It's curious to see how the launch of a range of high-end baby strollers can attract as many celebrities as a preview of luxury watches or handbags. Then again, most people do have a soft spot for babies.

German brand Cybex's launch of its new strollers and baby car seats on Tuesday attracted a fair few A-listers, including action star Donnie Yen Ji-dan and model Qiqi Yam. Yen, a father of two, said he would not mind having more children. 'I've always wanted more children, but you can't force it,' he said. 'My kids want a little brother or sister, or both. My wife [model Cecilia 'Cissy' Wang] wants to wait until I'm more mature. I understand it's hard being a mum.'

Now filming Raymond Wong Pak-ming's new comedy in Hong Kong, Yen said he enjoyed spending time with his family. 'I go home for dinner every night after filming, but I don't get to sleep until one or two in the morning after playing with my son. My son is very energetic.'

Could the youngster be another martial arts star in the making?
