Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau has denied that he and his wife Carol Choo consulted a well-known Chinese physician regarding her pregnancy.
According to Hong Kong magazine Sudden Weekly, the Heavenly King allegedly brought his wife to see Chinese physician Ma Ching Ki 6 months ago. It claimed that two months later, Ms Choo became pregnant, and is now supposedly 15 weeks along.
TVB News World writes that due to the circumstances of the birth of their first baby, who was born prematurely and weighed in at only 2,450 grams, Lau continued to consult with the physician.
The 90-year-old Ma, who has been in the trade for 90 years, learned acupuncture from nuns when she was young, reports entertainment site Lollipop. She also underwent medical training from four doctors in China before getting a decree as a medical doctor in the USA.
Other Hong Kong stars who are reported to be her patients include Tony Leung Chiu Wai, Carina Lau, Chow Yun Fat and Jackey Cheung.
On the Laus' first visit, TVB News World quotes the physician as saying: "Not that it will be successful, but must relax and let nature take its own course, the chances will be higher."
Choo has been photographed visiting a physician in Causeway Bay in Hong Kong in August this year.
In the Sudden Weekly article, it says Ma admitted to its reporter that Ms Choo had indeed visited her, saying: ""Small issue, artist is also a human."
She later reportedly said: "A lot of artists wife visited me."
However, when the actor was interviewed in September, he denied that he will become a father again, saying: "I told you before that I'm not, sorry."
When asked about the visits to the physician, he reportedly said: "I'm not talking about this, sorry."
His management company later said: "Thanks for your concern, really there's no such thing."
