Big congratulations are in order for S.H.E’s Selina Jen who’s expecting her first child with her non-showbiz boyfriend. The 41-year-old pop star shared the news of her pregnancy when talking about her annual plans on her podcast Ying Ren Er Jie (迎任而解). She said, “I, Selina Ren Jiaxuan, I’m pregnant!”
The soon-to-be mother also revealed how she found out she was pregnant with “little Cashew” as they’ve taken to call the little bub. Selina got around to testing after she felt unwell from staying up all night for New Year’s Eve. When those two lines appeared, she even questioned whether her eyesight was that bad. She said after ringing her boyfriend and asking him to buy her more pregnancy tests from other brands, she was so excited she burst into tears. “I’m gonna be a mum!” She said they still don’t know the gender of the baby.
Last year, the singer finally went public with her blossoming relationship with her new man whom she confirmed was seven years younger. Although she was thrown off by their age difference at the beginning, things between them worked out after all. Then on Valentine’s day this year, she finally shared a photo with him (although she did make sure to protect his identity with a smiley emoji). Prior to this, Selina was previously married to lawyer Richard Chang. The marriage unfortunately didn’t last and ended in divorce in 2016 although the two maintain a good relationship with each other now.
