It looks like Shaun Chen has more than one reason to celebrate this Valentine’s Day – the father-of-one has shared that he and his wife, Celine Chin, are going to be parents for the second time.

Speaking to Toggle in a phone interview, the actor was the epitome of calmness when he shared the good news. “This isn’t the first time we’re having a baby; what will come will come,” he chuckled when we asked about his current state of mind.

Currently four months pregnant, his wife, Celine, has had quite a smooth pregnancy so far. He shared, “She’s still able to move around as per normal - she could even travel during her first pregnancy, so this time shouldn’t be a problem as well!”

Shaun shared that they have yet to find out about the unborn baby’s gender, but will be visiting the ob-gyn for regular checkups in the meantime so “it’s only a matter of time” before they find out.

“My first reaction was a rush of happiness – I don’t have any particular wish for a son or daughter. We’ll be happy as long as the baby is healthy,” he confessed.

“My wife, however, is hoping for another daughter because she feels that they are better-behaved,” the actor quipped. “The doctor wasn’t able to determine the gender yet (…) so we don’t know whose lover from our previous lives that we will be welcoming this year.”

“(Celine) is also very happy but she’s a bit tired, especially since my daughter (Nellie) has started to walk. We’ve gotten a nanny to help look after her, so hopefully things will be a little easier for her,” the 38-year-old added.

While there are no plans for Celine’s family members to come over to help look after her while she is pregnant, Shaun revealed that he is “planning for her to go back to her hometown to give birth again. She has family back home, so I’ll feel more at ease that someone is looking after her.” They have yet to confirm when she will return home to Alor Setar in Malaysia.

Given that his first child is a little over a year old, we asked if he feels the burden of having to look after an expanding brood. He chuckled, “I’m confident that I’ll be able to feed my family”, and explained that he will not be making much changes to his busy work schedule for the year, and will only be making arrangements with the director (he is currently filming mid-year blockbuster The Lead) to be by Celine’s side when she pops.

Shaun Chen tied the knot with Celine, in July 2015 and welcomed his first child in December the same year. The couple are expected to welcome their second child in late July.
