“He’s held me when he feels me starting to crack"
Ileana D’Cruz has introduced her boyfriend to the public, following months of speculation.
The actress’ personal life came into the spotlight when she surprisingly announced she was pregnant.
While some congratulated her, others wondered who the father is.
This led to some judgemental comments, prompting some fans to come to Ileana’s defence.
Seemingly wanting to keep her partner out of the public eye, Ileana remained silent on the matter.
She has now revealed what her boyfriend looks like, sharing a few pictures from their date night.

However, Ileana refrained from revealing her boyfriend’s name.
In June 2023, Ileana D’Cruz shared a glimpse of her boyfriend, posting a blurry black-and-white picture.
The picture appeared to show the couple about to kiss and the only distinguishable feature was the man’s beard.
Paying tribute to him, Ileana posted a lengthy statement.
It read: “Being pregnant is such a beautiful beautiful blessing… I didn’t think I’d be fortunate enough to ever experience this so I consider myself so incredibly lucky to be on this journey.
“I can’t even begin to describe how lovely it is to feel a life growing inside of you.
“Most days I’m just overwhelmed staring down at my bump going wow – I get to meet you soon – and then there’s some days that are so inexplicably hard. So trying.
“They’re overwhelming. All consuming. And things just feel hopeless.
“And there’s tears. Then follows the guilt. And this voice in my head puts me down. I should be thankful, not be crying over something so trivial.
“I should be stronger. “What kind of mother will I be if I’m not strong enough…
“And I don’t know what kind of mother I will be. I really don’t. All I do know is that I love this little human so darned much already I could explode. And for now – I think that’s enough.
“And on the days I forget be kind to myself, this lovely man has been my rock.”
“He’s held me when he feels me starting to crack. And wipes the tears away. And cracks goofy jokes to make me smile.
“Or just offers a hug when he knows that’s exactly what I need in that moment. And everything doesn’t seem so hard anymore.”
