MALAYSIA - Miss Chinese Cosmo 2004 Carrie Lee Sze Kei has revealed that her first daughter was born out of wedlock seven years ago.
Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported that Lee, who won the beauty pageant when she was 19, had kept the birth a secret.
"Her father is my ex-boyfriend. Even though he proposed to me when I got pregnant, I did not accept the proposal. Instead, I went overseas to work.
"I was still young. I was not prepared for marriage. Luckily, my family was very understanding," Lee said in an interview with 988 radio station on Thursday.
The 29-year-old celebrity from Kuala Lumpur said she went to Hong Kong to pursue her career after giving birth in 2007.
In 2011, Lee married her Hong Kong boyfriend Stephen Chu when he popped the question for the third time.
However, Lee admitted that she had often quarrelled with Chu and that they even signed a divorce agreement at one time.
"I found out I was pregnant with our second child then. We talked it over and we realised that we still love each other.
