Alia married Ranbir a month after she turned 29. Ranbir is 39. Their first movie together, Brahmastra was set to hit theaters on September 9 this year. In an old interview a few years ago, Alia had talked about the age at which she wants to get married.
“Maybe people expect me to get married at 30, but I could also surprise myself and get married sooner. Nothing is set in stone, right? So if I feel like I’m in a position where I take such a step, then I will. I have always believed that I would marry because of children. So if I think, ‘This is the time when I want to have my children and also be ready to have babies,’ I will get married,” had Alia said in an interview with Indian Express in 2018.
“Our baby… is coming,” Alia wrote on Instagram on Monday, attaching a photo from her ultrasound appointment, where Ranbir was also with her. She also posted a photo with two lions and a lion cub.
Recently, even Ranbir Kapoor talked about making a family as we chatted with fans and paparazzi at the launch of the Shamshera trailer. He said: “Abhi mujhe bahot kaam karna hai sir. Abhi mujhe family banani hai, unke liye kaam karna hai. Pehle mai khudke liye kaam karraha tha. (I have a lot of work to do. Now I have to start a family so I must work for them. I used to work for myself).” Ranbir .’s next movie shamshera comes out next month.
