Freida Pinto Is Expecting Her First Child With Cory Tran

Indian-origin actor Freida Pinto announced her pregnancy on social media. 

MUMBAI, India — Freida Pinto, the Indian actor who has mainly worked in American and British films, announced her pregnancy on social media yesterday.

Freida flaunted her baby bump on Instagram with her fiancé Cory Tran by her side.

“Baby Tran, coming this Fall,” she captioned the post.

Following the happy news, congratulations poured in for the couple.

“I am literally screaming and dancing,” said Indian actress Mrunal Thakur, who shared screen space with Freida in the film “Love Sonia.”

 

“Congratulations, Sweety,” said the ace Mumbai-based fashion stylist Anaita Shroff Adajania.

Pinto and Tran got engaged in November 2019. Tran is a professional photographer who began his professional photography career in Dallas, Texas. His areas of specialty are wildlife photography and sports. 

“Life makes sense; the world makes sense, the past tears and trials make sense, what wise old lovers said about love makes sense, where I am makes sense and where I want to go completely makes sense,” Pinto had posted in 2019 while making her relationship official with Cory.

Pinto was previously engaged to Rohan Antao, her former publicist. She also dated her “Slumdog Millionaire” co-star Dev Patel for six years before separating amicably in December 2014. 

Pinto rose to fame with her role in the Oscar-nominated film “Slumdog Millionaire.” For the film, she was nominated for the EE British Academy Film Award for best actress in a supporting role, the MTV Movie Award for best breakthrough performance, and the Teen Choice Award for choice movie actress – drama, and she won the Palm Springs International Film Festival Award for breakthrough performance. 

Pinto received significant acclaim for her portrayal of her character in Michael Winterbottom’s  2011 film “Trishna.” 

The actor starred in the biographical drama “Desert Dancer” and as the Cretan princess Phaedra in the epic fantasy action picture “Immortals.” She also narrated the documentary “Girl Rising.” 

Pinto bagged prominent roles in films like the Indian drama “Love Sonia” and the fantasy adventure film “Mowgli: Legend of the Jungle” in 2018. She also starred in the Showtime miniseries “Guerrilla” in 2017. 

In 2020, Pinto was seen in the Netflix movie “Hillbilly Elegy,” where she portrayed Usha, J.D. Vance’s love interest. 

While the Indian media has hailed Pinto for breaking the stereotype of Indian women in Western films, the actor is a lesser-known figure in Indian cinema who has rarely been cast in major projects.

The actor is a strong advocate for women’s empowerment and of humanitarian causes.
