    When will Fann Wong and Christopher Lee have a second child? Really, it must be their youthful good looks – many seem to have forgotten that both are already 48 years old, and are always asking if they hope to have another baby.

    The celebrity couple has a five-year-old son, Zed, who was born on National Day (Aug 9) in 2014.

    At a promotional event in Taipei for her upcoming Taiwanese-Singaporean drama series, All Is Well, on Monday (Aug 26), Fann was asked the question, again.

    According to media reports, she admitted that her dreams of having a second child will most likely be impossible.

    When asked if she still hopes to have a daughter, Fann said: “I don’t think I want one now. I’ve already reached a certain age. Things are good the way they are.”

    Indeed, if we may add on for Fann, while today’s older mums may have medical advances on their side and celebrities including Liu Lingling had a baby at age 50, doctors often remind that the risks should not be downplayed.

    In a previous radio interview with Singapore Chinese station Love 97.2 FM, Fann fielded a similar query from the deejays.

    She replied: “My husband keeps saying he wants a second child too, but it’s not that easy! We waited so long for the first one. So, hopefully, we’ll be blessed with a second one.

    “That’s the only response I have! I can’t possibly give birth just for you! I am continuing to take Chinese medicines. We are trying, but since we are often in different countries, there’s only so much we can do.”

    At the event for All Is Well, it was reported that Fann described herself as a “neurotic” mother. For example, if Zed chokes or coughs during his swimming lesson, she’ll get anxious and fuss over him while Christopher rolls his eyes in exasperation and asks her to calm down.

    The couple has also agreed that Zed must always be accompanied by a parent. In other words, if either Christopher or Fann has to travel, the other parent will remain behind to care for Zed.

    When it comes to work, Fann revealed that she has cut down on her working engagements and rejected offers that require her to travel very far.

    Even if she’s filming in Singapore, she has to consider whether the shoot will clash with the school holidays and how long she has to be away from Zed.

    She said that she can’t be away from Zed for more than five days and on the occasion where she has to leave, both mum and son will be hugging in tears, prompting Christopher to tease them.

    This year will also be a special moment for Fann and Christopher as they celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. Will there be a surprise?

    She laughed: “I don’t know if my husband will give me a surprise. I hope he does.”
