Yvonne Lim and Alex Tien’s little boy Alex Junior - fondly known as AJ - is going to be a big brother.
Today (July 25), it was revealed that the local actress, who is currently based in Taiwan with her family, has just passed her first trimester of pregnancy and is due to give birth to her second child in January next year.
In a photo shared by her artiste management agency, Yvonne is seen showing off a pronounced baby bump underneath a white tank top, as her husband holds their son and a sign that proudly proclaims “Baby No. 2!”
When asked if she plans to deliver the child in Singapore or Taiwan, the 39-year-old said that she is not sure yet, but already has confinement centres in both countries on standby. She added that this was an unexpected pregnancy, and that she has yet to know the sex of the baby. However, she hopes for a little girl so that her family will have the "perfect" combination of a son and a daughter.
Little AJ is clearly excited to have a sibling. According to Yvonne, the one-and-a-half-year-old loves to kiss her swollen tummy, and even told her that he wants an older sister (to which she laughed and explained that only having a younger sister is possible).
Hubby Alex, 36, is also thrilled to be a dad-of-two. In fact, he has already begun mentioning baby no. 3 - much to Yvonne's dismay, who joked about wanting to slap him when he said that, as she would want to wait at least a few years after their second one is born.
Upon hearing the happy news, the only local artiste Yvonne informed was Hong Hui Fang. "Every time Hui Fang tells me to quickly have a child, it happens!" she said. "If anyone wishes to have children, just ask her for her blessing. (laughs)"
Yvonne and Alex, formerly of Taiwanese boy band B.A.D, wed in September 2014 and welcomed AJ into the world in December that same year. Since tying the knot and becoming a mother, Yvonne has taken a break from TV screens, with her last project being 2014’s Blessings.
