“There should never be any shame from this beautiful journey.” Actress and activist Dia Mirza responded to a man’s response on social media, questioning the timing of her pregnancy announcement, saying that as women, ‘we should always exercise our choice’.
After getting married in February, Diya faced a lot of trolling while announcing her pregnancy last week. When a man questioned why the actor could not declare his pregnancy before marriage and break stereotypes because he worked with a female priest at his wedding, the actor replied, “Interesting question.” At first, we did not get married because we were having children together. We were already married because we wanted to spend our lives together. We came to know that we were going to have a baby while we were planning our wedding. So this marriage is not the result of pregnancy. We did not declare pregnancy until we knew its safe (medical reasons). This is the happiest news of my life. I have waited many years for this to happen. By no means can I hide it for any reason other than therapy.
Diya also addressed why she opted in on social media. “To answer only for this reason: 1) Having a child is a beautiful gift of life. 2) There should never be any shame associated with this beautiful journey. 3) As women we should always exercise our choice 4) What We choose singles and parents. Having a child or a wedding. It is after all our choice. 5) As a society, instead of training ourselves to ask what is fair or unfair, right. Or unite our view of what is wrong. “
