Actor Sumeet Vyas’s actor wife Ekta Kaul has revealed she was already pregnant during their bike ride to Ladakh but she was unaware of the news and credited her bad health as altitude sickness. The couple recently announced the big news on Instagram and are expecting the child in a few weeks.

Ekta had posted a picture from their adventure trip to Ladakh in November. She told Mumbai Mirror in an interview, “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.”

Sumeet has said his aunt is a gynaecologist and Ekta would be delivering the baby at her maternity hospital. Sharing his plans for Ektas delivery, Sumeet said, “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.”


He also said that his top priority is the safety of the child. “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.”
