Shum announced the pregnancy via Instagram in November 2018. The Crazy Rich Asians actor cradled his wife’s baby bump in a pic while she looked surprised. He left the post captionless.

Rabara shared a series of photos from the same shoot on her own Instagram account at the time. In one shot, she held her belly, and in another, Shum joined her as they beamed with joy.

The Shadowhunters star reflected on the milestone as 2018 came to a close. “Hibernation is almost complete. Thank you for a year to remember,” he wrote on Instagram in December. “A phenomenal 12 months with experiences beyond my wildest dreams. Celebrating the end of year with natural confetti! Thanks for the memories 2018!”

He added in another post, in which he posed with the then-pregnant actress: “This was pretty cool too …”

Rabara celebrated the new year by dancing in an Instagram video. “Body rolling while pregnant, ladies,” she said while stroking her bump. She added in her caption: “#bodyrollingrollingwhilepregnantishard.”

The dancer took her burgeoning belly to the studio in January, writing: “Baby Bump’s 1st recording session.”

Shum and Rabara married in Costa Rica in November 2015. His Glee costars Amber Riley, Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz were in attendance.

The couple began dating in 2006. They announced their engagement in March 2014 after he popped the question during a Hawaiian vacation.
