Mumbai: Just days before his 51st birthday, Sanjay Dutt has received the best news he could have ever hoped for. The actor who already has a daughter, Trishala, from his first marriage is set to have his first baby with wife Manyata.
The couple, that had always wanted to go the family way, will reportedly have a new addition to their family by January 2011. Ecstatic with his wife’s pregnancy, Sanjay broke the happy news to his friends during the recent IIFA in Colombo.
It’s reported that Manyata had been trying to conceive for almost two years now. And the actor had been very public about his wish to have a child with Manyata. If one recalls, the actor on his last birthday said, “Besides my freedom what I really want is to be a father, please pray for me.”
And his wish seems to have come true now. According to sources, the Dutts have been confiding in their close friends about the impending new arrival in their house.
Confirming the news a source said, “Friends who attended a film award event at Colombo with the Dutts first heard the good news there and were thrilled to bits on the ecstatic couple’s behalf. Though the Dutts don’t have a particular preference about having a son or a daughter, buzz is that Sanjay is hoping it’s a boy since he already has a daughter, Trishala.”
