Actor Lee Tae-im is three months pregnant and has officially quit the entertainment business, her agency Management Henem told local entertainment outlet TV Report on Wednesday.

Lee hinted on social media Monday that she may be leaving the acting world. “I’ve been suffering too much and I want to live a normal life from now on,” she wrote.

Following her post, rumors quickly spread online that the reason behind Lee’s retirement was because she had conceived a child with former President Lee Myung-bak’s son Lee Si-hyung.

After two days of silence from the actor, her agency spoke with a reporter on Wednesday saying, “We met with Lee today for a clear explanation. Lee is currently three months pregnant and she plans to get married after giving birth. She met her soon-to-be husband at the end of last year, and he is a businessman who is older than her.”

With this, the agency denied rumors that the father of her child is Lee Si-hyung. They continued, “She has ended her contract with us,” officially announcing her retirement.
