Dalljiet Kaur On Raising Son, Jaydon Alone Amid Ugly Spat With Nikhil Patel, 'I'm A Proud Father'

Popular actress, Dalljiet Kaur has been a single parent to her son, Jaydon, for many years now. Dalljiet, who was earlier married to Shalin Bhanot, gave love a second chance by tying the knot with Kenya-based businessman, Nikhil Patel. However, within a year of marital bliss, troubles crept into their paradise. Since she is back in India, she has been raising her son all by herself and is extremely proud of it.

Dalljiet Kaur talks about raising her son, Jaydon single-handedly

In a recent conversation with Times Now, Dalljiet Kaur opened up about raising her son, Jaydon single-handedly. When the actress was asked how she helps Jaydon in his day-to-day studies, she shared that she manages time in between her shots on her set to help him. Recalling how she managed to fulfill all the duties on her own, Dalljiet said:

"I manage time in between my shots on my set to help him with studies. Jaydon has practically grown up on my set and makeup room which was converted into a study and toy room. Time has always been the biggest challenge as a daily soap actress and a single parent. I am proud of the single parenting that I have given him. Whenever I had a break for two scenes, I would take that time to go for his vaccination or parent-teacher meeting. I would wipe out my makeup to look normal amongst other parents and then put it back to resume shoot."
