Andy Lau

Hong Kong actor, Andy Lau is now a proud father to a baby girl after his Malaysian-Chinese wife, Carol Chu, reportedly gave birth on Wednesday morning.

To make sure the paparazzi and media were kept out of the hospital, Andy specially-requested for all hospital staff to display their access pass prominently. He also hired bodyguards to ensure the delivery was kept a secret from the public.

The 50-year-old, who had finally fulfilled his lifelong wish to be a father, was said to have accompanied his wife throughout her labor and started to tear when the newborn was handed over to him.

Even though the Heavenly King has yet to confirm the news, Andy's showbiz buddies have been congratulating him on his daughter's birth on their microblogs. On Wednesday night, Jordon Chen, Andy's good friend, posted a photo of a baby girl on his microblog, setting the Internet abuzz with the news that it could be the actor's newborn.
