As TVB actress Janet Chow (周家蔚) has wished, her yet-to-be-born son will come into the world as a “Dragon Baby” next week – the last week of the 2012 Dragon Year in the Lunar calendar.

Next week, Janet will go into the hospital, accompanied by first-time father, Timmy Hung (洪天明) for a Cesarean operation to bring their son, Hung Dai Yan (洪大仁) into the world. Timmy had taken time off his work in China to come back to Hong Kong to accompany his wife. Soon after, he will have to rush back to China for another two months before he can see his family again. Fortunately, Timmy’s mother will be by Janet’s side to take care of both mother and son. Timmy wishes that once his current project is wrapped up, he will be able to spend more time in Hong Kong.

Speaking of his family’s plan to have one more girl in the family, Timmy is however, not looking forward to educating his children in Hong Kong. He said, “The education system in Hong Kong is troublesome. Even before a child is born, we have to find a school for them.” Stressing that parent-child communication is more important, both Janet and Timmy do not want their children to be stuck in playgroups without actually experiencing a proper childhood. Instead, they want to be hands-on parents teaching their children the values of filial piety.

Spending most of his own childhood in filming studios where his father Sammo Hung (洪金寶) works, Timmy does not wish the same for his son. He wants to be a participative father who gets to see his son grow up. Though he picked up a skill or two from his time spent at the studios learning martial arts from the instructors when his father was not around, he said, “I grew up in the filming studio because that was where my father worked but I really don’t want my son to grow up like this.”

Glowing Mother-To-Be

Several days earlier, Janet was at the photography studio taking prenatal photographs for the second time. With only a black cloth wrapped around her bosom, Janet exuded a pregnant woman’s sexiness with her 42 inches belly revealed. Mid-way through the photo shoot, Janet playfully suggested Timmy to carry her. Timmy turned down that request but removed his shirt to join in the photo shoot, much to Janet’s delight.

Janet glowed when she spoke of her prenatal photo keepsake album. With the studio’s help, she has created an album chronicling her pregnancy – from the 4D sonograms to her own maternity photographs. She proudly declared she will be sharing the album with guests at her son’s 100th day celebration.

2013 Snake Babies

Timmy and Janet’s son will only be the first of several children born to Hong Kong celebrities in 2013. In the months to come, expect to see the birth of the children of these celebrity mothers:

Angela Tong – After dating for 6 years, Angela Tong (湯盈盈) announced her pregnancy and plans to wed Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂) at the same time last August. The couple had a memorable wedding ceremony at Hong Kong’s Ocean Park with panda witnesses who share the same name and a star-studded wedding celebration in November. Angela’s baby is due in March.

Lisa S. –  Since getting married in South Africa in 2010, Lisa S. and Daniel Wu (吳彥祖) hoped to start their own family. The couple’s wish finally came true and they are expecting their daughter in June.

Ada Choi – Following the birth of their daughter in 2011, Ada Choi (蔡少芬) and Max Zhang (張晉) are expecting their second baby due in June.

Karena Lam – Award-winning film actress, Karena Lam (林嘉欣) has prioritized family over her acting career since getting married in 2010. She is ready to have her second baby, which is due in July.

      Yeah, you’re absolutely right. Does the general public really care about this couple’s pregnancy and the pics? I mean first of all, Tim’s only a 2nd tier entertainer irregardless of his father Sammo’s status so he really isn’t a high-profile guy. Nor is his 2nd tier entertainer wife………..now for these second-tier couple to even release such gross pics makes me even wonder more about how low people in the entertainment industry will stoop just to get some free publicity…………

        You are a disgrace to the human race. Ive read atrocious comments from many people on this website but as of 2013, youre the top one for being ill mannered and I am sorry for your parents to have bore you as an offspring. Despicable.

        He’s got a point though. Photos like these is just attention-whoring. If they’re really sentimental, stuff like this DOES NOT need to be shared to the world.

        Unless it’s an amateur-shot sex video.

        Oh baby.

        I agree. Even if they were top of the line (super popular) actor/actress/singer/celebrity, these kind of pictures are TMI.

      I think it’s the same thing along the lines of celebrities taking nude photos to show their kids in the future…
      I wouldn’t want to do that of course.

    Goddamnit why do they do this.

    I feel that this will somehow get back to the kid like 10 years down the road when their friends knows how to use “the google”.

    • Cherry replied:

      There’s nothing wrong with their kid finding this. There isn’t anything disgusting about the photos, but they’re rather beautiful. I’d rather find photos like this compared to videos of the birth (like most parents keep).

      I’d be pretty embarrassed if my friends printed a pic out of my half-naked pregnant mum and showed it to me at school or something. And they’d point at her stomach and be like “haha, it’s you!”

        First of all, a “friend” wouldn’t do that knowing they would hurt your feelings. Second, Janet Chow is a celebrity.

    It is okay to take this type of photos for memories, but I don’t think they should release it to the public.

    Perhaps the young generation likes to do it now.

      Um, you must not be very in tune with Chinese culture but it’s a tradition in Chinese culture and very common to celebrate the baby’s 100 day anniversary. It’s called 百日宴. It’s just how Westerners celebrate a baby’s first birthday.

      And it’s also said in Hong Kong/ Chinese culture that when a baby hits 100 days- they’ll stop crying and stuff. So yeah.

    A lot of people take maternity photos these days. A few of my friends did take it and one of my ex-colloge friend is a professional photographer in this business, and the parents are not shy in sharing the pics of Facebook either.

    I don’t see anything wrong. It’s beautiful.

    There’s X icon on top right of internet browser, and no one is forcing you to click and share those photos.

    She’s HUGE. Is it because she’s small in real life? But she doesn’t look petite next to her husband. Is she carrying twins? or mini Sammo Hung?

    I saw my friend’s sis in law two weeks before she delivered, and I don’t remember her being this big. And her baby is big enough to abandon natural birth in favour of c-section after 18 hours of labor!

    Pregnancy is a happy thing. We have probably seen a few of these photos here but this one is really gross >_<. Maybe is the camera angle or belly button or becoz of the size! Athena Chu's one is nicer.

    There’s nothing wrong with taking maternity photos. They’re quite beautiful and memorable. Personally, I wouldn’t be one bit embarassed if my friend saw a photo of my mom pregnant with me. I wish she did so I could see what she looked like!!

    Snake babies… wow, so many already, and I’m sure more will come. I personally know 5 friends going to have snake babies. Oh, and don’t forget prince William & Kate…

    Yes, of course pregnancy is something to be celebrated but such photos are in my opinion not for publuc consumption. Granted it is very much the “in” thing to do these days especially for western entertainers. I am sorry but I just dont find photos of this kind beautiful to see at all.

      I’m not for public sharing of such pictures either, but whatever rock their boat. Was Demi Moore the first celebrity to publicize and set such trend with her nude pregnant pictures?

        Demi Moore was the first to expose her pregnant belly on the cover of Variety Magazine in the 80’s. Chinese actresses are now copying.

        @msxie so all these chinese actresses are looking at the exact copy of the variety magazine from the 80s with demi moore on it before taking the pictures?

    who is the 1st celebrity release this kind of picture , is it demi moore?. When you see one or two, it’s kind of artistic and all. But after you see all of the celebrity release their pregnancy pictures , it’s kinda turn tacky now. Not a really good picture, it’s a bit scary looking i would say. The belly already too big. Look nicer when you took it around 7 months. 9 Months look er….

    I agree with Ita’s comment. This pregnancy photo is not new at all. The worst scenario is when all celebrities in the world will have their pregnancy photo display unto the public.

    There have been other celebreties showing off their bellies but this time, I don’t think that those photos shown above are pretty. But if the parents are happy with this I don’t think it’s embarrassing. If the kid is going into puberty everything his parents did or say is embarrassing.
