Nicholas Tse Praises Cecilia Cheung as a Good Mother
Since their divorce in 2011, Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) and Cecilia Cheung (張柏芝) each debunked the many rumors surrounding their break up and both stated they have no plans to get back together. Although no longer romantically linked, the two continue to share mutual respect and maintain a good partnership over raising their two young sons, Lucas (謝振軒) and Quintus (謝振南).
Over the past two years, Cecilia’s parenting skills were often scrutinized. Some criticized her decision to take Lucas out of school to go on oversea trips and leaving the boys with friends when she was out of town.
Despite these questionable parenting choices, Nicholas recently defended Cecilia and praised that she is a good mother to their sons. “I am a pretty strict father, and Cecilia shares my parenting views. She has taught them very well. Both of my sons are very polite, and will do as they are told. They are also not annoyingly chatty. Cecilia contributed to a great extent as their mother.”
When asked if he would consider getting married again, Nicholas shares that his career and his two sons are currently his first priorities. “If you ask me [if I am dating anyone] right now, the answer is definitely no. I am a very boring person… everyone will surely find out if I do have a new partner. I will let my love life take its natural course! It is not something that can be forced.”
Reflecting on his career and the ups and downs he had faced since entering the entertainment industry in 1997, Nicholas now takes a more mature perspective and encourages others to appreciate the simple things in life. “Everyone should live in the present. Many of us from big cities think too much before pursuing what we love. Sometimes living simply is already good enough. We should have meals with our families whenever there is time. We will be happier when we stop thinking so much.”
