Lea Salonga expecting her first baby

11/07/2005 at 06:02 AM ET

Actress and singer Lea Salonga and husband Robert Chieng are expecting their first child in July 2006.  Lea used to be on As the World Turns and is perhaps best known for her Tony award winning performance as Kim in Broadway’s Miss Saigon and as a singing voice in Disney’s Mulan and Aladdin.  She is scheduled to perform at Carnegie Hall tonight and in concert in Manila in January 2006.

Her friends are predicting that the baby is a girl (it’s still too early for an ultrasound) because Lea is looking lovelier and glowing lately, which, according to Pilipino belief,  is a sign that an expectant mother is carrying a girl.
