Lee Teng and his wife, Gina Lin, have lost their baby six months into Gina’s pregnancy.

The Singapore-based Taiwanese host revealed the devastating news on Instagram early this morning (Jul 28), posting a black and white photo of their hands cradling Gina’s baby bump.

He wrote: “I wish to apologise to everyone. It’s a pity that ‘Little Bean Sprout’ will not be able to meet you. He quietly came and left. Gina and I are grieving. As a mother, this is a very difficult time for Gina.

“My wife and I are deeply saddened by the loss. Pardon us if we are not able to reply any messages at the moment. Please give us some time and space to overcome this plight. In the meantime, stay safe and take care.”

深夜和朋友聊天,感嘆大家都快沒工作,也不能出去玩,什麼都做不了,感到好無奈。又不時看新聞報導還是有人群聚集在外面,真是為他們擔憂。想想我們音樂人朋友之間到底能做些什麼?幾通簡訊後,在一個小時內大家都義不容辭立馬答應,我們的#stayathome movement 就這樣一夜間誕生了。大家都各自在家裡自拍影片,有默契,認真又搞笑,各種花招都拿出來,又在同一天完成剪接這個影片!The message is clear.. no? 感謝 @stefsunyanzi @jjlin 和陳潔儀!難得咱們可以隔空有這樣深具意義的合作。很是感動。凝聚一份力量希望能起一些微薄的效用。Let’s do this together! #stayathome #please #乖 #seriously #doitforyourselfandforothers #flattenthecurve #在家無聊會做的事 #friendscometogether #JKST #weareapartbutcloseatheart #第一次當剪接師老花眼變更嚴重
