Kalkie Koechlin is expecting her first child with boyfriend Guy Hershberg, who is a classical pianist from Jerusalem, Israel. Although the Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is ready to embrace motherhood, she doesn’t wish to rush into marriage. After announcing her pregnancy in September via her Instagram handle, the actress has been quite vocal about it and is often seen flaunting her baby bump like a boss. In a recent interview with Mid-Day, Kalki got candid like never before and spilled the beans about her ‘unexpected pregnancy.’
Baring her heart out, Kalki Koechlin said, “This was an unexpected pregnancy. In the first two months, I didn’t feel any maternal instinct. It felt like an alien invasion, where this little thing was acting like a vampire, sucking out everything from my body.” The actress further added how she felt when she heard the heartbeat for the first time. “When I heard the heartbeat for the first time, I got excited. The first trimester was bad, but I am through that phase and looking forward to the due date in January,” revealed the 35-year-old.
Since Kalki was in a mood to reveal it all, the actress also spoke about her wedding plans with Guy. “We are not averse to marriage, but we don’t want to rush into it just because I am pregnant. If it is necessary for the documentation, bureaucracy and school registrations of our child, we will consider it. But when it comes to our romantic commitments, we have enough validation from each other, and our families, too.”
Before dating Guy Hershberg, Kalki Koechlin was married to filmmaker Anurag Kashyap. They were happily married for four years until their relationship hit the rock bottom. Even after their divorce, Kalki- Anurag hold no grudge for each other and they continue to be friends.
