Actress Yvonne Lim. Alex Tien (inset, right) proposed to Yvonne Lim in March, after just six months of dating.

Don't be surprised if Yvonne Lim has a bun in her oven even before she walks down the aisle.

By her own admission, she is ready to have babies - in fact, "anytime now".

The 37-year-old local MediaCorp actress looked sprightly as most brides-to-be would be at Tuesday's press conference of upcoming Channel 8 football-themed drama series World At Your Feet.

She told The New Paper that she and her fiance adore kids so much that they are "already letting nature take its course".

The groom is former Taiwanese boy band B.A.D member-turned-businessman Alex Tien.

Tien, 34, proposed to Lim in March, after just six months of dating.

"I know Alex will be a very reliable, responsible father figure from the way he loves animals," she said with a grin.

"He keeps two stray dogs at home, and rescued another from a pet shop before it was about to be put down.

"Ultimately, it depends on divine providence how many children we can have. Of course, I hope I don't disappoint."

Lim plays ageing penniless footballer Tay Ping Hui's embittered wife in World At Your Feet, which premieres on May 14 at 9pm.

Her latest TV role is a far cry from the blushing bride she'll be playing in real life soon.

She added that she was "a little surprised" when Tien popped the question during her cover shoot for fashion magazine Nu You in Singapore.

"I thought he would be more reserved and apprehensive about getting hitched, especially after his first (failed) marriage," she said.

"But I know he followed his heart, as this just feels so right. Anyway, his past is past, what's important is that we are really happy together.

"When he got down on bended knee, it caught me off guard. I got all emotional and cried."

Tien married Taiwanese model Sharon Hsu in 2009. The former couple, who have no kids, announced their amicable divorce last November.

If you don't recognise Tien from his heyday as a Mandopop idol, don't worry.

Lim readily agrees with viewers who watched Star Awards Show 2 on April 27 that her beau had piled on the pounds over the years.
