Popular film director Yusry Abdul Halim has confirmed that his wife, actress Lisa Surihani, is pregnant.
However, he refused to divulge any details about the pregnancy for now.
"We are heeding the advice of our elders that if the pregnancy is still new, it is not advisable to tell others about it.
"However, as there has been much speculation, we decided to announce it," he said in a report by Kosmo!.
Yusry said the couple would share more information when the time is right.
This will be the couple's first child after they married in February 2012.
Lisa said she was thankful to all who had prayed for her and said she had no intention of hiding the good news from her fans.
"The pregnancy is still very early and I do not know how to tell everyone.
"That is why I left it to Yusry to make the announcement," she said.
