Alia and her husband-actor Ranbir Kapoor welcomed their firstborn, a baby girl on November 6. Announcing their daughter’s arrival, Alia wrote on Instagram, “And in the best news of our lives:- Our baby is here…and what a magical girl she is. We are officially bursting with love – Blessed and obsessed parents!!!! Love love love Alia and Ranbir.”
In an interview with Marie Claire, Alia said during pregnancy days, “I am a little concerned about bringing up a child in the public eye. I talk about it with my friends, with my family, and my husband a lot. I don’t want there to be a, sort of, intrusion into my child’s life. Because at the end of the day, I have chosen this path, but maybe my child may not want to choose this path when he or she grows up…so that’s something that I feel very protective about.”
Speaking about her daughter wanting to pursue her career in acting, Alia said, “I don’t think that’s something that I can really prepare and plan for. I don’t want to have any fixed ideas of how I want that to be. Because why should I have any expectations and then be met with any disappointment or elation or anything of that sort? So they need the slate blank, a bit.”
Alia and Ranbir announced that they will become parents in June this year. The couple tied the knot on April 14, after dating for several years. Just after two months after their marriage, the couple treated their fans with the surprise.
Alia was recently seen in Brahmastra: Part 1- Shiva which gathered massive responses from the audience. Helmed by Ayan Mukerji, the film also starred Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna and Mouni Roy in the lead roles. She will be next seen in director Karan Johar’s Rocky aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani alongside Dharmendra, Shabana Azmi, Jaya Bachchan and Ranveer Singh.
