Martial arts actor Iko Uwais says he hopes his wife, singer Audy Item, will get pregnant soon so they can have a baby next year.
“Hopefully my marriage will bear fruit in 2013. Having a child with my wife is my biggest hope right now,” said the 29-year-old actor who shot to fame after starring in Gareth Evans’ martial arts movie Merantau in 2009, as quoted by kompas.com.
Iko married Audy, 29, in June this year after his widely publicized whirlwind romance with actress Jane Shalimar abruptly ended.
His martial arts talent in his latest film, The Raid: Redemption, gained him international praise, and he is now preparing for the film’s sequel, Berandal ( Thugs ).
