Chi Wen’s short life has been bumpy. Ever since he could remember things, he was already living in the orphanage, growing up without a family. Later, he entered the entertainment industry and became a first generation film emperor. However, he finally ended up in ruin. In the end, Chi Wen jumped off the top floor of a building, but did not expect that he would get a chance to open his eyes again…

Back to his infancy, Chi Wen coldly looked at the woman who was laughing s*upidly in front of him. He waited, waited until the moment she finally abandoned him.

 Fu Yuanruo was transmigrated as the cannon fodder in the novel ‘First Generation Movie Queen.’ When she first transmigrated, it happened to be the plot point when the malicious cannon fodder tried to frame the female lead for the last time. After that, her evil deeds would be exposed. The whole netizens mocked, and her father angrily drove her out of the house. A former wealthy and pampered young miss fall into the mud and finally died after accidentally falling into the water…

Because of the high popularity of the original book, the author used the daughter of the original female and male lead as the protagonist for the second book. The villain who had been against the main couple of this sequel also met his just end and died tragically. After his death, the female lead let out some vague words that made readers speculated that this villain was the illegitimate son of the prequel’s cannon fodder.

After recalling the plot, Fu Yuanruo stared at the pregnancy report in her hand. She was torn: should she give birth or not?

Can I just say that I enjoy it when MC doesn’t go into the entertainment industry lol. This one decides to be a florist/botanist which was great, and I love how she was resolute when she decided to keep the baby.

Very good!

The little villain is very cute, and the whole novel you will exclaim how cute he is! We don't feel wierd seeing an old guy acting like a child because since he's a baby we could see his baby brain make him unable to really think clearly, he's basically a victim of the undeveloped neurons. So he stay cute until the end of the novel.

The MC is also a good white lotus! A very caring mom and she has a brain in her. She does everything for her child... more>> and do not fall willy nilly with the ML. She also calculate revenge clearly and do not entangle herself with the previous body enemies as long as the others don't bother her.

ML is the typical uber rich CEO but we can see his care for his son and son's mother. He basically resolve everything for the pair of mother and son including their enemies so if you don't like stories where ML solve everything this is not for you. And ML is not cruel in his revenge, he is lawful and not excessive.

The MTL is very easy to read. I do tend to skip some paragraphs in the later half of the story because it doesn't advance the story they are just copious dog food thrown around and bragging how rich ML is. But all in all a good read. <<less

I really enjoyed this story. The female lead, male lead and son are just so adorable together. It's not overly complicated which I liked. In addition it has a bit of a slice of life feel in that mother and son were equally apart of the story and actually did stuff together. Unlike a lot of stories where they mention a child but never have them really show up.

This novel got me crying badly when Wen Wen know the real reason why his mother left him in previous life. It was so heartbreaking T_T

I cried so bad but that part was my favorite. T_T

Oh and clarification, in the previous life Chi wen wasn't the son of Si yue (ML). This life MC who transmigrated at that time got away from the man her step sister pay to r*pe MC, then she met ML who coincidentally was drunk/drug? (Mtl is really confusing). So don't worry, MC and ML broke... more>> their virginity together when they had Wen Wen. Hehehe

Overall this novel was one of my favorite. <<less

I really liked this story. I usually avoid slow romance but this novel kinda played it out well enough for me to not want to drop the novel.

I liked the ML. He is domineering yet didn't force FL for anything. And his fights with his son were cute.

FL is likeable too, mature and accepts the identity of mother unlike other transmigrated mothers who stays in utter denial of being a mom.

The son's past life was quite a tragedy. He is really a cutie pie. Really happy that he got a... more>> second chance in life and a complete family to love him. <<less

It feels okay. Not like the other transmigrate into the book and become the mother of the tragic son. There's not a lot of romance, leaning more towards mother-child love, but the father does appear in almost every chapter. Not a lot of character development, at least not one written out in details.


... more>>

MC transmigrates to the night original was drugged and ran to her world's hometown to hide from the media. Chi Wen has memories since birth and is prejudice against his mother, always thinking sarcastically that he would leave him one day to live a better life despite how much love she showered him. Finally, he called her mother and decided to protect her when he learned that she had died in the original world, something MC slipped out in fright one day while taking the sick Chi Wen, now named Fu Wen, to the hospital.

In order to make milk money, MC joined a life-stream platform to grow flowers, and ML, Shi Yue, an emperor of the entertainment industry who can do anything but grow flowers, became her number one fan after giving her millions to get her to plant a seed for him.

Later, when Fu Wen was four, he met his father, who came to record a virality show and MC met the green tea step sister, Xuerou. Due to the last life, Fu Wen hates Xuerou and it's exposed that Xuerou is a stepdaughter, causing netizens to analyze and comment that where there is a stepmother, there is a stepfather, and Xuerou's smooth path began to become blocked.

Later, Xuerou was arrested for instigating a fan to try and kill Fu Wen and Fu father divorced after finding out the true face of the mother and daughter. However, Xuerou still came out due to pregnancy, but did not live a good life as Shi Yue made original ML's family bankrupt.

In the end, MC and Shi Yue married and have a daughter together. Fu father went to a nursing home and never saw MC again, as MC said that the person who can forgive him is no longer here. Fu Wen, now named Shi Wei, joined the entertainment company and met 2nd book's FL. He did nothing to her, but his fans and those around him guarded him against this white-lotus.


Fu father dreams of the original life.

Shi Wei returned to his life in the orphanage and tried to find his father to get back his pampered life, but found out that they are not related by blood and that mother is dead. Still, Shi Yue adopted him and Shi Wei became a big president strong enough to take down original CP's powers.

Original changed lives with MC and prayed everyday that MC can have someone to guard her against CP's halo.


Despite being reborn and having gone through all those dark days, Chi Wen decides to live as a child and became very childish, often needing to be coaxed, so it was understandable that if he were to return to the original trajectory, he would be unable to crop. <<less

It's pretty good. Though I think FL and ML got together a little too slow.

The part where WenWen got to knows the reason why he was left in the orphanage in his last life was really heartbreaking. Also when he dreamt of going back to his past life, it's just so awful.

But it's a heartwarming story nonetheless.

The first 30 chapters is so cute. The relationship between FL and her baby son is so cute and teary and amazing.

The rest is okay, the relationship between ML and FL are good. Almost plain.

But, I really hate revenge theme. So tired...... Face slapping etc, I don't feel peace at reading for this most heartwarming story..... turned into a dogblood relationship's story. I really can't enjoy the story anymore.....

I read it all in one go - good found-family type of story (characters you will love like tsundere uncle Guo and sweet Aunt Mei are still family with the MC and baby Wenwen and they don't lose presence at all!).

... more>>

mostly read the story for baby Wenwen having a happy childhood hahaha he's such a cute baby declaring "I'm an adult!" sometimes since he's also reborn, but like Wenwen you also forget he is one too when he's not talking maturely. Like there's a part he confronted a neighbor village boy who bullied his friend, but gets picked up because he's super cute and small haha or another time he forgot he's filming a show with the ML and ditches him to go have cake with his friends because he got so excited. He's smart too. Closer to the end, his paternal grandparents wanted to meet him and his mom but they understood the FL wasn't ready yet since she hasn't quite confirmed a relationship with the ML, so they disguised themselves around the property. Wenwen figures it out right away before his mom even notices lol it's nice how complex he is since he has his moments of insecurity that he's carrying from his past life (so he doesn't call Si Yue dad for a long time, and he even had this dark look when he was looking at Original FL's pregnant belly since they caused him so much misery in his acting career). Major spoiler but Wenwen final insecurity was losing Si Yue's love for not being a good boy (since again, his darkness seeps out when it came to his past life enemies) but he realizes Si Yue loves him like a father to his son by choosing to teach him better. Anyways I was surprised when the story ended so suddenly on a happy note - Wenwen (who long stopped calling himself Chi Wen in the narration) was running around with a sparkler (?) happily on New Year's... Like I thought the story would have a time skip or something 🤣 but it's alright that it ends knowing he'll have a smoother life now


Low-key hoped for more chapters:


i might have missed it but did ML ever get the orchid the FL was raising for him? Or was it all "look but don't touch" since both father and son (and paternal grandfather!) are natural plant killers? Also would have liked the female bodyguard to have had an action scene or something hahaha or if it's confirmed whether or not the FL was originally reborn back into this world since she herself isn't sure (originally she switched bodies and dreamt that Fu Ruoruo is happily living with her parents, later on she stopped feeling the original bodies feelings or memories and had to imagined how the original would feel seeing the Fu father, but near the end she's speculating "was I originally...?" So that's a mystery that's never solved or maybe I misunderstood idk I haven't read the extra chapters)

W-wait I finished the story what it was so good I didnt notice!

This is such a wholesome story, it brought me to tears on the first part, brought me laughter from the cuteness and it just generally warms my heart from the cuteness

Spoilers on some of the stuff that struck the most but these are some important key notes in the story

... more>>

The story has 2 main point of views but we mainly follow the transmigrated female lead Fang YunRuo. The other is the reincarnated back to the past baby WenWen

The first original goals of the characters at the start of the story

-FYR wanting WW to never experience his bad ending by being a good mother and shelter him

-WW wanting revenge on his mother why he was 'abandoned' and left to face the cruel world alone


WW's point of view from being hostile yet childish because he couldn't fight a baby's instinct was really cute, at the same time youd want to scream ARE YOU BLIND???

But you end up having to understand where that hate came from, he didnt know a lot of things going on behind the scenes that happened in his previous life and he faced the cruelty of the original novels FL and ML ruining his life because he was the 'villain'. The original plot gave him a miserable life without explaination.

Fast forward to a few more chapters that gave him hints and realizations that his mom does love him, this gave him doubts of his past. What if he was never abandoned but because his mother was actually killed? FYR filled this plot hole in the story for him in this life because we never truly knew what happened to OG FYR

just him realizing that he was actually loved, and fully accepted his mother made me cry real tears. Thats when he started to truly be a child and experience the childhood that he never had. (TwT)

And here comes ML (daddy) , both WW and FYR are literally the fairytale family. But I have to admit, poor ML hahaha he cant compete with his own son for his wife's affection. The flow is slow but not too slow, there is reasonable distance and closeness. But im glad ML was able to win over his family in the end (by making WW his great ancestor hahaha) and become a great dad

Cutie family novel!!!!

Ofc the cute bunbun is the best!!! Although he does have his pride as an adult inside a child's body, he acts and enjoys being spoiled as a kid by his mum and later on his dad uwu He was a bit judgmental on the FL at first, but after knowing the reason for his abandonment in the past life, he quickly let go of his walls and absolutely adored his mom, the FL.

FL accepted herself as the mum's child from the very beginning since she was the... more>> one who conceived and gave birth to him.

In the previous life in the novel, the oriHost had Wenwen from another man. When FL transmigrated, she went to the wrong room and did snusnu with ML (both were drugged).

She was very kind and gentle as a mom to Wenwen and is also a very hardworking florist (?) that specializes in orchids.

The ML's existence wasn't too strong, but he was the one who did most of the revenge part for the FL and the bunbun. Although he is a scheming dogman, he respects FL and Wenwen's boundaries and tried to do things step-by-step. He was very considerate of their thoughts and protected and supported them behind the scenes. He even apologized to FL for touching her that night since he was a bit sober in the beginning, but he ended up falling into temptation. He's one of those great MLs who's dominant when needed be, and at the same time, knows when to admit his mistakes.

The FL and ML relationship was very subtle as FL didn't want to get married and have another child (she didn't want Wenwen to experience what oriHost experienced). The family dynamics was cute, and the side characters were lovable! No second ML/second FL here! Only b"tch OriFL and scumbag OriML were really baaad characters.

Over-all, this novel is a pretty good way to past the time~ Buns are always cuuute~ <<less

Even though it has the same old plot as many other novels, this one stands out. Both mom and son are reborn, but the mother is another person with the same name and the son came back as a baby. She's matured and hardworking, she immediately takes the baby as her own and loves him deeply. The reborn son is full of grievances and despise her because he's sure she's going to abandon him like she did in the his other life, but eventually came to love her to death... more>> when he found out the truth about why she left, this part was the saddest (and the only one) of the novel. The romance is suuuuuuper slow, almost at the end of the novel and there aren't many romantic situations, but is still very sweet. The revenge was finely resolved thanks to the help of the ML, so it was very satisfying. There are many funny moments between father and son, and super sweet moments with the mother. Wen Wen is an adult in a child's body, but even then he learnt to relax and live his childhood fully, something he didn't have the chance to in his first life. The end is kind of abrupt, I'd like to read more about other situations in the novel, I feel very sad about the FL's father, she wasn't the original so she didn't have it in her to forgive him, but I'm sure that the original would have do it. <<less

(MTL) Generally a fairly chill and heartwarming novel. Sure, there's the revenge and dog-blood drama arcs in the middle and end, but honestly, they were kinda plain. I personally didn't feel much emotion (anger, resentment, sympathy) for any of the characters that I would normally feel for other similar novels. *Shrug* Romance was slow-paced and plain, but it was definitely heartwarming. Overall, read this if you want to relax and enjoy fluff.

It's another 'pregnant with someone child, run away, and raising the bun while living a new life with newly found easy cheat skill and other convenience things' plus 'conquer the netizen's heart through live streaming'. What makes it interesting for me, at least for the first half of novel, is that the son is a reborn 'villain'. I almost cry when he monologue his realization about why his mother left him alone. The mother-son duo interaction is so damn cute! And the fact that the father realizes earlier is also... more>> a plus for me.

However, despite being the title character, the dynamics of the story were divided between FL and ML (the son)... and it's out of balance, I think. Most likely because the son starts acting like real child (which the Author rationalized) but on the other hand his appearance and significant are reduced in important scenes. His past as actor and the knowledge about the antagonists did not and will not influences his mother decision (... which quite understandable since FL decided to live streaming off-face and he's still a baby) because setting. As the 'villain' son he can only monologue about his past lives without being unable to affect his mother, who doesn't need any help. This son as character is kind of... waste, plot-wise.

Then the ML start to 'shift' to the father, which makes the story proceed between FL, ML, and the now-tritagonist 'villain' son. And then I thought: what the use of this reborn villain son? I leave because the convenience becoming too convenient and everything else is too plain to continue.

Sure, based on spoiler from another reviewer, it seems he still has an important role but I expect more.

And what the hell with the AU's ending in Extra??

This story was such a clear stream of water. Well, the stream transformed into a lake at the end but no biggie. (By that I mean that the plot kinda saturated at that point)

The FL is such a kind lady, she gives me that "ara~ ara~ kind okaa-sama" vibes if you know.

Little baby Wen Wen it's a baby tsundere, I hate babies in reality but I love them 2D lol.

... more>> ML is not pushy. He wants to take it slow and mostly helps them with the guise of a friend.

The love and support that FL receives from everyone helping her really makes me want to spam those cats blasting sparkling hearts emojis stickers everywhere.


Tho I really like the story, there're many parts where things are just left out of the picture.


FL's father got no redemption arc, only a regret one.

No marriage in the end. But the still end up together as bf and gf.

We don't meet ML's full family.

ML wanted to retire but I wanted to see the fans reactions too. I thought that was going to be the logical introduction to ML's background to the world.

I wanted to see my baby Wan Wan grow up.

A really fun read. There are a lot of cliches, but the heroine does not easily accept the male lead. Her IQ is online. I wish the story was longer!!

There were only 2 things that made me sad, one related to the romance and one related to the ending.

... more>>

Maybe I'm too thirsty, but I kind of hoped it would show more of the heroine getting swept up off her feet and potentially some sexual tension after they confirmed their relationship?? It was so wholesome <O///O>



I wish there was a '20 years later' epilogue consisting of at least 10 or more chapters. After the all-powerful plot went offline, everyone but the Cheng brother had their IQ gradually awaken. Tbh, I think even he woke up to a degree but the psychological conditioning of many years was too deep and he didn't have a shock to awaken him like Fu father... Regardless the plot is scheduled to come back online 20 years later. This would be a good chance for the author to introduce more characters, tie up loose ends, show the happy end of the child, and explore the remaining mystery of the 'plot'.

One way to do this while keeping it interesting would be to have the main lead be a character outside of the power of the plot: a little padded jacket for the main characters who aren't planning on having more children. A daughter of the Si family, a sister who supports her brothers acting career and directly confronts the little daughter of the Cheng family.

Edit: I found the fanwai and am almost satisfied haha. It was close to what I hoped! That the author added more crossings was a little over complicated though... At least some of the future is hinted at.


On another note, is it just me or is our little reborn villain's sexuality not determined yet?

He could go either way with the open attitude of the Si family. Maybe the author didn't write the after story because it would be BL???

Started good but momentum wasn't supported. 4/5 Good read, very cute bun and no drama

A new twist where the bun is rebirthed and slowly accepts his mother was so touching. In the beginning, there were so many cute scenes and very heart aching scenes (when some of the secrets were revealed). I love the mother and son pair. He's just too cute and actually this is my 1st CN where the FL birthed the dumpling 😊

Romance: As a couple they didn't really have sweet moments. No food for single... more>> dogs.

imo they just made the since you're the mother of my son let's get together.

Just a decent and simple cp with a questionable beginning *rolls eyes*

But still enjoyed this to finish it in MTL. I'm addicted to Childcare stories, ugh! <<less
