Mother of two Cathy Chui Chi-kay says she's ready to have five more children, but first must learn to be a more cautious mother.

Chui (above), who is married to Henderson Land boss Lee Shau-kee's son Martin Lee Ka-shing, is the mother of two-year-old Leanna and three-month-old Hayley.

The Lee family threw a celebration to mark Hayley turning 100 days old at the company's Four Seasons Hotel last Sunday. Lee Shau-kee, 81, said he wanted at least three more grandchildren from Chui.

She seemed happy to oblige and said she wanted even more children. 'I want to have seven children, so when Martin and I get older we will have at least one child home for dinner on each of the seven days of the week,' Chu said at a skincare product launch this week.

But the 27-year-old said she is busy enough with the two children she already has, and plans for more will have to wait for at least a year. 'My older daughter has started running around and I need to chase after her, while my second daughter still needs to be carried all the time.'

Chui said she would have to keep a more watchful eye on her daughters. She said Leanna fell and hit her head on the floor last year when Chui looked away for a moment.

'It was my fault. Leanna couldn't stop crying and she also started vomiting. I was scared and took her straight to the hospital. When the doctor told me that Leanna might have suffered a brain injury and could have blood clots, my heart sank. It was the most painful moment of my life and I wished I was the one injured,' she said. 'Luckily, she is fine now.
