Bigamist mum, 42, who had two husbands living just minutes apart facing jail
A bigamist mum who married her lover and had his child behind her husband’s back is facing prison.
Brinda Kantamanen, 42, lived a double life by hiding her relationship and pregnancy with Matthew Hall from her husband Ravi.
Their homes were just three minutes walking distance apart and she even entered an incorrect name on her child's birth certificate, a court heard.
She wed Ravi in 1999 in North Carolina, US, and enjoyed a traditional Indian ceremony later that year.
The couple moved to live in London where Ravi works as a director for an international consultancy firm.
But by 2017 cracks began to show in their marriage and he started suspecting his wife was being unfaithful as she was often away.
In December 2017 he made the devastating discovery she had married Mr Hall two months earlier at Ealing Town Hall, in west London – a short walk from the family home.
Their marriage was officially dissolved in 2019.

Kantamanen admitted one count of bigamy and appeared at Uxbridge Magistrates Court on Wednesday.
She was accompanied in court by Mr Hall.
Her case was sent to Isleworth Crown Court, where a judge could jail her.
The maximum sentence for bigamy is seven years behind bars.
Magistrate Nigel Shock warned her: "Our sentencing powers wouldn't be sufficient so it would need to be sent to the crown court.
"This is going to go to the crown court for sentencing on a date to be fixed.”
Kantamanen, of Guildford, Surrey, who runs her own computing consultancy firm, was released on unconditional bail.
