Leo Ku Spent $1 Million HKD to Have Son in the USjessie tan
Forty-seven-year-old Leo Ku (古巨基) married his assistant, 51-year-old Lorraine Chan in 2014 after dating for 20 years. Loving children, the couple tried many different methods to have a baby, and they had seen various western and traditional Chinese medical doctors. Finally, Lorraine successfully became pregnant via in vitro fertilization and gave birth in the United States at the end of the year. Though the costs were expensive, the couple finally realized their dreams of becoming parents.
Under a medical expert’s suggestion, Lorraine had frozen her eggs several years ago, which gave her more options for pregnancy at a later date. The costs of egg freezing, in vitro fertilization, and giving birth in the United States are estimated to have cost the couple $1 million HKD. Since Lorraine was already 50 years ago when she became pregnant, Leo made sure his wife got proper care to ensure a safe delivery.
After completing his world concert tour in December 2019, with his last stop being Las Vegas, Leo took a long leave from his company and announced he will be focusing on taking care of his family. Aside from a brief appearance at a charity concert, Leo completely disappeared from the public eye.
During this time, Leo did not accept any interviews, or appear in any social gatherings. Especially with Covid-10 spreading, the new father is taking all safety precautions to keep his family safe.
As friends eventually got word that Lorraine had given birth to a baby boy, Leo received many calls and texts of congratulations. Last week, Leo finally confirmed the baby news and shared a photo of his son in a crib, in which he captioned, “We wanted to announce this happy news earlier, but with Covid-19, we didn’t feel it was the right time. We received a lot of congratulatory messages and we are very thankful for all the support. I will work hard to be a good husband and father.”
