A child brings immense happiness and responsibilities in any parent's lives! Their priorities change, their sleeping pattern changes and basically, everything in their life changes. From buying nappies to story books to cerelac, there comes a gradual change in every parent’s life and they happily accept it for that one smile from their child. The heart is flustered with happiness and that happiness is what makes any parent go to any length for their baby. Geeta Phogat too is enjoying this new phase of her life ever since she had embraced parenthood.

Like every other business, the sports events are also on a halt due to the pandemic and this had given ample time to our favourite celebrities to spend with their families. Geeta Phogat is also enjoying her time with her husband, Pawan Kumar Saroha and son, Arjun Saroha and often shares glimpses of the same on her IG handle. The lady that made us proud, took to her IG stories to share an adorable moment between father and son. She shared a video, in which, Pawan can be seen lying on the bed, while his son, Arjun tries to climb over him to get a bite of amrood. We can also hear Geeta lovingly calling her son’s name. Take a look at the video below:
Post delivering a child, every mommy wants to seize every single moment they spend with her little one. With their kid being their priority, everything takes a backseat, and they wait for the right time to resume their work. Geeta Phogat is no different as the athlete took her time before starting to workout to get back to her fit shape. Posting a then-and-now collage with her May 2019 and May 2020 pictures, Geeta had written, “I just can't wait to get myself back into shape because I love fitness. I want to be more, fit and stronger #Back2fitness get moving, stay on track and meet your goal” as her caption.

In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Geeta Phogat had revealed that she had resumed her workout regime when her son, Arjun had turned four-month-old, but had to pause it. She had said, “Pregnancy ke baad I have gained 25 kg weight. Main ek athlete hun aur mai fit body mein confident mehsoos karti hun. Is body main aisa nahi hai ki mujhe achha nahi lag raha, lekin main chahti hun ki main apni fitness barkarar rakhoon... So recently, when Arjun turned four and a half month, I resumed my workout. Usi time maine dekha ki Arjun ache se feed nahi le paa raha tha. Toh humare physiotherapist ne salah di ki abhi heavy exercises mat karo jab tak bachha breastfeed le raha hai. That’s why I had to pause my exercise regimen because right now my kid is very small and uski health meri health se zyaada important hai!” (Recommended Read: Riddhima Kapoor Sahni Shares Her Late Father, Rishi Kapoor's Cutest Photo Ever From His Childhood)
