Moses Chan to wed Aimee Chan in Australia next year

Hong Kong TVB actor Moses Chan finally wins Aimee Chan's hands in marriage after several fruitless proposals in the past six months. According to recent news reports, his one-year-long girlfriend, Aimee, finally said "yes" and the couple plans to hold their wedding in Australia next year.

During Aimee's birthday celebration in April this year, Moses specially styled a 'French proposal' with a Cartier Love ring and a bouquet of hydrangea specially flown in from France. Though Aimee was moved by his efforts, she did not give him an answer immediately.

The 41-year-old did not give up and proposed to Aimee again on several occasions; his hard work finally paid off when she gave the nod of approval two months ago.

Currently living together, the two met on the set of TVB drama War of the Heart in 2010 and have been dating for over a year. Both Moses and Aimee had to fend off several marriage speculations since going public with their relationship and refuted claims with replies such as "We'll talk about that later" and "Marriage can wait" in their interviews.

Stefanie Sun excited to welcome bundle of joy

Local songbird Stefanie Sun has been hitting the gym and pool on a regular basis "" at least five days a week "" to prepare for the arrival of her first child.

In her final trimester now, the 34-year-old has been gearing up for natural childbirth and recently wrote about her pregnancy journey as an expecting mum, on Twitter.

Even though she gained 12kg from the pregnancy, a determined Stefanie visits the gym regularly and jokes that she looks like a "turtle on the treadmill". The singer's mobility has been reduced by half due to the itch from her swollen legs and confessed that her sitting posture has since become very "unglam".

"I woke up at 3am. This is called "˜animalistic maternal instinct'. Apparently it is something that happens to the pregnant, to guard against nocturnal predators", she wrote.

With her maternal instincts kicking in these days, Stefanie has been occupied folding baby clothes and enjoying the "baby smell" on them. Excited and well-prepared for the arrival of her first child, she shared, "Yes, I am very excited! I am waiting to welcome the baby with strong open arms."

Stefanie's spokesperson Xu Pei Yun mentioned that the mum-to-be has been attending many pre-natal courses lately. Pei Yun also said that Stefanie's family were informed of the baby's gender a long time ago, but have plans to keep it as a surprise.
