Soap star Zaskia said she will observe the Islamic fasting month even if she is seven months pregnant.
Fasting is not normally advised for pregnant women, but the 22-year-old remains undaunted.
She said that she could provide plenty of nutrition for her baby by simply changing her eating schedule. “I’m still active. I work every day, so I think I can manage it. I trust that my baby is going to be fine,” the actress said.
Zaskia, who started her career in the television series “Kiamat Sudah Dekat” (Countdown to Doomsday), married filmmaker Hanung Bramantyo last year.
She said this is her second time to experience Ramadan with her husband.
During the fasting month, Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sexual relations between dawn and dusk.
