No age is an ideal age to embrace motherhood and it is a decision that only a woman should take only when she is ready, and not when society wants her to be. Dia Mirza too, took that decision of her life when she was ready to experience the surreal phase of motherhood with her husband, Vaibhav Rekhi. At the age of 39, Dia broke the stereotype by tying the knot for the second time and conceiving her first child in her late 30s. It was in February 2021, when Dia had walked down the aisle and embarked on her ‘happily ever after’ journey with the Mumbai-based businessman, Vaibhav. Then a month and a half after their wedding, on April 1, 2021, Dia had announced her pregnancy with Vaibhav.
Soon after the wedding, Dia Mirza resumed her professional commitments and more than a month after tying the knot, she squeezed out some time for a much-needed vacation with her husband, Vaibhav Rekhi. Post-wedding, Dia jetted off to Delhi for her work commitments and in her airport selfie, though she captivated hearts with her radiant smile, it was her minimalist mangalsutra that grabbed our attention. Dia captioned her selfie as "All set to start a new story. Chalo Dilli!" with a heart emoji and 'work mode' sticker. Then on her Maldives vacation, Dia turned muse for Vaibhav as he captured every beautiful moment of his wife and the results were indeed breathtaking! The ever-so-gorgeous, Dia paired her green bikini set with a handcrafted white shrug which had green and blue work on it.
To announce her pregnancy, Dia Mirza posted a throwback picture from their Maldives vacation, which was clicked by her in-house photographer, Vaibhav Rekhi. Dia flaunted her baby bump in the sunset picture and to announce the good news, she 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. Photo by @vaibh_r #SunsetKeDiVaNe." Dia opted for a floral red short kaftan by The Boozy Button and the brand posted two unseen pictures of the mommy-to-be as she flaunted her baby bump on her Maldives vacation. The happiness on to-be mommy, Dia's face is unmissable.
Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi were accompanied by his daughter, Samaira Rekhi and their pictures were a sight to behold. The happiness on their faces made the beautiful relationship they share evident through pictures. Dia posted a couple of 'special memories' she had made with Vaibhav and Samaira on their vacation and captioned it as "We made some really special memories in the Maldives. Thank you @travelwithjourneylabel @jamanafaru_maldives #MyJAMoment #JAmanafaru #TravelWithJourneyLabel #JourneyLabel #YouAreSpecial."
Ever since Dia Mirza had announced her pregnancy, she has been delighting her fans with glimpses of her pregnancy journey and with her IG stories a few days ago, she became an inspiration for the expecting women. Dia posted a time-lapse video on her IG stories, giving a glimpse of her TRX workout routine at home. The to-be mommy's workout was under the guidance of her trainer, Rasal and Dia added the song, Don't Stop Me Now to her video.
Dia Mirza was trolled by the netizens for getting married because of pregnancy but she clarified on Instagram her reason to delay the announcement. Revealing that her wedding with Vaibhav Rekhi was not a result of her pregnancy, Dia had written, "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."
We wish Dia a happy and healthy pregnancy!
