On being asked how did she manage to keep her pregnancy a secret until now, she said, "I didn't plan to keep it a secret but I just wanted some phase of my pregnancy to pass on and then share the news with everyone. But, I didn't want to make it late either by surprising everyone a bit too much. So, I think this was the right time and obviously, my family and close friends knew about it already." She also expressed her concerns and worries which is natural for a new mother. In her words, "Well, there is anxiety, but it’s good to stay positive and hope that this ends soon. I think that every child comes with his/her destiny. I shall remain positive- because I believe that then, the universe has its own way to take care of you."
On the question of what routine does she follow on a daily basis keeping in mind her and the baby's health, she retorted, "I get up in the morning, cook food and then do some exercise, chill with my family and my dog. That's about it." She also revealed that people around her are taking extra care of her and said, "I feel lucky that I have plenty of well-wishers around me. I have been given a book by a friend and I am reading that. Then, there are some others who keep sending me food so that I don't have to cook." On being asked what are her weird pregnancy cravings, she said, "So far, I have had zero cravings. Touchwood! I am just eating plain daal, sabzi roti, milk and some fruits. So, I think my husband has got lucky or else he would've had to run a lot." (You May Also Like: Ekta Kaul Reveals Habits Of Hubby, Sumeet That Reminds Her Of 'Mikesh' From 'Permanent Roommates')
When asked what would she prefer, a boy or a girl, she cordially replied, "If the baby is healthy, the gender doesn't matter for me and my husband. I know girls have their own charm and boys also have their own adorability. But we are waiting for a healthy one. We are just praying that life should get normal before the baby’s arrival so that we can enjoy our parenthood right from the word 'Go'." Lastly, when asked if they've thought of names for the baby yet, she said, "Nope, because we don't know whether it’ll be a girl or a boy. Also, Karan's family believes in astrology; so after my delivery, the raashi and all will be seen post which on the basis of the first letter proposed, we will finalise the name."
