One of the most-loved actors on the small screen, Karanvir Bohra rose to fame after his negative role as Viraj Dobriyal in Dil Se Di Dua... Saubhagyavati Bhava. Sometime back, he embraced parenthood for the first time, and became a father to twin baby girls, after almost 10 years of his marriage.
Karanvir tied the knot with his lady-love Teejay Sidhu, in 2006 and after enjoying a blissful married life, the couple welcomed their twin girls, Bella and Vienna in October 2016.
Karanvir is elated to become a father to the two munchkins who are currently the cutest babies of the small screen. Talking about his evolution as a person after their birth, Karanvir said:
"The only evolution that has happened in me is that I have become more responsible. Responsibility comes when children come into your life."
Karanvir also shared that men have evolved now as fathers, for the better, as they now want to spend more time with their children. He said:
"The evolution I have seen from my father's time is that my father used to tell me, and even tells me right now, that he never put his babies to bed. My doctor also said that they were never around babies, but now the evolution is that the fathers have got involved a lot into their baby's life. So, it's easy for the mother also."
Talking about how difficult it is for newbie parents to handle their babies along with work and home, Karanvir said:
"Only when you stay with a child or a child stays with you, then you realise how difficult or easy they are. In our case, we are really blessed that we have these God's blessings. They are pretty easy going. They do have their bad days also when they are sick or upset, but most of the time they are easy."
He is thankful to his mother, mother-in-law and sister for being around all the time, to handle his 9-month-old twins. For Karanvir, parenthood is a very different experience. Talking about his little angels, he said:
"So, we are responsible and caring, but we are really blessed that these little angels are in our lives. Sometimes I and Teejay wonder what karma we have done that they've been sent to us. They are really God's blessing.”
So, he is being a hands-on-father for his darling daughters, but how is he handling babies and work together? Karanvir said:
"When the children were sleeping, I had to work. When I come back they wait for me with open arms and mouth wide open... So it's exciting. Fortunately, the show I am doing right now doesn't occupy too much of my time. I shoot three-to-four days in a week and rest of the time I spend with my babies."
He strongly believes that both mother and father should equally participate in bringing up their children. He thinks that men should also do their bit to support their wives in handling home and kids. He said:
"Men should not only help, but also take the front seat whenever it comes to helping their babies because I am not just only about a diaper dad. I make cereals, milk, I put them to bed, whenever they are playing I sit and look at them... It also takes away from the mother's busy schedule. I think every father should be involved.”
We must say that Bella and Vienna are the cutest kids we have come across on the small screen, they are stars already! May God always bless this lovely family of four – Karanvir, Teejay, Bella and Vienna, with all the happiness and love in this world!
