40-year-old Kelly Chen is currently seven months pregnant. However, her body has not gone through major changes, sparking rumours that the actress might be undergoing a dieting regime despite being pregnant.
The actress, who has always been very self-conscious of her looks, now sports a small baby bump that appears as if she’s four months pregnant when in reality, she is seven months pregnant.
During the pregnancy of her first son, Chace Lau, in July 2009, Kelly had requested for a nutritionist to design a healthy low-fat pregnancy diet for her.
Now pregnant with her second son, nicknamed “Little Bun”, the actress was said to have hired the same nutritionist for her meals.
According to Hong Kong reports, Kelly diet is a low-fat and highly nutritious one which consist of milk, steam fish, vegetables, and eggs.
On the other hand, she was also instructed to stay away from tonics such as bird nest and fish maw.
Even though her small baby bump might be a cause of worry, insider sources from the Hong Kong tabloid suggested that it was part of Kelly’s intention, as “she is worried about getting fat”.
“Sometimes she (Kelly) would not drink milk, or cut her five-meal intake into three meals a day, this is why her baby is still very small in size,” a source commented.

Rodney King, whose videotaped beating by police led to the 1992 Los Angeles riots, pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor reckless driving in connection with his arrest in Moreno Valley last summer on suspicion of driving under the influence.
Under a plea agreement, King was sentenced to 20 days home detention and ordered to wear an ankle bracelet to monitor his movement. Authorities agreed to drop two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence, although King was fined $500, ordered to complete a nine-month sobriety education program and placed on three years probation, according to John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney.
King entered his plea through a court appointed public defender and was not present during the hearing.
In July, King was driving a 1994 Mitsubishi when he was pulled over by a traffic officer in Moreno Valley, about 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles. Following his July arrest, King told CNN he was under the influence of a “medical marijuana prescription” but denied driving while intoxicated.
According to Riverside County prosecutors, King’s blood alcohol reading was 0.06 percent, which is below the 0.08 legal limit in California.
“He was driving while intoxicated and found to have a measurable amount of alcohol in his system. However, we believe we would have been unable to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury that his blood-alcohol content was 0.08 percent or higher,” Hall said. King did not respond to calls for comment.
King’s 1991 beating by Los Angeles police officers after a traffic stop left him with skull fractures and brain and kidney damage. It was captured on video by a nearby resident, and four officers were indicted as a result. Their trial the following year led to three acquittals and a mistrial in the predominantly white suburb of Simi Valley, verdicts that set off three days of riots in African-American neighborhoods.
By the time it was over, 55 people were dead, more than 2,000 were hurt, and property damage exceeded $1 billion. Two of the officers were later convicted of federal civil rights charges, and King won $3.8 million in damages from the city in a civil suit.
King was on parole for robbery at the time of the beating and has had several run-ins with the law in the ensuing years. He served a 90-day jail term in 1996 for a hit-and-run involving his wife at the time, and he pleaded guilty in 2004 to reckless driving and driving under the influence of a controlled substance.
In March, he was cited for driving without a license after being pulled over in Arcadia, California.
In a 2011 CNN documentary, King spoke to CNN’s Don Lemon about his struggle with alcohol abuse. “I’ll always have an issue when it comes to alcohol. My dad was an alcoholic, the addiction part is in my blood,” King said. “What I’ve learned to do is to arrest my addiction. Arrest it myself, so I don’t get arrested.”
The couple of seven years welcomed their third child, a baby boy, in Santa Monica, Calif., a source confirms to Us Weekly.
Garner and Affleck’s new little one joins older daughters Violet, 6, and Seraphina, 3.
Announcing her pregnancy in August 2011, Garner, 39, managed to stay mum on the gender of her family’s third baby, and while she admitted she’d be thrilled to have another girl, said Affleck was excited either way.
“I would have thought [he wanted a boy]. At first…I really thought so,” the Arthur actress told Jay Leno in January. “And then [Ben] kind of said, ‘Well, we have girls. We know how to do girls. My girls love me. I’m the big guy in the house.’ So, now I’m not sure.”
Garner’s older daughters had quite a ball acting as a focus group for potential baby names for their brother.
The actress joked she and Affleck entertained their suggestions for baby names — most of which happen to be Disney-themed. “[They suggested] Donald Duck, Minnie Mouse Affleck,” Garner joked. “And then they moved on…[to] Peter Pan, Captain Hook, Smee.”
A rep for Garner did not return requests for comment.
