Netflix’s ‘Dubai Bling‘ is an interesting reality TV series that delves into the lives of a group of affluent friends living in the land of opportunities, Dubai. While it chronicles their daily activities and work affairs, the drama that brews between the friends also makes for an exciting watch. Apart from their social events and lavish parties, the show gives us a peek into their homes and family life, especially their equations with their better halves.
Among the couples in the group are Safa and Fahad Siddiqui, who had quite a rocky start in the show and gradually went through many tense situations regarding family planning, career, and conflict in the circle that spilled into their relationship. Although the husband-wife duo received much love from viewers for their loving equation, did their commitment to one another stand the test of time? Well, here’s what we found out!
Fahad and Safa Siddiqui: Journey Together
Born and raised in London, Safa is an Iraqi by ethnicity and has lived in Dubai for eight years. She worked in real estate and shared that she had been engaged a few times before meeting Fahad Siddiqui, a businessman from a conservative yet influential family in India. The couple fell in love and tied the knot in October 2019, welcoming their daughter, Alina, into the world in 2020. Since then, Safa has become a hands-on mom and, in her own words, “a retired housewife.”
While their friends felt that Safa and Fahad had a very functional and well-coordinated marriage, the former divulged that they were poles apart. Despite their immense love, the couple got into several conflicts during their time on the show. It all started with Safa demanding a bigger wardrobe space and house, which irked Fahad as he did not wish to let go of their current residence. Eventually, this led to a serious argument between the two, as the latter wanted to have a second child, whereas his wife was entirely opposed to it.
Per Safa, she had a difficult pregnancy with Alina and was still recovering from the trauma she faced; unfortunately, she was unable to make Fahad see the same. Besides, a significant plot point of the show’s inaugural iteration was the dilemma she faced about expanding the family, as she did not like seeing Fahad disheartened. Thus, Safa decided to follow a middle path and opted for surrogacy, but her sudden announcement about the same did not sit well with him or their friends.
Fahad felt somewhat ambushed by his wife’s surprise decision and wished to be more involved in such plans. Nevertheless, the couple reached a consensus when Safa explained her situation to him and requested to wait a few years before they considered having a second baby. Not just that, Fahad assured his full support for her career dream when she stated her plan to launch a fashion line. In addition, he agreed to look for other properties as potential new homes, and peace was restored between the two.
Interestingly, when Safa sided with Zeina Khoury in her tiff with Ebraheem and Danya, the group got divided, and Fahad felt hesitant to take sides. Regardless, he constantly defended his spouse, simultaneously maintaining cordial equations with the rest of their friends, gaining a lot of respect from them and the viewers. However, another issue cropped up between Fahad and Safa when he refused to give the deposit for a property she liked, making her feel that he always had his way.
In the season 1 finale, Safa revealed that she was pregnant, bringing many of the couple’s discussions to the rest. The next season saw her embracing the role of mother once more, and Safa was excited to share how she had learned many Indian traditions and practices to take care of a newborn. Indeed, it seemed like Fahad was growing more and more attached to the idea of having his kids become connected with their Indian heritage.
In fact, Fahad took a trip to India to check up on his mother’s estate after over eight years since her passing. However, Safa, who is a self-proclaimed “helicopter wife,’ grew worried when she saw her husband at unusual locations using various tracking apps. Hence, she decided to surprise him in a way that completely blindsided Fahad, even upsetting him a bit. However, it did pave the path for him to bring up the topic of the family possibly splitting their time between Dubai and India, something that Safa stated that she was willing to try.
Fahad and Safa Siddiqui Have Been Married for Five Years
We are happy to report that Fahad and Safa Siddiqui are still together and going strong. They reside in their original residence in Palm Jumeirah and are focused on building a space for their growing family. Their oldest daughter, Alina Siddiqui, was born in 2020, while their younger daughter, Ayana Siddiqui, came into this world in November 2022. More recently, in November 2023, Fahad and Safa celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary and seemed more in love than ever.
“This year’s resolution was to make him fall in love with me all over again. I think I just achieved it, and the year is not even over yet,” Safa wrote in a post dedicated to her wedding anniversary with her husband. Prior to that, Fahad had also re-proposed to Safa in August 2023 during the family’s trip to Bali, Indonesia. Needless to say, the couple remains very much in love and is always happy to spend time with their adorable daughters.
