Isabella Leong’s Son Turns 10
In April 2009, when Isabella Leong (梁洛施) was only 21 years old, she gave birth to her eldest son Ethan, her first child with businessman Richard Li (李澤楷). Now, Ethan has turned 10 years old.
It really felt like it was just yesterday when Isabella announced her sudden hiatus and pregnancy with the businessman, who was 22 years her senior. Although the couple never officially married, they stayed together for four years. After Ethan, Isabella and Richard welcomed their younger sons, twins, in June 2010.
And although the couple are no longer together, they make an effort to stay together for the sake of their kids.
“And just like that, ten years has past,” wrote Isabella on Weibo last Friday. “I specifically chose this photo to share with everyone. At the time, Ethan was still only a couple months old. His grandmother held him, while I was by his side. At the time, Ethan resembled me a lot, and also his father. He has turned ten years old this year, and I can no longer pick him up like I used to. My mother would always joke to me that he’ll soon turn 18 years old, get a girlfriend, and won’t care about me anymore. Cherish the time with your son now, haha! The past 10 years hasn’t been easy. I am thankful for my mother’s selfless love. She didn’t understand a word of English, but she was still willing to move to Canada to take care of my children. Ethan, happy birthday. Your mother’s only wish is for you to live comfortably, peacefully, and healthily grow. That is enough!”
According to reports, Isabella would bring her sons back to Hong Kong every year to see their grandfather, the business magnate Li Ka-shing (李嘉誠). Last year, when Isabella made her decision to permanently return to Hong Kong, Li Ka-shing allegedly enrolled his grandchildren to “Hong Kong’s most expensive school.” As one of the heirs to the Li business empire, great things may come for Ethan.
