Andy Lau Sends 3 Bodyguards to Daughter’s School Event

The 57-year-old Andy Lau (劉德華) and his 52-year-old wife Carol Chu (朱麗倩) are known to be loving parents to their seven-year-old daughter Hanna Lau (劉向蕙), and it’s easy to tell just by looking at their attendance record at her school events. Even when the “Heavenly King” is unable to participate, he makes sure his wife is attending and sends bodyguards to ensure his family’s privacy and safety – like he did during Hanna’s school’s sports event a few days ago.

Since last September, Hanna has been attending a famous international school on Hong Kong Island, which is known for prioritizing the development of students’ physical fitness and personality over academic performance. Its annual sports event was held at the Hong Kong University’s Sports Centre in Pok Fu Lam recently and Hanna naturally participated for the first time. Although Andy was unable to be there in person, the doting husband and father arranged three bodyguards to follow Carol to the event.

At about 9 a.m., two bodyguards escorted Carol to the Sports Centre. While the event was taking place, the two men stayed outside the venue and checked the surrounding area from time to time to ensure Hanna was not being secretly filmed. There was another bodyguard inside the venue who followed the Lau family closely. Every time Hanna went on the field to participate in an event, the bald-headed guard would be by her side.

Hanna Resembles Her Father

Hanna grew visibly taller since last December when she was last seen supporting Andy at his concert at the Hong Kong Coliseum. With her long hair pulled back into a ponytail, it was easy to see she had big eyes and a high nose – of which she inherited her dad’s signature “hawk nose.” Not only is she pretty, but she was also quite lively. The child was able to run very fast with her long legs and showed compatibility with her teammates. Full of sports cells, Hanna’s sportsmanship and physical strength is better than most children her age.

Perhaps, her sports skills are all thanks to Andy’s cultivation. He previously shared his childrearing tips with the public and said he believes parents should let their children participate in competitive games and let them understand that “there are losses, highs and lows.” Moreover, he rarely lets Hanna get her hands on electronic products as he prefers her to run around at home or jump on the trampoline.

  1. He’s got plenty of money so of course he can hired as many security guards as he wants. Hannah grew up very fast they should say she’s Carol mini me.

  2. If I were Hanna, I would not enjoy having 3 bodyguards around me all the time. Hanna will never have a normal childhood life.

    Don’t understand why Andy Lau had always to take some extra safety measures for his family. Are they that unique and precious that they cannot be exposed to the public? It is weird and funny to me!

      Hmmm…to prevent from being bothered by the media and most importantly, kidnapping. Although Andy is not super wealthy, kidnappers can still threaten him HK $1 million to $1 billion, which is a lot of money to me. He is just trying to protect his family, for the worst case scenerio. Since he is famous, everyone knows he has some money and loves his family. We should be more understanding than judging him for protecting his family.

        There are just too many billionaires’ children around in Hong Kong. Personally I don’t believe that it is the best way to protect their family members in the public.

      2. @orchid123
        But there aren’t many easy target like Andy Lau, except other rich celebrities with young kids. Every thief can easily find out where his family lives and goes to school.
        Of course you don’t think like Andy because you are in a very different stage of life, different age gap, different career and different living style.

        It’s one thing protecting your daughter discreetly by hiring bodyguards but it’s a nuisance if it affects others around her daughter. It’s quite obvious that the bodyguard is disturbing other children by going within millimetres of them. Why should we be understanding? He only has his own interests in mind and not bothered at all about others. His daughter is not the only child to consider…

  3. “Every time Hanna went on the field to participate in an event, the bald-headed guard would be by her side”

    Growing up, Hanna would probably have gotten used to many bodyguards around her, but I am sure her teachers and schoolmates/classmates would be uncomfortable with the bodyguards around all the time.

      Yeh. It’s fine if the bodyguards are around but not visible to everyone. If they are in the face of others all the time then they are disturbing others…

    No way the bodyguards can be inside classroom everyday. I guess one body guard will wait for her outside of the building when she leaves school.
