Actress Charlie Young to welcome Rooster baby

It will be a Year of the Rooster baby for Hong Kong actress Charlie Young.

Young, 42, is five months' pregnant and awaiting birth in Singapore, her manager confirmed to reporters on Monday.

The gender of the baby, her first child with Singaporean Khoo Shao Tze, was not revealed.

The news came after Young was pictured on her Weibo page covering her tummy with a cushion.

FRIENDS

Singer Gigi Leung - holding her daughter Sofia - and actress Lee Sinje were also in the photo.

The two friends had travelled to Singapore to usher in the New Year with Young.

Taiwan-born Young, star of 1994's The Lovers, married Khoo in a celebrity-filled wedding here in November 2013 after a courtship of 20 years.

"Charlie is well. She is a happy mother-to-be," Leung was quoted as saying by newspaper Apple Daily.

In another picture on Lee's Facebook page, the three are seen celebrating the New Year with Khoo, Leung's husband Sergio Crespo Gutes, and Lee's husband, director Oxide Pang. - THE STRAITS TIMES
