Welcoming a premature baby into your life can be a daunting experience, but it brings you closer to your child like nothing else. Mahhi Vij and Jay Bhanushali’s daughter, Tara Jay Bhanushali was a premature child and had to spend one month in NICU, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. On the occasion of Father’s Day, Mahhi shared a video of Jay taking care of their daughter, Tara in NICU.
Though Jay Bhanushali and Mahhi Vij had become foster parents to their caretaker’s kids, Khushi and Rajveer in 2017, the two had welcomed their first baby together on August 3, 2019. Jay had announced Tara’s birth by giving a glimpse of her two tiny feet. He had written, “The future just arrived, a brand new baby here to play. Ten little fingers ten little toes, mommy's eyes and daddy's nose... Thank you princess for choosing us as your parents ITS A GIRL @mahhivij.”
As Tara was in NICU for one month, Jay Bhanushali had ensured that his baby girl is pampered even then. Mahhi Vij took to her IG handle and shared a video of Jay taking care of their daughter, Tara in the NICU. Jay can be seen cuddling Tara and rubbing her back. She captioned it as “Tara s favourite song. Happy Father’s Day @ijaybhanushali… I use to always ask him who he loves the most n today I have the answer TARA.”
Mahhi then added how Jay took care of their daughter in NICU and used to visit the hospital after shoot just to say good night to Tara. She added, “The days u spent in Nicu taking care of her from massaging to feeding to meeting the doctor everyday. I still remember the day you were shooting how u came back straight to the hospital just to say goodnight to your little angel. #happyfathersday Tara has a loving father stay blessed.”
It was on April 6, 2020, when Jay Bhanushali had heard his little girl, Tara call him ‘papa’ for the first time. Tara’s IG handle is managed by her parents and on the same, they had posted a video, wherein, the baby girl could be heard saying, ‘papa.’ The video was captioned as "I can say papa now @ijaybhanushali".
In September 2020, Mahhi Vij had shared a picture with her premature daughter, Tara and the hospital staff and had narrated her story of one month stay at the hospital. She had written, “Motherhood can be scary especially in my case with a premie. However I know I was in the BEST hands as the team at Breach Candy Hospital took very good care of Tara.”
Mahhi had thanked the hospital staff for taking care of her and her daughter, Tara for one month and had added, “And yes I can’t forget their support towards me as well because there would be times when I would be scared. Their warmth never made us feel like we were in the hospital for an entire month! When I look back, I realize the journey is all the more special and memorable due to this team. Thank you! #Throwback #TarasBirth @ijaybhanushali.”
Jay Bhanushali and Mahhi Vij had tied the knot in 2011 and had become parents after 8 years!
