Let’s be frank here, a child brings great joy to people’s lives, but at the same time, a child is also a real huge commitment. That’s why some married couples hesitate on having one, and plan ahead.
Actress-singer Siti Elizad Sharifuddin and her husband, Shamsul Baharin Rahman, recently celebrated their 8th year of marriage. The Malaysian couple have been longing to expand their family, but unfortunately, things have not gone as intended.
Recently, the 37-year-old entertainer posted a picture of her and her husband on her personal Instagram to celebrate their anniversary. In the caption, she wrote, “Every anniversary I would always say “God willing, it’ll be the three of us on the next anniversary,” but I think I can start changing that (statement).” Those who aren’t familiar with Elizad’s journey might assume that they are already blessed with a child after trying for 8 years.
Unfortunately, Elizad stated that the both of them have already accepted their fate at this point. If they’re blessed with children, it would be nice. But if they’re not, then it would be just like what Elizad wrote at the end of her caption, “Happy honeymoon forever. Just the two of us.”
She told mStar it’s been getting quite stressful to keep on trying every single year, “I’m tired of thinking about it, (I’m) not getting younger so I don’t want to get too stressed out about it, (I) just want to relax and chill.” Although, that does not mean she is giving up on trying for a baby.
The Sinar FM radio DJ had tried various methods before, including IVF in November 2020, but regrettably had a miscarriage after a week of pregnancy. She also shared with mStar that she once asked her husband whether if he was open to polygamy and marry another woman to have kids. But her husband loyally declined and said that not being able to have kids isn’t a problem as he had two kids from his previous marriage.
We hope they have years of blissful marriage ahead and are blessed with a bundle of joy some time in the near future!
