16 Aug - Hong Kong actress Sonija Kwok is getting ready to work again, after shedding 15 kilogrammes of baby weight in two months.
According to Jayne Stars, Sonija would be back to shoot a TVB period drama this September as she is working to regain her figure, while busily taking care of her daughter Kylie who was born in May.
"I weighed 148 pounds after the baby. But I've been eating very healthy and dropped back to 115 pounds," she said in a telephone interview.
Her husband Zhu Saojie has been encouraging her to resume her acting career, but parenting duties had not been very hard for the new mother.
"My mom was here to help me out in the beginning. The baby didn't wean off her milk at night yet, so I still take care of her at night. She is starting to giggle now and she's getting really chubby! She weighed about 10 pounds at the last check-up!" she said.
When asked whether she is planning to have a second child, Sonija said that she and her husband were eager, but they would have to wait before she could start conceiving again.
"Of course he wants to! I want to as well, but the doctor advised us to wait about six months, so perhaps at the end of the year? It's best if a child can have a playmate!" she said.
