A FOURTEEN-YEAR-OLD girl raised eyebrows when she went online to source for “parents” for her unborn baby girl in Hong Kong.
Ah Pao, who is eight months’ pregnant, posted some pictures of herself several days ago, said China Press.
However, to date she has only received a barage of scolding from Netizens.
Some asked her about her feelings, but others chided her for putting up her pictures online.
Ah Pao revealed that the baby’s father had been sentenced to do community work.
China Press also reported that entertainer Harlem Yu and his estranged wife actress-singer Annie Shizuka Inoh had apparently divorced.
Yu admitted this during a recent interview with comedienne Sandra Ng in Hong Kong.
In her blog, Shizuka Inoh indicated that she would continue her life without having to depend on anyone.
Sources said the couple divorced a few years ago but decided to keep it under wraps for the sake of their son and their status.
They were forced to come out in the open when pictures of Shizuka Inoh holding hands with Taiwanese actor Huang Wei De were posted on the Net, the sources said.
