Bling Empire Star Kelly Mi Li Is Expecting Her First Child
Bling Empire star Kelly Mi Li is expecting her first baby!
The actor, film producer and entrepreneur shared the good news in an Instagram post on November 17. “Well, the mystery to why I’ve been craving sweets and not just spicy food is finally solved! We’re so beyond grateful and excited to be starting this new chapter in our lives,” Mi Li captioned the joyful photo of her holding her pregnancy test.
While Mi Li says getting pregnant was already a part of her and her boyfriend’s plan, the news still came as a surprise. “When we found out, it was actually kind of shocking. He lives in San Francisco, I live in L.A., so when my period didn’t come, the monthly visit didn’t come. So we went and got Clearblue, the pregnancy test,” Mi Li told People.
“We talked about having kids earlier, but we were going to start trying [at] the end of the year. So we actually bought a bunch of Clearblue ovulation tests before so I would start getting used to using it, but we just really didn’t think it was going to happen so fast,” she explained.
Friends, fans and fellow actors rushed to the comments to congratulate Mi Li on her happy news. Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause commented, “Omg!! Congrats!!,” while Top Gun actor Kara Wang added, “I AM SOBBING. Omg, your mom is thrilled. Every Chinese mom is thrilled.”
The second part of Mi Li’s post features a video of the 37-year-old telling her mother she was expecting. “PS: If you watch #BlingEmpire, then you know how much my mom wants to be a grandma,” she added to the post.
During season 3 of Bling Empire, Mi Li was famously on a quest for love, dating throughout the season before finding “the love of her life.”
“My boyfriend is amazing. I literally cannot ask for a better partner in this. And obviously, I’ve to show off about him any chance I get. But he’s honestly so supportive, so amazing and I honestly, he’s going to be such a great dad and obviously my mom, my grandma, are going to be able to help me out a little bit more as well,” Mi Li told People. “And I have really great friends around me so I’m just very thankful for this journey.”
Our congratulations to Mi Li on this exciting new adventure!
