Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia D'souza are one of the cutest couples in Bollywood. Their Insta PDA is adorable and they give us couple goals every time they post a picture on social media or make a public appearance together.
Riteish's ladylove Genelia turned 32 today and he wrote the sweetest message for her. The Masti actor took to Twitter to share three monochrome pictures of Genelia and wrote, "Life is bliss-when your best friend becomes your life partner. Happy Birthday my darling Baiko
@geneliad You are the strongest mother I know, you are the adhesive that holds our family together. For all the good deeds in this life may god bless you with the same husband in ur next"

Isn't that beautiful?
The lovely couple tied the knot in a traditional Marathi ceremony in February 2012 after dating each other for nine years. Their first son Riaan was born in November 2014 and their second bundle of joy Rahyl came into the world on June 1st, 2016.
In case you're wondering how they met, let us take you down the memory lane.
Riteish and Genelia met at the Hyderabad airport in the year 2003 during the test shoot of their first movie Tujhe Meri Kasam. Genelia was all of 16 when she first met Riteish, who was 25-years-old at that time. He was the son of the then Chief Minister of Mumbai, late Vilasrao Deshmukh. Genelia assumed that since he came from an influential family, he would have an air about himself and so she just formally shook his hand and started looking the other way.
Then began the shoot for the movie and with all the time they spent together, they realised that they were so wrong about each other. Genelia noticed that Riteish was actually a humble and decent guy and even Riteish fell in love with her. Time passed, the shooting went on and they became good friends. Genny would talk to Riteish about her college and he would discuss architecture with her.
Genelia found it endearing that Riteish was extremely down-to-earth and respectful towards everybody, despite being the CM's son. Their friendship developed further and they became buddies on and off the sets. But as they say, all good things come to an end (before starting again). The film shoot got over, they returned to Mumbai and that's when they really started missing each other.
They never realised when they fell in love with each other. It was a gradual thing, and it just happened. Rest as they say is history!
