Jang Dong-gun, Ko So-young 'Ecstatic' Over Pregnancy

Actor Jang Dong-gun and actress Ko So-young, whose wedding is scheduled on May 2, are expecting a baby.

Jang's agency in press release Thursday said Ko is in third month of her pregnancy.

Having a child was the most important concern for the couple since they started planning their wedding early this year. As both Jang and Ko are in their late thirties, their parents reportedly wanted them to have a child as soon as possible.

The agency said Jang and Ko and their parents are "ecstatic" and see the news as "huge blessing" for the marriage.

Ko is reportedly being very cautious as she is in the early phase of her pregnancy and took her condition into consideration when choosing her wedding dress.
