He said that his wife had to take care of something at home, but since he wore his wedding ring it met that she was there too. Soon to be a father, he was asked about the pregnancy.

He said, "I am not nervous, I am very happy."
Cheung Chi Lam was asked why his look has not changed in 20 years. He joked that he started as a child star, only that everyone grew up with him. "I know what is happening with me, I am getting old everyday with everyone, only outsiders can't tell. I am a normal person, all natural with no additive." Returning to Macau, Chi Lam said that he had a special relationship with Macau. Thus his films in Macau would perform well and leave beautiful memories. Yesterday he came to support Macau. Speaking of the Mainland authorities' strict investigation of the film IP MAN 3's box office, he said, "I am not certain about the details, but I really like this film. I paid actual money for a ticket."
