The Hong Kong actor took his wife to India on his 49th birthday
Hong Kong actors Tony Leung and Carina Lau have been married to each other for three years but the couple has yet to have a child.
Recently, the Hong Kong media reported that Tony and Carina, in the hope of conceiving a baby,had left for New Delhi - a place where the couple had their honeymoon in 2008 -- after Tony celebrated his 49th birthday on Jun 27.
Three years ago at their honeymoon, the pair had visited His Holiness the Gyalwa Karmapa for the first time to receive blessings as a married couple.
It was believed that Tony and Carina revisited His Holiness this time to seek his blessings for a successful pregnancy.
"Previous rumours, which said Carina was going to conceive via artificial insemination in the US, were untrue. Carina is a religious person. She believes that her pregnancy should come naturally. This is why she didn't want her child to be scientifically conceived. Hence, she wants Tony to go on holidays with her, so that she is more relaxed. She said it's easier to become pregnant [that way]," an insider said.
The couple kept a low profile on their latest trip. It was revealed only after a netizen from Guangzhou spotted the couple having breakfast with Carina's best friend Faye Wong and posted the photos on her microblog.
