ISABELLA Leong, the 22-year-old "partner" of 43-year-old Hong Kong billionaire Richard Li, gave birth to twins at the end of June, a little more than one year after delivering baby boy Ethan.
Various Hong Kong media reports are saying that Li, son of the "richest man in Asia" Li Ka-shing, put aside work and flew to San Francisco in time for the latest delivery.
A Sina article said Leong kept herself busy during her pregnancy by learning how to cook French cuisine for her extended family.
Michelle Lo, Leong's spokesperson, confirmed the news but said she had not received instructions to provide photos of the twins or mother.
Leong has been in the entertainment industry since she was 12 years old and was reportedly introduced to Li by actress Michelle Yeoh.
Meanwhile, in Taiwan, sisters Barbie Hsu and Dee Hsu have been having a war of words on weibo (microblog).
A couple of months ago TV host Dee uploaded an unflattering photo of her older sister on her Sina Weibo site, which showed actress Barbie cross-eyed and apparently the worse for wear after drinking too much.
Barbie got her own back this week by posting a shot of her younger sister eating a hamburger with her hands and looking around as if she was feeling guilty about it.
"I've been waiting for this moment," Barbie chirped. "I love my sister, I love her character, her talent, her wit and her passion for food. I'm a devil don't you know?"
These "ugly photos" have become quite a hit among fans and get a lot of comments, which just goes to prove the old adage: There's no such thing as bad publicity.
Model Pace Wu said the "ugly photo" of Dee was the "most exciting I have ever seen", while actor Huang Xiaoming twitted: "I love you too. Your family is so lovely."
Huang has been putting himself about a bit since his relationship with Hong Kong model AngelaBaby became staple fodder for the tabloids (and us).
He has even become involved in a war of words between China's top young literary giants, Han Han and Guo Jingming, according to Southern Metropolitan Entertainment Weekly.
The two good-looking writers are like chalk and cheese. While Han excels in pithy social commentary, Guo specializes in fantasy and love stories. Han has been less than complimentary about Guo, and the lack of admiration appears to be mutual.
Huang, handsome but daft as a brush, bought Guo's story Fantasy City to make it into a movie and then asked Han whether he would like to play a role in it.
Guo said in an interview that it was up to Huang who he cast and added, "I really don't care" if Han appears in the movie.
Han, obviously, refused. Duh!
