In February 2024, Deepika and Ranveer, who married in 2018 in Italy, announced her pregnancy via a joint Instagram post.

Deepika on parenthood

In an interview to Vogue Singapore in January 2024, Deepika had expressed her desire for parenthood, saying, “Ranveer and I love children. We look forward to the day when we will start our own family... In this industry, it’s easy to get carried away by fame and money. But no one treats me like a celebrity at home. I am a daughter and a sister first. I don’t want that to change. My family keeps me grounded and Ranveer and I hope to inculcate the same values in our children.”
