MediaCorp artiste Kate Pang and her husband Andie Chen recently grieved over the loss of their second child, less than a month into Kate’s pregnancy.

Toggle had learnt of her pregnancy two weeks ago, but she had declined an interview as she was in the early and unstable stages of pregnancy. However, on the night of the second show of Star Awards 2015 last Sunday, the 32-year-old revealed that she had ‘lost the child’.

In an interview with Toggle over the phone yesterday, Kate explained that the couple had intended to inform everybody of their new family member, but did not expect it to “become a sad story”.

The 32-year-old also shared that her pregnancy was unexpected, as the couple had not planned for a second child.

“I was still breastfeeding and my period had stopped for a long time. However, I suddenly experienced bleeding, the same situation I had during my first pregnancy. At that moment, my sixth sense kicked in and I wondered if I was pregnant.”

In her phone call, Kate channeled her usual lively and jovial attitude, seemingly having overcome her loss.

“Nobody wished for (the miscarriage) to happen but we are not shameful that it did. Many mothers-to-be also face this issue, so I would go through this process of recovery with them,” she said.

Undergoing a medical procedure in the midst of Star Awards

Seeking medical advice about her sudden bleeding after the first show of Star Awards (two weekends ago), Kate’s doctor discovered that her foetus was not developing and the umbilical cord had already shriveled. It is suspected that it was due to a problem with the foetus’ chromosomes.

As the 32-year-old was a host for the second show of Star Awards, she had originally planned to undergo the procedure to remove the baby after the show, but was advised to do so quickly to prevent the awkward situation of bleeding while hosting.

“When I learnt that I needed the surgery, I immediately phoned Andie. Soon after, his manager called and asked if I needed any help. She told me that Andie burst into tears at the film set (after the call).”

Kate added, “I didn’t expect it to be such a big blow to him. I am someone who is better at concealing my emotions and tears from others, so I was shocked that he cried.”
