Andy Lau Tak Wa after announcing to his fans "good news at home" on his official site over a month ago yesterday finally met the press in Hong Kong to promote A SIMPLE LIFE (TOH JEH). As for his wife's pregnancy status, Wa Jai was reluctant to reveal much and only admitted that his wife is four months pregnant. Yet his smile came from the heart, obviously Wa Jai as the soon to be father was both elated and excited. He admitted that he has been waiting for this moment for a long time.
Reporters immediately congratulated Wa Jai as soon as he appeared. He laughed in acceptance, "Thank you thank you!" Yet he honestly said that he did not want to say too much because this interview was for work. Later he again cited his golden phrase, "Be nice!" Reporters responded with Leon Lai Ming's golden phrase, "Let us be bad one more time." Wa Jai laughed and shook his head. He said, "Earlier when I said it it was three month, now it is four months. (The period is) over!" When asked whether his wife was pregnant, he laughed and said, "OK, OK, thank you everyone. (Are you excited?) OK! (Boy or Girl?) Thank you." Speaking of many friends' well wishes, he said that he received everyone's well wishes and thanked everyone. Has he communicated with Miriam Yeung Chin Wa? Wa Jai said no. Has he booked a bed? He said, "They know! I too know I have to get past this process (questions)."
When would Wa Jai stop working? He pointed out that later he will have to work on DWELLING IN THE FUCHUN MOUNTAIN until after the Lunar New Year. After he completed all contracted work he would stop. He would still work on Johnnie To Kei Fung's film because it would be shot in Hong Kong. Has he told Ah To when he would stop working? Wa Jai pointed out that this film would be shot in Hong Kong so it would be OK. Has he attended any parenting class? He said, "Thank you thank you, let's talk in private. (Have you bought any baby product?) Why are you so stubborn?" Reporters pointed out that everyone have been waiting for a long time and were happy for him. Wa Jai said, "Me too, thank you thank you." Has he hired any childbirth assistant because some required appointments a year in advance. Wa Jai said, "A year in advance? Who knows when the baby will come? Pregnancy only takes ten months." Would his mother help with her grandchild? He said, "I don't know, let me ask for you."
The Lunar New year will come soon, would this year be much more meaningful? Wa Jai said, "Please let me go. (We can get laisee!) Thank you for your concern." When asked again whether the baby will be a boy or a girl? Wa Jai joked that privately he could tell everyone. He himself liked both. As god-grandmother Deanie Ip Tak Han was asked whether the baby will be a boy or a girl. She joked, "I can't say, I can't talk about family stuff."
