It's a son for Isabella and Richard Li
What do you give a man who has everything? Ask PCCW chairman Richard Li Tzar-kai.
The second son of Li Ka-shing gave Hong Kong's richest man a grandson with the help of the delightfully beautiful Isabella Leong Lok-si.
The hardest part was the name, of course, and the two tycoons kept it all in the family: Grandpa Li named the boy Li Chang-zhi while the father christened him Ethan.
Leong's manager, Michelle Lo, said the big day was on April 26, with Ethan Li weighing in at seven pounds.
The actress, who will be 21 this month, opted for a natural birth and was ably supported throughout by Richard Li, pictured with Little Ethan and Isabella Leong.
Leong is said to have no plans to return to work, and that may be just as well, given the actress was involved in a contractual dispute with Emperor Entertainment Group in April last year, when the Eurasian actress was accused of breaking a 10-year contract her mother struck for her when she was only 12 years old.
The legal battle ended in an out-of-court settlement eight months later.
Little Ethan is only the latest little bundle of joy for Li Ka-shing, who has been blessed with three granddaughters and a grandson from Victor Li Tzai-kuoi.

Translated by: email@example.com
CEO Richard Li and his artiste girlfriend Isabella Leong have confirmed that they are now parents to a baby boy, born in April in Canada. Grandfather Li Ka Shing personally named him 'Cheung Chi'. Sources say that Li Ka Shing has always frowned upon Isabella's background, but has become very happy with her for giving him a grandson. The most important thing to a Chiu Chow man is to have a son carry on the family name. The relationship between Li Ka Shing and Isabella have greatly changed for the better. Isabella has surely paved her way to marrying into a rich family.
Isabella's spokesperson announced that her son, Ethan (english name given by his father, Richard Li), was born in Toronto on April 26. They clarified that this was not an accidental pregnancy, but a planned 'product of their love'.
Li Ka Shing: Happy but Keeping a Low Profile
Li Ka Shing accepted an interview yesterday morning. When he was asked whether he was happy that his second son became father to a baby boy, he says 'definitely happy'. Yesterday was a busy workday for Li Ka Shing. His lunch hour was also spent in the office. Around 4pm, he left the office with an entourage of bodyguards. When reporters asked of his feelings towards his grandson, he said "I replied this morning already!" When reporters asked again if he has seen his new grandson, he didn't reply but maintained a smile. It seems like he was in a good mood.
Through his spokesperson, Li Ka Shing expressed that he knew in advance that his son was about to become a father. When the baby was born, it was kept fairly simple and low key. With his four previous grandchildren (Victor Li's children), none of them had a 'Full Month Birthday' celebration. Rather it was just dinner with the family. His second grandson is named 'Cheung Chi' which would make people think of the Lee family's business (because the 'Cheung' is in the business name Cheung Kong Limited). Li Ka Shing explains that the name has nothing to do with business. The 'Cheung' in fact follows their family's naming tradition. The 'Chi' in his name has different meanings. Reporters have been looking into the definitions.
Originally Did Not Approve of His Son and Isabella's Relationship
Li Ka Shing appeared at ease yesterday, but according to an insider, Li Ka Shing did not approve of his son pursuing Isabella, but after his grandson was born, he did a complete 180. "Li Ka Shing disliked Isabella from the beginning. Her background was complicated, plus being a past artiste. But for a Chiu Chow person, having a son means everything, so when his grandson was born, all the misgivings were pushed into the past. He told her to keep having children and to have more than Richard's brother." It seems like Ethan's birth has greatly improved Isabella's relationship with her future father-in-law.
Sources say that in April, Richard's company was dealing with lawsuits. But in the midst of it, he took two weeks off to be with Isabella in Canada. Although good friends already knew she was expecting, every time Richard was asked about it, he would only laugh and deny. Seems like he had intended to keep it a secret. One source says that Richard is truly in love with Isabella. Richard probably liked mixed girls from his days studying abroad (Isabella is Chinese Portuguese mixed). He has a liking for girls with sad upbringings, so it seems like he has to play the hero. At this time the two are still unwed, but the source continues to say that "they already live together, plus now they have a son. Whether or not they marry is not a big deal."
Isabella's spokesperson says that Ethan weighed 7 lbs at birth. Right now he's just under 10 lbs. Isabella has recovered quickly and doesn't find breast-feeding tiring. Ethan is very easy to take care of and loves to smile. This has made her relieved and her family extremely happy. Right now she's focused on taking care of her son and has no plans to make a comeback.
