49-year-old Andy Lau has always wanted to be a dad.
According to Hong Kong reports, their prayers have been heard after one year and word has it that Andy’s missus, Carol Choo, is now three months pregnant.
An eyewitness caught sight of Mrs Lau more than a month ago at the gynecologist’s in St Paul’s Hospital under the escort of her maid and bodyguards.
Spotted with a fuller figure last month, Carol was also seen in Causeway Bay with a female friend. The ex-beauty queen scurried to her car when she realized she was being followed by the paparazzi.
When questioned about the pregnancy at the movie premiere of Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame, Andy did not refute the rumours and smilingly said, “Be good and don’t ask.”
With a movie promotion underway, a new album in the works, and ongoing rehearsals for his New Year’s Eve concert, Andy showed no signs of fatigue on the set of his MV in Taiwan two days ago. Despite his tight work schedule, he appeared coquettish while shaking his booty.
Andy’s family and friends have remained tight-lipped about the pregnancy rumours. His TVB buddies Ken Tong and Michael Miu have both suggested that they are unaware of such news.
Ken Tong said, “I would definitely congratulate him if it’s true.”
There has yet to be any formal response from his Taiwan entourage, as they expressed that this is his personal matter and they will leave it as that.
During their courtship days, the pious Carol even went to the Snake Temple in Malaysia to pray for a child. After the exposure of their marriage back in August last year, Andy publicly announced online that they have been trying to get pregnant via in vitro fertilization.
There were also rumours late last year that Andy bought an apartment for his wife near their Kadoorie Hill home for her to concentrate on getting pregnant without disturbance from the paparazzi.
