Just a few days back Kalki Koechlin gave her fans and followers a pleasant surprise by announcing her pregnancy. The ‘Dev.D’ actress is expecting her first child with boyfriend Guy Hershberg. Interestingly, it was recently when Kalki revealed that she is dating Israeli pianist and music teacher, Hershberg. The fact is they are dating for more than two years now.

The ‘Sacred Games 2’ actress in a recent interview opened up about how she is preparing to embrace motherhood and what advice her ex-husband Anurag Kashyap gave her about parenting.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Kalki was asked about having a child out of wedlock, to which she replied, “What is this term ‘out of wedlock’? It belongs in a Shakespearean drama and not in a millennial world. Marriage can be useful for bureaucracy but it is not a sign of love. Only time and consistency tell of a strong relationship.”

Revealing her first thought after learning about her pregnancy, Kalki said, “I called for another pregnancy test, I just couldn’t believe it. It was so unplanned!”

Kalki was earlier married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. Even after their divorce, both Kalki and Anurag share a very strong bond. Revealing Anurag’s reaction to her pregnancy, the ‘Gully Boy’ actress shared, “Anurag just welcomed me to the parents’ club and told me to call if I need anything. Seeing his daughter Aaliyah (from his first marriage) growing up and my own brother Oriel too, I have already got a glimpse into this role of a lifetime.”

Kalki will be welcoming her child through water-birth in Goa. She is expecting her Baby‘s arrival in December this year.
