As apparent as it could be from the title, we are talking about the very beautiful Ileana D'Cruz and her rumoured photographer hubby, Andrew Kneebone. The actress has time and again shared how much she loves Andrew. In a recent collage of pictures in a single frame that she had posted sometime back, Ileana shared how grateful she is to have Andrew in her life. She wrote, “I break. I cry. I crumble..."
She further wrote, “I fall. I beat myself up over the way I look. I’ll find fault with myself. I lose sense. I lose perspective. I forget who I really am. I focus on the negativity. I feel completely helpless. And all I want to do is give up. I feel weak. Unable to take the scrutiny. Unable to deal with the harsh words of the many many faceless people who thrust their opinions onto me. How I should look, what I should wear, what I should say, whom I should be seen with…”And all I want to do is hide from it all..lock myself away and just cower in fear and pray that eventually it’ll all go away but that’s not me. That’s not who I truly am. I’m stronger than that. @andrewkneebonephotography I honestly wouldn’t still be here if you weren’t in my life. You saved me. You still do. You pick up my broken pieces and fix me up and give me strength to fight my battles. You remind me that I am good enough. You tell me I’m beautiful every single fucking day. And you mean it. But most importantly you don’t give up on me. You make me a better me. I’m not a quitter. I won’t give up. Not today. #bekind #bekindalways #bekindtoyourself #bekindtooneanother.” (Also Read: Sonali Bendre, In A Heartfelt Post, Revealed How Her Son, Ranveer Reacted To The News Of Her Cancer)
Coming back to our point on birthdays, it is Andrew’s birthday today and Ileana made sure that she makes it really special for him. The Barfi actress posted a beautiful picture of herself and her love and wrote an even beautiful caption. The caption could be read as, “Happy Birthday my love. Seriously I don’t know how you get sexier with every year I’ve known you! Ain’t complaining though. I hope you have the best year ever...you deserve every happiness and so much more and if I can add to that in even a small little way I’d consider myself very lucky! I love you.” Here’s the snap:
Wow! Can anything be more amazing? By the way, are you thinking as to why we are calling Andrew, Ileana’s rumoured hubby? Okay, we will repeat the story for those who were living under the rock for all this while. On Christmas 2017, Ileana posted a beautiful but blurred picture of herself wearing a red gown, decorating a Christmas tree. The caption that she wrote blew everyone’s mind. She had written, “My favourite time of the year #christmastime #happyholidays #home#love #family. Photo by hubby Andrew Kneebone Photography". Now you know why! But please note that Ileana, being the private person that she is, never officially confirmed or gave any statement that she is married.
Recent speculations also had it that Ileana was pregnant. She took to her Instagram to dismiss all the pregnancy rumours by posting a picture of her and captioning it as, “#notpregnant @andrewkneebonephotography”. What had added fuel to fire on Ileana’s pregnancy rumours was when her husband and photographer Andrew Kneebone shared a picture of the actress in a bathtub and wrote, “@ileana_official having time some sweet time alone, kind of.”
When asked about her relationship status in an interview recently, Ileana shared, “It’s exactly what you see. What’s great about the social media is that I can let people in to an extent but I don’t like talking about my pas. How the relationship started and where, in interviews. It’s too personal. I won’t hide it and I won’t deny it. Everything is out there for everyone to see, don’t ask me too many questions about it. I’ll tell you what I want to tell you. Period." (Don't Miss!
