When Malaysian pop diva Siti Nurhaliza discovered that she was pregnant last year, she made sure she had plenty of rest, including using a wheelchair to move around at home. She did not want to take any chances.
Married in 2006, she and her husband, businessman Khalid Mohamad Jiwa were devastated when she suffered a miscarriage in 2015.
Yesterday, at 8.17am and after waiting for more than 11 years to start a family, she finally became a mother. According to a post on her Instagram account, the 39-year-old gave birth to a girl weighing 3.55kg, via caesarean section. The post, made by her manager, said both mother and baby are in good health, reported The Star.
