Malaysian pop singer Siti Nurhaliza has become a mother with the birth of her first child, a baby girl, in Kuala Lumpur on Monday (March 19).

In a post on her Instagram profile, the 39-year-old’s manager Razi Abdul Razak said that both mother and child are fine and in good health.

“Siti and her husband Datuk Seri Khalid Mohamad Jiwa would like to say thank you for all the prayers and support from family, friends, colleagues, fans and the media throughout her pregnancy,” he said.

The couple had chosen Monday for the birth, which was done via Caesarean section, as it is the day the Prophet Muhammad was born and also the first day of the Islamic month of Rejab.

The baby was delivered at 8.17am and weighed a healthy 3.55kg.

“For now, Siti needs space to relax and focus on the early days of motherhood,” added the post, which has garnered over 17,000 comments at the time of writing.

Beliau melahirkan bayi seberat 3.55 kilogram itu secara pembedahan. Siti dan bayi berada dalam keadaan baik dan buat masa ini hanya membenarkan kaum keluarga terdekat saja untuk melawat. Suami beliau, Dato’ Sri Khalid Mohamad Jiwa melahirkan rasa syukur kerana segalanya telah selamat. Apa yang penting bagi beliau adalah proses melahirkan berjalan dengan baik, isteri dan anaknya juga sihat. Siti dan suami juga ingin mengucapkan terima kasih di atas doa dan sokongan daripada ahli keluarga, rakan-rakan, peminat dan juga pihak media sejak dari awal kehamilan sehinggalah melahirkan. Pasangan ini memilih hari Isnin untuk kelahiran anak pertama mereka kerana bersamaan dengan hari kelahiran Nabi Muhammad (Rasulullah s.a.w) selain jatuh pada tarikh 1 Rejab. Buat masa ini Siti mahu diberi ruang untuk berehat dan menumpukan perhatian pada hari-hari awal bergelar ibu. Mengenai wajah dan nama anak, Siti dan Khalid meminta diberi sedikit masa sebelum mengumumkannya. -Rozi Abdul Razak Pengurus
