Former beauty queen, Koni Lui who is four-months pregnant revealed that she will find out the gender of her baby next week. As reported by Ming Pao, the mother-to-be admitted that her pregnancy is still not showing despite already entering her second trimester, and that people are more aware of the increase in her bosom size rather than her baby bump.

"People kept congratulating me, not for the baby, but for the size increase!" said Koni. "My husband kept urging me to eat more. He was afraid that I will starve myself. Actually I really have been gaining weight, but it's not showing."

Koni said that she has an ultrasound consultation with the doctor next week.

"I don't want to be surprised. I want to know from the get go. That way you can prepare the baby's items accordingly," said Koni.

Koni married husband and former Mr. Hong Kong participant back in 2011 after ten years of relationship. Though she always expressed publicly about her desire to have children, it's only just recently the actress had announced her pregnancy.

Though a lot of viewers are complaining about TVB's decision to air mainland dramas to pull ratings up, actor Wayne Lai said that he has no qualms about the programming strategy.

As reported on On CC, the actor whose new series, "Rear Mirror" was postponed from its 28 April premiere and has been replaced by the mainland production of "Journey to the West", said that Hong Kong actors can't dominate all the work.

Speaking to the media at the press conference announcing the airing of "Journey to the West" the actor said, "The television industry should have a good environment for it to develop. More choices for viewers means there is a healthy competition."

When asked if he doesn't mind his new drama being postponed to an indefinite time, the actor replied, "I don't mind the dates or the viewers' reception. I believe that there must be a reason for any postponement. The company liked "Rear Mirror" when it was viewed to them earlier, so I don't see any problem with it."

"I only enjoy filming. All the other things are beyond my control," Wayne said.
