Many fans reacted to Alia’s baby announcement. One person wrote, “Itni jaldi (so soon), btw congratulations to both of you.” Another person wondered what the couple would name the baby, writing, “Name kya socha mam (Have you thought of a name)?”
Ranbir’s sister Riddhima Kapoor Sahni also reacted to the post, and left heart emojis. Alia’s mother Soni Razdan wrote, “Congratulations Mama and Papa lion.” Actor Rakul Preet Singh commented, “Oh my my Congratulationsssss.” Actor Parneeti Chopra commented, “Congrats lovers!!” Actor Tiger Shroff, too, commented on Alia’s post, writing, “Congratulations.” Reality TV judge Malaika Arora wrote, “God bless.”
However, some fans also wondered if it was true or part of Brahmastra promotions. Alia and Ranbir will be seen together on the screen for the first time in the Ayan Mukerji directorial, which also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy and Nagarjuna. The film releases in theatres on September 9.
Alia and Ranbir dated for some years, and married in April 2022 at Ranbir’s Mumbai home Vastu, in the presence of their close friends and family members. Their wedding pictures were first shared by Alia on Instagram. She shared them with the caption, “Today, surrounded by our family and friends, at home … in our favourite spot – the balcony we’ve spent the last 5 years of our relationship – we got married.”
The couple’s wedding pictures gained a lot of attention on social media. When asked about sharing her feelings openly on the internet, she told Filmfare in a recent interview that she isn’t trying to gain followers with her posts. “I am putting up a picture that I want to put up. I am not doing it because I feel ‘ki mere followers badh jayenge (increase)’ and all. So, if I put up a picture, whatever picture it may be, I am doing it because of what I’m feeling at that moment, and that’s it, there’s no other explanation for it,” she said.
