The first-ever Indian to have won the Miss Universe title in 1994, Sushmita Sen became the pride of the country overnight! Be it her iconic answer on the ‘essence of a woman’ or the moment when she was regarded as the most iconic lady of the universe, Sushmita Sen has been ruling the universe ever since! And it was only yesterday (May 23, 2019), when Sush completed 25 years of being Miss Universe and her family had arranged a surprise party for the boss lady.
Sushmita Sen’s boyfriend, Rohman Shawl, two daughters, Renee and Alisah had planned a surprise bash for her on the great occasion.

Speaking about our favourite Sushmita Sen’s personal life, it is not a closed fact anymore that she is dating the dapper model, Rohman Shawl. Sushmita is already a mother to two awesome girls, Renee and Alisah, whom she had adopted quite early in her 20s. When a man enters their mother’s life, it is important for the kids to approve of him and how beautifully, Rohman Shawl has won over her daughters' hearts! Sushmita Sen, Rohman Shawl, Renee and Alisah are often seen singing, dancing, enjoying birthdays and holidaying with each other and for the same, they have apparently decided to take the next big plunge in their relationship. No, they are not getting married, but instead, are reportedly living in together! As per a SpotboyE report, Sushmita Sen and her beau, Rohman Shawl have apparently started living-in together at the former’s Bandra apartment. A source had shared with the portal, “Rohman Shawl used to be a regular visitor at Sushmita Sen’s home, so much so that her daughters got too familiar with him. And now the couple came to this beautiful conclusion.” (Also Read: Sushant Singh Rajput's Ex Ankita Lokhande To Marry BF Vicky Jain, Buys 8 BHK Flat, Details Inside)
