Ronald Cheng Chung Kei stars in the Lunar New Year film HELLO BABIES (LUK FUK HEI SI).
In one scene, he and co-star Fiona Sit Hoi Kei picked a lucky time, entered an old temple and got on a dragon bed.
Sandra Ng Kwan Yu even taught them how to conceive in one try. A father in real life, Ronald suffered from leg cramps during this scene and turned conception into comedy.
One of this year's Lunar New Year films, HELLO BABIES starred Raymond Wong Pak Ming, Eric Tsang Chi Wai, Sandra Ng Kwan Yu, Ronald Cheng Chung Kei, Fiona Sit Hoi Kei and Lynn Xiong (Hung Doi Lam).
Playing a couple in the film, Ronald and Fiona's relationship has already turned into a friendship and they had no intention of having a baby.
Yet their elder Wong Pak Ming forced them to either have a child within a year or be disowned.
They could only follow through. With the assistance of star midwife Ng Kwan Yu they picked a time that would guarantee them a boy in one try.
In an old temple Ronald and Fiona lay on the prop dragon bed and prepared to "start". However the story of course developed into a lot of comedy.
First because the lucky hour has not arrived, the fully prepared Ronald could only hold still with his legs.
After holding back for a long time the hour arrived, when he thought he could begin the expert Kwan Yu began her "lecture" on how to guarantee a boy.
Kwan Yu personally instructed Ronald and Fiona the three step process then added a family secret recipe of truly singing to the mother's belly from the heart to guarantee a boy.
As soon as Ronald opened his mouth he sang GAMBLER'S SELF LAMENT. Finally Ronald and Fiona got into the scene.
When Ronald tried to call out Fiona, he mistakenly yelled out his friend Vincent Kok Tak Siu's name. Thus they ran into a pillar right before they wrapped.
Ronald said that when they shot this scene they laughed from the beginning to the end. At the same time the shoot was very tough because the story required him to lift up his legs.
After the shoot he not only had a cramp from laughing but also in his legs.
