Two months after Alia Bhatt tied the knot with actor Ranbir Kapoor, the couple announced they are expecting their first child together. The news took a lot of fans by surprise. Alia took to Instagram on Monday morning to share the news. The post had her and her husband Ranbir looking at sonography. Another photo in post features a Lion, Lioness and a cub. 

"Our baby ….. coming soon," Alia captioned the post.
 

While many fans speculated whether the post was an elaborate publicity stunt by the couple in a run-up to their big release- 'Brahmastra', social media posts of the couple's family members sort of confirmed the news to be indeed true.

Filmmaker Karan Johar, whom Alia considers a part of her family and a mentor-cum-father figure, too reacted on the news and wrote, "So much love for them. My baby is going to be a mother! I can't express my feeling....so so so excited! Love you both!" 

Perhaps the most interesting reaction came from Neetu Kapoor, Ranbir's mother. Kapoor who is currently celebrating the success of her film 'Jugjugg Jeeyo' and judging a reality show, first looked a little surprised and then smiled politely as paps wished her on the news.
