After the Bachchan Bahu Aishwarya Rai, it’s time for a new girl in tinsel town to share her good news. Actress Lara Dutta and her husband tennis superstar Mahesh Bhupathi have finally gone on record to share the news that Lara is pregnant with their first child. The rumour mills had been buzzing aplenty these past few weeks, but it is only recently that the couple themselves broke the news to the world. “Yes, I’m pregnant and I am very excited.” Lara told the media.
In reference to the fact that Lara and Mahesh had not confirmed rumours when they had initially circled the Bollywood circuit, Dutta said “We have never denied it. There is a time and place to talk about every phase of life and this is a personal matter. We felt this is the right time to announce it and hence we have.”
And I am certain the next question on every Lara Dutta fan’s lips is whether or not she will continue to work after becoming a mother. “I love being part of the industry and whether it’s writing, acting or producing, I will definitely continue to be involved in some way or the other. For now I am looking forward to the release of Don 2 and of course, the baby soon after.”
The love and adulation is already pouring in for the happy couple. Another expectant father, Abhishek Bachchan, in his excitement tweeted to Lara Dutta “CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! welcome on board” which Lara replied with “thank you so much ab! You’ll will be sorted by the time our turn comes, will call for tips!!”. Seems the stork has really been busy taking care of our Bollywood beauties.
