Indian cricketer, Harbhajan Singh and actress, Geeta Basra are in the happiest phase of their lives as they are expecting their second child. The soon-to-be mommy, Geeta is regular with her workouts and has been sharing glimpses of the same on her social media handle. From stepping out in her breezy outfits to posting pictures of her yoga postures, Geeta is documenting every detail of her pregnancy diary. In a recent interview, the soon-to-be-second-time mommy revealed why she discontinued acting after marrying Harbhajan Singh.
Harbhajan Singh and Geeta Basra had begun their forever journey on October 29, 2015, in a big fat Punjabi wedding after a long courtship period. The who’s who of cricket, business, political and glamour world had attended their lavish wedding reception. On July 27, 2016, Harbhajan and Geeta had embraced parenthood for the first time and had welcomed their baby girl, Hinaya. And since then, their lives have been revolving around their little angel, Hinaya.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Geeta revealed the reason behind discontinuing acting post her marriage. Talking about the same she shared, “I have grown up with a working mum, who has raised her family so well... Whatever we have today is because of her. I take that as my inspiration. I don't think women should give up on any of their passions.”
She also stated that discontinuing acting was her personal choice as she wanted to spend every moment with her little girl, Hinaya. Geeta revealed that enjoying every moment of motherhood was her priority and said, “Being a mother is the most rewarding and fulfilling role I've ever had in my life. I've loved every moment being with Hinaya. It was a personal choice that I didn't want to work... I was enjoying motherhood so much, and enjoying her milestones, and making sure that I'm there for every single moment of hers -- her first walk, her first laugh, her first word.”
On March 14, 2021, Harbhajan and Geeta had given a sweet surprise to all their fans by announcing their second pregnancy. Geeta had taken to her IG handle and had shared three pictures with her hubby, Harbhajan and daughter, Hinaya. In the first picture, the family was seen donning blue-coloured ensembles and Hinaya was seen holding a black t-shirt with 'Soon to be big sister' written on it. In another picture, we had spotted Hinaya hugging the baby bump of her mommy. Alongside the pictures, Geeta had written, "Coming soon. July 2021."
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Geeta had talked about her second pregnancy and had revealed how it is different from her first pregnancy. In her words, “It’s very different and this pregnancy has been very difficult. Hinaya’s was a smoother ride in terms of eating but this time, it is difficult to eat and I am not craving anything. I was really looking forward to indulging in some good food but maybe in the next couple of months, things change.”
Here's wishing a happy and healthy pregnancy to Geeta!
