Egyptian actress Muna has announced that she had made the decision to freeze all work related to her acting career since she is nearing the delivery date of her first born child. The actress felt it best for her and her baby's wellbeing that she stays home and relaxes until she is due. 


Muna has put aside all scenarios of films and TV dramas that have been offered to her and has made it clear that for the upcoming couple of months she does not want to deal with the chaos of the acting world and wishes to stay far away from it.  


Zaki had at first announced that she has decided to pull out of the play "Kidda Okay" (Like This Okay) to avoid overworking herself while pregnant. The actress had at first refused the idea of quitting from the play saying she is very much capable of continuing despite being pregnant.  


According to the different news sources, Muna began to feel fatigue and felt it was time she cut back on the amount of work she is doing in order not to face any difficulties. The director of the play is currently looking for a replacement for Muna and for Egyptian actress Summaya Al Khashab, who also pulled out of the play for personal reasons.  


Recently, disputes between Zaki and the producers of the play "Kidda Okay" (Like This Okay) occured, due to the insistence of Muna on continuing acting out her role despite her pregnancy. The producers of the play find it to be very inconvenient for Muna to continue especially since her part is of a young lady who is not married.  


Muna had at the time stressed that she will not give in to the wishes of the producers in turn jeopardizing all her benefits in terms of profit from the play. Muna added that her pregnancy had caused her no difficulty and to prove her point is her current filming of the new movie "Aunt Francis".  


Muna had announced publicly that she is finally pregnant and that she is anxiously waiting to become a mother. Muna revealed that she and her husband have already made their decision that if their firstborn is a boy they will name him Hassan. The couple had not yet made up their minds on what to name the baby if it is a girl. The actress stressed that now she is more than happy to read the news in papers since it is finally true. –
