And baby makes three.

Barely a month after Hong Kong actor Ruco Chan's wedding to TVB actress Phoebe Sin, the pair have announced that they are expecting a baby.

A photo uploaded to their Instagram accounts show the announcement spelled out using wedding bands and wooden letter tiles: "Ruco, Phoebe, Baby is coming", to the delight of fans. 

Addressing his unborn child, the 41-year-old actor wrote on Saturday (Nov 10): "2018 is an unforgettable year. I've gained another status! Looking forward to your arrival."

The baby is expected to arrive next year, which will be the year of the pig, according to the Chinese lunar calendar.

In a lengthy post the next day (Nov 11), Chan reflected on a year "where many unhappy things happened". He also apologised for the unexpected marriage announcement, which took many by surprise. 

2018真的發生很多不快和不如意之事!無論是工作和心情, 但老天爺永遠都有最好的安排給我。之前努力工作忽略和家人的相處!今年感恩我有很多的時間陪伴家人,讓我可以好好處理所有問題。也很感恩能遇上太太能順利完成我們的人生大事。我知道我的婚訊,會令到很多支持朋友和我的鹏友仔有很多不同的想法,令大家感到突然!我在此說聲對不起。雖然我沒有能力改變大家的想法!但我會不忘初衷,大家是從我的工作認識到我,所以未來我會更加努力,我不會忘記這二十多個年頭大家對我的支持和欣賞!因為是妳們把我變得更精彩更有信心。祝願我們能友誼永

"I'm thankful that I got to meet and marry my wife. I know many of you had different opinions about our marriage, and many felt it was too sudden! I apologise."

He continued: "Today, I can finally share my happiness with my fans. My baby is here. This makes this year the biggest improvement  in my life, and I hope everyone can share my joy!"

On her Instagram post, Sin, 28, simply wrote: "Looking forward to your arrival, little piglet".
