Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul are expecting a baby.

Actors Sumeet Vyas and Ekta Kaul announced their pregnancy on Sunday, 5 April on Instagram. Sharing photographs of the two, Ekta wrote, “Proudly announcing our new project together. Introducing Jr. KaulVyas (soon) Created, Directed and Produced by US.... @sumeetvyas and I.” Best wishes poured in for the couple from people from the fraternity.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Sumeet Vyas spoke about having the baby during the coronavirus outbreak and what their plans are. “Fortunately, our last check-up was towards the end of February and the next one is in April-end. We’d want to have our baby in my aunt’s maternity hospital, but if the current scenario doesn’t improve, we might have to think of alternate options,” said the Veere Di Wedding actor.

“I don’t want our child to grow up in an environment where they can’t go out to play. But I am an optimist and believe that this too shall pass.”

TV actor Ekta Kaul learnt about her pregnancy after she returned from a bike trip to Ladakh, and mistook it for altitude sickness during the trip. She said, “I felt like a rock star when I learnt the news on my return. I had gone to meet Sumeet who was shooting in Ladakh and wanted to explore the place. So, I made some friends with the crew and we all went for a bike ride. Throughout the trip, I was feeling slightly unwell and marked it down to altitude sickness.”

The couple tied the knot on 15 September 2018 in a traditional ceremony in Jammu, Ekta’s hometown.
