Bollywood moms who conceived before marriage

Getting pregnant before marriage is not a big thing in western countries. However, in India, it is still not normal to conceive before the wedding. Perhaps this would have been the reason why when many leading Bollywood actresses came to know about their pregnancy, they tied the knot in a hush-hush affair so that they do not have to face any embarrassment and also cover the premarital pregnancy news with ease. Recently, I came across an article in a popular magazine that wrote about celebrities who reportedly conceived before getting married: Konkona Sen Sharma: The dusky actress dated Ranvir Shorey for some time before the two got married in a private ceremony.

Celina Jaitely: The actress tied the knot with her Dubai-based Austrian boyfriend, Peter Haag in the year 2011. Celina delivered her twin babies in the year 2012. However, the actress always refuted reports of her pregnancy before marriage, but many reports strongly claimed that it happened before she got married. Celina announced in July 2017 that she was pregnant with twins once again. Mahima Chaudhary: The actress announced her wedding all of a sudden just like her pregnancy. She got married to Bobby Mukherjee in the year 2006. However, Mahima’s pregnancy was much obvious as she gave birth to her daughter just a few months later. Neha Dhupia: The entire country was shocked to see Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi’s tweet right after their marriage in May 2018. Although the couple never admitted at first, but Neha was often seeing hiding her baby bump and moving around in oversized clothes. Neha and Angad were blessed with a baby girl in November 2018, after which Angad Told the media that Neha had apparently got pregnant before marriage and therefore, the couple had to get married in a quick ceremony in a gurudwara. Amrita Arora: In her case, a sudden wedding reportedly took place only to cover up something, which was actually quite too obvious for the rest of the world to know. Stunning diva Amrita Arora tied the knot with boyfriend Shakeel Ladak in a hush-hush affair and soon after the wedding, she broke the news of pregnancy.
