While sources say John Abraham has already been married to Priya, others say it was a recent impulsive decision. Some even speculate that Priya is in the family way

Like his buddy cricketer MS Dhoni whose marriage came as a bolt from the blue, John Abraham has done likewise. Early yesterday, he took to the social network site, Twitter, to state, “Wishing you and your loved ones a blessed 2014! May this year bring you love, good fortune and joy. Love, John and Priya Abraham.”

Signing off as John and Priya Abraham made B-Town go in a tizzy that the star was single no more.

While John did not reveal details about the big hint he dropped, there has been speculations about what prompted him to suddenly spill the beans after playing safe all this while. Sources state that he was already married in December 2011 and felt it’s time to announce it in the New Year. While others maintain his decision could apparently be because Priya could be in the family way.

John was snapped at Mumbai airport on December 28 enroute to the US where he was to usher in the New Year with Priya. Ever since the two were spotted together in 2011, after his split with long-time girlfriend Bipasha Basu, there have been murmurs that the star had tied the knot with Priya. He preferred to remain guarded about his personal life.

Though those in the know claimed that he had met her at the gym which Bipasha and he frequented, John preferred to remain tightlipped about the woman in his life. Later, however, he revealed a bit about Priya, saying that she was a banker, her folks lived in the US and that he met her through common friends -- a lot was still left to conjecture.

In November 2011, he had come out in the open to HitList about the special woman in his life. Some sources had then said that John is fiercely guarded about Priya because he regretted being open about his earlier love story with Bipasha. Now that he has announced it, looks like John’s inhibitions are finally down and he is open about accepting the relationship.

The star is slated to be back in Mumbai soon.
