Shotgun wedding for Daniel Chan

Hong Kong singer-actor Daniel Chan revealed that his girlfriend is over four months pregnant, when the couple met the media during their wedding celebration in Hong Kong on Wednesday.

HONG KONG: Hong Kong singer-actor Daniel Chan revealed that his girlfriend, 26-year-old Taiwan nurse Wang Yu Xian is pregnant, when the couple met the media during their low-key wedding celebration in Hong Kong on Wednesday, reported Hong Kong media.

“She is over four months pregnant. There is a 70 percent chance the baby will be a girl,” said Chan.

“Actually, the child’s gender doesn’t matter. She is due to give birth sometime in July, August and I will personally cut the umbilical cord.”

The 38-year-old star, who said he wants to have more children in the future, also revealed that they have not yet registered their marriage, but would do so as soon as possible after the wedding celebration.

Chan went on to stress that he didn’t marry Wang because of the baby as some tabloids have claimed, but only found out about Wang’s pregnancy after he had already decided to marry her.

He said he originally wanted to keep the details of his wedding under wraps and “just put the four words ‘I have gotten married’ on my micro blog” after the event, but was thwarted by “people around me who kept leaking the news”.
