Indian actress and television host, Rochelle Rao often leaves us in awe with her jaw-dropping looks and the bond she shares with her handsome hubby, Keith Sequeira. The madly-in-love couple's bond was clearly visible on the reality show, Bigg Boss 9. While people thought that their relationship was just for the game, the couple had proved everyone wrong by getting married in an intimate wedding in 2018.
Rochelle and Keith like to keep their personal lives private, but they often share glimpses of their happily ever after on their respective IG handles. Recently, in an interview with Humans of Bombay, Rochelle opened up about how her hubby, Keith had proposed to her after a huge fight.
In an interaction with Humans of Bombay, Rochelle revealed that at the age of twenty-five she had found love in Keith. However, he came into her life when she had given up on love after being in a couple of pointless relationships. She shared that they had met each other at a Chruch group and they had instantly developed a bond. She said:
"At 25, while I was living my showbiz dream in Mumbai, my personal life plummeted. Tired of pointless relationships, I’d almost given up on love, when Keith joined my church group. Coming from the same industry, it didn’t take long for us to become friends; we’d hang out every weekend–I’d think of girls I could set him up with! But soon, I realized that Keith was what I was looking for–sweet, intelligent & serious about love. I fell for him, but he was oblivious–until his birthday, when I went all out with gifts, & he finally got the hint. Days later, while walking me home, he kissed me. That’s how we began dating!"
Rochelle further share that when they had entered in the reality show, Bigg Boss, it shaped their relationship. She had shared that the first two months of their relationship were hush-hush. She also revealed that many had thought that their relationship was a publicity stunt. She said:
"Soon after, we got offered Bigg Boss. I told him, ‘I don’t mind, as long as I have you.’ Many thought our relationship was a publicity stunt, but we couldn’t care less! We entered the Bigg Boss house, & it was going well–Keith would even make me coffee everyday. But a few weeks in, he was pulled out overnight; no one told me why. When he finally came back, a month later, I was overjoyed! But finding out his brother had passed away broke my heart! I asked, ‘Why come back?’ & he said, ‘I’d rather mourn with you.’ I thought, ‘If we get through this, we can get through anything.’ By the end of that show, I knew he was the one."
Talking about the big proposal, Rochelle revealed that after being together for a long time, Keith had not asked the marriage question. And it had left her disappointed. So, one day out of the blue, she had burst out her anger and it led Keith to propose her. She said:
"But 1 year later, Keith still hadn’t proposed! Once, on my birthday, he was giving me a gift & all my friends took out their cameras–convinced he was going to do it. But he gifted me boots! How anticlimactic! Months later, Keith hinted at a ‘special’ trip. By then, I was done. I burst out, ‘If you’re going to propose, just do it!’ I ranted so much that in the heat of the moment, he said, ‘Fine, if this is the way you want it!’ Then, he got down on one knee, pulled out a ring & asked, ‘Will you marry me?’ It was crazy, but it was SO us! We celebrated with champagne."
Talking about her beautiful marriage, Rochelle revealed that after taking their vows, they had eaten dosas and danced the entire night. She said:
"In 2018, we tied the knot. Our vows were beautiful, & after, we ate dosas & danced with our loved ones. It’s been 4 years since, & we still keep each other on our toes. But he keeps me centered, too! Everyday, I wake up, knowing I’ve Keith’s coffee & smile to look forward to!"
