Bollywood Actress Shilpa Shetty Expecting her First Child

The stork has come calling this time for Indian actress Shilpa Shetty who is expecting her first child with her husband Raj Kundra. Currently, in her second trimester, Shilpa broke the news of her pregnancy through her Twitter account.

The 36-year-old Bollywood actress also found fame in the UK through the reality show Celebrity Big Brother which she won in 2007. After months of speculation, Shilpa confirmed  the rumours saying,

“Tweetos, ‘YES’ an addition to our family is our confirmation to all queries 🙂 We seek blessings from all in this very beautiful phase of our lives.”

Shilpa married her London-based businessman husband Raj Kundra in 2009. She is believed to have met him just after she won the UK show. Although this is going to be the couple’s first child, Raj already has a daughter from his previous marriage.

A friend close to the actress revealed, “Shilpa suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, so this time Raj and she did not want to break the news till the first trimester was complete. Now, she has started telling her close friends.”

Congratulatory messages have already started pouring in for the couple.

Another Indian actress and Shilpa’s close friend Raveena Tandon tweeted, “’SO happy 4 my friend @TheShilpaShetty and her husband Raj, for the new, on the way, angel of happiness.”
