The road to parenthood: Celebrity edition


By Cutacut Editorial Team

KARACHI: Perhaps the most common reason why celebrities are ‘celebrities’ is because they allow us to live vicariously through them. The glitz, the glamour, the apparent freedom and the luxury lifestyle is enough to attract anyone. As we grow fonder of certain figures, we also become deeply invested in their personal lives. Take Zendaya and Tom Holland for instance. The Hollywood couple has not officially revealed anything yet the internet has been full of speculations about their engagement. And when a couple does get married, we move on to being invested in their families. When are they going to have a baby? Oh my God, is that a baby bump we spot? What are they going to name their child? These are all questions that all of us have obsessed over atleast once in our lives. Like any other year, 2022 also saw a parade of celebrities tying the knot. And even more exciting is the fact that some of the most followed celebrity couples also became parents this year.

Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor

The it couple of B-town, the two actors tied the knot in April this year. Not too long after that, they revealed that they will be becoming parents soon as well. While there was a lot of talk about how Alia Bhatt could be pregnant so soon and whether they rushed the wedding because of the pregnancy, the couple did not let naysayers rain on their parade. On November 6, Alia Bhatt took to Instagram to announce that they had welcomed their daughter into this world. Later, the couple revealed their daughter’s name decided by Neetu Kapoor: Raha.

Srha Asghar and Umer Murtaza

If we were to list down some of the most talented Pakistani actors at the moment, Srha Asghar would definitely make it amongst the younger pool of artists. Not only has she proven to be a performer with her dance routines with Rabya Kulsoom, she is also a powerhouse of a tv actor. More recently, however, Srha Asghar gave birth to her first child. And she recorded her pregnancy journey just the way we would expect her to. Dancing and exercising her way through the 9 months, Asghar and her husband Umer Murtaza welcomed their baby into this world just last month.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky

Two things are for sure: Nearly everybody is interested in knowing what Rihanna is up to, and whatever she does, she looks classy doing it. Rihanna’s pregnancy was sported the same way. Expecting her first child with long-term boyfriend A$AP Rocky, Rihanna flaunted her baby bump like a queen. The couple welcomed their baby boy in May 2022.

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas

This is perhaps the most heartwarming story to tell. Indian actor Priyanka Chopra and American singer Nick Jonas who got married in 2018 proved that parenthood can exist in more than one ways. Some couples may not be able to conceive their old children or might want to adopt or sign up for surrogacy. Choosing the path of surrogacy, Chopra and Jonas welcomed their daughter Malti Marie Chopra Jonas in January of this year. However, a premature child, the little one spent over a 100 days in the NICU before coming home to her parents.

Sadaf Kanwal and Shahroz Sabzwari

Yet another heartwarming story about how families do not necessarily have to share the same blood. The couple who got married in 2020 welcomed their first daughter together in August 2022. While this is Shahroz Sabzwari’s second time becoming a father to a girl, the excitement was no less. Specially sweet to witness were the moments between the newborn, Zahra, and her step-sister, Nooreh. Sadaf Kanwal and Syra Yousuf, too, seem to be filled with joy over the littles ones finding each other’s company.
