Fann Wong pregnant with first child

Fann Wong revealed that she is pregnant in a Facebook post on Tuesday and says she "can't wait" to see her baby.

SINGAPORE: Singapore actress Fann Wong revealed that she is pregnant in a Facebook post on Tuesday.

“Yes, we’re having a baby! Can’t wait to see our little new bundle of joy!” said Wong.

This comes shortly after cryptic photos of Wong and her friends at her birthday celebration surfaced recently.

The photos sparked rumours that she was pregnant, which were promptly denied by Wong's manager at the time.

Speaking to Taiwan media at a Lunar New Year event in Taipei on Tuesday, Wong’s husband, actor Christopher Lee, said he has “waited a long time for this”, and described the baby as “a gift from Heaven”.

Lee, 42, who married Wong, 43, in 2009, added that he had a tough time keeping the happy news to himself and adhering to the folk custom of not revealing a pregnancy until the first three months are over, when he first found out about it.

Wong is currently resting in Singapore, while Lee will return to Singapore later this month for an acting project, which will also give him the opportunity to spend time with his wife.
