One of the most popular singers of the industry, Sunidhi Chauhan married music composer Hitesh Sonik in 2012 after dating for 2 years. Earlier confirming her pregnancy news, Sunidhi told The Indian Express, “Its a new chapter in Sunidhi’s life and we all are very happy and equally excited. Sunidhi has always been a hardworking child and has made us all proud with her work. But now that we will soon be grandparents I just can’t contain my happiness. She is finishing her prior commitments but as a family, we have taken a decision to not let her do outstation shows as her health is of utmost priority to us.” And so, here’s wishing a hearty congratulation to the new parents from India.com.
