ACTRESS Fasha Sandha’s husband was so thrilled to hear that she was pregnant that he burst into happy tears.
Fasha (pic) broke the news to her actor hubby Aidil Aziz on Tuesday when he was at a studio photo-shoot and recorded his reaction, reported Harian Metro.
The video captured Aidil looking very moved and crying after finding out about the pregnancy, which is three weeks along.
The couple married about two months ago.
Fasha, 35, said that she had not yet seen a doctor for further check-ups.
The Anak Mami Kembali actress felt a change in her body as she had been nauseous of late.
She initially thought that it was a case of food poisoning. But she soon had a hunch that she was pregnant.
“The feeling that I was pregnant intensified when I felt unwell on Tuesday.
“Before going to the photo studio, I took a pregnancy test and the result was, alhamdulillah, positive,” she said.
> The widow of a fisherman shot dead by militants in southern Philippines has fallen on hard times, reported Berita Harian. Jari Abdullah, 34, was kidnapped in December last year while fishing in Pegasus Reef, Kinabatangan, with two others.
He was killed last month, leaving behind wife Nadin Junianti, 25, and three children aged between one to seven in Sim-Sim, Sandakan.
Nadin and her children are depending on Jari’s mother Zuana Laudiato, 54, who makes RM30 daily from washing clothes.
“When my husband was alive, our kids could celebrate Hari Raya with new clothes and eat delicious food like KFC. Before he was kidnapped, he promised to buy them KFC once he returned home.
“My second child keeps asking when his father would come home,” said Nadin, who could not take on a job as she had to look after her children.
