Transmigration: Raising the Child of the Male Lead Boss


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

Yu Yaoyao was a snake spirit who died by lightning and as a result, transmigrated to a novel she had read in her past life. This third-rate actress had the same name as her, but then she remembered she was only a pitiful cannon fodder in the novel she had chanced to read.

This obscure actress’s life was riddled with scandals, and as a result, her diamond husband left her. She then hit the rock bottom of her career and ultimately became paralyzed by an accident. Not to mention, she had neglected her child, leading him to an early death.

Graced with a new life, Yu Yaoyao is determined to steer her path away from the plot’s death flags. She’ll be the best wife, the most loving mother and she’ll rise to the top of the entertainment industry!

I like reading it because it's entertaining to read. I'm pretty bored so this is good to past the time. In the latest chapter I'm reading, that was really fun hahaha. I'm looking forward for the future updates and I came here to do the review just to support like what translator said. Like the YYY fans, I'm also looking forward to lil cub no. 2!!!

It’s cute but the FL is too much of a Mary Sue for me. I don’t know, maybe I’m too old for this type of story. But it’s cute, too cute if I must say. Kinda like the usual CEO-Actress trope with the usual lead actress antagonist and a cute baby on the side. A good read if you have time to waste and don’t want to use your brain too much.

And of course, her relationship with her husband is very nice too, once they've become closer, shall we say?

This novel is not groundbreaking in plot. However, it accomplishes what it set out to do beautifully. The novel is a highly enjoyable read. The Female Lead's thoughts and actions tending toward the unbelievable is usually something that has me dropping the novel quickly after starting. Instead the author had me hooked right away. I found myself drawn into the novel and easily throwing any disbelief to the wayside. I didn't want to stop reading. I desperately wanted to know what hijinks the female lead would get herself into next.

The... more>> author is hysterically funny. Which says a lot considering that I MTL'd the novel from Chapter 12 onward. Even simply using Google translate, the magic of the novel was easily expressed. The humor and fun family dynamics carried this novel. Though the romance was good too.

If you are looking for an enjoyable, fluffy read to brighten up a day, then I highly recommend this one! <<less

All hail the FLUFF!

We all love a shamless and hilarious FL, a doting ML and of course an adorable and smartass little bun.

One of best thing about this novel, both of the parents are present then they started building their relationship, feelings and family (unlike novels with little babies which usually start with either the father or mother is unknown)

Another thing is their relationship isn't hidden— the sweet antics of the ML and FL are shown on national TV/ LIVE BROADCAST hahaha so imagine how the all single dogs... more>> fans reacts.

Reccomended for all fluff lovers ❤ <<less

I felt it gets kind of repetitive and a bit too Mary Sue. It’s so... CONVENIENT. Like, world revolves around her. Example: when she needed a job but her reputation is sh*t to the point of prostitution, some random illogical tv show that doesn’t add up with a ‘not powerful’ but actually powerful director decides she’s the one and EVERYTHING she does and EVERYTHING that happens always CONVENIENTLY highlights her good points. It makes me feel as if the author is delusional. The mob mentality is sickening, seriously, everyone else... more>> are all so ret*rded and unable think for themselves. I don’t know why people think this is fluffy or Romantic, it literally is a one man play. I don’t even know what to say. The drama is so predictable it’s s*upid and the face-slapping... it’s more like brick-slapping. The psychology in this novel is absolutely.. uGGgh, like I’ve had so many moments of just ‘wut?’ Or ? that it completely ruins the flow. I’ve tried, I’ve really tried to see it how these other people see it but it made me feel like I’ve wasted my time and oxygen. There are some minor good points like her past but it is overall too disappointing. <<less

This is another chinese story involving transmigration and having a buy-1-take-1 handsome husband and adorable son for free.

I like how sassy the MC is in just the right way. Even though the story's plotline is a bit over-used, (The MC is a transmigrator who decides to be kind to her new child, pursue her new acting career, and love her husband to death), but in the end it still has a unique twist to it.

... more>>

The MC's past life was originally a snake spirit.


Due to how direct and seductive the MC is to her new husband, be prepared for fluff rides and prepare your insulin dose in advance. ? <<less

This is actually a really good romance story. There's lots and lots of fluff, the only misunderstandings occur at the very beginning and are quickly addressed, no angst, no tragedy, not even bloody revenge. It's about choosing to live well and falling in love.

MC was a snake spirit who lived in a zoo, and spent most of her time reading tr*shy novels and watching dramas on the tablet/smartphone secreted away in her den. Then one day she died and then transmigrated into a novel she had read recently, as the... more>> canon fodder tragic victim character, before the host did herself in and got divorced from the male protagonist (also current ML). So of course she avoids the original plot and decides to hug the ML's leg, doing her best to turn around the misunderstandings that had been causing a rift between him and original host, and fixing her relationship with their kid.

The majority of the story are about how MC's... odd point of view (due to being former snake) causes a lot of humorous situations, and the sheer cuteness of her interaction with original host's (now hers) five year old child. <<less

Light-hearted fluffy hilarious read with amazing character settings. Almost no character to dislike (except 1 disgusting villain).

MC and ML are OP in different ways. They both compliment each other so much the romance is so fluffy. MC is hundred years old snake demon transmigrated into the body of a cannon fodder female character in a novel right before an event that's supposed to trigger the downward turn of the character life. ML is the husband of the MC body in the novel.

Before MC comes, ML and the original body owner... more>> relationship has already cooled and on the verge of ending. MC tried hard to quickly turn around the situation but ML remains unmoved for some time. Which is understandable as you read the novel. Their relationship flows nicely afterwards and their interaction is both funny and sweet.

They had a son before MC transmigrated and the son was also estranged from the original body owner. Gradually MC managed to patch up her relationship with the son.

The dynamic between this son and the ML is also hilarious. The father finally ushered his spring and the son finally ushered his sweet childhood so they clash a lot, lol. Probably because they are quite alike deep inside. Like father like son.

I also like this novel because despite the dog blood plot, it doesn't use misunderstanding troupe which is prevalent in thia type of novel. Most misunderstanding between characters are used to create a comedic effect, which really makes you laugh. The characters are told in a consistent way that you have this feeling something funny is going to happen but you laugh either way when it happens.

I highly recommend this novel. The characters are really lovable and they develop along with the story. And I look forward to the proper translation by the translator.


I can't get over the part where Shen Rui (the son) told his parents that he felt his little sister will grow into a black bellied woman because she inherits Shen Yichong's IQ and YYY beauty and that it would be awful, lol

Typically, a novel that is over 200 chapters becomes lifeless and unfocused. If the villains haven't been dealt with yet the story would need a good explanation of why. The only way is to have a good base and good characters.

This novel forms a strong base and focuses on the main characters, not the original novel's scenario. The plot is based on a 'transmigration into a novel', where the characters from the original novel are pulled out one-by-one and dealt with. The main story is Yu YaoYao - her family and rise to stardom, the original novel is like a side-plot that intervenes now and then using the original characters to create conflict. This is a great rom-com story.

Summary -

MC, Yu YaoYao: when she first transmigrates, she is forced to... more>> deal with the aftermath of the previous Yu YaoYao. The previous Yu YaoYao married and had a son 5-years ago, she neglected her son and avoided her husband. Her half-sister, green-tea b*tch, uses Yu YaoYao for money and creates a well-planned plot to ruin her life. The last attempt to threaten Shen Yichong for 5 million yuan with sleeping pills (half-sister's idea) allowed the MC to transmigrate into Yu YaoYao's body. Her husband started pressing for divorce immediately after that attempt, and the MC persuades him for one last chance. He draws up a 2-year contract: to be a proper mother to her son and a proper wife in the eyes of the public.

As a previous demon snake now beautiful human, she has a deadly case of narcissism and wishes nothing more than to be in the spotlight. Her shameless narcissism is hilarious and acceptable, it's not self-absorbed or conceited, even I wouldn't like a rude person. As MC's husband, Shen Yichong's frustration is our nourishment. MC practically flabbergasts this man 20x a day, and his son white knights MC and pits him. Please read this. I want you to work out abs like mine, you won't die from laughter if you pace yourself, read with caution I don't need you to send me a hospital bill.

Yu YaoYao immediately starts to change her new family's view of her, she dotes on her adorable 5-year-old son and begins to earnestly prove herself to her husband. Her son's longing for his mother, who neglected him since he was born, is both incredibly sad and adorable, I can only be grateful that the MC treats him so well. She adores her cute bun and even shares her bad habits with him. Since he was lacking maternal love and was suddenly showered with it, he sticks to the MC like glue and becomes her little white knight, also her partner-in-crime. He guards YaoYao and teaches Shen Yichong to treat her well, he often pits Shen Yichong leaving him speechless LMAO. (To dig a pit is a Chinese proverb. If you read Chinese novels you will already know this one lol.)

Her husband, Shen Yichong, knew he was done tolerating Yu YaoYao. After the last suicide attempt, he talks about the divorce and gives her one last chance. The MC is of course different than the previous Yu YaoYao and immediately begins to mend her relationship with her husband and son, Shen Yichong finds her change hard to believe but eventually gives in to the new her. I, honestly feel pity for Shen Yichong. Yes, his background and current situation is bad, but that's not what I mean. Yu YaoYao is SO exhausting, her antics are lovable/hilarious but this straitlaced man has pressed his forehead temples so much that if it were a drinking game we'd be drunk by chapter 20. After all, her new attitude is a 180 from the previous quiet Yu YaoYao, Shen Yichong has gained a spoiled willful daughter but also a wife who won't stop shamelessly seducing him lol.

The relationship between Yu YaoYao, Shen Yichong, and Little Bun is sooooo fulfilling, this family is why I read. The story is great, but their relationship is the best part.


Even at chapter 232, we've seen one OG character completely destroyed, one OG character currently bashed online for being ungrateful to Shen Yichong (read the background), and one character currently running around like a headless chicken because her scheme was ruined by the MC.


This novel is so great because I FEEL STABILITY.

Other stories with this transmigration plot have one clear goal: to fight the bad guy and win. As you know, novels only show a snippet of a timeline where the story takes place, the before and after are unknown. So when the bad guy is ruined, the story would end, and I would think "why are there more chapters". Because from my experience, a lot of stories build their base on entering the OG novel's plot, leaving the after story to diminish in quality. This story builds the base on Yu YaoYao, her family and rise to stardom, which supports the story even when the OG novel's plot doesn't appear.

What I mean is, this is Yu YaoYao's story which interacts with the original novel's story. Even when an OG novel character is ruined, I don't care because it won't shake the core of the main story. Which is amazing.

232 chapters strong, this novel does not rely on the 'original novel's plot' to continue, because from the beginning Yu YaoYao created her own main story. The content only enriches itself, it does not diminish in quality... I've never thought that the progress was slow because each chapter was hilarious and interesting. Like I said this is Yu YaoYao's story, not the 'OG Novels', the first mention of the OG heroine was a passing 'look at my eyes, honey answer me straight' and 'I'll bite you if you cheat' from Yu YaoYao to Shen Yichong in chapter 228.

Well, I'm done reviewing my eyes are tired. Seriously, give this novel a try. I'm not a fan of 'childcare' tags but this one doesn't have the typical boring 'playtimes'. Most moments with her son are when; she is plotting with him against Shen Yichong, when he is lecturing his dad on 'how to be a good husband', or when he *sniffles* feels lonely from his incomplete childhood. He photoshopped his picture into their wedding pics *criesss* and he hugged his mom when she was asleep because he was afraid she'd be angry... I can't. It's like I said, sad and adorable. <<less

I'm so in love with Yaoyao. I'm sad at how slow the pair is moving, but I'm rooting for them. Yaoyao is a fun and amazing MC. Our little steamed bun is this family's precious son and we love him so much.

I almost paid $90 to get those extra chapters but we're in lockdown and I don't have any money for it.

Very much recommended for those looking for maximum fluff ~


Yaoyao's a snake in human form. Sexy, spoiled, slithering~~everyday anywhere anytime with her husband yo~~. Small bun is hilariously a carbon copy of dad-he likes everything his dad likes.. Hahha


Just invest a little patience at the start since their relationship isnt stable yet and she just settled in "her" human body but it will be very good later. At most chapter 10 in mtl.

pheeeew. Soo nice~

It was really interesting and fun to read. Especially MC personality bring some comedy here and there and it is gold. ML reaction are also priceless. There's also a good baby here~

You can see right from the start that this novel have some major difference than other marriage entertainment novels which is MC and ML marriage is not hidden and already publicized to the public right from the beginning. Which means no hidden dog blood drama here which is a good thing~

MC also has some comedy gold in her personality.... more>> Even people like me who don't really like comedy feel amused by her antics. Also like the fact MC can still be serious in doing her job while still maintaining the same personality off scene.

ML is such a good father and husband~ he's willing to do everything and serve MC anytime cause he loves her so much <3 and the rivalry between father and son to get MC attention is also gold~ ML is like a home stayed husband that can do housework but he is still a big boss :)

I also like how it's not only ML that gave his love endlessly to MC, but MC also gave back the same love to ML which is really sweet awww <3 considering MC usual antics you would thought she doesn't really seem to be the type to give love but only to accept which is why it's much sweeter than usual <3

MC work in the entertainment industries is smooth sailing because of her own efforts in her good acting and some of the film in the movie take some real life world problem which can make the reader be more aware of that problem which is a good thing! And also because MC and ML married relationship already known to the public, there's no toxic black fans that smears MC name for clinging to ML and other usual toxic chat isn't seen too and that's good~

The only problem I have is that the last 30 chapters out of 215 chapters seems like a filler and not much is going on and it is boring so I skim over it until the last chapter. But still the first 180 chapters is really good and lovely!

Recommend to read ~

What is it? Fluffy, romantic, and extremely funny cnovel. That's it. As stated by others, it isn't groundbreaking but it is a refreshing read. No excessive face slapping, villains get their just desserts (no second servings too!), and surprisingly, our family have character meat in them (most of the cast actually). It ends in an appropriate length which is commendable compared to the repeated plot of a 1k chaptered novel. 5/5

very good and funny!! I started reading the translation and I could not stop my curiosity and read the original version of Chinese (which is easy to understand) I like the FL that is very nice, self-confident and comprehensive (also the fact that her transmigration is different is so good), the ML is also nice, it is not scum, and it remains true to its personality since although it is a s*ave-wife it is still “cold” and corrects when necessary and does not say yes to yes to everything compared... more>> to other ML. The two children are also too cute, the plot manages to move forward and I liked the fact that it is not a hidden marriage. <<less

FL and MLs interactions get better down the road.

Villains? Doesn't exist in her eyes. Unintentionally destroys them lol. There was 1 on the verge but she realizes FL is better than her. She helped FL in the end.

FLs acting career reached its peak.


the film emperor and original FL actually met when they were young but her scheming sister is such a b itch that she tricked them both. She had her friend pretend to be FL when FL and emperor dude were exchanging letters. Emperor guy finally realizes all this and destoryed the novel FL. He tried to get FL back but it was too late. The only way he stopped chasing after FL when he entered the family's reality show but FL was on a break after giving birth. Her son talked to the emperor and they became friends.

Its funny reading interactions between FL and other actors. Especially the part where they read her script notes.


The end kinda got boring but thats okay. They lived happily ever afterrr

This story is brilliantly written and doesn't take its self too seriously.

In so far add the plot goes, it's nothing new aside from the fact that it's a creature-human transmigration story (haven't read many of those... not even one).

The execution is what sets the novel apart from other ones of the same genre.

... more>> The characterisation of the MC is on-point and it reminds the reader often that the MC wasn't originally human which is a plus for continuity (actually ++). Asides from that, I do love me some shameless characters.

The steam bun attacks my heart with so much cuteness I could die.

Not much about the ML at this point besides his cold nature and his love for the kid but he gets a thumbs up too.

NI YI!! (All I can say about him at this moment) <<less

Since this is my favourite, I strongly recommend it!

I read this novel quite a long time ago. Honestly, this was the first story that I MTL'ed; and surprisingly, it was easy to understand ^^/

This story has been the no.1 in my favourite bookshelf for a long time now and I have yet to find other stories that can replace it.

... more>> I've reread it so many times I lost count already~

If you love quirky, fun, easy going, sweet and strong characters; this amazing MC has those^-^

ML is aloof but he's very sweet and pampering towards MC. He's responsible, dependable and not at all abusive!

Not to forget (because he's like the most important character here) ; the little bun! He's so adorable yet quite mature (sadly because he was neglected by the original mother before MC came).

He's expressive in showing his love to his mother and he's super cute when he's 'educating' his father. Even though he's clever and smart (because all he did before the MC came, was studying!), he still sulks and throws tantrum occasionally.

Little bun is really cute; he's a fierce tiger cub~

Another thing that I feel happy about is how the bad guys always got what they deserved! And how good people who initially doubted her always became her huge fans. Those were very satisfying~

Lastly, this story is unique and one of a kind because MC is super super awesome in being an actress and celebrity! You'll have to read the story to know how she does it~

I always have fun reading this, hoping everyone else will have fun too^.^

Kudos to the author and the translators^^ <<less

This novel is among the best strong FL novels out there.

She is smart, witty, comedic and knows how to switch a situation to her own favour.

The character of ML is also not bad even if he belongs to the troupe of cold CEO Types.

I love novels where FL can stand for themselves and is very clear on what she wants. She doesn't let misunderstanding happen between herself and ML. Love her.

Translator-san has also done a pretty good job. I would recommend this to all who loves transmigration with witty FL.
