‘Sweetu’ from Kal Ho Na Ho, Delnaaz Irani’s love life has seen many ups and downs, but she never gave up on love. Earlier, she was married to actor Rajeev Paul, however, after 14 years of marriage, they had parted ways. Their divorce had hit their fans hard and watching them together on Bigg Boss, had made everyone pray for them to be back together. Well, Delnaaz has moved on her life and is in a happy space with her boyfriend, DJ Percy. In an interview, she talked about her plans to embrace motherhood.
Delnaaz Irani and her boyfriend, Percy Karkaria are extremely serious about each other and are in a live-in relationship. Time and time again rumours about their wedding hit the headlines but nothing actually happens. Delnaaz is 49 years old and in an interview, she talked about her plans to have a baby with her boyfriend, Percy.
Delnaaz is back on TV sets with her show, Kabhi Kabhie Ittefaq Se, where she is playing the character of Goli bua, who doesn’t have a child and takes care of her niece. In a conversation with the Hindustan Times, Delnaaz shared that she relates to the character as once she also had the wish to have a child. Sharing that biologically, it’s too late for her though once she wanted a child, Delnaaz said:
“I definitely wanted to become a mother. I wanted to have (at least) one child. But it was not meant to be. Today I cannot say the same. Biologically, it’s too late (for me to be a mother). We are both not up for adoption, so we are not even thinking on those lines. At one point, I wanted to be a mom, today I can’t even think about it.”
When asked if she and her boyfriend plan to opt for surrogacy to have a child, Delnaaz shared that they have each other and that’s enough. She concluded:
“No, I think at this stage in life we are very happy with each other as of now. We (Percy and I) have ample nephews and nieces to mother and father. It’s like the show I’m doing. And they are a handful. So we give them as much love as we can.”
In an interview with Zoom Digital, Delnaaz was asked about her plans of getting married to her boyfriend, DJ Percy. She had replied to it in her trademark style and had stated:
“Marriage is something that is completely our choice, so we have decided that we don’t want marriage, we want a live-in... But maybe years down the line, I might just surprise everybody. You never know… That's a topic I have been saying... we are living in, we are happy and just let us be the way we are.”
Giving an insight into her relationship, the Kal Ho Naa Ho actress had revealed that Percy is perfect in every sense as he has been there for her through thick and thin. She had concluded:
“Percy is like my soulmate; not like my soulmate, he is my soulmate, who is with me through thick and thin. He is the man who will always put a smile on my face. When you tell people I am going to be there with you life-long, I am going to be rocksteady with you, I am going to share your responsibility, sukh dukh mein saath hu… he’s that man. He proves this time and again.”
For the unversed, in an interview with The Times Of India, Delnaaz had shared that she might tie the knot with Percy in 2023.
