Is Andy Lau the proud father of a baby boy?
Rumour has it that Carol Chu, the wife of Andy Lau, has given birth to a baby boy secretly in early August. Singaporean newspaper Ming Pao Daily News reported that a weekly magazine came forward with the news, but it hasn’t been confirmed or denied by the singer.
Although no hard evidence has been brought forward, the magazine cited an instant when Chu looked exhausted and swollen. It was during Lau’s 55th birthday party held on Tuesday (27th September), and Chu reportedly was too tired to even hold her daughter.
However, Ming Pao Daily did clarify that the report should be taken with a grain of salt as Lau has been working tediously recently. This is in contrast to when his daughter was born, as the singer-cum-actor took time off work. He was spotted in Prague last month for a movie filming.
Lau has been quoted as saying that he did not want the birth of his son to be publicly announced as he wanted to shield his son from the paparazzi. Lau did not want his son to live under the scrutiny of the public, which happened to his daughter.
UPDATE (29th September, 5:30pm):
Oops, false alarm guys! Andy Lau has denied rumours of his wife giving birth to their 2nd child. The singer said, “I’m telling everyone clearly that it isn’t true”.
Besides that, he also added that people (fans and media) have been “giving him face” and he is able to live comfortably at home with his wife and 4-year-old daughter.
In April, Lau denied that his wife was pregnant on his Weibo account. When questioned by reporters, Lau simple answered, “If it is true, I will announce it on my website.”
