Last week, Bollywood actress Dia Mirza announced her pregnancy with her husband Vaibhav Rekhi. The couple tied the knot on February 15 in an intimate ceremony in Mumbai. After the announcement, Dia took to the comments section to respond to someone questioning when she announced her pregnancy.
Dia has faced social media trolls after announcing her pregnancy with a photo of her baby bump just a month after her wedding. Instagram user asked the actress why she didn’t announce her pregnancy before marriage and shattered the stereotype of having children only after marriage, as she shattered stereotypes by making her marriage prevail by a woman priest.
Responding to the question, Dia wrote, “Interesting question. First, we didn’t get married because we had a baby together. We were already getting married because we wanted to spend our life together. We found out that we were going to have a baby while we were planning our wedding. So this marriage is not the result of pregnancy. We did not announce the pregnancy before knowing its safety (medical reasons). This is the happiest news of my life. I have waited for many years for this to happen. In no case would I hide it for any reason other than medical.
She further revealed the reason why she answered the question in detail. “Respond to this only because: 1) Having a child is a beautiful gift of life 2) There should never be any shame attached to this beautiful journey 3) As women we should always exercise our choice 4) Whether we choose to be single and parents with a child or to be in a marriage is after all our choice. 5) As a society we need to stereotype our idea of what is right and wrong, instead of training ourselves to ask what is right and wrong.
Meanwhile, announcing her pregnancy, Dia had shared a gorgeous photo of herself cradling her plump belly. “Happy to be… One with Mother Earth… One with the Force of Life which is the beginning of everything… Of all stories. Lullabies. Songs. New saplings. And the blossoming of hope. Happy to rock this purest of all dreams in my womb, ”she captioned the post.
