Christine Fan pregnant with twins

Singer-actress Christine Fan revealed Sunday (Aug 24) in a micro blog post that she is pregnant with twins, and explained why she has temporarily named them Big Panda and Small Panda.

TAIPEI: Singer-actress Christine Fan revealed Sunday (Aug 24) in a micro blog post that she is pregnant with twins.

“There will be new members joining our little family! Thank the heavenly father for giving us more than we ever asked for!

“We’ve temporarily named them Big Panda and Small Panda because their mother had them after she fell, and had bruises that made her look like a panda,” said Fan.

The 38-year-old singer-actress explained through her management agency that she only found out she was pregnant when she underwent a medical examination, after she fell down at home on June 17. The fall left her with bruises on her face.

She accompanied the announcement with a photo of her and her husband, television host Blackie Chen Jian Zhou, holding what appears to be an ultrasound photo of their unborn children.

The celebrity couple’s friends like Pace Wu, Ella Chen and Wang Lee Hom quickly congratulated them over their micro blogs.

“This news makes me so happy! Good things come in pairs!” said Wang.
