The Project SuperStar alums met on the reality programme in 2005 and got hitched in 2009.

Toh revealed that she had a "tough" first trimester and was "really sick", but she did not go into details.

When she was 36 weeks pregnant, she suffered from backaches, shortness of breath, fatigue, frequent urination, heartburn, insomnia, along with swollen limbs due to water retention.

She quipped that being pregnant with Azalea was "so different" as she did not have water retention and could "still walk gracefully like a normal human being".

In comparison, she felt that she walked like a "penguin (or) duck" this time around.

"Does age really make that much of a difference?" she questioned.
