Since marrying businessman Patrick Ma (馬廷強) in 2008, Gigi Lai (黎姿) spends most of her time caring for her family. She is also tasked in taking care of her younger brother, Stephen Lai (黎嬰), who had suffered a debilitating car accident in 2007, and managing his dermatology clinic.
Although heavily affected because of Stephen’s car accident, Gigi remained strong for his brother. Singlehandedly managing the business without a complaint, Gigi’s only wish is a speedy recovery for Stephen. Always possessing an utmost amount of hope and optimism for his brother’s condition, Gigi expresses she will not give up.
Stephen, as well, maintains a bright outlook on his health, smiling and answering questions with a positive attitude when they were spotted shopping in the men’s section at a department store earlier.
According to an article in Jayne Stars, Gigi was recently seen with Patrick and their twin daughters waiting in line for hours at a new Hello-Kitty-themed restaurant. Since their daughters, Patricia and Gianna, are fans of Hello Kitty, Gigi and Patrick brought them to the popular new restaurant. The twins started whining after the long wait, and the family eventually gave up standing in line. After driving Gigi and the twins back home, Patrick personally went back to the store to order take out for his daughters so that they will not be disappointed.
Besides Patrick, many artistes in the entertainment industry are prime exemplars of devoted parents. When Hacken Lee’s (李克勤) son, Ryan, enrolled in an international school, he purchased a $54 million HKD complex near the school so Ryan would not have to suffer from long car rides. To ensure that he does not wake his daughter up from her sleep, Andy Lau (劉德華) wears headphones whenever he watches TV at home.
