Dia Mirza And Vaibhav Rekhi
Dia Mirza announced her pregnancy on April 1. Sharing a picture of her flaunting her baby bump, Dia Mirza wrote, "Blessed to be...One with Mother Earth...One with the Life Force that is the beginning of everything...Of all stories. Lullabies. Songs. Of new saplings. And the blossoming of hope. Blessed to cradle this purest of all dreams in my womb Photo by @vaibh_r #SunsetKeDiVaNe."
Though it was one of the happiest news of Dia Mirza's life, she was flooded with questions after she made the announcement. Many asked her why she didn't announce her pregnancy before her marriage. Dia Mirza cleared that she got to know about the pregnancy while planning for wedding with Vaibhav Rekhi. She wrote, "Interesting question. Firstly, we didn’t marry because we were having a baby together. We were already marrying as we wanted to spend our lives together. We discovered we were going to have a baby while we were planning our wedding. So this marriage is not the result of pregnancy. We didn’t announce the pregnancy until we knew its safe (medical reasons). This is the happiest news of my life. I’ve waited for many many years for this to happen. No way I would hide it for any reason other than medical.”
Neha Dhupia And Angad Bedi
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi announced their second pregnancy on Instagram in July this year. Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi were already parents to three-year-old Mehr and were blessed with their second baby, a baby boy in October.
Angad Bedi took to his Twitter handle and sharing a picture from Neha Dhupia's pregnancy shoot, wrote, “'BEDIS BOY' is here!!!!!! The almighty today blessed us with a baby boy. Both neha and the baby are well. Mehr is ready to pass on the ‘baby’ title to the new arrival. Waheguru mehr kare @nehadhupia thank you for being such a warrior through this journey. Lets make it a memorable one for all 4 of us now.”
