Andy Lau will not hold first month party for daughter

Hong Kong actor Andy Lau and his wife have chosen not to hold a first month celebration for their daughter to maintain their daughter's privacy, according to Taiwanese reports.

He refused to share her photos with the media. The low profile 50-year-old feels that his daughter is too young, and worries that party guests may upload pictures of her online. He only allows selected friends to visit his home to see his baby, who was born on May 9.

Instead, to celebrate his daughter's first month, he has followed Hong Kong traditions and sent a ginger vinegar dish to family and friends. As the couple are devout Buddhists, they chose to send a vegetarian version of the traditional braised pork trotters with ginger and black vinegar. The vegetarian version replaces pork with potatoes and mock meat.

The workaholic actor has also reportedly applied for 10-day paternity leave. He has been spending more time taking care of his wife and daughter after filming for his new movie "Blind Detective" was halted as co-star Sammi Cheng is on medical leave.
