AFTER marrying drummer Lai Man Wang in October, Hong Kong actress-turned-singer Jacqueline Wong plans to have a baby, reported Sin Chew Daily.

The one-time leading lady of TVB was sidelined after she was caught kissing Cantopop star Andy Hui – the husband of singer-actress Sammi Cheng – in the backseat of a taxi in 2019.

“I am 34 and no longer young. I want to have a baby soon.

“We both like children and plan to take care of them ourselves without hiring helpers,” said Wong, who married Lai, 49, a member of the Cantopop group Rubber Band, after a three-year courtship.

Owing to past events, she said she was worried when meeting Lai’s parents.

“I more or less expected that some people would look at me differently. But it didn’t happen at all. They are such a lovely, good family. I thanked them at my wedding for not having any prejudice against me,” she added.

When the scandal erupted in 2019, Wong was dating one of TVB’s hottest actors, Kenneth Ma.

The expose hogged the headlines in Hong Kong for months and caused Wong’s career to nosedive.

Wong has since made the transition to music.

Earlier this month, Ma, 49, wed actress Roxanne Tong, 36, in a lavish but intimate reception in Koh Samui, Thailand.

Only 80 close family members and friends were invited to the bash.

> A kissing scene in The Goldfinger between Tony Leung Chiu-wai and his co-star Charlene Choi is described as “not intense enough” by none other than the Hong Kong superstar’s wife Carina Lau, China Press reported.

Choi said Lau had made the remarks after watching the film.

The actress reportedly commented that Choi, who is 20 years younger than Leung, could have done better by kissing her husband more passionately.

Also starring alongside Leung, who made history by being the first Chinese actor to receive the Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award at this year’s Venice Film Festival, is Andy Lau.

The production reunited the two showbiz titans for the first time since their hit movie Infernal Affairs 21 years ago.

The Goldfinger is set to hit the screens in Malaysia on Dec 30.

The star-studded cast also features Simon Yam, Alex Fong, Philip Keung, Chin Ka Lok, Carlos Chan, Catherine Chau, Michael Ning and Tai Bo.

The movie is based on financial fraud that happened in Hong Kong in the 1980s.
