Daily Life of a Villain’s Mother


Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

After transmigrating into a novel, Ye Fan became the villain’s mother.

After falling into a scheme, she gave birth to the villain, Film Emperor He Han’s son, and the latter had no knowledge of it.

Ye Fan is a stand-in for a famous young actress, and the person she had to film an intimate scene with actually happened to be that Film Emperor.

The original Ye Fan abandoned the villain son, and when the matter was revealed, she was drowned completely in hate by the netizens.

Fortunately, the villain son had yet to grow up, and the Film Emperor knew nothing about it all. All Ye Fan needed to do was raise her child with the mentality of a buddha.

On the film debut right after an award ceremony, the matter of Ye Fan’s illegitimate child was exposed, shocking the entire net.

It was unexpected.

The prince of silver screen He Han who had always kept a clean and self-conscious image had a press conference that day.

“There is something I’ve been hiding from everyone. I have a three-year-old child.”

Article 2

The little one tailing behind Ye Fan saw the Film Emperor on TV.

In a tender voice, he said, “Mama, mama, why does that man look so much like me?”

Ye Fan glanced at the screen and looked away again.

She held her dear baby’s face and said, “You must have seen it wrong, my son.”

Film Emperor: Hehe.

Idk why people say the baby is gross but for me, Dudu is totally adorable. They say he acts like a grown up? But he does not. Idk maybe its the translation but he has lots of baby talk and he's super cute too - the clingy kind of cute. He's more obedient than normal kids though but thats definitely a good thing. Anyway, this is a good read if you want to pass time.

MTL is easy to understand.

SISSSSS! This novel is so cute and heart-warming... It straight up gave me baby-fever!!

I absolutely love the fluffy interactions between the MC and her baby 😍 the plot, although predictable, is still realistic and not filled with all that overly dramatic, dog-blood drama BS that usually happens....

Although some may say it's boring, I feel the way the MC deals with her sudden circumstances (schemes by her haters) using practical methods, and the fact that she readily adapts and gradually develops a sense of belonging with her new identity, brings real... more>> depth to her character.


MC transmigrates into a novel and became a single mother (cannon fodder) of the novel's villain. Her baby-daddy is famous/rich and not in the picture. Of course she doesn't know the guy, has no feelings for him, and remembers that the original owner got pregnant through despicable means, so it's only natural the current her doesn't seek him out.

The person she falls in love with at first sight, is the original body owner's son, three year-old baby Dudu. In her previous life she was an orphan who lived alone, so now she has a son who she recognises as her "most important person" (a common theme throughout the novel), she works hard to support their household and teach her child to be a good person, steering him away from a future of being a villain.

Yes, there is a male lead for her current life's story (the baby-daddy) but their development is kinda meh as most of the time she's indifferent to his actions (dude falls first and the poor thing falls hard hahaha)... However, you should know that this story focuses more on the MC developing her career and adapting to newfound motherhood, so her son takes precedence over the ML.


The translation for this novel is absolutely superb👌 A light read filled with sweetness, this novel I definitely recommend.

Thank you Author-sama and Translator-senpai 😊 <<less

May be I am too jaded by all the show-biz novels I have read that this story doesn't seem to offer anything unique. FL, having a music background, can play piano, violin and many other instruments - OK, no problem! But having no acting background, but still acting so well that she barely NGs and gathers tons of praises and gets to endorse famous brands as a newbie! - a bit too much!!!

ML seems to be around the FL ALL THE TIME!!! For a super star, he surely has a... more>> lot of time, to hover around FL in the agency, on the sets, during shooting etc... And time to hover around the kid - in market, in amusement park, at home! One minute he's with FL, another with the child, probably got the teleportation skill!

The child is way too precocious!! (other 2-3yr old I have interacted with seem a lot s*upider than this little fellow...) His behavior seems too forced, too mature and not cute at all... Oh well, seems like a common theme in CN...

The netizens have negative IQ and are too quick to anger and throw stones at people, barely any sane people around... And the chapters are full of comments like these! <<less

I don't make reviews, since most works I've read even when mtl-ed already have reviews on their respective NU page.

But I'll take a moment to say I did enjoy this novel. Reading about children and heartwarming stuff is enjoyable for me, since life can get pretty hard on us sometimes.

I admit I was losing interest by the 100-ish chapters. Because it was predictable and I guess between skimming through or reading spoilers, I'd choose the latter. But this novel is only recently translated, thus I can't read the ending. :'... more>> (Haha. So I practically breezed through the remaining 40-50 chapters

Like I said, there's nothing surprising about the story. I just came for the baby bun. Lol. The plot contained the usual cliche elements of a childcare CN. But the child scenes are enjoyable to read even though you see it coming. XD

Here are some spoilers and my thoughts:

The not-so-impressive:


The premise is about this child borne out of a one-night stand from orig!MC who was about to be raped thankfully got to a wrong room where our coincidentally drugged ML was in. Honestly, this matter wasn't even explored into detail, as if these series of events are made to proceed the plot.

Even the thing about being in love with each other without being able to say it or even meet in person until both died at different periods before transmigration is kinda like plot device just so both of them can fall in love with each other within the chapter constraints. It's kinda a way to say they already love each other before the story even started, so you can't say how they fell is "unrealistic".

With the way the MC is written (where she's not looking for a relationship), I guess the author needed something so the love can start.

And that baby switch between FL and MC? I don't even know what to say. Haha. Simply put, it feels like the author just dumped several tropes into one novel and resolved it one by one. Typing this now, it shows how lacking it is. XD But honestly, I guess it's better than most in how it handled itself, but it still wasn't that memorable save for a few parts.


In a single sentence, I think the novel is too... Smooth sailing. With the use of common tropes and solving them so easily using the tried and tested ways from other novels, the story just simply lacked tension even with all the "conflicts" it provided.

The good:


The thing I love about this novel though is Dudu! He actually behaves like a kid. I mean, he's still sensible most of the time but it's within the realm of reality. I especially liked the conversation between Dudu and his dad when he cried about why he doesn't have a dad, and if he doesn't want him anymore so he left. And he couldn't understand when the MC explained "he went far away". I mtl-ed it, but it was a nice touch that Dudu didn't affiliate her words with "death", which I think MC wanted to insinuate, rather just thought his dad didn't like him so he never "visits" him. I like that scene where he saw families and how there's a dad putting his kid up his shoulders, and he wondered why he never saw his dad. When Dudu told ML, which is his actual father, "I wish you're Dudu's dad. Why can't you be my daddy?"

I felt that. :' (


With all the negatives, it was still a good lighthearted read. As I said, it's predictable, but you can give it a try and read. If it's a bit too long-winded, you can always skip ahead or read spoilers on the forum. ^_^ Maybe I could type in some spoilers to anyone who's interested. Hahaha. Probably not. XD

I only wished it created more emotional conflict, tension and also had the story more compact. It just.. Needs something more.

Readers who like this might also enjoy Transmigration: Raising the Child of the Male Lead Boss. That one though, created humor and well, funny sexual jokes ladies would laugh out loud for (even until this date, I haven't forgotten her gift to hubby while they were filming a variety show showing their daily life. To anyone who read it, I'm looking at you! *wink**wink*). Both are childcare novels with an entertainment setting so I'm sure you'll enjoy both. But yes, that novel had humor that this one lacks, but I enjoyed interactions with Dudu juuust a little more than Ruirui. Hahaha.

Anyway, my final rating for this is 3.5. :) But 70% of the novels I read are either dropped or on hold, so that remaining 30% had something to make me read it to its entirety, even if, like this one, I scanned past the remaining chapters. <<less

the only thing that kept me reading was the cute little baby! Unlike most novel where the kid has a high IQ and is unrealistically mature we have a little cute bun that stays true to his age!

However one star off cause I wish the author had went more into detail with MC's relationship with her real family. I feel that A LOT of things were kinda skimmed through like MC and ML's dad, could had wrote more about them and let them have more appearance in the novel.

Starts good but gets progressively more boring. I normally enjoy these type of light stories with a bit of drama, face slapping, and a cute bun to keep things light but... the scenes with the bun start to overtake the story. Not unusual to go a couple chapters of nothing but the bun broken up with only a few paragraphs of plot. Honestly I've started skimming the parts with the bun because they feel like filler and they waterdown the actual plot. The bun also is a little too idealistic,... more>> doesn't feel like a real child.

I agree with a lot of Stillgryffinpuff points but it just makes for easy light read when you don't want to think to hard. I will keep reading because I'm a sucker for these type of light dramas but I'll continue to skim the bun parts. <<less

It looked interesting so I mtl'd and tried to get into it but I couldnt finish it. Too much filler for me and unnecessary plot. I am beginning to tire of all the extra that comes with anything set in the entertainment industry. Its an ok read but not for me.

It's not bland, but not too surprising either. Follow the same formula like every other transmigrated into entertainment world story. A kind of novel which you don't need to think so hard, just read and enjoy what's written in it. It's kinda fast paced in my opinion. But I love the translator's works, that's one of the reasons I continue to read this.

Wanted to read more, so went to a MTL site and finished it.
All in all, typical transmigration romance novel about a strong and determined woman who finds out she has an instant child.

strong points:

1) unexpected character info regarding ML ... more>>

turns out he was a daddy long legs in their original world before he died and came into this one too


2) romance without the steam. This one is rather pure and the sexiness is more back burner, which I liked because it fit with the characters.

3) the bun, I love smart and obedient buns. Their too cute for word

weak points:

1) final confrontation with rival is weak.

2) no real character development

3) gets kinda boring and rushed after C110, like the writer just wants to get this over with.

Final Verdict:

Great light reading, fun and cute, but follows the format a bit too closely. <<less

I really love this novel~~~

Finished reading it in two days. I really enjoyed every moments of little bun with his mother.

Dudu is such a sweet child... you cant help but falling in love with their family moments.

The MC here does not have golden finger or anything... it is pure of her hard work, luck and her previous life's experience.

ML is a devoted husband and dad... he really treasures both mother and child.

Please give it a try if you enjoy novel with cute baby!

The story is good. There are some obvious plot holes and questions never answered, but they aren’t the focus of the novel. It’s a nice fluffy read about hardworking characters.

I didn’t understand why this needed to be a transmigration story until much later. I think it would have worked okay as an amnesia or separated childhood friends or one-night stand plot instead. The way it went down wasn’t bad, but I don’t think it was fully explored making the attempt at a deep transmigration story a little wasted or even... more>> unnecessary.

Worth a read if you like fluff and decent character development!!

Things I would have liked to learn or see:


Why was the second world a novel? Who read it? Why did Ye Fan have knowledge of it. Did the other Transmigrator also have memories? Implications seem to indicate not, so was their method different? If so, why? Was the first world also a novel?
Why did He Han never meet Ye Fan in their first life and stick to the secret admirer route? I feel like there is more to this story.

How the second Ye Fan actually did get pregnant with Dudu by He Han (the story only really talked about the cover story of ex-boyfriend for the media) ? The description made me think that she had gotten pregnant during filming of an intimate scene, but the first intimate scene the two had was when the child was already 2 or 3 years old. The ‘scheme’ is never mentioned in detail and there is no obvious person who instigated it. This would have been a good opportunity to develop a villain who hates He Han.

Did Ye Li do well overseas?

Why did Ye Fan never attempt to make a statement to protect Ye Li from the gossip?

• Do the main character’s competent assistants not have lives?

Any other relatives for some of the side characters or even main characters. Everyone seems to have a neatly pruned family tree.

Dudu older or as a villain

More development of the friendly characters. Ie What were Chang Su’s ‘vicissitudes?’ Where did Qi Shu (?) go?

Why does everyone work so hard? Dudu and the original Ye Fan of the second world have backgrounds. None of the rest, including two who worked to their deaths (dead), have obvious motivation to do so.

I don't really understand the original backstory or need for a transmigration??

Also I find her baby gross, idk why. It feels like a whole grown woman talking in third person even though it's a 2 year old lmfao.

This story is very cute, full of fluff to pair with the drama, and there is a clear progression in the feelings between the two leads. When you learn their pasts, the fact they're together makes sense and I was genuinely really happy for them. When two icebergs collide, it will feel hotter than fire~
... more>>

I nearly cried a few times reading this, not gonna lie, but this is not a sad story by any means. Just some of the circumstances make me have the feels. Everything was tied up pretty nicely though, the villains get their due. Then, those villains are thrown away because in reality who would want to spend all their time dwelling on evildoers? The theme of this story is moving on with confidence after all.

Also, the kid here isn't a tacked on genius "little adult" character but an actual child and acts like one (OML WHATTTT, shocker I know). Their kid is an integral part of their relationship and has his own personality that isn't obnoxious but comes off as cute (unlike the kid in The Villain's Mother who gave me the cringe). Will admit I was a little uncomfortable with how OK they were with fans approaching him, but that may just be me.

I know the title talks about how she's the villain's mother, but really there isn't much villainy here on the part of herself or the child. It's briefly explained the circumstances that led to the child growing into a wayward son, but the story then focuses more on the backstory of our girl and her man instead of delving into the future that would have been without them there. <<less

I like this story it's a lot less dramatic and exaggerated than most Chinese novels in the same genre. It takes a more realistic approach than all that extreme bit*h slapping revenge theme that is so popular in transmigration stories. The pace isn't so slow that you don't care about the story or characters anymore after a while. Kitty also does a good job with the translation. 🙂🙂🙂

I love this novel. It's a bit heavy on the drama between MC and ML, but most of the time they're pretty calm. The baby villain is a thoroughly good baby in the novel, though I would really love if there's a side chapter about the supposed villain going back to time and seeing himself having a happy family. But the ending of the novel is fine for me. At least there's no cliche of MC getting pregnant and giving birth to a girl in this novel. Both MC and... more>> ML agreed to only have one child which is the baby villain and I think it's good. Some words of precautions tho, prepare your tissues cuz some plots are pretty teary. <<less

This novel started very well but by this point I just feel it has been too dragged out. The child is not only FL you do not get preggo by yourself lady! I know she wants what is best for the child but when the kid himself is so in love with his 'uncle' and wants to see him every day do you not stop for a second and think? A father has a right to know especially when the father is caring and understanding. So what is the point... more>> in dragging this secret for so long? Protectiveness? Yes, of course, but mostly it is FL insecurities and selfishness too. She admits it herself it was only her and the baby and she does not want the father to steal her baby. The key for here is father! How can you think like that? At the beginning yes everyone needs time to adjust but my god how long will it drag on?

I might go back and finish this novel at some point later but I just ca't make myself red further any longer. <<less

Sigh, I know it's not really good to make a review before completing the read but this book kinda made me exhausted.

Really, cold MC and cold ML... Maybe it's a need to make a slow progress on their relationship, but I find it somehow rather bland. Or maybe because too many filler made me fed up idk. It doesn't even get halfway but I'm already bored.

Anyway, I didn't plan to finish it anytime soon. But if I have other opionion I may edit this review.
