Award-winning Malaysian singer Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin took to Instagram yesterday to announce that she’s pregnant with her second child.
“Today, on 1 Dec. 2020, my husband and I would like to officially announce that I am four months pregnant,” the 41-year-old Kesilapanku Keegoanmu (My mistake is your ego) singer wrote online.
“We had no intention to keep it a secret, but my husband and I thought we’d share the good news with everyone, especially our family, friends and fans, when the time is right,” she continued, as she asked her followers to pray for herself and her baby’s good health.
“Please pray for good health for myself and my baby,” she said. “I am so happy with this gift from God, as I am now pregnant again after my daughter, Siti Aafiyah is more than two years old.”
