    Then, “on the night of my costume fitting, I discovered I was pregnant” with her first child, the 45-year-old actress revealed in the show.

    Her husband Max was so happy that he “couldn’t sleep the whole night”, she recalled.

    According to AsiaOne, Ada was 38 then. Pregnancy at an older age can come with higher risks and her miscarriage had happened just six months earlier.

    She thought of pulling out of the palace drama to prepare for the birth.

    But she decided to proceed, given that her empress role required her to be mainly seated and that her character would be assisted by palace maids in other activities.

    She even kept her pregnancy a secret from others in the show, to avoid distractions on the set and work disruptions.
