Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatti are expecting their ‘baby’ soon. The actors married in an intimate ceremony at their home in Mumbai in April. Alia announced Monday via an Instagram message that the couple is having a baby. A few days ago, Ranbir spoke about his “first wife” in an interview. However, he was not referring to Alia.

After Alia and Ranbir’s Baby Announcement, Celebs Like Priyanka Chopra, Anushka Sharma and Karan Johar, as well as the couple’s families – mothers Neetu Kapoor and Soni Razdan, and sisters Shaheen Bhatt and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni – shared their joy in social media posts. However, days before Alia and Ranbir made headlines for their baby news, Ranbir had related an event that happened before he married Alia.
In a conversation with Mashable, Ranbir Kapoor spoke of a fan, who married the ‘gate’ of his Mumbai residence, Vastu. The actor said he was informed about the incident by the security guard of the building. Ranbir said the fan came with a priest and put a “teeka” on the gate of the building.
“There was a girl and I never met her. But my guard told me she came with a pundit (priest) and she married my gate. There was a teeka (a mark usually made with vermilion or turmeric for religious ceremonies) gate, and some flowers too. So that’s kind of crazy,” Ranbir said.
Ranbir also joked that she was his “first wife”, although he had never met her in person. “I haven’t met my first wife yet, so I look forward to meeting you one day,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ranbir is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film Shamshera, which will also star Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor. The film, which would mark its comeback to the big screen after the 2018 film Sanju, will hit theaters on July 22. In his next, Brahmastra, Ranbir and Alia will be seen together for the first time. The film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna Akkineni and Mouni Roy.
