Hearts beyond full.” Ileana’s fellow colleagues from Bollywood including Athiya Shetty, Huma Qureshi and Nargis Fakhri sent their best wishes to the actress. Nargis wrote, “Omg, congrats! God bless.” While Athiya and Huma simply dropped a red heart emoji. Sophie Choudry commented, “Omg congratulations, Ileana! God bless your little boy.”
Last month, Ileana D’Cruz shared the first picture with her boyfriend. She had also confessed that while her pregnancy journey had been an emotional one but she was excited to meet the little baby. She added that on days that she got overwhelmed, her boyfriend comforted her and got her through the day. “Being pregnant is such a beautiful beautiful blessing… I didn’t think I’d be fortunate enough to ever experience this so I consider myself so incredibly lucky to be on this journey. I can’t even begin to describe how lovely it is to feel a life growing inside of you. Most days I’m just overwhelmed staring down at my bump going wow – I get to meet you soon,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
