Dia Mirza shared her near death experience during pregnancy. In a recent interview with ETimes, the actress revealed her near death experience in the 5th month of her pregnancy. In 2021, Mirza shared the good news with her admirers on Instagram in the month of April. She also announced her baby’s arrival on May 14, in the month of July.
While looking back at the year gone by, the actress talks about her step into the world of motherhood and the complications it came with.
Mirza’s Near Death Experience during Pregnancy
In an interview with ETimes, Mirza spoke at length about the complications that arose during the fifth month of her pregnancy.
While asked about the near-death experience which was hinted at in her Instagram post, the actress replied, “I had to go in for an appendectomy in the fifth month of my pregnancy. I was in and out of hospital subsequently because of an acute bacterial infection that could have led to sepsis while I was in my sixth month of pregnancy. My baby had to be delivered because my placenta had started to haemorrhage. It was a tough time and I’m grateful for my gynecologist who saved our lives.”
Dia spoke about Avyaan being a premature baby and also mentioned that he had to stay in the NICU for a while after his birth.

Becoming a Mother During a Pandemic
Bringing a child into the world during a crisis, especially in the middle of a pandemic, is not easy. Mirza talked about her experience with motherhood in the difficult times. She said, “To bring a child into a world in crisis has a profound impact on all our choices. I hope that someday soon we won’t have to wear masks and our children can have normalcy in their lives. Our daughter is studying online and that is a struggle. Our son is too young to know the difference. But while we stay home, we cherish the time we have together and do all we can to make this time engaging, happy and safe for our children.”
Mirza tied the knot with her longtime boyfriend Vaibhav Rekhi last year. The couple welcomed their baby boy Avyaan Azaad Rekhi in the same year. For Vaibhav, it is his second child as he is already blessed with a baby girl, Samaira Rekh from his previous marriage, who is no less than a best friend to Dia.
