Annie Man’s Daughter Will Have Short Legs

By on July 12, 2012 in Celebrity Babies, NEWS


Already in the last trimester of her first pregnancy, actress Annie Man (文頌嫻) is prepared to face the challenges of motherhood! The 35-year-old is currently 7 months pregnant with a baby girl, whom she has already named Jamie. Annie exclaimed that while she has no knowledge when it comes to child rearing, she is ready to step into her next stage in life.

Annie Man began her acting career in ATV in 1993. Within seven years, Annie became the company’s top leading actress and was one of the company’s most popular artists. In 1999, Annie joined TVB and was cast in the star-studded anniversary drama, The Legendary Four Aces <金裝四大才子>. Her well-received performance won her a leading role in the equally successful Colourful Life <錦繡良緣>, the comedy that inspired the critically acclaimed period sitcom, Virtues of Harmony <皆大歡喜>.

However, Annie’s career in TVB eventually turned stagnant. In 2005, she finally decided to leave the company. For the next few years, she filmed several dramas in mainland China, but they were all met with lukewarm responses. Since meeting her husband, 35-year-old businessman, Jason Lee (李梓慎) in 2008, Annie lessened her filming commitments, but did occasionally make guest appearances in variety shows and public events.

Sacrifices Honeymoon for Daughter

While preparing for their wedding, Annie discovered that she was 3 months pregnant. Her family suggested her to postpone the wedding until after giving birth to the baby, but the couple decided to hold the wedding as planned.

Annie said, “During those days I was like Sleeping Beauty; I always wanted to sleep. It was really stressful. Luckily, I had many good friends such as Sherming Yiu (姚樂怡) and Angela Tong (湯盈盈) helping me out. My husband handled most of the trivial things, such as making invitations and booking venues. I would also help out once in a while.”

Because of Annie’s pregnancy, their honeymoon destination was changed from Maldives to Singapore. “It is unfortunate,” said Annie. “After arriving in Singapore, my feet got really swollen! I could not even wear my shoes!” Singapore’s hot and humid weather almost got Annie sick. She added, “Singapore is also famous for eating crabs, but I cannot eat them [due to pregnancy].” Annie admitted that her trip to Singapore was neither relaxing nor fun, but she and her husband promised to make up for a better honeymoon at a later time.

Daughter Has Short Legs

Annie said that their daughter’s due date will be in August, while projecting the baby delivery costs to be approximately $100,000 HKD. Like many pregnant Hong Kong women, Annie chose to deliver the baby via Cesarean section. Annie explained that not only is she afraid of pain, her husband is also a believer in feng shui. Their feng shui master will determine an auspicious delivery date and a Chinese name for the baby.

The feng shui master also pointed out that Annie has a very high chance of getting pregnant again! Annie said Jason would love to have more children, but a daughter and son would be enough for her.

According to Annie’s 3D ultrasound results, her baby’s legs were developing shorter than usual. Her doctor assured Annie that the baby is in healthy condition. When discussing about methods of parenting, Annie said that originally she planned to use the “good guy, bad guy” roles in disciplining her daughter, but added that it will depend on how her daughter’s personality turns out to be. She affirmed that she will make sure that her daughter will not have “princess syndrome” and will teach her the values of independence and respect.

    I sense Annie’s wonder and eager anticipation of the birth of her baby!

    I laughed when I read that she was a “sleeping bride” and allowed her husband and friends to help plan the wedding. She appears to be easy-going and not easily stressed out.

      Yes, during the first trimester, the mom-to-be is always tired and wants to sleep all the time. It’s the hormones and also probably because the baby is forming this this time and so takes a lot of energy away from the mom.

    Short legs? Meaning dwarfism? Or just short legs? What does she expect? Supermodel long legs? Annie Man isn’t exactly tall, and I don’t suppose her husband is tall too.

      Yes, it’s a pity I think since women should experience natural childbirth as all the women before us have gone through the same. Why should we be any different unless it’s a matter of life and death for the unborn child then of course the only option is a c-section.

    I think the baby will turn out to be okay. I loved Annie on tv and it is also nice to hear about how she is currently doing. She sounds like she is well loved and happy. I hope that she and her husband will eventually get to go to Maldives, anyway.

    Congrats again to Annie and Jason! I think it is a bit silly to believe in Feng Shui or anything too much because you let it control you. I believe that you should let your baby come out naturally and not have a C section just to “pick” a certain time or date for birth. When you try to pick like that, is it even valid anymore?? I can totally imagine when you go to see a fortune teller/feng shui master and they ask for your time and date of birth, but also ask if you were born naturally or was it chosen by your parents due to a planned C-section??? I really wonder??

      Too many Chinese people believe in Fate and Feng Shui. It can be true though. Of course, a person wants to give the best to her child, and date and time of a birth can change a person’s fate according to Feng Shui.
