Shilpa Shetty has confirmed that she and her husband Raj Kundra are expecting their first baby together. The actress posted on her Twitter page today (December 10, 2011), "Tweetos,"YES"an addition 2 r family is r confirmation 2 all queries:) We seek blessings from all in this very beautiful phase of our lives."
Rumours of Shilpa being pregnant had resurfaced again recently, just a few months after they first began. In June 2011, Shilpa posted on her Twitter page, "Sick and tired of all the congratulatory msgs and calls, so for the last time 'I AM NOT PREGNANT'. All this is so annoying...grrrrrrrrr."
She'd added then, "To all my followers 'If, how and when I wish to make any personal announcement, is entirely MY (not the press') prerogative! As of now there's none to make."
"I do know I am in the public domain, and everyone is curious, but these are sensitive issues, hence would appreciate the press respects my privacy. Thanks."
In September 2011, Shilpa had said about the pregnancy rumours, "There is news that I am expecting and I don't know that I am expecting. It baffles me. I always say that you do your job and I do mine. There is a line between us. You shouldn't cross that line. I wouldn't cross that line with you guys. It's about respect."
"If I do get pregnant any day, I would be more than happy to announce it. This is not something I have to hide," the 36-year-old had added then. And that's just what she's done.
Shilpa and Britain-based Indian businessman Raj Kundra got married in 2009. He has a five-year-old daughter with his ex-wife Kavita.
