Back in March, our very own homegrown TV host Lee Teng announced that he proposed to his Taiwanese girlfriend, Gina Lin.
And their love story was such a sweet one because it was actually love at first sight.
Little Bean Sprout
In May, Lee shared with everyone that his wife was five months pregnant and even nicknamed their child Little Bean Sprout.
He posted a series of Instagram posts dedicated to their Little Bean Sprout, revealing the gender of their child and asking whether anyone has any recommendations for a good stroller because there are simply too many to choose from.
In an interview with Lianhe Zaobao in July, he revealed that they registered their marriage right here in Singapore and that his wife had gone back to Taiwan to await the delivery of their child. He would then join her over there in August.
This was also the reason why they had to celebrate Lin’s birthday apart from each other.
But it was okay because thankfully, technology exists and it allowed them to still have a virtual celebration.
Everyone was so excited for the birth of their Little Bean Sprout, but unfortunately, yesterday’s post shared by Lee was the most heartbreaking one of all.
Lee posted a black-and-white photo of their hands on Lin’s baby bump, and shared that his wife had suffered a miscarriage.
