Fouziah thrilled to have an­other bun in the oven

New Straits Times - - Entertainmentt - Bibi Nur­shuhada Ramli By

is al­ways a bless­ing when pleas­ant dreams come true.

Ac­tress-host Fouziah Gous did not think any­thing of her hus­band’s dream that she was preg­nant with their sec­ond child.

But the cou­ple was de­light­fully sur­prised to learn that she was ex­pect­ing and al­ready seven weeks preg­nant.

“Al­though I ex­pe­ri­enced the tell-tale symp­toms, my first test turned out neg­a­tive,” said Fouziah re­cently at the launch of TV3’s and TV9’s Ra­madan pro­gramme lineup at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur.

“I went to see a spe­cial­ist and was told that I had gas­tri­tis.”

But Fouziah was skep­ti­cal since the symp­toms she expe- ri­enced were sim­i­lar to that of when she was preg­nant with her first­born, Muham­mad Zee­shan.

A sec­ond check-up con­firmed her sus­pi­cion. Now 15 weeks on, her preg­nancy is on the right track but she re­veals that her ap­petite has gone hay­wire.

“I didn’t have any prob­lems with my food in­take, but these days, I just don’t know what to eat some­times.

“Some days I don’t even eat any­thing till evening. I’m also al­ler­gic to cer­tain ingredients, and I now have a sweet tooth and crave cold drinks. It’s so weird!” she said.

Mean­while, Zee­shan, 1, has been ex­tra clingy to her these days, pre­fer­ring her over her hus­band, Md Zhafran Md Yu­sof, whom she mar­ried i n Septem­ber 2013.

“It’s like he knows that he’ll soon have a sib­ling,” said the 35-year-old, who is of Pak­istani, Malay and Chi­nese de­scent.

The cou­ple is not par­tic­u­lar about the sex of their new baby but Fouziah, who starred in the drama Sutera Maya and the film Otai, hopes to have an­other boy.

“When my fa­ther died in 2012, I saw how my four brothers took re­spon­si­bil­ity for his fu­neral. It was a touch­ing sight and I’ve since thought of how great it would be to have many sons,” she said.

Fouziah said her pas­sion for act­ing had waned af­ter get­ting preg­nant with Zee­shan.

Since then, she had only starred in one drama, Aku Di

Sisimu, for TV1 and filmed a trav­el­ogue with her fam­ily.

“I did get of­fers but turned them down as they weren’t suit­able, and the long pe­ri­ods of film­ing would have kept me away from my fam­ily,” said Fouziah, who is busy with her on­line busi­ness, Fg Walet Bird Nest By Fouziah Gous.

She has re­cently opened Gym FDM, a gym­na­sium in Bukit Je­lu­tong, which fo­cuses on Muay Thai.

“It’s not only great for self­de­fence but for health as well. I rec­om­mend it!” she said of the com­bat sport that she pas­sion­ately prac­tices her­self.

Ac­tress Fouziah Gous says her preg­nancy is on the right track.
