Benjamin Yuen Eager to Be a Dad

Getting married last November, Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) and Bowie Cheung (張寶兒) are trying for a baby.

As Bowie comes from a wealthy family, Benjamin has faced pressure to prove himself. Bowie’s father, Cheung Wong Wong (張煌煌), who made his fortune through his intimate apparel business, had gifted the couple $40 million Hong Kong dollars as down payment for their home. Facing the gossip that he is a “Soft Rice King,” Benjamin once boldly retorted, “I don’t need to pay the mortgage on the house?” Benjamin also stressed that he will work extra hard so that his salary can support both of them after marriage.

Since Benjamin is the only child in his family, he has a bit of pressure as well. While Bowie’s father is also said to want grandchildren, Benjamin will respect Bowie’s decision on baby planning, especially since she enjoys working and he does not want to affect her career plans.

However, Benjamin realizes that preparing for a baby takes time. He has been priming his body by eating plenty of oysters at a recent dinner with Bowie.

The actor has also been consulting a lot of parents in the entertainment industry, and hopes to learn a thing or two on having children. Many people recommended that Benjamin consult with Nancy Sit (薛家燕) and Kelly Chan (陳慧琳) and learn their “baby making secrets.”
