When a couple is all set to welcome their second baby, it gets important that their first child doesn’t feel neglected. It is important to make your first baby understand and feel responsible about the baby-to-be-born. Geeta Basra, who is seven months pregnant, is ensuring that her daughter, Hinaya Heer gets all the attention during her second pregnancy. In an interview, Geeta shared how her second pregnancy is not about her but about Hinaya.
Geeta Basra and her husband, Harbhajan Singh are soon going to be parents for the second time. To announce their pregnancy on March 14, 2021, Geeta Basra had posted pictures with Harbhajan Singh and their little one, Hinaya on her social media handle, in which the family of three had twinned in denim. Harbhajan had opted for a blue denim shirt with black denim and Geeta had flaunted her baby bump in a denim dress. Hinaya had looked adorable in a blue denim dress, just like her mommy. Geeta had captioned her post as "Coming soon… July 2021" followed by a heart emoticon.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Geeta Basra shared that while her first pregnancy was all about her, her second pregnancy is all about ensuring that her daughter, Hinaya doesn’t feel neglected. She shared, “This pregnancy has been very different like I said. This pregnancy has not been about me. The first pregnancy was all about me, focusing on myself and this one about focusing on Hinaya now because have to see that she still gets the focus and attention. The only thing I am anxious about is that she doesn’t get affected. You have got to make that extra effort and more added effort is on to them. My whole day is taken with playing with her. The first time it was all about me and this time I have to look after Hinaya as well as myself. I have to know what are her needs as well as my emotional, mental and physical needs. This time I have to balance a lot.”
As the second wave of COVID-19 has hit the country hard, when asked if her second pregnancy is difficult considering the situation, Geeta shared her experience. She said, “Yeah, of course, I mean you can’t go anywhere, can’t do anything, you cant take your kids out anywhere. It’s obviously not easy because my daughter is also a very outgoing child. She has been travelling since the age of three months. She is a very outdoor girl, so for her to be stuck indoors right now, especially when you are pregnant you have to be extra careful and keep yourself well guarded. I can’t take her anywhere, it is unfortunate because I feel it for them. This pregnancy has been different because my focus is on my first child.”
Earlier in a conversation with Zoom TV Digital, Geeta Basra had revealed that she is having no cravings in her second pregnancy. Sharing diet tips for the expecting mothers, Geeta had also revealed the difference between her two pregnancies. She had said, "Any tip will help them. Everyone has their own experience. In COVID you have to have a nutritious diet. Do not overeat. Your calcium and everything baby is taking. Make sure protein is higher and carbs are lesser. My dietician has given me the plan. I have been very vocal about my pregnancy. I want to share this experience. In my first pregnancy, I did not know what to expect and what I was going through. I did not know what is coming and how will I deal with it. I did not know what to do and what not to do. When you are having a second child, you know what to expect."
Geeta Basra is a super mom, who has been acing her mommy role even during her second pregnancy!
