Gigi Leung and Sergio announced that they are expecting a child together. Her newborn will be her first child.
Gigi and Sergio married each other in Spain in October of 2011, reports Jpopasia.
Ever since becoming husband and wife, the two have wanted to start a family together, but have experienced difficulties doing so.
"For a long time, my husband and I have tried unsuccessfully [to conceive]. I wanted to give up, but Sergio told me to relax and go on a vacation. Three weeks after returning from our trip, I found out I was pregnant. I'm very thankful," Gigi said.
The couple first found out they would be expecting a child in July; however, they decided to wait until the pregnancy was at a more stable stage before going public with it.
Rumors have been circulating for weeks that the actress was pregnant. Gigi has begun showing, making it difficult to keep the pregnancy secret any longer.
"It's hard to avoid nervousness and expectations the first time. We have to learn more and grow. Thank you everyone for your love and concern. We to be able to bring you happiness and joy, and continue to offer our love," she said.
