Singer Elizabeth Tan has recently opened up about her plans on expanding her family after officially tying the knot with her beau back in March last year. To quote the local artiste, she and her husband, Ding Siew Jim, are planning to conceive their first ever newborn by the end of this year.
In case you don’t know, Elizabeth (or Lizzy in short) married her non-celebrity partner on 20th March 2021 in a private ceremony which took place in a church in Gombak. They held their wedding reception on 13th February 2022. The couple have been living a happily married life since then, as seen in the celeb’s several postings on her official IG.
In regards to their pregnancy plans, Lizzy said they initially planned to conceive their first ever baby earlier in July. “All of a sudden, I received a handful of job offers. So we had to move it to the next month (August),” she told Gempak. “However, due to my tight working schedules, the plan has since been postponed until October.”
The “Knock Knock” singer added, “Though, it’s difficult to decide on whether I’m already prepared to enter the parenthood phase. I know that I have to sacrifice a large part of my career if I want to become a mom. After becoming a mother, the characters offered may be more or less different. So, I will be taking this whole year to mentally prepare myself.”
“Furthermore, as a woman, we have our own biological clock. Since I will be turning 30 next year, the doctors have also advised me to get pregnant before the age of 35 to prevent the baby from developing autism. Therefore, we will try to head in ‘that direction’ at the end of this year,” the 29-year-old added.
Hopefully, everything will go as planned for the couple.
