Babymoon destinations inspired by your favorite Bollywood celebrities:
1. Sonam Kapoor & Anand Ahuja
Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor and businessman Anand Ahuja tied the knot in Mumbai in May 2018. In March 2022 Sonam took to Instagram to post a series of monochromatic shots of the couple. The post announced the couple’s pregnancy as Sonam Kapoor flaunted the baby bump. The soon-to-be-parents have been spending time at their London home. They recently shared a video from Tuscany, Italy. This trip was presumed to be their babymoon. What better destination, to spend some romantic time, than Italy. It’s a schengen destination that permits travellers to visit all Schengen countries with a single Schengen visa. The duo was seen soaking under the Tuscan sun in a video shared by the actress. In the course of their ongoing pregnancy, the couple has also taken a trip to another love-city Paris.
2. Shahid Kapoor & Mira Rajput Kapoor

The couple also has a daughter, Samisha Shetty Kundra, who was born through surrogacy in 2020.
