Congratulations are in order for Rochelle Rao and Keith Sequeira who welcomed their first baby on October 1.

“Thank you guys for all your undying love and support through this amazing journey we love you. I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. 1 Samuel 1:27,” the post read further.
Rochelle, who is a former Miss India and a renowned model and host, and Keith, who is also an actor and model, had announced their pregnancy on August 2. Sharing dreamy pictures of their maternity shoot, they had written, “Two tiny hands, two tiny feet, a baby girl or boy we can’t wait to meet! Yes, you guessed it right, we are expecting! Thank you Jesus for this incredible gift and all of you for your unending love and support. Please continue to bless and pray for us on this new journey! Keith & Rochelle + One.”
The couple’s love story began in Mumbai when Rochelle was pursuing a career in the film industry and Keith had just ended his first marriage with Samyukta Singh. Their paths crossed in a church group and they soon became friends.
Soon, their friendship blossomed into love. “But soon, I realised that Keith was what I was looking for-sweet, intelligent and serious about love. I fell for him, but he was oblivious until his birthday when I went all out with gifts, and he finally got the hint. Days later, while walking me home, he kissed me. That’s how we began dating,” Rochelle shared with Humans of Bombay.
While they managed to keep the first two months of their relationship private, they were soon papped together. Soon, their relationship was thrust into the spotlight as they appeared on Bigg Boss 9.
“I told him, ‘I don’t mind, as long as I have you.’ Many thought our relationship was a publicity stunt, but we couldn’t care less! We entered the Bigg Boss house, and it was going well-Keith would even make me coffee every day,” Rochelle added.
After Bigg Boss, they were also seen in Nach Baliye 9.
Finally, Keith proposed to Rochelle in 2018 and they tied the knot in the presence of their close friends and family members in 2018. “Our vows were beautiful, and after, we ate dosas and danced with our loved ones. It’s been 4 years since, and we still keep each other on our toes. But he keeps me centred, too! Every day, I wake up, knowing I’ve Keith’s coffee and smile to look forward to,” the model had shared earlier.
