Fann Wong and Christopher Lee in family way?

At the recently concluded Star Awards 2010, did Caldecott Queen and recent mother-of-three Zoe Tay shoot off her mouth again?

In 2005, the 42-year-old actress was the source of much awkwardness for Christopher Lee, when she cajoled the latter to propose to his then-girlfriend, Fann Wong. But five years later, the pair, both 39, are now happily married.

Recently, at Sunday' annual Star Search finals, Tay was fanning speculation that Christopher and Fann may be in the family way.

Shin Min Daily News and The New Paper reported that Tay had given a lot of 'hints' that Fann was expecting. She did most of the talking as Fann kept her silence.

Tay had told the media: "There will definitely be a baby! It will be coming soon!

As the media continued to probe, Tay teased even more: "When you think about it hard enough, you will get what you want. Everyone, please be a bit patient, there will be good news very soon! Hahaha!"

"I'm sure the announcement will come very soon... it must be a Rabbit Year baby!"

Reporters were also quick to pick up on signs that suggested Wong was pregnant.

Fann had taken urgent sick leave last week during the lensing ceremony of her new drama series "Happy Birthday".

She also looked visibly fleshier, as if she had added some weight to her cheeks during the Sunday evening event. She also switched from wearing high heels to flats before meeting the media with Tay.

But the most tell-tale sign is possibly her unusual coyness when asked about whether she was pregnant. In the past, she would have denied any misinformation.

Chinese media also speculated that she may not be as forthcoming about the news as she was not past her first trimester, usually the most crucial period for a pregnancy. Traditionally, Chinese parents are reluctant about sharing the good news until they are assured that the pregnancy is safe and stable.

But The New Paper reported that Wong's manager has denied the rumours.

She had told the daily: "If she is, how can she still continue filming? Further, the shoot (for Happy Birthday) just started."

The celebrity couple's friends also don't seem to believe that Wong is pregnant.

Wong's co-star in her latest drama series, Chen Hanwei, said that he did not spot any sign that she was pregnant, as she was still extremely lively.

The couple's 'god-mother', David Gan, also reiterated that Wong had not broken the news to him.

Radio DJ, Dennis Chew, who was one of the performers at the Star Search finals, said that she was still the same Fann Wong, walking backstage in heels and walking with a swagger. He also denied seeing her baby bump.
