Actress Genelia , best known for her roles in Santhosh Subramaniam and Uthamaputhiran, is pregnant. The actress tied the knot with Bollywood actor and longtime boyfriend Riteish Deshmukh in 2012. Pregnancy rumours have been dogging the couple ever since, but it was her recent appearance at a film-related event in Mumbai that gave credence to the reports. Dressed in a black jumpsuit, the actress looked obviously pregnant but chose not to address the issue. In a recent interview though, Riteish said, “Yes! She is pregnant. We are looking forward to the baby and we are very excited about it.”

Genelia was last seen in the Vijay-starrer Velayudham, and more recently made a cameo appearance in the Salman Khan movie Jai Ho (remake of AR Murugadoss’ Telugu flick Stalin). She is currently awaiting the release of a couple of Hindi movies and has temporarily put her acting career on hold. Sources tell us that the actress may take a break from work for a couple of years.
