Dia Mirza, who married businessman Vaibhav Rekhi in February this year, revealed that she is expecting her first child in an Instagram post last week. While many praised the actress for accepting motherhood joy, others mocked her for it.A user recently questioned why she couldn't announce her pregnancy before the wedding and asked, 'why she couldn't announce her pregnancy before the marriage.?' The star of Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein responded appropriately to the troll, clarifying that she did not marry Vaibhav because she was pregnant.
An Instagram user commented on her pregnancy announcement photo, saying,“That's so good, congrats. But the problem is, she tried to break the stereotypes with woman priest, why couldn't she announce her pregnancy before the marriage? Isn't becoming pregnant after marriage a stereotype we follow? Why can't women get pregnant before marriage? Dia replied to this and said, “Interesting question. 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.”
She further added, “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.”
“Only answering this because: 1) Having a child is a beautiful gift of life 2) There must never be any shame attached to this beautiful journey 3) As women we must always exercise our choice 4) Whether we choose to be single and parent a child or be in a marriage it is after all our choice 5) As a society we must un stereotype our idea of what is right or wrong, instead of training ourselves to ask what is fair or unfair,” She ended.
