Mehr, as the name suggests, truly came as a blessing for TV actors, Karan Patel and Ankita Bhargava. After a miscarriage, Ankita's second pregnancy and Mehr's birth made her a rainbow child for her parents. The couple was blessed with their little princess on December 14, 2019, and since then, their life is filled with sheer happiness. They have been teaching their daughter everything under the sun and have been giving her the best parvarish. From inculcating the habit of reading in Mehr from the very beginning to now revealing that their daughter already has to parent her special friend to understand responsibilities, Ankita and Karan are setting parenting goals really high.
Before we talk about Mehr’s special friend, let us tell you that it is not her Naughty bhaiya. Ankita Bhargava and Karan Patel were already parents to their pooch, Naughty, and for Mehr, he is like her big brother. The doting mommy has ensured that her daughter grows up in the company of her bade bhaiya, Naughty. Once Ankita had shared a cute picture of her daughter with her pooch. In the picture, we could see her fur baby putting his head on little Mehr, but it was their baby girl's charm bracelet with a cute paw and little feet detailing that made it extra special. Along with it, Ankita had written, "My heart knew that this would happen one day."
Coming back to how Ankita and Karan had made their daughter, Mehr meet a special friend in her life, taking to her IG handle, the mommy revealed about her daughter’s friend. Ankita shared a picture of her daughter, taking care of her friend, who has fins and gills. Yes, Ankita and Karan had gotten Mehr a fish to be her friend, when she was 11 months old so that she can have a sense of responsibility. Sharing the picture, she wrote, “For Mehrz 11th ‘Monthiversary’ We had gotten her a Fish as a pet! And named her ZUZU! We researched a bit and got her a ‘Flowerhorn Fish’ These fish are known to be highly interactive and notorious too. And they actually show happiness and excitement! We wanted Mehr to make a connect and learn lil about responsibility right from the start!”
Ankita further shared that she believes more the responsibilities, the better it is for the child as now her daughter has both, Naughty and Zuzu to take care of. She also added how Mehr has been taking care of her pet fish and bonding with her. She added, “I know you would say that Wasnt Naughty enough to teach that?!? The more the merrier U see! So she wakes up and the first thing we do is spend time with ZUZU! And Zuzu jumps up and down in excitement knowing that Mehr is gonna give her some breakfast now. Sometimes These two have a lil chat, Sometimes Mehr copies Zuzu and jumps up and down, Sometimes Mehr kisses Zuzu through the tank, Sometimes Mehr wants to eat Zuzu’s food It is a beautiful relationship... and I feel it makes a good start of our day! P.S - These fish are loners and territorial but love human beings!”
Ankita has been motivating new mommies and pregnant ladies with her pregnancy and motherhood experiences on her social media handle. A few days back, she had hosted an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on her IG handle. In the session, she had asked her followers to share the ideas about which they want her to talk. While some users had shared some ideas, others had asked her some questions. Amongst them, one had asked her “Talk about Naughty and karan relation.” To which, Ankita had shared how Karan balances parenting between their daughter, Mehr and pooch, Naughty. She had shared, “Well, If Karan buys something for Mehr then He also gets something for Naughty too! And gifts Naughty his gift 1st!”
Ankita and Karan are totally nailing their parenthood journey as every other day, they teach millions out there, the right way to nurture their child, imbibing every emotion in them since the beginning!
