On June 28, the 'Slumdog Millionaire' actress took to Instagram to reveal her baby bump. Cory Tran, her fiance, also shared a set of photos with her. Pinto captioned the images, "Baby Tran, coming this Fall."

Pinto, who is best known for roles in films such as 'Immortals' and 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes', announced her engagement to photographer Tran with an emotional and touching message on his birthday in November 2020.

Previously, Pinto was linked to actor Dev Patel, who was her co-star in Danny Boyle's Oscar-winning film 'Slumdog Millionaire'. The couple called it quits in December 2014 after a six-year relationship.
