Fann Wong: Yes, we're having a baby!
The rumours are true – local actors Christopher Lee and Fann Wong are expecting their first child – a “horse” baby together.
Chris, 42, personally shared the good news with reporters in Taiwan at Catwalk’s prayer ceremony today. “We have been looking forward to this, thank you for your concern!” he said with a smile. In a follow-up Facebook post, he wrote: "I'm really happy [because] I am going to be a father this year."
Fann also confirmed the good news in her latest Instagram post: "Yes, we're having a BABY! (sic) Can't wait to see our little new bundle of joy! Huat ah everyone!"
The actress also thanked everyone for their "care and support" in this journey and said that their baby is "doing very well and very healthy".
"I hope that the baby will arrive safe and sound and healthy with everyone's blessings," she wrote.
A representative from Catwalk Asia also confirmed the good news when contacted and said that Fann, who is currently resting in Singapore, is “three months pregnant.”
Chris’ colleague, Bianca Bai, who was present at the prayer ceremony, was delighted to hear that the couple is expecting a baby and congratulated them.
“I have known Chris for a long time and I have been waiting to hear this piece of news. When I was told of it, I even had goosebumps! I’m really happy for them!” said the model-turned-actress in an interview.
Last Monday, an insider revealed that Fann is pregnant and in her first trimester of pregnancy. Said insider added that the couple have yet to announce the news due to “Chinese pregnancy taboos” that consider it inauspicious to announce one’s pregnancy during the first trimester.

In a previous interview with xinmsn, Catwalk’s rep revealed that Fann personally requested to go on “a long break” during Christmas last year. Since Fann signed a contract with Catwalk Asia early last year, she has been based overseas for long periods of time for work. On top of participating in overseas drama productions, she has also made numerous commercial appearances at fashion and entertainment-related events.
Fann and her actor hubby Chris were in Singapore last week to celebrate her 43rd birthday (last Monday) and to spend the Chinese New Year celebrations with their families. The couple are said to have been trying for a baby since they got married in September 2009.
