Being a celebrity and being private about one’s personal affairs don’t quite go hand in hand, and the absurdest of rumours are but inevitable if you’re a star like John Abraham.
For instance, after the ­actor-producer got married to his girlfriend Priya Runchal earlier this year in a low-key ceremony in the USA, rumour now has it that Priya is not in the country because she is pregnant.

So, we asked the 41-year-old actor himself, if there is any truth to these reports. “No! There’s nothing true about that. We aren’t ­planning a baby anytime soon. Priya is studying in London. She is a very ­intelligent girl, it’s only fair that she completes her course (MBA),” he laughs, adding, “Well, we shall cross the bridge when it comes.”
Alright then, is the ­couple planning to throw a ­reception for their industry friends who have ­reportedly been ­expecting one, since the marriage was a strictly ­family affair? “Well, we haven’t discussed that yet, we are both busy. We will take that up once she is back,” says John.
The two reportedly got hitched on New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles in January this year. The event was ­attended only by close family members of both sides. John later broke the news on Twitter by posting, “Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed 2014! May this year bring you love, good fortune and joy. Love, John and Priya Abraham.”
