54-year-old “Heavenly King” Andy Lau (劉德華) and his Malaysian wife Carol Chu, 50, are expecting a second child, said Hong Kong reports.
The pregnancy was reported by Next Magazine on 30th March, with a cover photo of Carol and her apparent baby bump.
Lau neither denied nor confirmed the report when contacted by Apple Daily. He said, “No response, thank you for your concern.”
Lau, whose daughter Hanna is 4 years old, apparently wants a son. He said so when he celebrated his birthday with his fans last year, reported Next Magazine. The couple prayed to Buddha for a son and the family became vegetarians, said the report.
Carol rested for a year after Hanna’s birth, before she began receiving regular artificial insemination, said the magazine.
An unnamed source was quoted as saying, “Each time it failed, she would wait two weeks and try again. Andy didn’t want his wife to suffer too much and made it clear they would try two more years, till she’s 50, then give up. But they succeeded in the end.”
The magazine said Carol was 4 months pregnant when she was photographed at a dried seafood shop in Kowloon on 22nd March.
She has been taking extra care since she learnt about her pregnancy in December and Lau has taken over the duty of taking Hanna to school when he is in Hong Kong, said the report.
