KUALA LUMPUR: Besides counting down the days to the release of Munafik 2, award-winning director Syamsul Yusof and his actress wife Puteri Sarah Liyana are also anticipating a new addition to their family.

Sarah recently revealed that she was five weeks pregnant.

She told reporters this at the launch event of Mutyara, a jamu drink by Tya Arifin in WowKL, here recently.

The news comes as a blessing for Sarah who said that she and Syamsul have been trying for another baby ever since their son Syaikhul Islam turned 11 months last March.

“Initially the doctor told us to wait until my son is a little older, but seeing that I’m already 33, we didn’t want to wait much longer to expand our family,” she said.

That being said, her doctor had advised her to avoid lifting heavy things.

“I have yet to experience any morning sickness but then again, I’m still in the early stages of pregnancy,” she added.

Sarah and Syamsul tied the knot on March 8, 2014.
