Barbie Hsu may be expecting

Taipei - Actress Barbie Hsu last Friday said she might finally be pregnant after being married for almost three years.

But she told reporters in a telephone call she had not got a doctor's confirmation nor told her Chinese businessman husband Wang Xiaofei and her restaurateur mother-in-law Zhang Lan the good news.

She said she was confident about it as she has missed her period.

The media read her eagerness to talk about a pregancy as her attempt to deflect its scrutiny from her talkshow host sister Dee Hsu, whose husband Mike Hsu and father-in-law Hsu Ching-hsiang are being probed over allegations of profiting from insider trading.

Barbie Hsu, 37, had been photographed looking more fleshy lately.

She spoke to the media after sending out a statement, asking reporters to spare some thought in their write-ups for Hsu Ching-hsiang, whom she described as "kind" but "ineloquent".

The alleged insider trading case involved a bakery endorsed by her sister and owned by Mike Hsu and Hsu Ching-hsiang.
