"I was like, ‘It’s just five carats'."
Bollywood actress and proud mother, Shilpa Shetty has revealed that she is willing to give her 20-carat diamond to her future daughter-in-law but only if one condition is met.
The actress is known to be extremely fond of her impressive jewel collection. However, it appears she is ready to part with her most prized possession for her son Viaan Raj Kundra’s wife.
In a recent interview, Shilpa Shetty explained what condition will have to be met before she can consider giving up her 20-carat diamond. She said:
“I always tell my son if your wife is good to me she might get my 20-carat diamond, otherwise, she will have to make do with some smaller ones.”
Shilpa Shetty is a proud mother to two children, Viaan and Samisha, who she shares with her husband Raj Kundra. The couple welcomed their daughter via IVF earlier this year.
The doting mother revealed that her children are her priority in a Vogue interview. She said:
“If you see my Instagram handle, I define myself as a mum first because that’s always my priority.”
In a viral video, Shilpa Shetty disclosed how Raj proposed to her with a 5-carat diamond ring much to her dismay.
Taking to Instagram, she said:
“Major throwback .. this picture from 11 yrs ago when you proposed to me .. still remember you booking out the whole banqueting hall at Le Grand Hotel Paris .. telling me it was just early supper at a friends.
“And you surprised me with a ‘ring’ under the cloche and went on one knee with live musicians playing #ladyinred when I entered, the setting, Paris ..Ufff!!
“That proposal was straight out of my (every girls) dream .. You continue to manifest all my dreams into reality since then.”
The actress further added:
“It was a five-carat diamond ring and I might sound really materialistic but I was like, ‘It’s just five carats.’ I took a while to say yes because I was like, ‘This is not what I imagined.’
“No, no, I am just joking. Because I took two seconds more, he was like, ‘The wedding ring will be bigger.’ So I said yes there and then.
“He knew that I have always wanted to go to the Eiffel Tower. I have shot in Paris, I have shot beneath the Eiffel Tower, but I had decided that I would go up only with the man I end up with.”
