Oh God, no, please! Abhi nahi!” is how crick­eter Yu­vraj Singh’s mother Shab­nam Singh re­acted to spec­u­la­tion about daugh­ter-in-law, ac­tor Hazel Keech, be­ing preg­nant. The ru­mour kicked off on In­sta­gram af­ter a pho­tog­ra­pher posted a pic­ture of Hazel at the Mum­bai air­port, and wrote, “Preg­nant Hazel Keech snapped.” He later deleted the word “preg­nant” from his post. In an exclusive chat, Shab­nam rub­bished the spec­u­la­tion and said there’s still time be­fore Yu­vraj and Hazel plan a fam­ily. “Hazel is not preg­nant. It’s wrong for some­body to say this... Abhi toh sirf dus ma­heene huye hain shaadi ko (It has just been 10 months since their wed­ding). It’s funny how peo­ple want to be on su­per ex­press mode. Let them en­joy their mar­ried life. Bachche toh saari umar paalne hain,” she said. Shab­nam ar­gues that be­ing a celebrity doesn’t mean that one’s pri­vacy can be com­pro­mised. “It will be a very happy mo­ment for us when it does hap­pen, but spread­ing ru­mours like these is not fair,” she says. This isn’t the first time that Hazel’s preg­nancy ru­mours have sent gos­sip­mon­gers in a tizzy. In April, in an in­ter­view that Hazel gave to an en­ter­tain­ment por­tal, her an­swer to a ques­tion about moth­er­hood was “blown out of pro­por­tion”, and re­ports sug­gest­ing that she was ex­pect­ing a child did the rounds. The cou­ple got mar­ried in Novem­ber 2016, and ever since, there has been buzz about their per­sonal life.
