Three’s a party for newlyweds Ruco Chan and Phoebe Sin, who announced that they were expecting their first child yesterday (November 11) via social media.
The couple shared the good news on their respective social media pages, with a picture spelling out their names, as well as the message, “Baby is coming”. The creative announcement, which was made using scrabble letter tiles, as well as their wedding bands to spell out the letter O in their names, garnered praise from netizens.
In his post, Ruco added, “2018 is really an unforgettable year, and I’ll be taking on another role! Anticipating your arrival,” in his caption.
The 41-year-old also made an appearance at a event that very evening, where he shared more about their bundle of joy.
Ruco shared that he felt excited by the sudden surprise, and that the couple had realised that Phoebe was expecting during their pre-wedding photoshoot in England.
He revealed that he feels that kids are a gift from the heavens, saying, “We hid the news from everyone at first, as the older generation was against it”, referring to the widely-held belief that one should not announce her pregnancy until the first trimester is over.
According to Ruco, Phoebe is currently three months pregnant, and that her baby bump is visible. The expected due date for their first child will be in April or May next year, and Phoebe will be giving birth in Hong Kong.
Ruco also shared that his parents were already over the moon when he tied the knot, and that the news of Phoebe’s pregnancy was a welcome surprise. When asked if Phoebe will retire from showbiz to focus on raising their child, Ruco replied, “It’s up to her, I know that she wants to (continue) working.”
The couple tied the knot in October this year.
