Sameera Reddy who tied the knot with businessman Akshai Varde in January 2014 is all set to become a mother. Confirming this, the radiant mother-to-be says, “Yes,we are expecting our first baby and we are very very happy.” Since it’s her first child Sameera is cautious in her activities. “I’m being careful and keeping a low-profile,” says the actress who is extremely close to her sister Meghna’s child. “Our child is expected in early May. God has been very kind. I am blessed.” Sameera and Akshai fell in love because of their mutual passion for motorbikes. Recalls Sameera, “Akshai has his own range of mo’bikes.That’s how we met. Akshai saw me whizzing past on this really mean macho machine. I think he was impressed by my love for mo’bikes. Our relationship started there. We knew each other for years before our marriage. Akshai is well-known in his own field but not part of showbiz. I think that was very important for me. I wanted to marry outside the film industry.
