Shilpa Shetty has confirmed reports that she is expecting her first child with husband Raj Kundra.
The 36-year-old Bollywood star, who found international fame on UK's 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2007, took to her Twitter page to tell fans about her happy news.
"Tweetos, 'YES' an addition to our family is our confirmation to all queries :) We seek blessings from all in this very beautiful phase of our lives," the Daily mail quoted her as writing.
This is the first child for Shetty, but her London-based businessman Kundra husband, who she married in 2009, has a daughter from a previous relationship.
The actress is thought to be in her second trimester.
"Shilpa suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, so this time Raj and she did not want to break the news till the first trimester was complete. Now, she has started telling her close friends," a source close to the actress told the Times of India.
