Local singers Tay Kewei and Alfred Sim have welcomed a baby boy into the world.

According to a press release by their management agency Cross Radio Entertainment, Kewei first started experiencing contractions yesterday morning (Sep 26), which lasted all the way until mid-afternoon. After consulting their gynaecologist, the 34-year-old was admitted into Parkway East Hospital last night, and the couple’s son, named Shen Mo, was delivered this morning (Sep 27), weighing a healthy 3.27 kilograms.

The press release also revealed that according to their gynaecologist, Kewei and Alfred’s son was initially due to be born on September 23. However, being long-time fans of Hong Kong Heavenly King Andy Lau, they hoped that the baby would be able to share his birthday of September 27. Alfred, 35, then tried coaxing his unborn child to stay in his mum’s tummy a little bit longer - and it looks like the little lad listened.

The tense moments leading up to the delivery, as well as the dramatic birth itself and all the happiness that followed, are documented in a special trailer episode for the second season of their reality web series Married, And Then?.

Viewers also get a close-up look at the new addition to the Sim family, whose eyes were described by his mother as being very “agile” (and is it just us, or he is not the spitting image of his daddy?)

The couple, who dated for 10 years before tying the knot in a lavish ceremony in 2015, announced their pregnancy on an episode of Married, And Then?, and continued to keep followers on their respective social media accounts updated on their journey to a new home and life as new parents.

Once again, congratulations to Kewei and Alfred!

In the more recent shot, Kewei shared that her baby has started to do “full stretches from the tip of my belly right down to my crotch”, and although it keeps her up at night, she cried happy tears the first time she felt it.

Kewei: heavily pregnant but still hard at work

Hard-working Kewei was still performing all the way up until her 36th week of pregnancy, with one of her last gigs being a meaningful one for a charity event with her husband. Besides singing, Kewei was also busy getting glammed up for photo shoots at 37 weeks. Like she put in her hashtags, she’s a “#hustlinmom” indeed.

Of course, it wasn’t all work and no play for the couple. During her 23rd week of pregnancy, Kewei and Alfred jetted off to Club Med Bintan for their babymoon (fun fact: they honeymooned at Club Med Finolhu), where we’re sure they had a nice, relaxing time before diving back into the daily grind.

Kewei certainly didn’t let being pregnant be an excuse for her to lead a sedentary lifestyle. Instead, she went for regular prenatal exercise sessions, such as yoga and physio pilates, which aimed to help her keep in shape as well as prepare her for a smoother delivery and post-birth recovery.

Alfred gives Kewei's tummy some love

Alfred must have been really excited to become a dad. Look at all the times he lavished love and attention on his pregnant wife’s bulging tummy. In fact, he once tried to listen to his unborn child so hard – literally – that he left an impression of his ear. We’re still wondering how that happened…

In addition to updates on her growing bump, Kewei also gave us insights into her ongoing home renovations, where she made normally boring shots like shopping for furniture or checking out her knocked-down-kitchen-wall look stylish and #ootd-worthy. Their swanky new pad was finally unveiled through a house tour on an episode of their reality web series Married, And Then?.

Before they found out they were expecting...

According to Kewei, this cool shot of her and Alfred on a nature expedition in Indonesia was taken when she was six weeks pregnant – but totally oblivious that she was with child. During the trip, she even jumped from a waterfall, tubed down a river in a thunderstorm and abseiled into a deep cave. Thankfully, her baby was unharmed and she found out that she was expecting not long after they got back to Singapore.

Kewei does a lovely pregnancy photo shoot

Kewei must adore this photo series because she posted several different pictures from the same shoot, most of which feature her sitting in a bathtub filled with milk and flower petals. Well, we can’t say we blame her: the shots are gorgeous (and so is the glowing mum-to-be).
