Actress Freida Pinto has announced the arrival of her first child with her husband Cory Tran! The Intrusion star chose a special day to announce the news: Cory’s birthday. “Happy Birthday Dada Cory!” Freida wrote in her post. “I celebrate you my husband, friend, and partner in life.”
The post featured two images: the first one with Cory holding the couple’s newborn on his chest and the second image with Freida holding her newborn close to her face. She opted to cover her little one’s face with an emoji. Freida continued her caption in celebration of her husband and his new role as a father. “To see you become not just a Dad but Super-Dad makes me so emotional and fills me with joy. It also gives this sleep-deprived Mama a break and you have no idea how much I appreciate that! I am so grateful and in love with how we do life together. Love you madly.”
The Slumdog Millionaire star ended her post with revealing information. It’s a boy and his name is Rumi–Ray! “Rumi-Ray you are one lucky boy!” she wrote. Cory shared the same images as Freida to announce the news. In his caption, he wrote, “Best birthday gift you could ever ask for. Thank you for our sweet boy. I’m in awe of you more and more every day. Watching you give birth to Rumi-Ray was truly a miracle, you are such a warrior.”
Cory may have actually hinted at his son’s name in his previous Instagram post shared a few days before revealing Rumi-Ray’s arrival. The photographer shared an image of himself hiking alongside a caption of a quote from Rumi, a Persian poet from the 13th century, that read, “Travel brings power and love back into your life.” Perhaps Rumi was part of the inspiration for Rumi-Ray’s name!
Freida and Cory were first romantically linked in October of 2017. Freida announced their engagement two years later in November of 2019, again on Cory’s birthday! Just last month after rumors of their marriage, the couple announced that they had in fact been married – one year prior. “Yes, yes, it’s true. One year ago I married this gorgeous man of my dreams,” the Hillbilly Elegy star wrote in a post confirming the news.
She went on to share it wasn’t their intention to keep their wedding a secret. “No, we were not keeping it a secret or anything. We were simply just enjoying life and happily shared the news with anyone who asked. @coryt and I believe so much in balancing spontaneity with just the right amount of planning. One day it felt so right and so genuinely aligned that we decided we wanted to make it official. This felt so special and fun and let’s be honest… it reflected the time in our world just perfectly! The Honda centre has a whole new meaning in our lives now.”
Congratulations to Freida and Cory on the arrival of their son! We wish them all the best as they embark on this new journey as parents to Rumi-Ray.
