    Home-grown singer Stefanie Sun’s son was so excited about becoming an older brother that he let the news of her pregnancy slip before she could even make the official media announcements.

    “He was in the bathtub when we told him the news and he was really excited. We said, ‘Don’t tell anyone, okay? It’s a secret.’

    “When we said that, it was actually with a pinch of salt because he is just five years old. But the next day, the whole school knew about it,” she told local media with a laugh at a press conference held on Feb 9 afternoon at The Arts House.

    “I found myself a little out of breath at some of the promotional activities, so people got worried,” she said.

    “Some people suggested that I stop working because I’m pregnant, but when you have worked on an album for so long and you have new songs to share, you just want to do this. Anyway, this is my second pregnancy – can one lah.”

    It helps that her husband, Dutch-Indonesian businessman Nadim Van Der Ros, has been “extra nice and considerate” in recent weeks.

    “He offers to drive me everywhere, and does many nice things for me. Is it that difficult for him to keep this up all the time?

    “To all the dads in the audience today – can you please be good to your wife all the time, and not just when she is pregnant.”

    A version of this story first appeared in The Straits Times.
