After spending most of the year away from his family, Donnie Yen is happy to finally be back in Hong Kong with wife Cissy Wang and their two children Jasmine and James.

As reported on Mingpao, the action star, who appeared alongside model wife at the K11 Night event on 11 December, stated that it has been nine months since he last come home, making it the longest duration he has ever been away from his family.


“I reflect on that while I was filming and realised that my time with my family has been reduced for work,” he said.

However, the actor said that he is fortunate that his relationship with his kids is closer than ever, though the changes in them made him a little sad as he didn’t get to witness them himself.

“Both my son and daughter have grown taller. My daughter is taller than me now and my son is now at my height. His voice has also changed,” he said.

Donnie also stated that he has decided not to do any new movie projects at least until April next year. Admitting that there are still a lot of movie plans in hand and that it would be difficult for him to stop completely, the actor promised that he will try his best to slow down.
