Dipika opens up about Ruhaan being in the NICU after his birth

At the end of the video, Dipika then talked about an emotional moment when she saw her son, Ruhaan, for the first time after his birth and the little one was in NICU. She explained how doctors had initially called Shoaib to the NICU. Then, when her husband went to her, he was seemingly lost in something. She said:

"One thing I realised was that Ruhaan was delivered in the morning at 6:30-32 am. Due to a c-section, I was under bedrest and when I slept, the doctor had called Shoaib to the NICU and when he came back he was frowning, I asked him what happened and he quickly changed the mood and kept admiring Ruhaan."

The next day, Dipika was taken to her then-newborn son. However, watching him in bandages and C-Pap, Dipika immediately broke down. However, Shoaib had then become her strength. Elaborating more on the same, she said:

"The next day when I went to the NICU and I saw Ruhaan with bandages on his eyes, C-Pap as the first few days he was under oxygen support. As parents, it is a very heartbreaking sight. Ruhaan was a little uncomfortable and Shoaib kept looking at me. He had gone through this emotion and he knew exactly how I would feel. When we came into the room, I looked at Shoaib, I broke down into tears. He consoled me."

"Despite all these emotional turmoils, Shoaib had been my strength, he handled the situation and even cheered me up. We made the vlog and shared the good news with you all. It was very important for me to heal and he made sure that I was happy and healing. Obviously, your heart and mind are still stuck with your baby in the NICU but you have to keep going, you have to heal for your baby. Only if you are well, the baby will get good vibes and he will come soon to you. I thank Shoaib for constantly being there, he would come from his hectic schedules, and he made sure that I was in a good mood all the time."
