SINGAPORE - After piling on 16kg while pregnant with her first child, actress Fann Wong has lost it all within three months. While Fann is delighted, she says her husband, actor Christopher Lee, misses her fuller figure.
“He would say ‘baby, your body gives me a sense of security’. I think seeing me so chubby was refreshing for him. He got a bit concerned at how quickly I was losing weight,” Fann tells Life! in Mandarin on Wednesday evening after a press conference organised by slimming centre Marie France Bodyline, for whom she is spokesman.
Wearing a sheer Adriana Degreas bodysuit, a Club Monaco mini skirt and Christian Louboutin heels, Fann flaunted her slender post-pregnancy physique and answered questions about motherhood and six-month-old Zed.
The process behind her dramatic weight loss will leave most mothers envious.
Aside from frequent treatments at the slimming centre, Fann says that she did little else to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight of 53kg.
During her 100-day confinement period, she ate as much as she could to ensure that she had enough nutrients to breastfeed.
“If someone said fish soup was good, I would just keep eating it. If they said pig trotters were good, I would have a huge bowl. ” she says with a laugh.
As for exercise, she was under strict orders by her doctor not to engage in strenuous exercise in the first two months and only brisk-walked occasionally.
The half-hour media session also turned out to be a birthday celebration for Fann, who turns 44 on Jan 27, when Christopher, 43, made a surprise visit.
“She always surprises me, now it’s time for me to surprise her,” says Christopher, who is based in Taiwan.
One of the first things she asked upon seeing Christopher was: “Did you bring Zed Zed?”
It was clear from their cheeky and mushy banter on stage that the long-distance relationship has not put a strain on their marriage.
Weighing in on her dramatic weight loss, Christopher says jokingly: “Very good, now we can start working on our second dream. We don’t have to worry that she won’t be able to lose the weight if we have a second child.”
