Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi have given us more to hoot in the most surprising ways than anyone ever has. Sorry for coming across as Jananis United Co. but the duo has been too cute together in their hush-hush marriage, pregnancy announcement, walking hand-in-hand, and on the ramp at the Lakme Fashion Week later and we're still gushing. In short, let's just admit, the new-to-parenthood couple is always handing out #RelationshipGoals with every step they take together as a jodi. That and the fact that they make a very (very) handsome couple only helps. Well, the two are proud parents to Mehr who is around six months old now and the rest, as they say, is one helluva story!

A story that easily makes for a romantic Bollywood film. If you have somehow slept through it, Angad had to wait for years to convince Neha. Earlier in a post, they had revealed how Angad wooed Neha and how, after four years, she finally said, 'yes.' That's right. yes, It took four years and an intervention from Karan Johar, for the actress to realise that Angad was really in love with her and there was no looking back from there. Revealing that Angad had seen Neha in a gym for the first time when he was 20, she said he had vowed to get to know her. Wow, from there to now being married to her - seems like Angad sure was lucky enough to marry his crush.

She had said, "He tells me that he 1st saw me at the gym when I was 20 & told his friends, ‘I’m going to get to know her 1 day.’ When we moved to Bombay, we met at a mutual friend’s party–it was just us standing in the balcony. I saw a different side of him–beyond the jokes & wit, there was a sensitive man. We were both away from home in Mumbai, so I always relied on him for support. He lived a bachelor life & the 1 place he could always get home food was mine. We became close friends–there was no façade & no attempt to impress one another. Well, no attempts on my part! In fact, he was the 1st call after a major heartbreak & he talked me through it–I’m sure there was a hidden motive! He wasn’t low key about his feelings for me. I was shooting in Punjab & told him about a role for him. He didn’t ask for any details. He only cared about spending time with me & flew down immediately. After that shoot, he showed up at my parents’ doorstep & asked for my hand in marriage….I had no idea about it! This was when I was dating someone else! When Angad met my boyfriend, he was nice to him, but wasn’t subtle about his love for me! Finally, at a party, Karan Johar took us aside & screamed, ‘Can you not see this?! Are you blind?’ You should’ve seen the look on Angad’s face. He had ‘I told you so!’ tattooed on his forehead."
"When we finally decided to get married, he didn’t go down on one knee & propose. He told me I’d already wasted 4 years & declared ‘Chalo Dilli!’ to meet his parents. Then he said, ‘Before you change your mind, pick an outfit because we’re getting married in 2 days!’ Earlier, I loved the set life. I wouldn’t give it up for anything. But now I look forward to coming home to him. I couldn’t imagine myself as someone who runs to the door, but when it’s time for him to come home, guess what I do? He’s currently shooting both day & night. When he comes back at 7 am, he makes me breakfast & then goes to sleep. We’re still figuring it all out & don’t expect to have it all together. Everytime we’ve planned our lives, they’ve fallen apart–so we’re sticking to the unplanned! The wedding, the baby, the parenting..we’re winging it all!!!"
Aww, right? And look at them now, raising their baby Mehr...

It seems Angad first saw Neha when he was playing for the Delhi U-19. He was quite impressed by her running technique. She was preparing for the Miss India contest. He had told Bombay Times, "When I used to play Under-19 cricket in Delhi, during a gym session, I spotted this girl in really tiny shorts. I was impressed with her running technique. I figured out that her name was Neha Dhupia and that she was preparing for the Miss India pageant." Even Neha told the paper, "He said, ‘I don’t want to be just in a relationship with you. Either you are my wife or nothing’. I always believe in one thing — the right time and place. In the past four years, I have seen a huge change in him. He has matured a lot. In the end, everything else goes flying out of the window and friendship is all that matters. I can promise you that we aren’t going to be a couple who will post a lot about ourselves on social media."
Gotta say, they make a really happy family and we wish the lovely couple a very happy first anniversary!
