Former Russian beauty queen Oksana Voevodina who reportedly married Malaysia’s former Agong (King) Sultan Muhammad V, is said to be expecting.
The 25-year-old converted to Islam in April 2018 allegedly married the 49-year-old monarch in November 2018. However, there is no official confirmation regarding their marriage.
According to The Sun, news about the pregnancy was first reported by Russia’s biggest-selling newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda (KP).
The tabloid cited anonymous sources who claimed, “The couple is expecting their first baby and has fully devoted themselves to the future offspring.”
The newspaper also said that the beauty queen fell pregnant after the new couple went to a German family planning clinic shortly after their wedding.
The report of the pregnancy comes just 2 days after the Malaysian royal shockingly announced his abdication after only 2 years on the throne.

Malaysia's king, Sultan Muhammad V, has unexpectedly abdicated in an historic first. No Malaysian monarch has stepped away from the throne since the country gained independence from the UK more than 60 years ago. The National Palace did not give a reason for his resignation but said it would take effect immediately. #Malaysia #MalaysiaKing #Malaysian #MalaysianMonarch #Russian #SultanMuhammadV https://www.greetingsmedia.com/index.php/2019/01/07/malaysia-king-sultan-muhammad-v-abdicates-in-historic-first/ADVERTISEMENT
No official reason was given on his abdication, but rumours have linked his so-called secret marriage to Oksana to be the reason, but legal experts in Malaysia debunk the rumours afterwards.
