They were childhood sweethearts, both star kids, head over heels in love with each other! We are talking about Fardeen Khan and his wife Natasha Madhvani, daughter of yesteryear actress, Mumtaz. After dating for many years, Fardeen popped the question mid-air, in a plane and his lady-love, Natasha said yes!
From there began a beautiful tale of love. Fardeen and Natasha tied the knot in a lavish style in December 2005, in Mumbai. After enjoying a blissful married life for many years, the couple decided to start a family and were expecting twins in 2012. But, a tragedy resulted in Natasha’s miscarriage at a later stage of pregnancy.
The couple was shattered after they lost their unborn twins in London. But the couple did'nt lose hope and tried again for a baby. And then, Fardeen and Natasha were blessed with a baby girl in December 2013. Fardeen named his little doll, Diani Isabelle Khan.
Here is another chance for the couple to rejoice as they are going to embrace parenthood again. Yes, Natasha is pregnant with their second baby and is due to deliver soon.
Natasha is in London currently with the family, to take proper rest and will also deliver the baby there only. Fardeen shared the happy news a few months ago, saying:
"I am on top of the moon. Natasha is five months pregnant and isn’t travelling with me this time around as it’s so hot in Mumbai and soon, the monsoons will be upon us. She will come after that. I visit India every three or four weeks and spend half that time in Mumbai."
Natasha is in her third trimester and absolutely healthy. These are the final days of her pregnancy and the baby will arrive either by the end of July or in the first week of August.
Talking about his little daughter, Diani, Fardeen said:
"To be honest, it’s the most profound chapter of my life and she has brought life full circle. You value everything that is truly important in your life. You are born to your parents. They bring you up and you love and value them. Then you have your own children, you realise what your parents went through, bringing you up and then you try and teach your daughter everything about life just the way your parents taught you."
The elated father understands the responsibility of becoming a parent and raising a child.
Talking further about the same, Fardeen said:
“If you are not ready for the responsibility, don’t bring life into this world. It is a big, big responsibility to bring life into this world. It’s not a whim or fancy and you have to be truly prepared for it. You have to make sure in whatever capacity you can, you give your child the best opportunities that you can. And more than anything, all they want is your love so you have to give them your time and love. Everything else is secondary.”
After a miscarriage and then a healthy daughter, the couple is thrilled to become parents again and welcome their second child. Talking about his excitement, Fardeen said:
“Natasha and I have had our share of challenges and that’s why we have been parked in London and travel back and forth. We are over the moon. It completes our family. We have always wanted at least two children, so it completes our family and we are extremely happy! We are happy as a couple, we are happy as a unit and even my little daughter Diani is looking forward to having a sibling.”
Fardeen and Natasha are currently residing in London, but he keeps visiting Mumbai for work. After the baby is born, the couple is planning to shift back to Mumbai.
Talking about the same, Fardeen said:
"Diani is right now in London, but the minute we have our second child, we have to come back for Diani’s school year so she will be starting school in Mumbai from June next year. It’s home! Aamchi Mumbai! Living there has just been a temporary thing. We were here more to have our children as we had some medical challenges as a couple. Hopefully, everything will go well, and Diani will be in a Mumbai school by June next year. We have already started applying there. We are just going to be here till she completes her school year in London."
He also took a break from Bollywood, soon after his daughter was born. Talking about taking a sabbatical, Fardeen said:
“The last three years I took a call to be a full-time parent, but now I am beginning to miss the movies. I am missing work and I need to get back!”
We are extremely happy to know that Fardeen and Natasha are expecting their second child. Our heartiest congratulations to the to-be-parents. May the mother and the soon-to-arrive baby be healthy and happy! And all you guys, stay tuned for more updates on your favourite couple!
