Fann-tastic New Mum

Fann-tastic New Mum
Celebrity couple Christopher Lee and Fann Wong at the red carpet for the Star Awards 20 Show 2. This is the first time Wong has appeared in public with her baby bump since the local showbiz A-list couple revealed to the media in early February 2014 that they are expecting their first child.

You wouldn't have been able to tell that Fann was preggers if you didn't already know about it.

Her baby bump is barely perceptible under her loose white shift, just a slight curve in her otherwise still enviably svelte silhouette when we meet her back in March.

And she's fresh-faced and alert, even at 9.30am on a Monday morning when she arrived at the studios for our cover shoot.

But there are signs. How she subconsciously cradles her tummy protectively as she putters around the studio waiting for a makeup touch-up and outfit change; how her handlers fuss over her whenever she gets a break from the flash of the photographer's lens (they bring her a stool to sit on and hydrate her with Perrier).

But most of all, there's an undercurrent of joy running through her. She's radiant, and she giggles good-naturedly every time the photographer teases her about her belly ("I feel fat!" she trills).

Yes, Fann's in a great mood, and who could blame her? This pregnancy is, after all, a blessing, albeit a slightly late one for the 43-year-old and husband Christopher Lee.

"When my doctors - who were in tears! - first confirmed the pregnancy, we were both in happy disbelief," she recalls. "Chris was like, 'Is this accurate?'... even after the blood test came back. It didn't sink in until the morning sickness started.

From then on, I was hardly out of the house, partly because I couldn't stop throwing up - I couldn't even run to the bathroom in time! Also, I became really absentminded - I'd forget things people told me within five minutes. It only started getting better recently."
