News of actor Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanayata being pregnant has got the entire family and close friends celebrating. One person who’s particularly excited is Maanayata’s best friend, actress Ameesha Patel.
Speaking to HT City, Patel, who posted a picture of herself with a visibly pregnant Maanayata on Twitter on Saturday, reveals the mood in the Dutt household. “Yesterday, we celebrated news of the baby with a party at the Dutts’ house. Since Maanayata feels nauseous, we can’t go out. So, a few close friends got together and we cut a cake,” Patel says. While Patel adds Maanayata looks like a “blushing bride” these days, Sanjay, 50, is busy playing the concerned father: “Sanjay is particular about her diet and medication. He gets worried if she has any pain.”
The mommy-to-be, meanwhile, is busy tackling another problem. “She tells me that she’s bored of home food and keeps craving for specific foods that I send her. I also sent her a pink teddy bear recently… she should get used to toys in the house.”
With the good news expected to arrive by year-end, preparations are already on. “Maanayata and I plan to go to Dubai and Hong Kong to shop for the baby whenever the doctor allows. She’s been wanting a child for a really long time… it’ll complete their family.”
