After much speculation, Jennifer Shum recently announced that she is pregnant with her first child.

On 9 May, the actress shared the good news on social media with photos of her celebrating Mother’s Day, writing, “Shhh!! It’s no longer a secret anymore! There’s really a 5 months old baby nudging me inside my tummy.”

“Husband and I cannot be grateful, happy, lucky enough to meet our little-mini-we in less than 5 months time. Possibly the most precious gift for us this year, and we are truly excited to become parents. We wish all the mums, mummy-to-be a wonderful Mother’s Day today,” she added.

Jennifer and Kelvin are thrilled to be parents very soon

Jennifer set tongues wagging back in April, when her character Icy in TVB’s “Come Home Love” suddenly decided to return to the US to visit her relatives. Netizens speculated that her sudden disappearance from the show could mean that she is taking a break due to her pregnancy.

The actress tied the knot with non-showbiz boyfriend Kelvin Cheung in November last year.
