Father-to-be Christopher Lee who can't stop talking about his baby says he is just as game to change the diapers, together with his actress-wife Fann Wong.

Between him and Fann, 43, he claims he will be the strict parent, although no one close to him, including his wife, believes him.

"Everyone says I will be the one to spoil the child. I guess we will have to wait and see after the baby is born."

Besides, how could anyone be convinced of his self-professed disciplinarian tendencies when he also claims to believe in fostering an open, communicative relationship with his child in future, a different dynamic from the traditional hierarchical relationship shared with his dad?

"My father and I loved each other, but we never sat down to talk much. I want my child to be my friend. If he or she has a love story to tell, I want my child to feel comfortable enough to share it with me."

The couple will soon find out the gender of their child. But whether they have a son or a daughter, there are more important traits Lee hopes he and his wife will pass on to their offspring than their good looks.

"I hope the kid takes after Fann's caring side. What attracted me to her was her good relationship with her family and how she showers them with care."
