Dia Mirza had gotten hitched to a Mumbai-based businessman, Vaibhav Rekhi, on February 15, 2021. Shortly after the intimate wedding, the couple had jetted off to the Maldives for a mini vacation. During their stay in the Maldives, on April 1, 2021, Dia Mirza had announced her first pregnancy and had given her fans a pleasant surprise. While on one side, her social media was filled with lovely congratulatory wishes, on the other side, the actress was even trolled for being pregnant before marriage.
To announce her first pregnancy, Dia Mirza had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared a picture, clicked by her hubby, Vaibhav Rekhi. In the picture, we could see Dia donning a breezy orange dress while cradling her baby bump. Alongside it, the actress had written, "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."
Mommy-to-be, Dia Mirza was papped out and about in the city on April 6, 2021, making her first public appearance after announcing her pregnancy. The actress' pregnancy glow was unmissable in a white top and slaty cargo pants. Her hair was made into a slick ponytail. She completed her look with a pair of white sneakers.
When Dia had announced her pregnancy, she was trolled for getting married because of her pregnancy, and the actress had given a befitting reply to her troll. The troll had written, "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?"
Dia had given a befitting reply to the troller and had written, "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."
For those who don't know, Dia and Vaibhav's wedding was performed by a priestess. Taking to her IG handle on February 16, 2021, Dia had shared a few wedding pictures and in one picture, we could spot a priestess performing the rituals. Sharing the picture, Dia had written, "Love is a full-circle that we call home. And what a miracle it is to hear its knock, open the door and be found by it. Sharing this moment of completion and joy with you..my extended family. May all puzzles find their missing pieces, may all hearts heal and may the miracle of love continue to unfold all around us #ThankYouPreeta #SunsetKeDiVaNe."
We wish Dia happy and healthy pregnancy!
