Although she will turn forty next year, Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) still has no plans to have children and does not seem too concerned about her ticking biological clock.

Charmaine attended good friend Janet Chow‘s (周家蔚) store opening on June 17. Janet, who won financial backing for her business via reality competition program I Am Boss <我要做老闆>, opened a children’s clothing and accessories shop THE 7TH DAY in busy and trendy Causeway Bay.

Celebrity mothers Angela Tong (湯盈盈) and Annie Man (文頌嫻) attended the event, along with popular local artistes Michael Tse (謝天華), Sherming Yiu (姚樂怡), and Toby Leung (梁靖琪). Janet’s husband Timmy Hung (洪天明) was also present, celebrating her major milestone along with their adorable son TJ (洪大仁).

Upon her arrival, Charmaine immediately went to TJ and gave him hugs and kisses. Despite being at ease with toddlers, Charmaine feels that she may not be able to handle all the stresses of motherhood. When asked if she has the urge to have children, Charmaine said that she had once experienced that feeling though the moment has passed. “When I first saw their cute kids I thought it would be nice to have one of my own. However, later on I saw that they had to feed the kids and could not sleep…. I thikn I prefer my current lifestyle.”

Even though parenthood seems daunting to Charmaine, she is not completely scared off and would be willing to consider becoming a mother. For now, she is perfectly content with her child-free life and can easily satisfy her maternal urges with occasional playtime with her friends’ children.

  1. Probably, she will not have in her future. I do not feel anything wrong with not having any children if her enjoyment is working.However, let’s face it – the face that she’s soon to be 40 kill many a few good things and brings a some bad things for pregnancy.

    At 39 yrs of age, saying you have no urge to have children is almost equivalent to saying you have no intention to have children. But oh wells, it’s her choice anyway.

    I think the urge has passed. She did once seem to want to marry and have children.

    The four on the right is always together. Is the girl on the right from a rich family?

      To Mike,
      You mean the furthest right? No, but the 3rd one from the right is a rich girl if I’m not wrong, her father was an ex-producer.

    Didn’t Karen Mok and yoyo mung said thing before? People will always change their mind so I won’t take those words seriously. Sometimes people say that either because they are single or because they can’t have children so people won’t bug them about it. Of cause, there are those who genuinely don’t want children

      exactly my point too! most of these late 30s-40s yo women in showbiz all say they don’t want kids, but many end up wanting them. they say they don’t want children as a deterrent so the rest of the world won’t pressure them about making babies or worse, pity that they can’t have any even when they want to.

        I think when everyone around you is getting married and/or having kids, you feel pressured to do the same. Didn’t that group of friends, Annie Man, Angela tong and Shermin Yiu all got married around the same time?

    Its silly to believe her. I mean, do you think she would announce to the world that she wants a kid badly? No one wants to look desperate. When she was younger, she still had options. Now that shes nearing 40, shes almost at the end of her rope. That doesnt mean she wants the world to know nor does it imply she wants every d.i.ck and john to think shes desperate enough to accept anything. That acts as a deterrent.

      Desperate?? Please!! Charmaine is talented and still looking hot and young for her age. I’m sure she has no problem finding a man to have children with. But if she’s not ready or doesn’t want children, that’s her choice. Women don’t need to be married to have children nowadays. Btw, marriage isn’t for everyone and so does motherhood.

        Talented? No. Still looking hot and young for her age? No. But i agree with parts starting from “But if she’s not ready…….”

        maybe you have an issue with the semantics of my point, but i don’t think most people would disagree with my view that IF she states she wants kids, she could be viewed as desperate. simply from the fact that she is nearing menopause and the chances of having healthy (if any) kids at all are slim.

        i’m not challenging her talent; i’m merely stating facts. you could see her as a hot, young-looking woman, but HKers see her through her age. it’s a harsh world.

        if, however, she doesn’t feel prepared enough and doesn’t want marriage or kids, then it’s a different story. but i REALLY don’t think that’s the case here. she’s always been a really family-oriented person.

        Lol: I believe she’s talented. And, from what I see, she’s still looking hot. Without talent or/and beauty, I doubt any ladies would last that long in showbiz.

        moncheri: I do have issue w/you implying women at 40 has no/little fertility chance n she might be desperate for men if she shows that she wants kids. You’re very narrow minded on this subject. There r so many women around the world giving birth at age 40+. With the advance medical technology we have nowadays, you don’t even need to have intercourse with a man to get pregnant. She still looks good, she has a successful career n she got money… You young gals might think it’s “end of the rope” for her, but I doubt young men out there think the same.

        FYI, I like her, but I’m not a die-hard fan n I’m not bias toward anyone. I’m a happy married woman n a happy mom.

        Hi Tayna,

        I’ve a feeling that Charmaine wants to get married, but finding a right person is not easy, even ordinary ppl like us. Let alone she’s a celebrities and she’s earning a lot. I know she mentioned that she doesnt mind if the guy makes less money than her, but still sometimes it’s still not easy. We’re talking about compatibility and chemistry not just the person’s look and the wealth, what about the person’s character etc etc. Anyhow, I hope she meets her mr right soon.

        Tayna: i do believe you’re missing the point. for someone who’s near 40, she still needs to find a suitable partner and then decide to have kids. how long do you think that takes? i’d say anything between 2-3 years. So by then she’s 42-43? Her time is ticking. And if she stated she wants kids, then that is a race with time. you’re right that technological advances these days make having children easier, but even technology can only do so much. many 40 year olds can’t conceive even with all the technology at their disposal. not to mention how costly it all is. my point being, yes, a woman in her 40s stating she wants kids will look a bit desperate because it’s not all that hopeful.

    Just lol-ed when i read that Timmy and Janet’s son is called Da Ren 大仁 which sounds like 大人 “your Honor”. So pompous……in the style of Michael Jackson who named his son Prince.

      大仁 and 大人 may sound the same, but the meaning is different. 仁 = benevolence

      A Chinese name like Da Ren is better than something like Power, Fruit, Demon, Jam, Coffee, Beaver among the myriads of weird English names in HK and Taiwan.

    Maybe bad translation, but i can’t believe a 40 yrs old would say such thing “When I first saw their cute kids I thought it would be nice to have one of my own. However, later on I saw that they had to feed the kids and could not sleep…. ” Anyone past 25 knows how hard motherhood is and the sacrifice they made for their children. I expect “feeding the kid and lack of sleep” comes from a teen not a grown woman

      I know lol. She is single now thats why she said that. My friend is 34 years old. She always said no kids for her in the past 6-7 years. Now she has been dating for a year and she has changed and said she might have 1 if her boyfriend really wants 1 lol. And the boyfriend is only 26 years old. NEVER says NEVER.

        My personal belief is this, if your friend wants children are not, it’s her choice and she has rights to change her mind. We made choices and later changed them, but a decision ‘influenced’ by others is a grossly mistake, especially one that involves bringing a life into the world. She should have kids IF she wants them, not because someone else wants them.

        I agree with you :-). But in a relationship there are 2 people so each person needs to compromise with each other as well.

      She has many exes in the industry. Benny Chan, Moses, Kevin and wonder why they got away. Maybe it’s her bad reputation for being flirtatious. LOL! 😀
