Is Gigi Lai Chasing for a Son?

When she was at the peak of her career, Gigi Lai (黎姿) announced her retirement from showbiz in 2008, after her marriage with businessman Patrick Ma (馬廷強). In March 2010, she gave birth to twin girls, Patricia and Gianna Ma, and in October 2013, she gave birth to her third daughter, Pegella Ma. While three young toddler children can be already too much the handle, 42-year-old Gigi reportedly wants to have more, as she is currently hoping for the arrival of a fourth child – a son.

A magazine reported earlier that Gigi had been seeing Dr. Clement Ho (何永超), who is well-known as the entertainment industry’s “go-to doctor” for famous pregnant celebrities. The report claimed that Gigi had received gonadotropin preparations, a fertility drug.

With three girls, it was said that Gigi always wanted a boy and had been planning for a fourth child for some time. Gigi was recently spotted eating an afternoon meal with her twin daughters and a close friend, looking much fuller than usual. She also wore a loose blouse, as if trying to hide a bulging belly. Gigi wore flats and walked carefully.

Since her retirement from acting, Gigi rarely made public appearances and dedicated most of her time in her children and cosmetics business. Her most recent public appearance was at the Young and Dangerous concert, a residency show featuring the film’s stars Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健), Jordan Chan(陳小春), Michael Tse (謝天華), Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂), and Jerry Lamb (林曉峰). Gigi herself starred in the original Young and Dangerous film series herself, as the girlfriend of Chan Ho Nam, portrayed by Ekin.

        If can afford it why not? Lots of women older still give birth to healthy babies. I know one who in her 20s gave birth to baby with health issues. Conclusion: depending on individual in knowing how to take care during gestation period. Not so much to do with age…!

          Anecdote != evidence. Advanced maternal age is very much associated with nondisjunction phenomena and perinatal complications like preeclampsia (FATAL if not treated), abnormal placental implantation (post partum hemorrhage is still the leading cause of maternal death worldwide), and prematurity . Advanced paternal age has its own set of issues but to negate the impact of age on one’s ability to successfully carry a healthy child to term is futile…. unless, of course, one has access to advanced reproductive technology as Gigi Lai obviously does. But for the average 40 year old woman who doesn’t, reproducing can be a dangerous enterprise. Knowing a friend of a friend who did so does not prove the science wrong – know that your friends and relatives simply beat the odds stacked against their favor.

        Liked someone said.. if she can afford it, why not?? Age is just a number as long as one is healthy and can take care of their body during pregnancy, it’s not a problem.

          Age is NOT just a number when it comes to pregnancy. Not even close.

          I support you, Lee. Age is NOT just a number when it comes to reproduction. I think it’s irresponsible to go for a fourth child at that she because the child can have problems not to mention it poses a huge RISK for the mother. What is something happens to Gigi during the process and her kids are left orphaned? Did anyone think about that?

          I think you over reacting. First of all, with these days health technology, a mother at age 42 died of giving birth is rarely, very rarely.
          Second of all, Gigi’s husband is a millionair, he have his good private doctor to take care of his wife pregnancy. I think last time she gave birth, he rent the whole hospital floor for his wife use only.
          And thirdly, her daughters won’t be orphans because they sill have their father. But we don’t need go this far, in 2013 mother died of give birth is very rare.

          It really varies from person to person. My mom had my younger brother at 42 and he is fine. It really varies.

        I think it is still okay as long as this is not her very first child.

      East Week again?

      Anyway, looks like the tabloids have their sights on Gigi again after her appearance at the Y&D reunion concert. Stuff like this helps me understand even more why many retired artists don’t like making public appearances, since they’re almost guaranteed to get ‘written up’ by the tabloids afterwards. Sad…

      Giving birth is always a huge risk.

      The husband must have treated her very good or she love him very much that she is willing to risk her life.

          Lol. How are you asking such a question??? There are sooooo many risks involving pregnancy, esp. with women who are older.

          It was true in old days. But with the advanced technology in medicine, the risk is very very low. Even if there is, doctors can detect it quite early and put a stop on pregnancy. All they need is to take a blood test during early pregnancy, or a needle into the fetus.

        • Primrose replied:

          Yes there are risks involved when the woman is older. But in general, do you often hear of women dying due to pregnancy and childbirth complications? And with medical advancement these days, the risks are minimized. And yes, with a simple test, you can check if your unborn child has Down Syndrome.

        Giving birth is always a big pain and a risk,but of course some are more at risk than others are. However, the rich and wealthy usually seem to have it better since they have the money to be in the VIP rooms with the best professionals and care. Money really talks…

          Very true! Though money cannot buy life, it does help a lot in almost everything.

        Her husband really loves her as is, but would love her even more if she did give him a son, her husband loves children so would not mind having another one. Having a boy would truly complete their family tree.
