In a recent interaction, Mid-Day asked Neha Dhupia about the secrecy around her pregnancy. The mom-to-be finally opened up on the topic and decided to put an end to all the speculations.
Within days after Neha and Angad Bedi's hush-hush wedding (in May 2018), rumors were rife that the reason why they quietly tied the knot was that Neha got pregnant. For several weeks, Angad and Neha denied such reports. Neha's father, too denied the reports until the couple finally decided to break the news on August 24, 2018.
Talking about keeping it a secret, Neha blamed it on the mentality of how the industry works and explained, "I was worried people would stop offering work. It was a good thing my bump wasn’t showing till the sixth month because appearances matter here, and one might be assumed to be unfit for a job. Fortunately, my energy levels are high.”

On being asked about taking a maternity break, Neha replied, “It’s not that I am against women who decide to take those months off. It’s my choice.” The actress is super excited to welcome her baby this November. She feels that Angad will make a great dad as she added, “He is the best dad-in-the-making but I am worried what will happen when he and the baby will gang up on me.”
Neha and Angad also walked the ramp for the first time ever at the Lakme Fashion Week, earlier this month.
