Former Olympic diver Guo Jingjing (郭晶晶) married rich tycoon Kenneth Fok (霍啟剛) in a lavish wedding ceremony in Hong Kong last November. The media is abuzz that Jingjing is now pregnant and the couple will be pay top dollar as they anticipate the birth of their first child.Last Saturday was the wedding ceremony of Michael Tien’s (田北辰) daughter. Kenneth attended the wedding with Jingjing. When reporters spotted them and went up to congratulate the couple, Kenneth said, “We accept your congratulations; we accept your blessings‘, hence silently admitting of the pregnancy reports. Even Kenneth’s parents were smiling and did not deny the claims, reports East Week.Lately, contractors were seen at the Foks’ mansion. Some speculate that the family wanted to construct a 10,000 square feet children’s playground for the baby. An inside source revealed, “Kenneth and Jingjing are first time parents, and they are very nervous and excited. They have plans to transform the baby’s room into rainbow colors, but they do not know if it’s a boy or girl so they used neutral colors like yellow or pale blue. Since Jingjing is an athlete, Kenneth wants to build a baby pool and gym.‘The Foks’ baby room alone is revealed to be 1,000 square feet in size. In contrast, a recent survey by the government, reported that there are more than 170,000 people still living in a subdivided small room in Hong Kong.Kenneth and Jingjing have been looking to hire postpartum confinement assistants to help care for their baby. They interviewed the applicants and tested their skills in feeding the baby, changing diapers and cooking nutritional meals. Apparently, only the top five will be selected. The Foks will pay $80,000 HKD a month, which is several times more than the standard salary.
