It was a special Thanksgiving for Hong Kong celebrity couple Kevin Cheng and Grace Chan.

The newlyweds, who tied the knot in Bali three months ago, shared that they will be expecting a baby in 2019.

Chan, 27, wrote on Instagram Thursday (Nov 22): "Thanksgiving is about celebrating and being grateful for all that we have.

"So on this special occasion, my husband and I are excited to share one of the biggest gifts that God has blessed us with... We're having a BABY!

"Though we have so much to learn about being parents, we promise to do our very best to take care of the newest addition to our family!"

Cheng, 49, also posted a similar message on Instagram in Chinese.

The couple did not give further details on the pregnancy or when the baby is due, but their 22-year age gap may have spurred their decision to have a baby as soon as possible, reported Jayne Stars.

It looks like the happy parents-to-be may be able to glean some tips from fellow TVB actors Ruco Chan and Phoebe Sin, following their pregnancy announcement just last month.
