In an interview with Zoom Digital, the second-time-mommy, Geeta, revealed the reason behind naming their son, Jovan Veer Singh Plaha. Sharing details about the same, Geeta said, "I had selected the name when I was pregnant with Hinaya. At that time I had thought of having a boy. Bhajji (Harbhajan) had said what if it is a girl, atleast ladki ka name bhi soch le. I was like mujhe lagta hai ladka hi hoga. Phir ladki hui. This time we had a religious way of naming the child. I was ecstatic that we got the letter J and Jovan was selected. I do not know but this name was stuck with me since Hinaya was born."


Geeta further revealed her hubby, Harbhajan's reaction when he held his baby boy in his arms for the first time. Talking about his mixed emotions, Geeta stated, "With Harbhajan, he was extremely emotional, happy, excited and overwhelmed. Of course, he loves kids. For him, it was the most beautiful day ever. Of course, it was a beautiful moment. Any parent who is a parent again will feel it. It is a feeling you can't describe if you do not go it yourself."
