Aishwarya and Abhishek expecting first baby

Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai, famous for her role in hit film Bride & Prejudice, is pregnant. It will be the first child for the 37-year-old actress and her actor husband Abhishek Bachchan, 35, who married back in 2007. The news was broken by Abhishek's father, actor and producer Amitabh Bachchan, who tweeted today:  'NEWS NEWS NEWS!! I am going to become a grandfather. Aishwarya expecting... So happy and thrilled!!!'
Amitabh later wrote that the news had only just been confirmed. Aishwarya and her husband, who attended this year's Oscar ceremony in Hollywood, are known as a 'super couple' in their native India, having both starred in a number of hit Bollywood films. The actress has won two Filmfare Awards (the Hindi equivalent of the Oscars) and crossed over into English-speaking cinema, appearing in 2004 hit Bride & Prejudice and The Pink Panther 2 alongside Steve Martin in 2009.
She also won the Miss World Beauty pageant back in 1994 and was once dubbed by People magazine as one of the 'world's most beautiful women.' But despite her worldwide success, she has previously ruled out a more permanent move to try her luck in Hollywood. 'I'd be happy to stay in my country,' she once told David Letterman. 'But we are gypsies in this industry. You go where work takes you.'
