After ten years of courtship, Avantika and Imran tied the knot in January, 2011.

"Avantika and Imran will soon become parents as the delivery is due in June next year," sources close to the actor told PTI.

The couple came to know that Avantika is pregnant when few months back, she was diagnosed with dengue and during the test, she was tested positive and Imran and Avantika came to know that they are on their family way.

In a candid conversation, Imran said, "I'm really excited about this. I think I'm more excited than Avantika is. I'm also more ready than she is. Don't tell her I said that!"

When asked whether they have zeroed upon the name of the baby. Imran said, "I'm hoping for a girl, she's hoping for a boy. As you can imagine, there are lots of arguments about the names... Haven't locked anything yet, but there's time."

The actor is taking it slow while Avantika has "downloaded an app that gives her daily info and tips".

Imran wants the baby to have certain qualities of his wife: "her love for life, her warmth, and her ability to make people feel comfortable around her." When questioned on whether he wants his child to take up Bollywood as career, the actor stated emphatically, "The same advice I give everyone who asks; stay the hell away!"

Congratulations to Imran, Avantika!
