New parent: Kathy Chow Man Kei
Bundle of joy: Jacques (Chinese name: Kai Yu) (born on July 3)
The actress and model (and sister of Niki Chow, also an actress and model) demonstrated how to rock a baby bump when she was pregnant with Jacques. Her French husband, Julien Lepeu, was the attentive exemplary spouse when Kathy was discharged from hospital after delivering Jacques: “My job is to take care of my wife,” he replied when asked whether he’d go to work the next day.
The first-time mum hired a nanny to take care of the baby. “I am still not used to the feeling of being a mother,” she said. “As of now, the baby only knows how to drink milk, cry, and sleep.”
New parents: Moses Chan and Aimee Chan
Bundle of joy: Nathan (born on February 26)
Nathan joins his big brother, 2-year-old Aiden, in the Chan household. Moses previously indicated his intention to try for a daughter next. And after a roughly 4-month break, Aimee is already pregnant with the couple’s third child, due April 2016.
Aimee said she and Moses both want a large family so that the house will be lively, but she added that three was enough, because she hopes to return to acting in the future and having more than three kids would be too taxing on the couple, who prefer to take care of their offspring themselves.
New parent: Cathy Tsui
Bundle of joy: Kin Hei (born on October 1)
The former actress was richly rewarded for bringing forth descendants for her father-in-law, Hong Kong’s second richest man and real estate tycoon Lee Shau Kee, who’s estimated to be worth US$23.9 billion (approximately S$33.7 billion). Cathy delivered her fourth child at the young age of 33, and her past baby bonuses include a multimillion-dollar mansion in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles.
But the wonder of conception hasn’t worn off for her yet. “I am still so amazed with the science and process of creating a child,” she wrote on Instagram before she gave birth to her second son, Kin Hei. “Seeing my belly grow is like a miracle. Two bodies under the same skin. Being a mother is the most rewarding experience.”
