Vivek and Priyanka married in October, 2010. Actress Genelia D'Souza, a close friend of the Oberois, was among the first to congratulate the couple on Twitter: Congratulations @vivek_oberoi and priyanka, I'm sure its d most special day ever, can't wait 2see the lil 1.. Big hugg

Vivek Oberoi had been excited about his impending fatherhood. In an interview to Mid-Day, he said, "The day I got to know that my wife is expecting, I wanted to be part of the entire process. So whether be it accompanying my wife for routine check-ups and tests or shopping for clothes, diapers, etc, I was always there. I want to be involved in each and every stage."

Despite his hectic schedule, the actor states that he is all set to take on the new role of being a doting daddy. "All my producers know that as soon as Priyanka delivers I will go on leave. I will disappear from the film promotions. I am trying to finish my commitments before I leave."

The actor, who made his Bollywood debut in Ram Gopal Verma's Company, will next be seen in Kumar Taurani's Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story, releasing on February 15 and Zilla Ghaziabad which is set to hit the screens on February 22.

With so much on the cards and now this good news, February has certainly been one lucky month for the actor.
