DATUK MICHELLE YEOH, who longs for a child, has adopted a boy and a girl as her own children. She also treats her brother’s four children as her own.

Yeoh said she hoped to have a child of her own one day. She and Ferrari boss Jean Todt have been dating for some time but there has been no word of marriage.

“But we usually don’t get what we want if we hope for it too much,” Yeoh said, adding she will leave it to fate as to whether she will have any kids of her own.

She said she had a soft spot for her brother’s youngest two-year old child. “During many trips home, I would bring the child to Hong Kong with me for a while because I couldn’t help leaving the child back in Malaysia.”

Yeoh just completed filming Sunshine in London.
