Anushka Sharma, who welcomed baby daughter Vamika in January, posted a heart emoji. Jacqueline Fernandez, Konkona Sen Sharma, Gauahar Khan, Tahira Kashyap, Shibani Dandekar and Maheep Kapoor also posted comments.

Dia Mirza married businessman Vaibhav Rekhi in February. On Thursday, she shared a picture of herself in the Maldives, a baby bump visible through her red kaftan. “Blessed to be… One with Mother Earth… One with the Life Force that is the beginning of everything… Of all stories. Lullabies. Songs. Of new saplings. And the blossoming of hope. Blessed to cradle this purest of all dreams in my womb,” the 39-year-old actress wrote in her post.
Priyanka Chopra and Dia Mirza often comment on each other’s posts. “I remember this girl,” Dia wrote on this throwback picture Priyanka Chopra shared of herself from when she was “lean, mean and all of 17.”
Dia Mirza, best-known for her work in films such as Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein, Dus, Sanju and My Brother Nikhil, married Vaibhav Rekhi on February 15 in an intimate ceremony attended by family and very close friends, among them actress Aditi Rao Hydari. She was last seen in 2020 film Thappad.
