After three years of marriage, TVB stars Wong Cho Lam and Leanne Li are finally going to be parents.
Both took to their social media accounts on July 13 to share the good news, as it was the 9th anniversary of their first date.
Li posted an ultrasound and wrote in a combination of Chinese and English: “Today is the 9th anniversary of our courtship. I am very excited and grateful to be able to announce on this very special day, that I and Cho Lam will welcome a new life… so blessed to have a new life in our family. Happy 9th anniversary!”
Wong’s message, accompanied by a traditional Chinese drawing of a baby, was simpler. His post, in Chinese, reads: “We are expecting. Appreciate the congratulatory posts from colleagues. Elders are very happy.”
The former beauty queen said in an interview in Hong Kong that it did not matter to her whether it is a boy or a girl as long as the child is healthy.
Wong, 38, and Li, 33, are one of the most romantic celebrity couples in the Hong Kong entertainment scene. Often dubbed a mismatched couple due to their 15cm height disparity, they are fondly known as the pair with the “Romance Of The Long And Short Legs”.
He famously proposed to her during the 48th TVB Anniversary Gala celebration, because he hoped to have all their friends together to witness the special day. Held on Nove 19, 2014, the event was attended by more than 100 artistes, and broadcast to millions.
The lovey-dovey couple tied the knot on Valentine’s Day in 2015. And then, the following day, they held their wedding reception at Hong Kong Disneyland, because it was the place where they went on their very first date.
