14 Sep – After more than a month in observation, Shuib Sepahtu revealed that he was finally able to hold his newborn baby, Ayash Affan.
The comedian shared the good news on his 37th birthday on 12 September, likening the news to the best birthday gift from God.
"Praise be to God," he posted in another Instagram Story as a message to his late wife Siti Sarah. "I'm going to see Ayash Affan today. I still remember what you said many times, "You should take care of our fourth child. You have to do it. You care for him, okay?"
"God willing, my love, I will take care of him just like I cared for you, so that he will become a good son, a son that you will be proud of, a son who will be close to God. Please pray for me, as it's still a long way for me. Pray that I will continue to be strong. I love you."
Shuib lost his wife, Siti Sarah, back in early August, after Sarah had to be placed into a medically-induced coma following an emergency cesarean procedure to save her child while she was battling COVID-19.
The said child, named Ayash Affan by the late singer herself, had since been under observation after being born a month early.
