The 7ft 6in (2.26 meter) Houston Rockets centre, who wed his 6ft 2in basketballer girlfriend Ye Li at a private ceremony in Shanghai on Monday, was briefly caught off guard when China's Olympic hurdling champion, Liu Xiang, asked about his family plans on Tuesday.

"Having children...there's no plan at present. I will be concentrating on preparing for the NBA season and next year's Olympics," Yao said in comments published on Chinanews.com on Wednesday.

"To participate in the Olympics in your home country, it's an opportunity I will really cherish," Yao said.

"family plan" is used in English as a less direct way of talking about a new couple's plan to have children.

Allinall & Jl,

Thanks for the replies.

Jl, should " plan" be in plural or singular?

The plural form seems to be used more often.  But do remember that "family plans" may mean other kinds of plans as well.
