So the cat is finally out of the bag.
After several rounds of speculation and the couple refraining from making any comments, Lara Dutta has finally confirmed that she is, in fact, pregnant and quite kicked about it.
In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Lara said that they (she and tennis star husband Mahesh Bhupathi) never denied that she was expecting and decided to come out with the news only when they thought the time was right.
On being asked about reports claiming that she's ready to say goodbye to her film career post-pregnancy, Lara reportedly made it clear that she'll never stop doing what she enjoys doing the most.
For now, the actress is looking forward to the release of Don 2.
The expecting couple is very excited and are looking forward to the happy day.
