In an interview with the Pinkvilla, the to-be parents, Kishwer Merchantt and Suyyash Rai had expressed their feelings on embracing parenthood soon. While the mommy-to-be had said, "It's amazing, I just can't describe it in words. I mean, after all, it's my first baby! I am super nervous too as it's my first time and I don't really know what to do. But thankfully we have our family, friends who have kids to guide us better. So I am sure it will be sorted", the daddy-to-be had continued, "It's a beautiful feeling, I can't express in words. I mean I am super nervous and tensed too but moreover, it's a fabulous feeling."
Recalling when she came to know about her pregnancy and how it turned from a ‘big shocker’ to a ‘pleasant surprise’ for them, Kishwer Merchantt had said, "So we got to know about our pregnancy on the 17th of January and by then I was already two-months pregnant but I just didn't realize it all. It was when I started feeling tired and low that it struck me that probably pregnancy could be the reason behind my lethargy. I got Suyyash to get the home pregnancy testing kits and that's when we got to know that I was expecting. It came as a shocker for us initially as we weren't expecting it at all. We hadn't planned it. It was like a big shocker in the beginning but it gradually turned into a pleasant surprise." Suyyash Rai had affirmed saying that they are really looking forward to the new chapter of their lives, "It was a shocker for us first when we got to know about the baby but we now believe that it's a gift from God, it's his blessing. We really want to enjoy the new chapter of our life." (Also Read: Kishwer Merchant And Suyyash Rai Reveal Pregnancy Came As 'Shocker', Speaks On Becoming Mother At 40)
