'Alia Bhatt and I have been talking about having kids from the day we fell in love,' says soon-to-be daddy Ranbir Kapoor

On June 27, Alia Bhatt announced her pregnancy on social media by sharing a picture from one of her sonography sessions. As per reports, she will give birth to her first child with Ranbir Kapoor in December this year. While it is a known fact that Alia and Ranbir are fond of children, the latter revealed in an interview that they have been talking about having kids from the time they fell in love. 

Talking to a magazine while promoting his film Shamshera, Ranbir shared, "Alia and I have been talking about having kids from the first day we met and fell in love. I’ve always wanted children. And she wants children. To start a new chapter in life... I am extremely excited about that, I can’t wait."

In a throwback interview, Alia had spoken about getting married only for children. "Maybe, people expect me to get married at 30, but I might surprise myself as well and get married before that. Nothing is cast in stone, right? So, if I feel that I’m in a position where I want to take such a step, then I will. I’ve always believed that I would get married because of kids. So, if I am like, ‘This is the time I want to have my children and am also ready to have babies,’ I will get married," Alia had told. 

Just a few days before Alia announced her pregnancy, Ranbir dropped in a hint at starting a family. At the trailer launch of Shamshera, the actor said, "Abhi mujhe bahot kaam karna hai sir. Abhi mujhe family banani hai, unke liye kaam karna hai. Pehle mai khudke liye kaam karraha tha."
