3 Oct – Socialite and host Divine Lee has recently given birth to her second child.

As reported on Rappler, the famed blogger shared the good news on Instagram with a photo of her newborn daughter, writing, "Head full of hair! Meet Blanca Dietrich Lee Go, our little firework!"

In another post on an Instagram account dedicated to her daughter, Lee revealed that she chose the name Blanca to symbolise purity and calm, while Dietrich is an ancient German name that means ruler of people.

Using the example of actress Marlene Dietrich, she wrote, "Marlene Dietrich is a known a feminist who excelled in film. But what people don't know is that she broke boundaries not just in film. She was one of the significant individuals who helped during the war. She was also the first woman who openly wore trousers, breaking boundaries set for females. She was one of the first women to break the taboo of wearing a suit on camera and once, was almost arrested for wearing it in public."

She stated that her daughter is given such a name to remind her that she has "no need to fit in any glass slippers, no glass ceilings that she can't break and no boundaries she can't surpass."

Lee and husband Blake Go already have a son, Baz, born in 2018.
