Purab Kholi talks about fathering a love child with girlfriend Lucy
Actor Purab Kohli is not one to be tied down by the conservative norms of the society and never hesitated to admitted that he has fathered a child with British girlfriend Lucy Payton. The unmarried couple was blessed with a baby girl last year, who they named Inaya.
The ‘Rock On!!’ actor revealed the reason for having a child out of wedlock and said he and Lucy are proud that Inaya is their love child. Purab also talked about his wedding plans with Lucy, the mother of his child, in an interview with The Indian Express.
Purab told the daily, "When Inaya was conceived, we were not married and it didn't matter to me. When Lucy called me and said, 'Hey, we are having a baby,' I said 'Wow. Let's do it.' There was pressure to get married. My mother was the most concerned and my family did say you guys have to get married quickly when she was pregnant.”
He said that he didn’t want to get married that way because he did not want his daughter to feel that they got married only because of her. "She is our love child and has bloomed even more love between both of us and made me love life more. I don't want her to ever feel that it was not meant to be. It was meant in every possible way and she was the force of nature and nothing could stop her from coming into this world," the proud father said.
Purab also revealed that he and Lucy, a UK-based yoga teacher, will get married in a grand ceremony next year, and added that he wanted their little bundle of joy to be present at their wedding.
"We have legally signed the papers and will have a big celebration next year in London. We just want Inaya to be standing on her two feet and hold the flowers while we take our vows," he told the daily.
Purab will be next seen in Shujaat Saudagar-directed ‘Rock On!! 2’, co-starring Arjun Rampal, Farhan Akhtar, Shashank Arora and Shraddha Kapoor. The sequel to the 2008 hit musical drama ‘Rock On!!’ is scheduled to hit screens on November 11.
