  • Arjun Rampal recently announced his girlfriend Gabriella's pregnancy on Instagram with the message, "Blessed to have you and start all over again.Thank you baby for this baby." By announcing a baby out of wedlock, Arjun has taken a bold step to transform societal taboos and bring about a change in conventional thinking.

  • Neha and Angad tied the knot in an intimate ceremony last year while Neha was already pregnant. The couple's daughter Mehr is as cute as a button and they seem to be over the moon with happiness.

  • Sushmita has adopted not one but two beautiful baby girls, and is raising them a single parent. We applaud her for having the courage to go against convention and become inspiration for many other single women.

  • One of the biggest controversies to hit Bollywood, Sridevi was 7 months preggers with Janhvi when Boney Kapoor divorced his wife and married her in 1996. Sridevi openly admitted she was dating a married man and that she was pregnant before marriage, something that was unheard of in that time.

  • Sarika and Kamal Hassan had a live in relationship, and their first daughter Shruti was born in 1986 when they were still unmarried. They went on to tie the knot, and Sarika gave birth to their second daughter Akshara soon after.

  • Her marriage to Bobby Mukherjee was a private affair in the year 2006, and sources believe it was a move to support an unplanned pregnancy.
