‘Our Unconditional Love Rises Everywhere’, Deanne Panday on Alanna Panday’s Engagement

Bollywood is clearly fascinated by love and brings the wedding season all the way in. Several celebrities seem to be in the mood to tie the knot, and the latest that has gone at least halfway down that road is Chikki Panday and Deanne Pandaydaughter, Alanna Panday. The model and the internet sensation surprised us with very romantic engagement photos with the boyfriend Ivor McCray first from a beautiful beach in the Maldives and then from an Indian ceremony with close family and friends before heading to Los Angeles.

After the beach engagement, Alanna and Ivor had an official Indian-style engagement ceremony attended by only a select few family members and friends. While mother Deanne and brother Ahaan Panday was obviously present, Bollywood stars like Lara Dutta and Bipasha Basu also made sure to personally pour out their blessings on the upcoming bridal couple. Alanna looked beautiful wearing an embroidered gray ensemble with a beautiful necklace, while Ivor charmed everyone in a white sherwani.

See some exclusive photos from the ceremony:

Daughter’s engagement or marriage is a big day for any parent, and when Deanne was asked about her feelings, she shared an emotional message to her daughter.

She wrote:

How quickly my sweet little girl has become a strong and intelligent woman. It feels like I just yesterday sang you to sleep with lullabies and rode your beautiful hair. Of course we have had our little tiffs, but the moments of tears have only brought us closer, not just as a mother and her daughter, but as two women. You know that I always want the best for you, and that I always act out of love, no matter how painful it may be sometimes. I want to tell you that I am so proud of the person you have become and so excited to see the life you will continue to live with balance and determination. While some things may be uncertain now, I know deep down that you are destined to achieve everything, big and small, that you set your incredible mind after. I can not wait to be there for you every step of the way and show you my love in the midst of life’s challenges and festivities as you continue to grow into the ingenious soul you are.

When Deanne talked about her bond with Alanna exclusively with MissMalini, Deanne said:

The bond between mother and daughter is eternal. Our bond continues in thick and thin. We are biologically connected through it all, but the real connection is spiritual and made of love. The flow of energy between mother and daughter is among the most powerful in nature. We are there for each other, and at the end of the day, our unconditional love rises above everything.

After the little engagement, Deanne shared a few more photos of the bride, saying she already missed her when she was on her way back to LA according to plan.

Here are her posts:

This must actually be a very emotional time for Deanne, as it would be for any mother whose daughter is newly engaged. We send best wishes to Alanna, Ivor and Panday as well as the McCray families. May God bless them!
