Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D’souza are the must-mentions when one talks about Bollywood’s most endearing real-life couples. In the gloomy pool of heartbroken Bollywood couples, Genelia and Riteish stand out like unicorns.
They began their careers together with the same film and in no time, the adorable reel couple turned into crazy teen lovebirds. Genelia was a cute bubbly teen and Riteish was yet to embark his Bollywood journey when they started dating. Initially, the duo kept it all hidden from Genelia’s father and paparazzi! 😉
But after years of dating, they tied the knot in an auspicious fairytale-like wedding ceremony and are now parents to two cute lil munchkins – Riaan and Rahyl.
Today, the Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na actress turns 30 and Riteish, like always, melted our hearts with the most endearing wish ever. He took it to Facebook and shared an adorably raw selfie with her and wrote, “Happy Birthday Baiko @geneliad you are an incredible woman, my best friend, my biggest support & the strongest mother. Main bin tumhare bikhar jaata”
Happy Birthday Baiko @geneliad you are an incredible woman,my best friend, my biggest support & the strongest mother. बिन तुम्हारे मैं बिखर जाता
And yet again, we are totally floored by their love!
“Happy anniversary, Baiko @geneliad – I must have definitely done something right in my previous life. I better be good this time coz I want you in my next,” read Riteish’s marriage anniversary wish last year.
How heartwarming it is to see a man acknowledging his wife’s presence in his life! And of course, Genelia too is one gem of a partner who never stops playing the role of a best friend for his hubby!
Time and then, the married love birds have often spoken about their relationship, journey and togetherness – and warmed our hearts! Here are a few nicest things they have ever said about each other which are bound to crave for a relationship like their’s.
– We still write letters to each other; not SMSes or emails but proper handwritten ones. When we were dating, I used to write a letter every day, which she would have to hide at home,”revealed Riteish.
“In these 14 years, we have met so many people and become more mature. Marriage, children and responsibilities can change you but it’s important to retain and remember the aspects that made you fall in love in the first place,” he said in an interview.
– “It’s like if I step out, I will look for her hand. It’s a rarity that I will be walking with her without holding her hand.”
– “If he’s out of town, I will still message him ‘good morning’ or ‘good night.’ So in the way, we still start and end the day with each other,” Genelia said.
You two are love goals, Riteish and Genelia! You restore our faith in love and marriages.
And, Happy Birthday, Genelia! <3
