Lara Dutta is pregnant!

The beauty queen, who got married to tennis star Mahesh Bhupathi earlier this year, is all set to become a mommy

Rumours about Lara Dutta’s pregnancy have been floating around for quite some time now. But so far there was no denial or confirmation from the B-town babe. Well, finally it’s official. The sexy Lara Dutta is indeed expecting a baby early next year and she confirmed the news in her latest interview to a website. “Yes, I’m pregnant and I am very excited,” she said. Guess the actor had kept mum for so long because revealing a pregnancy in the first three months is considered inauspicious. Friends of Lara and hubby Mahesh Bhupathi say that the couple was really keen on having a baby soon and they are thrilled about impending parenthood. Lara, who has been traveling extensively for the shooting of Don 2 and has also been accompanying hubby Mahesh on his tennis tours, will now slow down her jet-set lifestyle and focus on the baby. Don 2 will be Lara’s last release before she goes head-on into motherhood. We hear that the actor won’t stop working, but will start focussing a lot more on her film production company post pregnancy. Congratulations to the hot couple!
