Siti keen to have children

By JOE LEE

KUALA LUMPUR: Pop queen Datuk Siti Nurhaliza Tarudin, who is often asked if she is pregnant, is seeing specialists.
Almost a year after her extravagant wedding to businessman Datuk Khalid Muahamad Jiwa, Siti said she is seeking expert advice and “leaving the rest to fate”.

“It used to be a burden to keep hearing the same question, but I suppose I’m getting used to it,” she said.

“All I can say is I am seeing specialists to get advice and the rest, we’ll have to leave it to God.” Siti said she can’t wait to have her own children.

“Some people wait three or four years, some even six or seven years. I hope I don’t have to wait that long.” On her marriage to Khalid, she said it has been good.

“My life is calmer now. Our journey together has only been for almost a year, and we’re learning many things about each other with each passing day. Things like mutual respect and understanding are vital and so far, so good.” Siti said marriage has taught her to appreciate and manage time.

“My life is a lot more meaningful now.” On where they would be celebrating their fi rst anniversary, Siti let out a laugh and shrugged her shoulders.

“I don’t know if there are any plans, but whatever it is, let it be a surprise.” Rumour has it that the couple will be taking some precious time off their busy schedules for a romantic getaway planned by Khalid to Bali.

Coincidentally, Siti’s calendar for August is less packed than the other months.

“So far I have only one show, and that’s only because of an endorsement. I’ll leave the plans to Datuk K,” she said with a grin.
