When Cheryl Wee told us that she was hoping to give her son Marc a younger sibling by this year at the Fresh! Takes press conference last month, little did we know that said younger sibling was already a bun in her oven by then.

According to the actress-entrepreneur, she and her architect hubby Roy Fong discovered she was expecting about two days before her sister Rachel Wee’s January nuptials, but they decided to keep the good news to themselves until after the wedding. However, it seems like her parents, beauty mogul Jean Yip and Mervin Wee, could have already seen the announcement coming.

“My dad met my gynaecologist at a wedding in late December and said, ‘My daughter will come and see you soon.’ I told him, ‘Wah, you knew I was pregnant even before I did! (Laughs)” Cheryl recounted to us over WhatsApp. She is currently around 18 weeks along, with the baby due sometime in late September.

Naturally, the couple is over the moon about the addition to their young brood, especially since they’ve always wanted their first and second kids to be close in age (Marc turns 1 this Friday) so that the older one wouldn’t be alone. That said, she clarified that while she and Roy had “a rough plan” for baby number two, they didn’t make specific arrangements down to the very last detail. “We just kind of went with the flow and tried.”

One important factor that she kept in mind was her role in Fresh! Takes short flick Soul Connection. “I wanted to try and avoid that period [of shooting] to get pregnant because I remember my morning sickness with Marc was pretty bad,” she explained.
