Blue Frosting Surprises: Alanna Panday and Ivor McCray Expecting a Baby Boy


In a picturesque setting, draped in white and surrounded by the tranquility of a lush garden, Instagram sensation Alanna Panday and her husband Ivor McCray unveiled the gender of their forthcoming bundle of joy. The couple, who just a month earlier had shared the delightful news of Alanna’s pregnancy, invited their dedicated followers to a piece of their happiness with an intimate gender reveal ceremony captured on video.

As the camera pans over to the expectant couple seated at a table adorned with a cake sheathed in flawless white frosting, the anticipation is palpable. The frosting, thick with cream, promises a revelation that is color-coded. With shared smiles and the lift of wine glasses, Alanna and Ivor proceed to slice into the cake, uncovering a streak of blue beneath the white—a clear, joyful declaration that a boy is on the way.

The touching moment resonated not only with the numerous fans but also struck a chord with family. Deanne Panday, Alanna’s mother, and renowned fitness expert, couldn’t help but express her sentiments in a heartfelt comment on the video. Despite her initial guess being off the mark, Deanne shared a cascade of emotions, revealing her tearful yet joyous response to the news of a grandson.

Alanna first hinted at her pregnancy milestone in February through her Instagram page, set against the backdrop of a nature-themed maternity shoot. Adorned in a floral dress, Alanna was the epitome of maternal grace as she cradled her baby bump beside Ivor, who complemented her with an understated white shirt and trousers ensemble.

In what was a convergence of traditional splendor and celebrity presence, Alanna and Ivor exchanged vows on March 16, 2023. Their nuptials, solemnized through Hindu rituals amidst the glitz of Mumbai, were a grand affair attended by an array of Bollywood luminaries.

Ivor, a U.S.-based photographer, and Alanna, a lifestyle influencer and niece to Bollywood actor Chunky Panday, solidified their long-standing relationship with this marriage. They share their lives across continents, from their residence in Los Angeles to their bonds in Mumbai, engaging a vast community of Instagram followers and YouTube viewers with frequent snippets from their daily escapades.

Their digital narrative is set to take a novel turn as Alanna prepares to feature in an upcoming Amazon Prime Video series titled ‘The Tribe’. This portrayal of a cohort of Indian influencers is described as unflinching and bold, and it reflects their pursuit to attain global recognition, all set against the glitzy backdrop of Los Angeles. Under the production aegis of Karan Johar, Apoorva Mehta, and Aneesha Baig, and with Omkar Potdar at the director’s helm, the show promises diversely captivating content with Alanna among other aspiring names such as Alaviaa Jaaferi, Srushti Porey, Alfia Jafry, Aryaana Gandhi, and Hardik Zaveri.

As the Panday-McCray duo eagerly await their arrival, their lives are both anchored and adrift on the thrilling currents of imminent parenthood and ascending professional journeys—a tapestry of personal and public spheres that they graciously unfold to the world.

Their journey is a testament to the new age of celebrity, where every milestone is shared and celebrated as a collective experience, a narrative entwined with the hopes and dreams of an ever-growing virtual family, connected not just by entertainment or aesthetics, but by the pure, universal thread of human experience.
