Dev D actress Mahie Gill said her daughter will turn three years old in August this year
Bollywood actress Mahie Gill, who is known for her bold persona on screen is also a strong person in life. However, recently, Mahie has grabbed headlines for a different reason. The actress has revealed that she has a daughter named Veronica, who will turn three in August this year.
In an interview with leading Hindi newspaper Navbharat Times, the actress stated that she currently lives with her businessman boyfriend who owns hotels and casinos across Goa and that both have a daughter. The actress didn’t reveal his name stating that he wants to stay away from the limelight.
She also said they are in no hurry of tying the knot as she believes that families and children can be made without marriage. "What is the need for marriage? It all depends on the thinking. Families and children can be had without marriage. There should be no problem with having children without marriage. I do not think there is a problem... Marriage is a beautiful thing, but marrying or not is a personal choice," she said.
Mahie said, "I am very proud that I am a mother of a daughter. Yes, I have not been married yet. When I want to marry, I will. In August of this year, my child will be three-years-old."
The 43-year-old actress also said, "I have a boyfriend. He is not catholic. He is a businessman. I'd love to name him, but he wants to stay out of the limelight. My boyfriend owns hotels and casinos across Goa as well as globally. I was with him when he opened a venture in Georgia recently. Sometimes, it feels like we're in a long-distance relationship as he travels a lot. But whenever he's in Goa, I move there as both of us own properties there."
When she was asked for the reason behind naming her daughter Veronica, she replied, "When Jesus was dragged on the cross, and he was being taken to Jerusalem to crucified, a woman dared to wipe his face with her handkerchief, and his image was impressed upon it. That woman was called Veronica. And the meaning is, she who brings victory to the true image. I liked the name and its meaning, and that’s why named my daughter Veronica."
Mahie has managed to keep her daughter out of the eye of media and paparazzi. She has also managed to keep Veronica away on social media.
Mahie Gill was last seen in ALTBalaji web-series Apharan - Sabka Katega with Arunoday Singh. She also grabbed headlines recently after she was attacked on the sets of her work-in-progress show, Fixer.
