Patty Hou and her surprise pregnancy
Taiwanese host Patty Hou attended the opening ceremony of a new luxury boutique in Taipei yesterday, making it her first public appearance after announcing her pregnancy last weekend.
The 36-year-old, who is currently two months pregnant, thanked the media for their well wishes and said: “Actually, this baby is an ‘accident’. I hadn’t been feeling well and I didn’t expect that to be morning sickness! My husband and in-laws are really happy!”
Although pregnant women are advised against holding sharp objects such as scissors, Patty broke the taboo by taking part in the ribbon cutting ceremony while wearing her three-inch heels.
Speaking to reporters at the event, Patty shared that she has started reading parenting books and that her banker husband, Ken Huang, has become very caring towards her.
“I’d like to advise all men to dote on your pregnant wives, and to be more attentive during this process,” said the mum-to-be.
Pregnancy also seemed to have whipped up Patty’s appetite. “I love carbohydrate-laden food, and fruits such as guava and apple. I can eat five pieces of sushi at one go!” she laughed. “I heard avocado is good for me, so I’ve been eating more of that as well.”
Additionally, Patty let on that her due date is in September and that her husband is hoping for a baby girl, as “his family is all made up of boys”.
