In an October 21 Instagram post, Pinto revealed that she and Tran eloped a year prior. “Yes, yes, it’s true. One year ago I married this gorgeous man of my dreams. No, we were not keeping it a secret or anything. We were simply just enjoying life and happily shared the news with anyone who asked,” she wrote. “@coryt and I believe so much in balancing sponta- neity with just the right amount of planning. One day it felt so right and so genuinely aligned that we decided we wanted to make it official. This felt so special and fun and let’s be honest... it reflected the time in our world just perfectly,” she added. Pinto recently opened up to People magazine about what kind of parents she and Tran want to be. “I feel like we both have our ideas on parenting and they gel well together. We are the kind of people who want our kid be someone who has independence in their life, but also at the same time, we don’t want to molly- coddle the kid. We want the kid to have independence. So we’ll see how that goes,” she shared. Pinto and Tran were first spotted together back in October 2017, and they made their public debut as a pair at the US Open in September 2018. Pinto was previously engaged to her former publicist Rohan Antao. She also dated her ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ costar Dev Patel from 2009 to 2014. Speaking of Pinto’s work projects, the young artiste rose to fame with her role in the Oscar-nominated film ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, and since then she has featured in several international projects such as ‘Immortals’ and ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’. -ANI Freida Pinto Welcomes Baby Boy With Husband Cory Tran Shahid Kapoor Shares Poster Of ‘Jersey’ Ahead Of Trailer Release Gul Panag, Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey To Come Up With New Film ‘420 IPC’ Karan Johar, Ranveer Singh Discuss Fashion Trends B ollywood actor Shahid Kapoor recently unveiled a poster of ‘Jersey’, the Hindi remake of the 2019 Telugu blockbuster of the same name.
