ACTRESS Rafidah Ibrahim’s dream of becoming a mother is once again shattered after she suffered a second miscarriage, reported Kosmo!
The 36-year-old, who has acted in Adik Manja Returns and Man Sewel Datang KL, shared the news on Instagram.
“Last Friday, before maghrib prayers, the child in my womb, Abdullah Shahzemir, whom I had been carrying for four months and seven days, was lost.
“That day, I had been having an ache in the lower abdomen area since 5pm. I thought it was only bloating.
“Before performing my ablutions, it felt painful, as if something was trying to come out of me,” she said.
Rafidah said she immediately called for her husband to tell him about the problem. She was told to let the fetus come out on its own.
“The fetus came out of me on my hands. I felt a little movement before my husband cut the umbilical cord.
“I panicked and I wanted to cry but when I held the ‘baby’, all praise went to Allah SWT, the beautiful creation of Allah,” she said.
“I let him go although only Allah knows how painful it was for me,” she wrote.
Rafidah, who was later taken to a hospital for treatment, said she was extremely happy to have held her baby.
She also shared a video of her baby’s funeral beside the graves of her parents at the Ampang Islamic Cemetery.
Rafidah, who is a cousin to songstress Datuk Seri Siti Nurhaliza, suffered her first miscarriage in November last year.
> Harian Metro reported that the two-year relationship between actress Alya Iman and widower and father of two, Ridhwan Rosli, is over.
However, Alya, whose real name is Nur Alya Iman Azmil, said they remained good friends, and that she preferred the single life.
“Yes, I am ‘single’ and I have nothing to do with Ridhwan anymore. We are, however, still good friends.
“But I’m ‘not available’ – not because there is a replacement but because I want to focus on my career.
“I don’t even feel like wanting to be in a relationship,” she said, adding that she had been separated from Ridhwan since Ramadan.
Alya, who was previously engaged to a married man before breaking up and parting ways, had been criticised and called a “gold digger” and “hijacker”.
