Hong Kong Billionaire Bachelor's Triplets Raise Broader Questions over Surrogacy
Wall St. Journal: Maternal Mystery: Babies Bring Joy, and Questions, in Hong Kong, by Cathy Yan:

Their proud grandfather, Lee Shau-kee, the 82-year-old chairman of property developer Henderson Land Development Ltd. and one of the richest men in Asia, held up the three baby boys swathed in blue. Next to him stood the father, Peter Lee, the bachelor vice chairman and heir apparent to the Henderson empire.
There was only one thing missing: their mother. . . .
