Shreya has been regularly updating her followers on her pregnancy journey on social media. She had first announced her pregnancy on 4th March this year by sharing a photo on Instagram in which she’s seen cradling her baby bump. Her post read, “Baby #Shreyaditya is on its way! @shiladitya and me are thrilled to share this news with you all. Need all your love and blessings as we prepare ourselves for this new chapter in our lives,”. Her husband, entrepreneur Shiladitya Mukhopadhyaya posted the same image on his Instagram handle with the caption, “Cannot wait to cherish this bundle of excitement coming up in our lives and a whole new experience to share with @shreyaghoshal.”
Shreya tied the knot with Shiladitya in a traditional ceremony on 5th February 2015, after being together for almost a decade. Shreya has won the National Award for the Best Playback Singer four times, and seven Filmfare awards, of which the most recent was for the song ‘Ghoomar‘ from Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 2019 film Padmaavat.
We wish the lovely couple all the very best and loads of happiness for their new journey ahead as parents, and can’t wait to see pictures of the little one!
