Athena Chu 2 Months Pregnant With Paul Wong’s Baby; Couple Rushes Wedding

Beyond member, Paul Wong (黄贯中), was photographed  accompanying his girlfriend, Athena Chu (朱茵), for a gynecological checkup. From the photo, Athena was dressed in a bulky sweatshirt, in which she sported a belly protrusion, sparking pregnancy rumors! Perhaps the couple also intended to hold a quick wedding.

The public often regarded 40-year-old sexy actress, Athena Chu, as being more well off than 47-year-old “poor band boy” Paul Wong. The rumors were proved to be incorrect, as it was discovered that Paul in fact possessed modest wealth. The couple have been dating for 13 years. Paul often noted that he was ready to get married at any time, while Athena said that she lacked the urge to get married. Observing her apparent pregnancy, perhaps Athena finally possessed that urge to get married!

Recently, Paul experienced renewed popularity as result of singing the theme song for TVB hit series, When Heaven Burns <天与地>. Paul performed at various music events. Despite his music schedule, Paul was spotted accompanying Athena on a visit to a famous traditional herbalist, who helped women achieve balance during pregnancy and provided postpartum care.

While Athena had her medical consultation, Paul chatted with the clinical staff.  Paul browsed through the books on the bookshelf, which ranged in subjects such as pregnancy and childcare. Despite living for nearly half a century, Paul will have to learn the basics in taking care of a baby!

Spending an hour in the clinic, Athena and Paul left with a pack of Chinese herbs with smiles on their faces. Afterward, the pair went to a nearby pet store to buy dog food.

Prior to dating Paul Wong, Athena had dated Stephen Chow (周星驰) after filming Fight Back to School <逃学威龙>. In a 2009 interview, Athena mentioned that her ex-boyfriend had cheated in their relationship, in which she caught him with another woman in bed! Athena refused to bring up Stephen’s name in conversations, while professing that she returned all the gifts he had given her while dating.

 

Excerpt from 21CN.com

Jayne: Athena looks very pregnant in the photo; maybe she is more advanced than the suggested 2 months? Athena’s attire reminded me of Shirley Yeung’s earlier pregnant photo in Los Angeles; same kind of down coat, sweatshirt and jeans.

    I’m suprised that he’s not rich, Beyond is one of the most successful band in the 90s.

      I agree and maybe he overspent and did not save up much. American celebs are way richer but yet all of their money just disappears to the point that some even end up applying for foodstamps…

      I am glad too but there are others that are around her age and have kids too. Esther Kwan had her daughter at 40 and she’s fine. It just depends on the person and not always the age…

        40 year olds here in USA is no problem.
        My sister in law is a nurse, and she in the hospital work know a woman who is age 50 give birth.
        I don’t know other countries, but here in America, have kids at age 40 is not strange.

        It also depends on if the child is their first child or not too since my mom had me, my 6th older brother and my little brother after 35 and we are fine. My mom had my little brother at 42 and he is fine… It just depends.

    Athena is pretty.
    The couple have been together for quite long, should have gotten married long ago.

    • HeTieShou replied:

      I agree that they should have been married years ago. I find it sad that many couples just date for years and years without getting married and feel that they are fine that way. I personally don’t think so because if you really love someone and want to be with them for the rest of your life, then why don’t you just marry them?? I find it sad that many don’t take marriage as seriously as they used to and instead have these shot gun weddings just because the girl is pregnant…But anyways, wish them the best and hope that they will announce the good news to everyone when the time is right.

        Agreed. Its one thing to say you don’t believe or want to get married but when pregnancy is involved, they immediately get married? Very contradictory.

      • Funn Lim replied:

        Not contradictory at all. Nobody wants their child to be a bastard, especially not an Asian.

    I’m so happy for them. I love Athena. Such a great actress and so appealing to the eyes. Maybe they’ll get married… maybe not. I don’t care either way. The fact that they have been together for 13 years proves how committed they are to each other. And that’s more important than a piece of legal document.

    What is it with celebrities getting knocked up & rushing to get married? It seems like a trend these days, if you don’t get knocked up you’re old fashioned? Anyways, congratulations to the couple!!!

      She is bisexual?

      I love her in old TVB series and Stephen Chow’s movie. Really pretty face, full of energy. Then I rarely saw her.

      That is fans’ dreaming. She acted in a lesbian movie with Monica Chen but as far as I know, neither is lesbian or bisexual.

    It’s interesting that many couples have been dating for years and didn’t plan to get married. But, when the lady is with child, they will get married.

    It seems that in Chinese society, no matter how modern the couple are, when it comes to the child, they will want the child to be legitimate. I mean, they can have pre-marital sex, live together before marriage. They feel it’s no problem not signing the cert. But, when the woman is pregnant the couple will get married. There’re very few like Sandra and husband who remain unmarried but have a daughter.

    I wonder if western couple is also the same.

      @ Kidd
      .
      The marriage is not so much for the couple’s sake but more so for the child. Reminds of what Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie said when they were questioned about marriage. To them, creating a family together is more of a commitment than a marriage license. However, now that their kids are older, they start asking question and it’s confusing for them that parents are not married.
      So, I think even with couples who couldn’t careless about being married, they would do it because it is important to their child/ren … also less confusing for them.

      Sandra Ng issit? Not married?! Maybe they’re except she doesn’t talk about it? Western couple is not so hung up about legitimacy. Asians do. After all neighbours do talk and poor child may come home and ask what is bastard and all that stuff.

    • sandcherry replied:

      How can you be sure that Sandra Ng and Chan Hor-Sang remain unmarried but have a daughter? They could have got married outside of Hong Kong. I think Sandra just pretends that she’s still single and attractive. I doubt this is true though.

      • Kidd replied:

        I think Sandra or her husband has said before that Chan Hor Sang does not believe in getting a marriage cert. That’s why they remain unmarried. They already has a daughter and act practically like a married couple. There’s no reason for Sandra to pretend that she’s single.

      • HeTieShou replied:

        I don’t understand why people don’t want to get married?? IF they love each other and want to spend the rest of their lives together, then why not make it official? I think if they don’t, then something is really wrong… Without that marriage certificate, they can just walk out the door without having to worry about the processes of a divorce…

    The photo doesn’t really make her look pregnant. Seems like a bad angle as I know jumpers can give you that weird belly look.

    I wonder why they would say 2 months pregnant when they obviously wanted to show the baby bump picture…
