ACTRESS and singer Ayda Jebat (pic) has sparked speculation that she might be expecting her first child with her husband, television presenter Nabil Mahir, after posting a cryptic tweet about being grateful, Kosmo! reported.
“Alhamdullilah. I am thankful for your sustenance (rezeki), ” she wrote on Twitter.
Nabil further fuelled the speculation after he posted his spontaneous reaction in an Insta-Story last Monday, as if he had been pressing his ear against Ayda’s stomach.
“There are a lot of sounds, ” he quipped.
However, the couple remained tight-lipped over the matter and have yet to issue any official statement.
It is understood that Ayda, whose real name is Nur Suhada Jebat, went for a medical check-up at a private hospital in Kuala Lumpur.
Confirming the speculation, a source said Ayda was pregnant but declined to reveal how far along she was in her pregnancy.
The source said the couple, who tied the knot on Jan 1 at Masjid At-Taqwa, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, were not prepared to make an official announcement yet as it was still too early.
Nabil previously joked that he wanted 13 children but he later clarified that the number 13 was just his favourite number.
> Harian Metro reported that singer Datin Alyah Abu Hasan threatened to block those leaving negative comments on her social media accounts.
Alyah said she had received snarky comments when she uploaded a photo of her with her husband, music director Datuk Ramli MS.
“If I do not post any photo with my husband, I will be accused of all sorts of things.
“But when I uploaded on Instagram, they would say something else – what do netizens actually want?” she said.
The singer of the song Meluruh said she would immediately block accounts that left negative comments.
“I don’t understand those with bad intentions. I am only sharing happy moments and I am thankful for that, ” she said, adding that she did not think she was “disturbing anyone”.
“If you want to criticise, insult or chide me on another platform, I don’t care but when you go to my Instagram and make such comments and you don’t even know the real story behind it, it means that you are intruding into my ‘house’.
“And you are causing trouble. Do you think I will remain silent?” she asked.
“I will throw hot water at this kind of people. I want to teach them some manners when they come to people’s house.”
