Actor Esha Deol is expecting her first child with husband, businessman Bharat Takhtani later this year. The two got married on June 29, 2012 at Iskon temple in Juhu, Mumbai and wanted some time before starting a family.

Though the Deol family is yet to confirm the news , Mumbai Mirror quoted Deol’s close friend, Ram Kamal Mukherjee (who is writing a second book about Hema Malini—Beyond the Dream Girl), as saying, “Yes, Esha is pregnant and everyone in the family is delighted. After Ahana’s son – Darein, Hemaji and Dharamji are eagerly waiting to be grandparents again.” When Esha’s younger sister, Ahana, was pregnant last year, it was Esha who did all the planning and shopping for the mommy-to-be and the baby.

According to the report, mommy-to-be Esha is now staying with her mother, Hema Malini in her Juhu bungalow and visits her in-laws in Bandra regularly. “An excited Hemaji is already planning how to make her (Esha) room more child-friendly. The baby should arrive towards the year-end,” the report quoted a source as saying.

Esha and Bharat were school-time buddies but they again got to meet each other on the sets of Hema Malini’s directorial Tell Me O Kkhuda (2011), where they fell in love and tied the knot the next year.

Last week, actors Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Kemmu had confirmed that they are expecting their first child later this year. Looks like Bollywood will welcome quite a few winter babies this year.
