Cecilia Cheung Calls Her Son Her “Idol” After The 15-Year-Old Chose To Donate His Birthday Presents To Those In Need

All the teenager asked for was a foot massage from his mum 'cos that’s something he “really loves”.

On Aug 3, Cecilia Cheung took to social media to celebrate her eldest son Lucas’ 15th birthday.

In the video she posted on Instagram, the 42-year-old actress recounted the day she spent with Lucas, writing: “[I] Hope that when you’re 18 and more mature, you’ll look back on this video of mummy and know how I felt on your birthday this year. It was very heartwarming and sweet, Happy Birthday.”

“His birthday present [this year] is a foot-massage. To him, this present is the best,” said Ceci in the video.

“He then told me ‘Mummy I love you very much’, before saying ‘Do you know that I really love foot massages?’,” she chuckled.

She was very touched to hear that from her son, saying: "When you’re able to do something for the person you really care about, and they really enjoy it, the satisfaction is very strong," she said.

Ceci then went on to share about her very "proud mum-moment". 

According to Cecilia, she'd told Lucas that some of her friends had gifts for him. His response? “I don’t need them, I have enough, why not we donate them to people who need them more?”

“At that time I really thought, ‘Wow, my son is my idol!’,” she beamed.

Cecilia also posted some rare pictures of her and her sons on her IG Stories.

In the pics, Lucas could be seen wearing the outfit that Cecilia picked out for him: a red LV jacket she "bought long ago but has never been worn."

She also shared that it “feels like just yesterday” that she was getting ready to welcome Lucas into the world. 

Cecilia ended her five-year marriage with Nicholas Tse, 41, in 2012 and they have two sons together, Lucas and Quintus, 12. She also has a three-year-old son Marcus, whose dad's identity remains a mystery.

Many netizens then commented that Lucas doesn’t look like his father, and that he looks more like his uncle Cheung Pak Man, instead.

Some netizens then said Lucas “will definitely be more handsome than his father in the future.”
