When Alia Bhatt announced on Instagram that she and husband Ranbir Kapoor are expecting a baby, it surprised her fans and followers. But there is a Reddit user who posted to the forum in April that the actor is pregnant. The moderators of BollyBlindsNGossip sub-Reddit have banned the user, calling it a “Quora rumor” which is part of “fan war”.
But now the ban has been lifted and Reddit users have said she should get a prize.
In a Reddit post on BollyBlindsNGossip in April, user newbee_forfun had said, “Apparently Ms. Bhatt is pregnant. Bron is an assistant who is a girlfriend/makeup artist.”
It attracted a lot of negative reactions from members, who called it “outrageous gossip”. Some users even wanted to know why the makeup artist decided to share such personal information with her.
“I love it when people get so salty. The artist heard something. She passed the gossip. This is a gossip sub. I tried to help. Enjoy. Speculate. And I think bye,” newbee_forfun said while responding on a Redditor.
By fake tagging the news, the moderators took prompt action and she was banned and the post also deleted.
When the news was finally confirmed by the actor two days ago, that move was reversed and many Reddit users welcomed newbee_forfun back.
“Give the prize to the redditor who told us this news a month ago,” said one user.
“Now you have to tell us if it’s a boy or a girl. I knew doctors are not allowed to reveal the sex of the child, but maybe the ancestors do,” another added.
The user, meanwhile, thanked the Reddit community and said her source was legit.
“Hi guys 🙂 I’m undone. Thanks for giving me credit. And it’s okay, I understand it sounded unreal at the time. But I know the source was legit. And now don’t ask for more. I will telling when I really know something,” she said in her commentary.
Alia Bhatt confirmed the news Monday in a cryptic Instagram post that read: “Our baby…..coming soon.” The photo accompanying the caption showed Alia on a hospital bed and husband Ranbir Kapoor, pictured from behind, looking at the results of an ultrasound on the monitor.
