Motherhood is such a lovely phase which is hard to express in words. Right from the feeling of knowing that you are carrying a living being during your pregnancy inside you to evolving as a mother when the baby is born, everything is magical and sounds like a dream. This is one such phase in every woman’s life which she wants to cherish to the core. And our celeb moms are of no exception! But then there are some celebrity actresses who hid their pregnancy and chose to keep it to themselves. Their fans and in some cases even their co-stars came to know about the happy news only after the baby was born.
Here, we have a list of some Bollywood and television actresses who hid their pregnancy journey and revealed it only after the child’s birth.
Dor fame actress and one of the most talented divas of Bollywood, Gul Panaag, hid her pregnancy all the nine-months and even after six months of the baby’s arrival. Yes, you heard that absolutely right! The former Miss India married pilot beau, Rishi Attari in 2011 and was blessed with a baby boy in early 2018. Successfully keeping everything away from the media glare, the couple lovingly named their apple of the eye, Nihal.
Sharing the good news much later, Gul revealed to Mumbai Mirror:
“Rishi and I have always valued our privacy. Becoming parents is a special experience and we decided that we’d like to go through it without the distraction of public attention. Family and close friends knew about Nihal but we refrained from posting anything on the social media. He is almost six months old and it has been a roller coaster ride! I’m charmed by his gurgles and giggles even if it is a bit of a struggle with erratic sleep and feeding schedules. Life and goals are taking shape parallelly, with a little more coordination between Rishi and me to include Nihal.”
Ashoka fame actress, Somya Seth, walked down the aisle in January 2017, with her long-time boyfriend, Arun Kapoor in a close-knit ceremony. On October 13, 2017, Somya gave a pleasant surprise to all her fans by sharing a picture with the baby bump. Everyone congratulated her for expecting. Soon after that, the news broke that she already had given birth to a baby boy whose name is Ayden Krish Kapoor. And then she shared the pictures:
Everyone’s dear and lovely Mihiku from Yeh Hai Mohabbatein left everything for love and tied the knot with a US-based businessman, Anand Kapai. Mihika Varma who has now changed her name to Mihika Kapai surprised everyone when one fine day she shared a lovely picture with her hubby who could be seen cuddling her baby bump. She announced her pregnancy news by sharing this adorable snap and captioned it as, “Knock knock...” followed by a heart emoji.
Soon after this happy news came to the forefront, the Times of India contacted Mishkat Varma (Mihika’s brother). And from him, everyone got to know that the actress had already given birth to a baby boy. Mishkat shared:
"Yes, it's true that Mihika has delivered a baby boy."
And further added:
"She does not want to talk much about it right now and shall herself put it up announcing the name soon. Mihika just does not want to publicise it at all as of now."
He also revealed:
"Yes, it's been good three months to the baby's arrival.''
Kayamath fame actress, Panchi Bora is one such celeb who keeps her personal life completely to herself. Panchi walked down the aisle with her long-time beau Jaydeep on January 17, 2017. Panchi and Jaydeep’s wedding was a hush-hush affair, and everyone came to know about it after almost a month. Just like her wedding, she gave a pleasant surprise to everyone that she became a mommy to a baby girl when she straightaway shared the picture of the little one. Following is the picture she shared:
Revealing her name and introducing her to fans, she captioned it:
“Our lil daughter “miss Riyanna Patangia” already daddy’s girl n mommy’s heartbeat. Thank you for your prayers!! #blessed.”
Paridhi Sharma became everyone’s favourite through her commendable stint in Jodha Akhbar. But soon she was nowhere to be seen as and when the show got off the air. Paridhi tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with a businessman named, Tanmai Saxena, in 2011, when she had just started off with her career. The two of them first met during their college days and fell for each other. The actress hid her pregnancy, and no one didn’t even get any heed that she had already given birth to a baby boy. It was only after her pictures with the baby that surfaced on the internet and people came to know that she is a mother already. Here are the snaps:
Asin Thottumkal married Founder of Micromax, Rahul Sharma in an intimate ceremony in Delhi on January 19, 2016. After keeping the pregnancy hidden for 9 months, Asin and Rahul embraced parenthood on October 24, 2017, with the arrival of their little angelic baby girl. On the same day of their daughter’s birth, Asin and Rahul released a joint statement announcing the same, which could be read as:
"We are ecstatic to announce the arrival of our angelic baby girl earlier today. The last 9 months have been most special and exciting for the both of us and we would like to thank all our well wishers and everyone who has been part of our journey for all their love and support."
And on their daughter’s first birthday, Asin and Rahul shared her first pictures and also revealed the little one’s name. While Asin captioned her daughter’s first birthday pictures on Instagram as:
