Since the birth of his daughter Hanna in 2012, Andy Lau (劉德華) has been extremely protective of his family.
Cherishing the child that he and wife Carol Chu (朱麗倩) have been hoping to have for years, Andy has reduced his workload to spend more time with family.
This Christmas, Andy plans to play the role of Santa Claus to make his daughter happy. To ensure the family’s privacy, Andy surrounded his estate with bodyguards.
Since Hannah’s birth, Andy has moved three times to avoid the paparazzi, reports Jayne Stars. Still worried that reporters will sneak into the house and capture a picture of baby Hanna, Andy hired ten bodyguards, three nannies, and installed five CCTV’s around the premises of his residential complex.
Andy specifically had barbed wire fences put around the exterior walls of his house and 2-hour security guards patrol the nearby area.
Although over protective of Hanna, Andy only wanted the best for his daughter.
For the holidays, Andy will take a short vacation to spend quality time with his family despite his busy schedule. Taking Christmas, Andy laughed and said he will be Santa Claus this year and bring presents for Hanna.
“She doesn’t know how to write or draw yet but I already helped her hang up stockings to see if Santa Claus will bring her any presents this year.”
Andy added: “I won’t be working on New Year because I promised my family I would spend it with them and stay in Hong Kong.”
