SINGAPORE - Singer Stefanie Sun is pregnant again.

The Singaporean singer is expecting her second child with her Dutch-Indonesian husband, Nadim van der Ros, with a due date in July.

The 39-year-old confirmed her pregnancy by posting a selfie on her Instagram page on Thursday (Jan 25), with the caption: "Yes, I am now as fat as two people."

The couple, who were married in 2011, have a five-year-old son together.

Rumours surfaced early this month that Sun had become pregnant in October, but was unaware of it then, according to Lianhe Zaobao.

In November, after she caught a cold and cancelled an autograph session in Taiwan, she took to Instagram to shut down baby rumours.

She found out that she was expecting only after she felt unwell during her publicity tour of Taiwan, but decided to announce it to the public only after the first trimester, Zaobao said.

In a statement released on Facebook on Thursday, MAKE/MUSIC and Universal Music Group thanked fans and the media for their "concern and well wishes as we count down to the arrival of the baby". 

"We would appreciate if fans and media alike can give Yanzi and her family the privacy they enjoy," the statement added. 

Sun declined to speak to the media, but her publicist told The Straits Times that the singer is "in good spirits", and will complete all ongoing promotional activities for her latest album A Dancing Van Gogh across Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia until February. 

The gender of the baby is not yet known because Sun is still in the "initial stages" of her pregnancy, but she has already gained 2kg so far.
