There's no doubt that Simon Yam’s 15-year-old daughter Ella is a stunner. For starters, she's 1.8m tall.
Legs for days
Ever since Simon stopped objecting to Ella's showbiz dreams, brands have lined up to cast her in campaigns. Talent agencies are also hoping to sign Ella, who last year, became the youngest person ever to grace the cover of Cosmopolitan Hongkong, on as an artiste, but Simon has put his foot down and rejected all of them.
“At this stage in her life, studies come first,” he once shared in an interview. “We’re okay with her doing photo shoots because it’s a short commitment and taking photos is a way of creating momentos to look back on when you’re older (…) I enjoy taking candid shots of her too.”
Like mother, like daughter
Ella’s supermodel mum, Qi Qi, went on Instagram Live over the weekend, where she revealed a secret about Ella. “She’s managed to grow this tall because she has enough sleep every night,” Qi Qi said. “She goes to bed at 9pm almost every day. This is a really good habit and I think it’s the reason she’s grown so tall and has good skin.”
Not everyone was quite as convinced that sleeping early works wonder. One netizen joked: “Qi Qi seems to have forgotten that Ella has Simon Yam and Qi Qi as her parents. Even if she slept four hours a day, I’m sure she would be her height sooner or later.” Another netizen agreed that Qi Qi’s advice didn't work for him, claiming that he’s been sleeping at 9pm since he was in pre-school because his parents are very strict, and is only 1.7m at 18 years old.
Guess this trick only works if your parents are Simon Yam & Qi Qi
