The childless couple, who originally had no plans for children during the early years of their marriage, changed their stance in 2007 and expressed their desire to start a family of their own. In spite of the couple's efforts, Amy, 44, has yet to successfully conceive a child, even after visiting a traditional practitioner who specializes in curing impotency.
Close friends of the couple disclosed that Sean "wants a child desperately, especially after seeing that Andy Lau is going to be a father at his age [at 55 years old]".
It is said that Sean does not understand why both he and Amy are unable to successfully conceive a child despite their healthy lifestyles.
As he does not want to exert unnecessary pressure on Amy, a thoughtful Sean recently let on in an interview that he has given up trying for a child.
The loving couple went on a shopping spree a few days ago and the 48-year-old actor was spotted leading his wife into a Chinese medicinal shop, as if attempting to nurse Amy back to health with the help of tonics. The couple was said to have left shortly after as Amy appeared to be unhappy with her husband's actions.
