Actor Andy Lau's three-year-old daughter pictured in Beijing with mother

Hong Kong - She has big limpid eyes, a high nose and a small mouth.

That is three-year-old Hanna, who has evidently inherited the good looks of her actor dad Andy Lau and his Malaysian wife Carol Choo, according to a video showing a close-up of the girl whom Lau has long kept from public view.

Next Magazine posted the video, filmed by its reporters, on its website on Wednesday.

It shows Hanna with her mother, two bodyguards, two maids and an assistant at the Hong Kong airport last Thursday and later in Beijing.

They had flown there to join Lau to celebrate Choo's 49th birthday, which was on April 6 on Monday. Lau, 53, is in Beijing to work on Zhang Yimou's film The Great Wall.

The group was also pictured at a Beijing park, where Hanna was openly seen in Choo's arms.

That is a rare sight, considering that Lau had built a family bungalow in Hong Kong with CCTVs and patrolling guards to shield her from outsiders.

But Next Magazine, quoting a source, said things are changing as Lau plans to bring the tot to meet his fans in September.

Lau showed them pictures of Hanna on his mobile phone at a meeting in March last year, limiting each of them to three seconds per viewing.

On Wednesday, the actor responded to the report by saying: "Thanks for everyone's concern."
