April 08 : Dia Mirza, who recently married businessman Vaibhav Rekhi, and also announced her pregnancy, celebrated the birthday of her stepdaughter Samaira.
Vaibhav's ex-wife Sunaina Rekhi shared a video on her Instagram handle, wherein Vaibhav and Sunaina can be seen wishing Samaira as she turned 12. It seemed that Dia was recording the celebrations as the birthday girl cut the cake. Family members and Samaira’s friends were also seen in the video. Vaibhav was also seen planting a kiss on her cheek. Sunaina, who captioned the video as “Family”, tagged Dia in it. The actress dropped a heart emoji in the comments section.
Recently, Dia was seen holidaying with Vaibhav and his daughter in Maldives, when the actress spent some quality time with her. Dia had shared candid pictures of her against some stunning backdrops. Her pictures suggested that she had a gala time with Samaira in Maldives. At Dia's wedding, Samaira had also walked her down the aisle with a placard that read “Papa’s Girls”.
While she was in Maldives, Dia announced her first pregnancy as she penned a sweet note and shared a picture of herself cradling her baby bump. “Blessed to be... One with Mother Earth... One with the Life Force that is the beginning of everything... Of all stories. Lullabies. Songs. Of new saplings. And the blossoming of hope. Blessed to cradle this purest of all dreams in my womb Photo by @vaibh_r #SunsetKeDiVaNe”
While her fans and friends started pouring in good wishes, netizens also criticised her for announcing her pregnancy soon after her wedding. Responding to a comment on her Instagram post, Dia wrote, “There must never be any shame attached to this beautiful journey...Firstly, we didn’t marry because we were having a baby together. We were already marrying as we wanted to spend our lives together. We discovered we were going to have a baby while we were planning our wedding. So this marriage is not the result of pregnancy. We didn’t announce the pregnancy until we knew its safe (medical reasons).”
Meanwhile, on the work front, Dia was last seen in Thappad that starred Taapsee Pannu in the lead role.
