Talking about soaking in the joyous feeling of becoming a grandparent for the fourth time, Hema ji said, "It's such a joyous moment. Dharam ji is very excited. When we fell in love and married, Dharam ji and I never expected that our family would expand so much. Darien resembles both Ahana and Vaibhav, Adrea and Astraia have shades of resemblance to Darien." Hema ji also revealed that not only Dharmendra, but Ahana's in-laws (Vipin and Pushpa Vohra) also have seen the newborns in the pictures only. She said, "Vaibhav's parents had tested positive for COVID, they are fine now. But they are naturally not taking any chances of any travel for some time. Plus they stay in Delhi where the COVID numbers are very high."
Earlier, in an interview with the SpotboyE, Hema ji had shared how she and her husband, Dharam ji had always prayed to be grandparents, and now they are blessed with five grandchildren. She was quoted as saying, “To have babies in our family after so long is such a blessing. After my daughters, Esha and Ahana were born there was a very long gap when there were no babies around us. When Esha and Ahana grew up, got married and moved out, both, my husband Dharamji and I prayed to be grandparents.” Hema ji had also revealed that her daughter, Ahana and her husband, Vaibhav had always wanted to have twins. Sharing how it is a full house now for the parents, Hema ji had said, “Ahana and her husband Vaibhav wanted to have twins. They had even decided the names for their twin daughters Astraia and Adea. Ahana already has a son who is like cutest. I call him little Krishna. Now there are two little girls, So it’s a full house.” (Don't Miss: Amit Sadh Reveals The Truth Behind His Dating Rumours With Kim Sharma, Makes A Statement)
