TAIPEI - Taiwanese actress Sonia Sui, who is seven months pregnant, said she plans to give birth and spend her confinement period in Singapore.

"It's quieter there, and close to Taiwan, and the bilingual environment there allows for communication so Tony will not feel any pressure, " she said at an event in Taiwan on Wednesday, referring to her English-educated husband named Tony.

Sui, 34, said she has had gynaecological check-ups several times in Singapore and does not intend for their child to take up Singapore citizenship, China Times reported.

They married in Las Vegas in January after a four-month romance. She confirmed her pregnancy in May. Tony's stepmother is singer Tammy Darshana Lai and he is said to be a University of California, Los Angeles graduate who works in finance.
