Model Alanna Panday, cousin of Bollywood actress Ananya Panday and daughter of health coach Deanne Panday, recently talked about her live-in relationship with Ivor McCray V. In a video posted on her YouTube channel, Alanna talked about how her family reacted to her decision to move in with Ivor.
“They were so happy. I remember telling my mom first that we are getting a house and she was absolutely ecstatic. Besides me moving in with him, this was also my first house that I got on my own, I was paying my own rent, and it was just a big step in my life, besides moving in with my boyfriend. Just having my own place,” she said.
On being asked if she had to convince her parents about her live-in relationship, Alanna said, “I already answered this. Parents are super open-minded about everything. Not just about living with Ivor, I think my parents are super open-minded in general. So, there was no convincing. I just called them one day and said, ‘Hey guys, this is the guy. I love him. We are staying together.’”
Alanna moved in with Ivor in June 2020. “Eight months in the house but unofficially, we have been living together since January, so over a year,” she said.
Alanna also revealed that she has met Ivor’s entire family. “He actually has a huge family. We had to travel to several different places because half of them live in Washington, half live in Arizona,” she said, adding, “I met his parents multiple times, his sister, the full family. We did an entire trip with them, so I have spent a lot of quality time with his parents.”
