MANDOPOP singer Shila Amzah (pic) announced she is expecting her first child.
She made the announcement at the 2019 Malaysia China Spring Festival Carnival at Dataran Merdeka on Saturday.
“I have a baby now!” she happily exclaimed.
Sin Chew Daily reported that rumours about the 28-year-old singer’s pregnancy started in mid-January when a photo of her looking “pregnant” was circulated on social media.
She confirmed her pregnancy after being asked by the emcees at the carnival.
Shila married Haris Idraki Elias who worked in the financial sector in London in April last year.
She is the daughter of 1980s singer N.D. Lala.
She first came under the spotlight in 2007 when she emerged the runner-up in local reality talent series One in a Million.
Shila gained international fame after taking part in two singing competitions in China – Asian Wave in 2012 and I Am a Singer in 2014.
> Fans were in awe of Hong Kong actress Carina Lau Kar-ling’s “great figure” when the photograph of her in a swimsuit made the rounds on social media, Oriental Daily reported.
They claimed that Lau is a “goddess” that never grows old.
In the photo Lau was seen wearing a black one-piece swimsuit, draped with a shirt, while wearing sunglasses.
Her fair long legs stole the limelight.
Fans left comments such as “This age, this figure, I’m jealous”, “Definitely a teenager” and “Her figure is really good!” on her picture.

> A man in Beijing, China got a shock while surfing the Internet when he found his daughter posing semi-nude with a man.
China Press reported that the girl was only wearing see-through lacy underwear and her male companion was seen hugging her from behind while taking a mirror selfie of them.
The middle-aged father fumed and demanded for a clarification.
His daughter denied such a picture but he wanted her to “bring him back home” to see him.
But the giveaway was that the girl apologised to her father.
“Father, I’m sorry”, which indirectly admitted she was the person in the photo.
The screencap of the conversation went viral when the daughter posted it on social media, seeking help from the public on how to settle the issue.
