Malaysian singer Siti Nurhaliza pregnant after 11 years of trying!
A big congratulations to the mum- and dad-to-be!
It's happy times for popular Malaysian singer Siti Nurhaliza and husband Khalid Mohamad Jiwa.
The Malaysia star confirmed yesterday (Friday October 13) via social media that she is four months pregnant with her first child!
"I'm four months pregnant. There are no words that I can use to express my gratitude," the 38-year-old mum-to-be said in an Instagram live stream.
She also explained that this is why she had been absent from the public scene the last few months:
"I chose to rest at home because this pregnancy is my main priority at the moment. I used to be very busy with work but these last four months, I've just been staying at home."
Nurhaliza mentions that she was getting fertility treatment and wanted to give that her full attention, which is why she had been turning down quite a few gigs.
"I have waited 11 years for this. With singing, I can do it whenever I want. This (pregnancy) is my main focus at the moment and as such, I had to decline a few concerts and gigs that I was offered."
The singer miscarried back in December 2015. She added that she wants to share her fertility journey to give hope to other women who might also be struggling to conceive.
We wish her a smooth pregnancy and birth journey. Congratulations to the mum- and dad-to-be!
