While there have been many celebs who announce their relationship, but very few see the light of the day. One celeb couple who have been going strong and just proved the latter is none other than ex-Bigg Boss contestants, Keith Sequeira and Rochelle Rao.
The big news about these gorgeous ex-Bigg Boss contestants is that they are officially engaged. Yes, the couple got engaged on Valentine's Day in 2017.
Throughout their little over one-year-relationship, Keith and Rochelle have truly defined what going from strength to strength really means. And inside the Bigg Boss house, when relationships can go kaput and friends become frenemies, Keith and Rochelle were redefining relationship goals.
Keith and Rochelle started dating only three months before they decided to enter the Bigg Boss house. The news of Keith and Rochelle’s engagement is not really surprising as a while ago, Keith spoke about his future with Rochelle at length. In an interview with a leading daily, talking about his relationship and their future plans, Keith was quoted as saying:
“We know which way we are headed, and we are just sticking to it. She is going to meet my parents and I am going to meet her parents.”
And Rochelle on the other hand, very sweetly spoke about the engagement plans when she said this:
“You can say we are currently just attending our friends’ weddings together and we have not yet made any plans of our own. But I promise the day he puts a ring on my finger, the first post will be on mine or his social media. Until then we r just enjoying the dating phase!”
Well, coming back to the engagement news, we must say, the lady did stick to her words. Rochelle broke the engagement news via her Instagram account with this adorable picture.
Not many know but before Keith started dating Rochelle, he was earlier married to Bollywood actress Samyukta Singh from 2005 to 2011. Even before Keith became a VJ, he was already seeing Samyukta. In fact, when Keith and Rochelle were in the Bigg Boss house, there were strong rumours that Samyukta might enter the house too!
So, who is Samyukta Singh? Well, she is one of the Bollywood actresses from the 90s. She was seen in the movie, Salaami alongside actor Ayub Khan. The pretty lady also appeared in a music album, Solva Saal alongside Vishal Singh of Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai fame. During the time of Bigg Boss, when Samyukta was asked about her ex-husband and his girlfriend, here is what she said:
"From what I know, they have been dating only since last three months. I dunno the girl (Rochelle) and I haven’t met her ever in my life. But you know Keith is a grown up man. I don’t think he is so stupid. I really dunno what to say...You know the Keith I knew is very different from who is he now! I don’t even know if I know him anymore.”
Keith met Rochelle hardly three months before the 9th season of Bigg Boss started. If you are wondering what attracted Keith towards Rochelle, Keith, in an interview, said:
"The person I share my closest bond with is Rochelle. I am lucky to have her in my life because the best part is despite being my fiancee she’s my best friend. Another great thing about Rochelle is that she’s emotionally intelligent and understands me. She always supports me when it comes to personal or professional matters and has always stood by my side in difficult times. Her trustworthy and honest nature makes me fall in love with her again and again. I am blessed to have a partner like her in my life. I don’t know what I’ll do without her."
A big congratulation to Keith and Rochelle for their engagement and we wish them a journey filled with pure love and happiness. For more updates on Keith and Rochelle’s upcoming wedding and other big plans, stay tuned with us.
