Taiwanese actress Sonia Sui has put on 10kg since her pregnancy, but the 7-months pregnant star still looked every bit a model save for a burgeoning belly, with her still-lithe figure and slender limbs.

Sonia appeared at an event recently - her last media appearance before giving birth, and spoke openly about her pregnancy journey.

Sonia said even though she has a huge appetite now, she has only put on about 10kg so far as she still manages to squeeze in 1.5-hour workouts daily.

The actress, who married American-Chinese businessman Tony Xie earlier this year after dating for only four months, says she plans to give birth and stay a month in Singapore for her confinement.

According to Asian Pop News via Apple Daily and China News, she told the media: "It's quieter over there (with no paparazzi). Tony said it is also close to Taiwan, and the people there are able to speak both English and Mandarin," said Sonia.

And Sonia needn't fret about not getting enough attention after giving birth, as her husband has reassured her that "the baby won't come between us, our relationship is still important".

Sonia herself is "going with the flow" when it comes to child-rearing, and has confessed to not having read any books on the topic, leaving her husband to do the job. However, she concedes that she will likely be the "fiercer" parent. "If my child falls down, I will expect him to pick himself and not cry and demand to be carried," said Sonia, prompting her husband to exclaim, "you're too cruel!" and comments that she is a "Tiger Mum-to-be".
