Nabil, 32, said he chose the number because it was his favourite.

“I am the younger of two siblings while Ayda has 10 siblings. If we are blessed with 13 children, it is like a dream becoming a reality.

“People say it is a blessing. But to be honest, even if we have that number of children, what is important is that they are healthy.

“(It) doesn’t matter if it is one, two or 13 children, ” he said during the launch of Ayda’s latest single Parah Parah.

Ayda said she was ready for a child.

“If there is rezeki (blessing), I am ready to be a mother. I am getting older, not any younger. We really love kids, ” she said.
