According to Allkpop, her husband Rain, who is a singer and actor, has been very supportive despite his busy schedules. He’s currently recording a reality TV show The Unit, and is expected to fly home once the filming is over.

Last month, Rain completed a movie Uhm Bok Dong outside the city but was said to have always driven home to his wife on any day he didn’t have a morning schedule.

A spokesperson for Kim Tae-hee’s agency Ruach Entertainment said, “There aren’t any specific promotional activities planned in her career schedule right now.

“Kim Tae-hee’s priority is only to her baby. Currently, only family members have gathered in celebration.”

Tae-hee is considered as one of the most beautiful Korean women. She’s known for her roles in in Korean dramas such as Stairway to Heaven (2003), Love Story in Harvard (2004), Iris (2009), My Princess (2011), and Yong-pal (2015).

Rain was included in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People list in 2006 and 2011. He described his newborn daughter as a “beautiful princess”.

Kim and Rain walked down the aisle in January and announced their baby expectations in May.
