One user questioned the actress on why she followed the stereotype of announcing the pregnancy after marriage. The girl congratulated Dia Mirza on breaking the patriarchal traditions in her wedding. However, she was unhappy about why she made her pregnancy news public after marriage.
Dia Mirza decided to give a detailed reply to the user. She said they did not get married because she was pregnant. Dia Mirza gave a befitting reply to the user and wrote,
“Interesting question. 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 a pregnancy. We didn’t announce the pregnancy until we knew it’s safe (medical reasons) to. This is the happiest news of my life, I’ve waited for many many years for this to happen. No way I would hide it for any reason other than medical.
Only answering this because:
1) Having a child is a beautiful gift of life
2) There must never be any shame attached to this beautiful journey
3) As women we must always exercise our choice
4) Whether we choose to be single and parent a child or be in a marriage it is our after all our choice
5) As a society we must un stereotype our idea of what is right or wrong, instead train ourselves to ask what is fair or unfair.”
Wishing Dia Mirza and Vaibhav Rekhi happy parenting.
