The actress took to her Instagram account to make the happy announcement. She shared a monochrome photo of a onesie and a personalised pendant which had “MAMA" initials on it. Ileana’s post took the internet by storm, with netizens wondering about her relationship status.
She has written in the caption, "Coming soon ✨ Can’t wait to meet you my little darling"
While her well-wishers and fans showered her with love and congratulatory messages in the comment section, a section of the internet was curious to know about the baby’s father.
Notably, Ileana D’Cruz was in a relationship with Andrew Kneebone a few years back. The actress had even referred to Kneebone as “best hubby ever" once on an Instagram post while it was still not clear whether the two were married or not.
She apparently broke up with him in 2019. Months after her break-up, she spoke to Pinkvilla on her separation with Kneebone. “I don’t get upset. When you are going through a situation like this, you understand the value of your family and friends. It’s the same that happened for me. I had my family and closest friends supporting me right through it," she said.
Of late, it has been reported that Ileana is dating Katrina Kaif’s brother, Sebastian Laurent Michel. On one of the episodes of Koffee With Karan season 7, Karan Johar seemingly confirmed their relationship.
Last year, Katrina Kaif had shared a bunch of photos from her birthday celebrations in the Maldives. Those in attendance included Katrina’s husband Vicky Kaushal, sister Isabelle Kaif, brother Sebastian Laurent Michel, friends Sharvari Wagh, Sunny Kaushal, Mini Mathur and others. Also part of the party was Ileana D’Cruz and her presence confused many.
While her fans congratulated her, some were curious about the identity of the baby’s father, with questions about her marital status and requests for details.
It is often seen as a trend that fans forget the boundaries and the fact that even celebrities can have a personal and private lives. Decision to keep the baby's father's name private is Ileana's decision and we, as society, must respect the boundaries.
