Actress Bruna Abdullah who has featured in several reality shows and movies like ‘I Hate Luv Storys‘ and ‘Grand Masti‘, is expecting her first child with fiancé Allan Fraser.
The actress who got engaged to her British boyfriend is five months pregnant.
In a chat with Bombay Times, she opened up about embracing motherhood before marriage and how she and her family is quite positive about it.
“A marriage certificate is nothing but a piece of paper, which is simply not enough to bind two people together. Some couples get divorced, while some live together unhappily and even cheat on each other. I believe nothing but love keeps people together. It is widely believed that marriage is a symbol of love. But is it really?” said the actress.

Furthermore, talking about baby, Bruna said, “Our baby is growing well and healthy. Our families were over the moon when we shared the news with them. My mother has waited her whole life for this day. I think this is the most beautiful surprise of our lives. The baby is 22 weeks old and we are waiting with bated breath for him/her to arrive. Allan and I are grateful and ready for parenthood. We are settled and have everything we would need. I’m excited and very happy.”
While the couple is busy with the preparations of welcoming the baby in September, they have plans to tie the knot too. “Allan and I will be planning something soon.”, stated Bruna.

When Bruna was asked about keeping her pregnancy under wraps, she said, “It wasn’t a conscious effort. I had a few projects, including dance shows to finish when I learnt that I was pregnant. I decided to keep the news private, so that I could fulfil my work commitments. I didn’t want anyone to think that I won’t be able to work because I am pregnant. I danced until my fourth month. I felt fit and healthy enough to do that, and I stopped when I was told to. I love what I do and it’s tough for anyone to keep me away from work. After the delivery, I want to spend every second I can with the little one. I will hit the gym as soon as I am allowed to and get back to work.”
The model-turned-actress also spoke about how she met Allan and fell in love. Bruna concluded saying, “I was invited to Allan’s house for dinner by one of his friends in July 2015. We spoke, but sparks didn’t fly at that time. I think he was already dating someone. I bumped into him a month later in Bali, where I was on a short holiday. That’s when I got to know him and fell in love. Allan is intelligent, extremely funny, kind-hearted and passionate. I admire and look up to him. What I like the most about him is his capability to love everyone without any expectations. I fell in love with him when I wasn’t looking for it and was least expecting it to happen.”
Congratulations to the couple!
