Bollywood actress and newlywed Dia Mirza is all set to welcome a new family member. The former beauty queen is expecting her first child with her husband Vaibhav Rekhi. The couple got married in an intimate ceremony in Mumbai on 15 February 2021. Dia Mirza clarifies she didn’t marry Vaibhav Rekhi because she was pregnant.
Actor Dia Mirza responded to an Instagram user who questioned the timing of her marriage to businessman Vaibhav Rekhi. Dia married Vaibhav in February and announced that she is pregnant last week. She maintained that they did not get married because they are having a baby together.
Responding to the news of Dia’s pregnancy, an Instagram user asked why she did not share the news before she got married. “That’s so good, congrats. But the problem is, she tried to break the stereotypes with woman priest, why couldn’t she announce her pregnancy before the marriage? Isn’t becoming pregnant after marriage a stereotype we follow? Why can’t women get pregnant before marriage?” the user wrote.
Dia said that her and Vaibhav’s decision to get married was not a result of her pregnancy. She added ‘there must never be any shame attached to this beautiful journey’ and maintained that she did not reveal anything earlier only due to medical reasons.
“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,” she wrote.
