Gigi Lai and Michelle Reis Both Pregnant With Their Second Child

Retired Hong Kong actresses, 40-year-old Gigi Lai (黎姿) and 41-year-old Michelle Reis (李嘉欣), had several things in common. Gigi had once dated Michelle’s husband, Julian Hui (许晋亨), many years ago. Both women found love and got married in 2008 to influential, powerful men, cementing their elite statuses in Hong Kong society. It was understood that Gigi and Michelle were both in the early stages of pregnancy at this time!

Gigi Lai Eager To Chase A Boy

Gigi Lai gave birth to a set of premature twin daughters in July 2010. The girls were conceived via in-vitro fertilization. Carrying twins caused Gigi to balloon up to 180 pounds. According to Next Magazine, Gigi’s husband, Patrick Ma (馬廷強), was concerned about Gigi’s safety and did not want her to become pregnant again. However, Gigi wanted to give her husband a son, thus successfully conceived again via in-vitro fertilization recently.

Patrick was reportedly so happy with Gigi’s second pregnancy that he was eager to buy a new house for Gigi! The couple was spotted scouting a $100 million HKD luxury home together.

Gigi’s friend, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, stated that Gigi appeared to have gained weight at a social gathering last month. “After one month of not seeing Gigi, she gained obvious weight. She intentionally did not wish to remove her jacket. We teased her as to whether she was pregnant. She smiled and did not reply. Afterward, we realized that she was pregnant!”

Michelle Reis Spotted With Baby Bump

Since Michelle Reis gave birth to her son, Jayden Max Hui, in February 2011, she was often asked when she intended to have another baby. As early as January 2012, Michelle was rumored to be carrying a “Dragon Girl.” The former actress continued to deny pregnancy rumors despite being spotted with a noticeable baby bump on March 18th. Going out to dinner with husband, Julian Hui, Michelle wore a tight-fitting grew dress which revealed her baby bump.

When asked if she was pregnant, Michelle smiled and said no. Supported by her husband, Michelle dodged press questions. Perhaps Michelle did not wish to admit that she was pregnant until the passing of the first trimester of pregnancy, after the fetus’ condition was stabilized.

      Congrats to Gigi and Michelle! Best of luck to them.

    2. sandcherry says:

      Congratulations to both ladies mentioned above.

    3. Tammy says:

      Didn’t know Michelle’s husband dated Gigi Lai. Both are so beautiful.

      • Hannah says:

        Same. Gigi’s dating life wasn’t really talked about. I only know she dated Frankie Lam in the early 90’s.

        • kiki says:

          wow, i didnt even no GL dated FL? i know she dated a few much older men before when she was really young but not FL hhaha oh well celebs who can tell whats what…

        • Hannah says:

          It was rumored that Gigi and Kenix were at odds on the set of Criminal Investigators 2.

          Yeah, Frankie dated quite a few good looking artists before Kenix. Love Frankie and Kenix though.

    4. Kay says:

      Gigi is unbelievably Young :( im jealous

      • Tracy says:

        She’s a timeless beauty. :)

      • HeTieShou says:

        Well her husband is rich and all so it is easy for her to keep up and maintain her looks.

        • Q says:

          Not necessarily. Take Michelle Reis for example. Isn’t her husband also rich? She’s only 1 year older than Gigi, but she looked a few years. I thought she was beautiful back in the days, still is, but she definitely didn’t age-well. Gigi has a young face.

        • Fox says:

          There are many women with richer husband than Gigi but their looks aren’t as good as her in her age.

        • cleo says:

          Agree :)

        • peary says:

          Agree, Gigi Lai is always a stunner. Love Beauty Goddess is not a misnomer for her. Michelle’s got a longer face, maybe that’s why???

    5. Fox says:

      Wow, really impressive of Gigi’s beauty. So timeless.

      • a-pop says:

        If every pretty lady can consume bird nest every day I’m sure every of them sure becoming timeless beauty.

        • Kay says:

          Actually, too much of “bird nest” may do you harm.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I am not sure how true that is…

        • Hannah says:

          @Kay – Possibly not “harm” you, but consume it in moderation?

        • Fox says:

          Bird nest can help but can’t against the time 100%. Some have a lot of bird nest and even botox but still can’t keep the youth with them.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I guess genetics is a part of it but your lifestyle and how you take care of yourself is also a part of it. Look at Yammie Lam, she looks like she is 67 when she is only supposed to be 47 due to her sad and tragic life.

        • Fox says:

          Obviously life style will affect. You think that a heavy smoker can maintain the good health and good skin?

    6. Lol says:

      Gigi has a really sweet face.

    7. fez says:

      they’re both beautiful for their age!!!
      gigi is 1971
      michelle is 1970

    8. Hannahh says:

      Hope it’s true! Congratz in advance!

    9. Michelle says:

      I’m very happy for both of them. I used to watch Michelle’s serial with Lai Ming. She was very beautiful there. Hope Gigi and Michelle keep healthy.

    10. Grace says:

      Smart ladies!!!
      Hope Gigi will have a healthy dragon boy!

    11. Kidd says:

      “Gigi’s husband, Patrick Ma (馬廷強), was concerned about Gigi’s safety and did not want her to become pregnant again.”

      See how much Gigi’s husband loves her? Gigi chose the right husband.

      • HeTieShou says:

        We all know that Gigi’s husband loves her but many were wondering if she really loved him…

        • Fox says:

          She dared herself in her age to give birth to his children, it can be considered as love. Maybe she dun love him like the type of young girls but she admires him and respects him as a husband. Then, they can make a happy family with a lot of love and respects.

        • Kidd says:

          “but many were wondering if she really loved him…”

          Why so? Because he’s crippled, old and not handsome, so, Gigi couldn’t have truly love him? What about personality? What about being touched by the guy’s caring and love?

          What I see here is a prejudice against women who marry rich. People seem to jump to conclusion that the woman must only love the man’s money.

          Fox is right about Gigi’s loves for her husband. Plus, her blissful look during her wedding shows that she’s truly happy in marrying this guy.

        • Q says:

          ^ Yup. I’ve been reading a lot of, “If you married a rich man, then you’re in it for the money.” Ridiculous.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Well, I think most women go for money to some extent, but the most important thing is, is that all they are going for??? There are different types of love, I think that she loves him but it feels more of like the companionship type of love than the romantic type of love. However, NONE of us know that and only she would know that…

        • Fox says:

          He is rich, she gets married with him = gold digger.

          He is poor, she gets married with him = using him.

          He is a normal guy, she gets married with him = why don’t find a HK actor?

          Oh well. Life and love. Love for any reason is still love if they can stay with each others in the rest of their life.

    12. EkinFan says:

      damnit not again, it was supposed to be with me gigi and michelle….

    13. Meiyi says:

      Congratulations to both beautiful women!.(✿◠‿◠)❤•♫♪♪

    14. Funn Lim says:

      What is this man? 1 baby 1 house deal?

      • exoidus says:

        Hehe, yeah I read that Tom and Kate have a similar deal. In addition the time period of their marriage determines how much she will get in a divorce settlement.

    15. kk says:


    16. Bridget says:

      Congrats to Gigi and Michelle! Looks like the dragon year will be a big year for babies! Off the top of my head I can name several who have / will be giving birth this year: Andy Lau, Miriam Yeung, Shirley Yeung, Kelly Chen, Yoyo Chen, Sonija Kwok, and now these two ladies.

    17. sushiroll says:

      I doubt Gigi loves her husband. She only married him cause he agreed to take care of her brother financially.

      • Jenn says:

        Srly, no one knows what happened between them.

      • HeTieShou says:

        Well no one truly knows if she really “Loves” him or not. Only she would know that…

        • Fox says:

          Sometimes love can exist in the form of “Favour”

        • HeTieShou says:

          Well it will depend on how each person defines “love”… Love can mean something different to each individual… That is why is so hard to define “love”…

        • Fox says:

          So shouldn’t question about how she loves him. Just know that they are a happy family, tat’s all.

      • exoidus says:

        I suppose it’s not exactly passionate love in the equation, still gotta admire her for taking care of her little brother.

        Besides it doesn’t hurt that he loves her more and most importantly is loaded with cash.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I agree with you exoidus. I think that even if she does love him, it may not be the passionate type of love but a different kind of love….But like I have said, none of us know that and only she would know that..

    18. Addy says:

      Gigi looks so good for her age. Then again, being the wife of a rich husband does help.

    19. Jenn says:

      Gigi had always had good skin to begin with.

      • HeTieShou says:

        Have we ever seen her with bare skin??? We usually would see her all made up and stuff so not sure.. I remember once seeing some photos of her that people claimed had no make up on and her skin did not look that great at all…

        • Hannah says:

          ^ Really? I saw pictures, too, and her skin is flawless. Well, her brother is a dermatologist.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Oh yea, her brother was a dermatologist and plus, we wonder if she really had nothing on in those photos… Do you have the link to those photos?? THe ones that I saw did not look that great..

        • Fox says:

          I rmb I saw a picture of her without makeup and her skin looks very good.

        • Q says:

          Gigi without makeup? She probably looks better than a handful of actresses with makeup on, lol

        • HeTieShou says:

          I personally don’t think anyone has flawless skin, but her skin is probably pretty good looking. THe ones that I have seen that have good skin without make up are Ariel Lin, twins and some others. But I don’t remember anyone mentioning Gigi. However, I have a feeling she definately would look better than most actresses without make up.

        • Q says:

          ^ Odd. Gigi’s name always pops up when it comes to good skin. She’s definitely up there.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Do you have any photos of Gigi with no make up? I am really curious to see…. I guess I will try to google some to see.. It is true that I don’t see many mention Gigi when they talk about good skin. Strange…

    20. HeTieShou says:

      Congrats to them both!! I guess many want dragon babies. I don’t see what the big deal is if they are a dragon or not.

      • Fox says:

        What is the big deal of the hope of parents to have dragons babies? They find it is a big deal and they want to do this, it’s their belief. You don’t see the big deal but that dun mean other ppl can’t see it as a big deal, HTS.

        • HeTieShou says:

          I know that and 2 of my closest friends are dragons and one of them waited for this year to have her second baby just to have a dragon. She makes a big deal out of it like it would kill her and her husband if they did not get a dragon baby.

        • exoidus says:

          Now the supply of dragon babies have exploded which leads to depreciation of dragons :)

          So HTS your friend is a superstitious fanatic, hehe.

        • HeTieShou says:

          Yea, she is and so does her husband since they are both dragons. She always tells me that it is not a big deal to her but rather her husband’s family since they are very superstitious. However, I told her that I know many “dragons” who are not that successful or happy with their life and being a dragon was not a big deal. She went on and on giving examples of how the ones that she knew had a great life… Basically, being a dragon is way overrated…Look at Yammie Nam, she is a dragon but look at her life now??? Very sad…

        • Fox says:

          But they want! If you don’t want, you can give birth to your kids in any year but no dragon.

    21. ABC says:

      Huh? Gigi Lai had twins and is pregnant with her 2nd child?

    22. Lily Hui says:

      WOW these reporters must be fortune tellers…back then Gigi responded on her blog that she was not pregnant but want a another child regardless of the gender b/c she loves children…now today 4-5-12 she announced that the doctor confirmed that she is pregnant….ha ha congratulations

    23. Larry 3 says:

      Well, she now reveals, she having a baby again; and wow @ 40 years old.

    24. Cleo says:

      Wow, both of his wives have been Portuguese/Chinese hybrids. Why is his ex father in law is so angry at him when before his remarriage, the ex family only had nice things to say about Julian Hui.

    25. sheisnatureone says:

      she is the beautiful one i know of China and young forvere. She don’t age and looks so nature without plastic surgery. Women have been coping her look through plastic surgery.
