Cathy Chui Chi-kei made her first public appearance since giving birth in mid-May to Henderson Land Development heir Martin Lee Ka-shing's second daughter, Hayley. On Tuesday afternoon, the wife of the tycoon's second son appeared in her role as ambassador for the Chi Heng Foundation to receive a HK$90,000 donation from Korean skincare brand Sulwhasoo as the firm opened a lavish new spa in Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. Now that she's a mum to two children, two-year-old Leanna and baby Hayley, the former model's priorities are now focused on caring for kids, which is why she remains committed to the charity that helps Aids orphans on the mainland.

'[Martin and I] love the joy of having kids around,' Chui gushed. 'We really want to have another baby soon. I just love the feeling of carrying a baby. It feels so special, especially when the baby is kicking you from the inside. Since we have two girls already, we would love to have a boy next time.'

No doubt, patriarch Lee Shau-kee would desperately want some grandsons to continue the empire, too. For the time being, he has to settle for two heiresses in training. 'Right now, [Hayley] is not too difficult to look after. All she does is sleep and eat, but I do need to give more attention to my elder daughter. She is now attending summer school and she seems a little jealous, so I ought to spend more time with her and help her get used to having a younger sister.'
