Dia Mirza hits back at a troll who questioned the timing of her pregnancy announcement
Dia Mirza recently shared the sweetest pregnancy announcement as she shared a picture of herself flaunting her Baby bump. The Thappad recently tied the knot with Vaibhav Rekhi and the couple are expecting their first child together. But, looks like some trolls could not look past the fact that Dia was pregnant before her marriage. A troll wrote on Dia’s post about her questionable timing of announcing her pregnancy.
Pointing out that Dia may have been pregnant before the marriage but being scared of the stereotypes, she chose not to reveal the news, the troll’s comment read, “That’s so good, congrats. But the problem is, she tried to break the stereotypes with woman priest, why couldn’t she announce her pregnancy before the marriage? Isn’t becoming pregnant after marriage a stereotype we follow? Why can’t women get pregnant before marriage?”
But Dia gave a very detailed reply as to why she waited all this time to reveal her pregnancy. The actress said that it was only due to medical reasons that she waited all this while to make the news official, “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 pregnancy. We didn’t announce the pregnancy until we knew its safe (medical reasons). 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.”
She further wrote, “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 after all our choice 5) As a society we must un stereotype our idea of what is right or wrong, instead of training ourselves to ask what is fair or unfair.”
