Christopher Lee reveals Fann's 'fish fetish' since she got pregnant
by Jocelyn Lee

All eyes have been on Fann Wong and Christopher Lee since the actors revealed early last month that they were expecting their first child.

Lee, 42, was more than happy to share that his baby is already starting to, well, have the same taste as him.

At the lensing ceremony of his new Channel 8 drama series, Against The Tide, on Monday, the veteran actor told The New Paper: "My wife experienced morning sickness, suffering from nausea and loss of appetite during her first trimester.

"But she doesn't have many food cravings, maybe because she usually sleeps very early. She also looks just like before and hasn't changed."

The couple did notice a slight change in Wong's tastebuds, though - she has taken a liking to eating fish roe, something she did not enjoy in the past.

"I love fish roe but my wife doesn't. Recently, she said she wanted to eat it, and she told me: 'The baby is becoming just like you, eating what you love to eat,'" Lee said.

"I also don't really control what Fann eats, as I want her to be happy during the entire pregnancy."

Even though the public and the media are curious about the baby's gender, the daddy-to-be would rather keep it a secret.

Lee said: "We want to let nature take its course and let it be a surprise, so we won't reveal it yet.

"Fann is in her second trimester now, and both she and the baby are very healthy." On finding out his wife was pregnant at 43 after five years of marriage, Lee said that it came as a huge surprise.

"We didn't know how to react. We just looked at each other and went: 'Is this for real?' It was very unexpected," he said.

"But, when we realised it's a fact, we were nervous yet excited. She is slowly enjoying the process of being pregnant now."
