Despite the fact the Egyptian actress Muna Zaki has always expressed a wish to have half a dozen children, she announced that she and her husband have decided to not have another baby. The actress’s decision came after she realized that motherhood is a big responsibility and requires a lot of hard work.
According to the London based weekly, Laha, Muna stressed that she wants to provide her daughter with all the best things life has to offer, and the best education. The actresses added that in order to give her daughter the best life, having another baby would make that difficult and so decided that having one child is more than enough.
Zaki denied circulating rumors about the existence of disputes with her husband, Ahmad Hilmi, and that he had asked her to resign from her acting profession. Muna was surprised to hear these rumors, saying that they are on excellent terms and enjoying a very happy life together.
Muna has just completed shooting the final scenes of her upcoming film “Ahlam Umrina” (Our Life’s Dreams). The film is scheduled for screening during the summer season and is expected to witness a fierce competition in the wave of summer movies.
