TV star cou­ple ex­pect­ing first child

New Straits Times - - Entertainment -

SOME celebri­ties keep their preg­nancy news un­der wraps un­til much later, or un­til the baby bump shows.

But, for ac­tor Amar Ba­harin and his ac­tress wife, Amyra Rosli, they have de­cided to an­nounce the news on so­cial me­dia as soon as it was con­firmed by doc­tors.

Amyra, 26, who tied the knot with Amar, 31, in Novem­ber last year, is seven weeks’ preg­nant.

“I don’t see the point in hid­ing it,” said Amar at the launch of Astro’s new drama slots at Saloma Bistro in Jalan Am­pang re­cently.

Fol­low­ing their an­nounce­ment, Amar said he was sur­prised to re­ceive of­fers by those seek­ing ex­clu­sive rights to pub­lish pho­tos of the baby once born.

“It was over­whelm­ing. But, I told them that for now, my fo­cus is on Amyra’s preg­nancy.

“Amyra ac­tu­ally showed some preg­nancy symp­toms ear­lier, but we didn’t re­ally think too much of them, un­til Tues­day night when she com­plained of tummy ache.

“So, I brought her to Gle­nea­gles Am­pang for an ul­tra­sound scan. Then, we heard what sounded like the baby’s heart­beat. We were so over­joyed at that mo­ment, and at the same time, very thank­ful for this bless­ing.”

Since Amyra is still in the early stages of preg­nancy, she has been ad­vised to get as much rest as pos­si­ble.

“Amyra is a worka­holic. I keep telling her to rest, but she will only lis­ten to doc­tors’ ad­vice,” said Amar.

The cou­ple had planned to take a break af­ter film­ing for tele­vi­sion drama se­ries Jadikan Aku Yang Ke­dua, and TV shows, such as Ex­peRIAnce: Pro­jek Theme Park and Ro­man­tika, wrapped up.

Amar said Amyra’s work sched­ule, in­clud­ing host­ing the weekly Muzik Muzik chart show would be re­vised and min­imised, at least un­til af­ter the first trimester.

Jadikan Aku Yang Ke­dua marks the cou­ple’s de­but play­ing on-screen lovers af­ter get­ting mar­ried. He plays teacher Thaqif, who is forced to marry his for­mer stu­dent, Nuha (Amyra Rosli), fol­low­ing his wife’s death af­ter giv­ing birth to twins.

Pre­vi­ously, Amar and Amyra had starred to­gether in Cik Bunga En­cik Som­bong and Suamiku En­cik So­tong.

Jadikan Aku Yang Ke­dua airs ev­ery Mon­day to Wed­nes­day at 9pm be­gin­ning April 3 on Astro Oa­sis (Astro Chan­nel 106) and Maya HD (Astro Chan­nel 135).
