Claudia Kim is expecting her first child



Actor Claudia Kim Shampine, known in Korea as Kim Soo-hyun, is pregnant with her first child, her agency announced Tuesday.

“Soo-hyun is entering her 15th week of pregnancy,” Culture Depot, the agency, said in a statement. “Her schedule will be organized accordingly. We thank everyone for their enthusiasm and support.”

Kim tied the knot with Matthew Shampine, WeWork Korea’s general manager, in December.

Shampine, who also goes by by his Korean name Cha Min-geun, was adopted to an American family at a young age. He is one of the founding members of WeWork.

Kim has appeared in Hollywood films like Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” (2015). She also played Nagini in the film “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” (2018). Kim grew up in the United States before returning to Korea to attend Ewha Womans University.
