After 5 months of announcing their engagement, Team India all rounder Hardik Pandya recently revealed that Nataša Stanković, his fiancee is expecting a baby on 31st May, and social media has been filled with congratulatory messages towards India’s newest superstar couple. The engagement, which took place all the way back in 1st Jan, made all the headlines in the country, but Pandya has claimed that his parents were unaware of it!
In a recent interview, Hardik Pandya opened up about his relation with the Serbian model and actress. Speaking to senior cricket commentator harsha Bhogle on Cricbuzz, the Men in Blue star revealed how the two met for the firsty time.
“I got her by talking. She saw someone in a hat at a place where I met her, wearing a hat, a chain, a watch, at 1 am. So she thought he is ‘alag prakaar ka aadmi aaya’ (different kind of person came). That is when I started talking to her, started knowing each other,” Pandya remembered the early days with his betrothed.
However, Pandya dropped the bombshell when he said that his parents, even his older brother and fellow Indian cricketer Krunal was unaware of his engagement back on New Year’s eve.
“Mom and dad didn’t know, even Krunal only got to know two days before when I told him I’m thinking this (getting engaged) I said I had enough in my life,” the Mumbai Indians icon said in the interview.
Pandya got engaged to the Big Boss contestant in Dubai. Six months into their journey together, the couple have been constant fan-service on social media, with their hilarious acts together during the lock down.
However, all the surprises and funny banters aside, the 26 year old went on saying how the relation with Nataša helped him improve.
“Someone who I have found, who I actually love and I think I’m learning and I’m becoming a better man. I’m trying to go beyond myself. I’m keeping myself aside and keeping someone as priority,” he added.
