Actress Yvonne Lim announced through her manager on Sunday that she is pregnant with the child of her soon-to-be husband Alex Tien, a former member of Taiwan boy band B.A.D.
Lim had revealed in March that she and Tien were going to get married, and only recently revealed that their wedding will be held in Singapore on Sept 7.
The actress, who sported a three-carat diamond ring given to her by Tien at a media conference for her upcoming drama Blessings on Wednesday, looked positively radiant at the event, and had said she was happily preparing for her nuptials.
Lim and Tien started dating in December last year, though they have been friends for over for over a decade.
“It’s something we both wanted and we’re both very happy,” the 37-year-old actress told TODAY. “Right after we announced our engagement, we knew we wanted kids. And maybe because we’re not getting any younger, we didn’t want to waste time and we just let nature take its course.”
“We didn’t expect it to be so fast.”
Lim added that her close friends, including Hong Hui Fang and Ivy Lee, also encouraged her baby-making plans. “Ivy Lee is in Hong Kong and I just called her to let her know. I said, ‘You must come to my wedding and see me walk down the aisle with a baby bump.’ She was like, ‘I don’t care about you. I care about the baby now!’”
