pregnant in pictures issued last year by North Korea’s state news agency, although no confirmation was available. She then disappeared from public view, returning last October.
It is believed she gave birth during that long spell of disappearance.
The baby daughter seemingly guarantees the future of a dynasty that has ruled the isolated and impoverished state for three generations.
The Kim dynasty has ruled North Korea for three generations. Kim Jong Un follows his father, Kim Jong Il, and grandfather, Kim Il Sung.
