Leon Lai’s Daughter Looks Just Like His Mini Version

The 53-year-old has been keeping to his daughter’s bedtime.

Recently, the Hong Kong press captured a close-up photo of Leon Lai’s (黎明) daughter, who reportedly looks exactly like him during his youth.

Turning his focus to family life in recently years, Leon and his female assistant Chan Wing Yee (陳泳儀) welcomed their daughter two years ago, and since then Leon actively reduced his work appearances to be with his daughter throughout her developmental milestones. While she had adorable fat cheeks as a newborn, the now 1-year-old is a pretty little girl with well-defined double eyelids, and greatly resembles Leon during his schooling days.

Joking that he has become a “sleep companion specialist,” Leon would wake up early every morning and go to bed at his daughter’s bedtime at 10:30 p.m. Like Aaron Kwok (郭富城), Leon’s lifestyle also saw a great transformation since his daughter was born as he now stays home a lot more often.

According to reports, Leon’s family of three lives at Sheung Yue River’s St. Andrews Place, a residence he had bought for $48 million Hong Kong dollars back in 2007. The 600-square-meter (approximately 6500-square-foot) estate is estimated to be worth about HKD$70 million now, and is more than spacious enough for his daughter to invite friends over for playtime.

    It’s hard to tell who she really looks like her mom or dad when she’s half way turning away and plus the picture are too blurry. I don’t think Leon ever announced his daughter name at all it’s always said daughter. Maybe he wants to keep it private just like Jackson Lai wife her name never being mentioned also. Even though Aaron Kwok are a very private when it comes to his two daughters but he didn’t kept his two daughters name in secretly he announced the day they were born. Same as Andy Lau.

    I happened to see her full face in one of the tabloids and she’s so cute, with monolid eyes just like Leon’s.

    It’s funny how all the 四大天王only have daughters, so far.

    Also, just recently watched Leon’s old TVB series. I forgot how handsome he was back in the 90s.

      @pompidur He has probably aged the mostod the four heavenly kings, although he is youngest I think.

        @megamiaow yeah, I was actually surprised when I found out his age. Always thought Aaron was the youngest, he maintains his youthful look really well.

      Oh yes, they all have daughters… I wonder if they will have a son soon? But some have stopped having kids already.

      I just rewatched Bing Kuen and Leon was very handsome and Maggie Siu was beautiful too. Sadly Leon did not age well.

        @hetieshou I re-watched Breaking Point and Legendary Rangers recently. Leon was so boyishly charming back then. I think he started losing his looks when he reached his 40s. All those relationship problems didn’t help lol

        I never watched those 2 series as I was not into modern series back then. Would you recommend them? Leon was very charming and handsome when young. I just find it sad that he did not age well. Yes, those relationship problems and a failed marriage did not help either.

        @hetieshou I prefer Breaking Point. It was probably one of my fav TVB series back then. Leon and Kathy Chow had really good chemistry. Deric, perfect in his villainous role, as always. But it’s a pretty long series.

        Didn’t really like Legendary Ranger theme.

        Ok thanks for the recommendations. I will give Breaking Point a try. How long is it? Does it get draggy?

      • pompidur replied:

        @hetieshou It’s 40 episodes I think. Can be draggy at times, especially the first half. It gets interesting when Deric turns into a villain.

        There were a lot of kelefes from familiar faces, Wayne Lai, Gordon Lam etc. And Power Chan was great as Leon’s ‘brother’.

        Also, I love the nostalgic feelings of those 90s Cantopop in that series

        @pompidur
        Oh ok, 40 eps is not too bad. I thought it was 60 eps or more. Deric is good at playing villain roles. Yes, I was watching some old 80s series and saw Wayne,Frankie ams many other green leaf actors when they were still playing extras and minor characters.

        I am more of an 80s child but love the 90s as those were my teenage years. Boy, I feel so old…

        @megamiaow I wasn’t really into LR’s story. Funny thing was I recently saw a promotion trailer of LR where the leading actress was Kathy Chow, but later on TVB substitute it to Michelle Reis, because of the affair rumours between Leon & Kathy and Leon’s fans not liking Kathy.

        @m0m0 Yep, Leon was proned to being rumoured with co-stars back then? Lol

        I just found out about the Kathy Chow thing too, recently. But supposedly he was the third person in Kathy-Ray Lui marriage? Though some fans said Kathy and Ray were already separated by then. But after the Breaking Point and that weird trailer of Legendary Rangers, I don’t think Leon and Kathy had been paired up again. I am guessing that relationship might be damaging for Leon’s new found fame at the time?

        @pompidur The Breaking Point is one of my favorite series too….watched it so many times that I can practically recite all the dialogue, lol (though I guess the same can be said of most of the 80s / early 90s TVB series, which I constantly rewatch). TBP wasn’t the only series that Leon and Kathy collaborated in (their other most famous collaboration was in Cherished Moments in 1989, which of course was before TBP), but it was the series that put the 2 of them on the map as an “onscreen couple”…it’s because of the huge popularity of that series and their pairing that they made the sales presentation trailer for Legendary Ranger feature the two of them initially….but yea, the rumors about them being involved offscreen too were definitely hot and heavy back then (which was a problem because Kathy was still with Ray Lui at the time supposedly…the whole marriage fiasco thing came out later)….though neither of them ever admitted it outright, the rumors of Leon and Kathy being together were believable enough (plus Leon’s fans back then were known for being more vocal than most) that TVB was forced to switch out the female lead to Michelle Reis (which, ironically, Leon ended up having rumors with as well – basically he was linked to almost every co-star he filmed with back then, whether TV series or movies, lol). I actually wasn’t a fan of Legendary Ranger or the series that Leon filmed after that one….I think his best work in terms of TV series was The Breaking Point and all the series he filmed before that one (in the late 80s/early 90s)….but a huge part of why I think so is because of the great casts in those series, which in a way, elevated Leon as well (because to be honest, his acting wasn’t really that great back then)….in comparisons, Legendary Ranger cast was meh…it had too much of the “idol series” vibe for my liking (that’s just me of course….most people probably feel differently)….

        Thanks for the info and I should give the Breaking Point a chance. How long is it? Does it get draggy and have a good ending? I do not mean happy ending but an ending that makes sense.

      • llwy12 replied:

        @hetieshou Depends on what you define as long. The Breaking Point is 40 episodes, which isn’t long by “old” standards (most of the “big” series back then were 40 eps or more). I don’t feel it’s draggy, but not sure if my opinion counts, since I’ve seen it so many times. As for the ending..well, depends on perspective…I’ve personally always hated the ending to the series, but then again, I hate the endings to most TVB series. I remember there was a “fan-fic” ending that someone wrote in a magazine back then that’s actually closer to what I would’ve wanted the ending, but oh well. I read an interview that the series’ producer Mui Siu Ching did years later where she talked about the ending and explained why they did it that way…it made sense, but I still didn’t like it.

        @llwy12
        Ok 40 eps is not bad… I thought it was a lot longer than that. I guess I have to watch it to see for myself. My late mom liked complete endings and she hated open endings. Like the ending in Looking Back in Anger was an open ending which she hated. As long as the ending makes sense, I do not mind open endings.

        @hetieshou I was very upset at the ending of Looking Back in Anger. I think the producer said in an interview that the lady who walked into the church was his sister because she wanted him to give up & go home. Very sad because i was hoping for a happy ending, but i mean overall the drama is very sad and dark so i dont know why i expected a happy ending

        @luye
        Yes the ending was a bit disappointing. I actually did not expect a happy ending but I wished that it made more sense. I thought they would confirm that Carina’s character died or not. They only implied that she may have died and left us hanging. I think that was what made the rest of us wonder if it was her that walked in and not his sister. Yes, the producer did say that it was his sister as Carina’s character died in that accident already. It actually makes the most sense that it was his sister as she told her brother beforehand that she wanted him to give up and move on with his life. However, the one who filmed the scene was Carina but the character was Felix’s sister. People were all saying it was Carina’s character or her ghost as they assumed she died too. But if you do not want to get into supernatural stuff then saying it was his sister was the most logical. However, you truly wonder if the producer and director did that on purpose in order for us to ponder about the ending? Hey, if that was their goal, it worked!

        @llwy12 ah, interesting. I didn’t know about the Leon-Kathy thing until recently..if only we have internet back then lol

        I watched Cherished Moments too back then. I think Leon had really great chemistry with Kathy, which really helped with the Breaking Point popularity. Their acting I reckon were meh there. I actually thought the girl who acted as Leon’s sister was really good. Never seen her before or after TBP.

        Oh I never liked LR back then and after re-watching it, still didn’t like it.

        Also, about TBP, I read that they were supposed to film an ending in Taiwan, but never really gotten to it, because of conflicting schedules?

        @pompidur Agreed that Angela Yeung (who played Leon’s sister in TBP) was a good actress — she had both the looks and the talent…too bad her acting career was so short-lived. If I remember correctly, I think TBP was her second to last series….she retired from the industry 1-2 years later.

        Yea, that’s what I heard too about the ending, which is too bad because I didn’t like the ending and knowing it could’ve been done differently but wasn’t is frustrating.

        @llwy12 The Breaking Point has got to be my favorite drama of all times because of the chemistry with Leon and Kathy! I still shipped them till this day. Didn’t really like the ending so I never watched the ending.

        @pompidur Kathy and Leon first collaborated in Cherished Moments as a married couple. It’s a time travel drama. Rumours were both fell in love during that drama and Leon was pursuing Kathy when she was still married to Ray back then. After that they collaborated in Breaking Point again and that escalated the rumours as both Ray and Kathy broke up during that time. Leon has explained before in his famous metaphor that “people just assume when both a man and woman sits together to chat at a coffee shop and when the woman and her boyfriend has an argument with her boyfriend and breaks up, the man sitting with her would be blamed as the 3rd party”. And yeah Kathy was supposed to be the lead in Legendary Ranger because they were considered the golden onscreen couple at that time but unfortunately things didn’t turn out. I love their pairing. Many of Leon’s fans accepted Michelle better than Kathy just because she was married to Ray before. But in real life, it turns out Michelle has worse record compared to Kathy. She was the home wrecker material not Kathy. Lol
        But the one got hit real hard by Leon’s fans was Shu Qi. After being with him for years, she was never accepted by Leon’s fans and Leon’s dad. So they had to break up.

        @m0m0
        Yes he was which why I think Ray got angry and I heard even hit Leon. I think Leon was supposed to act in the Sword of Conquest with Kathy but he refused due to the incident with Ray. Therefore, Eddie Kwan took the role instead.

        @hetieshou To be honest, I never thought Ray and Kathy were a good match so not surprised it didn’t last. Most of the 80s couples I adored but they weren’t one of them…I just never got the vibe from them…it probably didn’t help that Ray was 10 years older than Kathy, whereas Leon was the same age as her and probably had more in common.

        I actually can’t imagine Leon in Swords of Conquest…Eddie was better fitted to that role (plus Eddie has more “costume drama” vibe than Leon does)…I’ve always felt that the 2 actors who are the least natural-looking in costume dramas are Leon and also Gallen Lo (purely my opinion)…so in a way, I guess it’s good that they didn’t do a whole lot of costume dramas back then (they did some, but majority were modern series).

        @llwy12
        I actually thought Ray and Kathy were fine and the age gap of 11 years is not too bad. My late parents always said that it is fine if the guy is older. I used to believe that until they said that even if the guy is 20 years older it is ok but not ok for a woman to be even a few years older. That is BS to me. I feel as long as the age gap is not ridiculously big whether older or younger then it should be ok as long as you are compatible, love each other,etc… Kevin Cheng is 22 years older than Grace Chan which is way too big of an age gap. Now,I wonder if they will last down the line. But anyways, yes Leon and Kathy seemed more compatible.

        I know what you mean and I found it a bit awkward when I first saw Leon in a costume series but got used it. Same with Gallen but got used to it as well. Yes, Eddie was good in Sword of Conquest but my family did not like him much. They said he was a bit off in his acting but I enjoyed his acting.

      @pompidur Yes, it’s interesting that all 4 Heavenly Kings had daughters, but what’s also interesting (to me at least) is that 3 of the 4 kings had their daughters when they were in their 50s. Jacky had his eldest daughter Zoe when he was 39 and his younger daughter 5 years later when he was 44….looking back now, that is definitely young compared to when the other 3 kings had their daughters, lol.

    Damn, age has not been kind to Leon. He’s aged the worst out of the 4 Heavenly Kings. Aaron, we all know about his crazy youthful looks. Jacky has aged very gracefully, and Andy, although he looks haggard at times, still can carry a commanding presence. Leon just looks like some random middle aged uncle lol.

    I was a huge fan of Leon when I was a young girl. He will always have a special spot in my fangirl heart =)

    That’s a terrible photo of Leon. He had gained a lot of weight, but has since lost a bit of that. I think he looks great for 53. It is unfair to expect celebrities to forever look like their 20 year old attractive self. I think Michael Miu is one of the few who looks great in his 50’s (although I think he’s had botox and possibly some PS =P).

    I think Leon looked good at Joey’s concert last year and was awesome seeing her fangirling over him. He’s still so charming and such a gentleman.
