Parenthood- the very word is enough to bring about bouts of happiness in newbie parents or all set to be newbie parents’ life! After a baby arrives in a couple’s life, their life takes a 360-degree turn! Tattered jeans which used to lie about on the sofas and floors are now replaced by stranded soft toys. Wine bottles are now replaced by baby feeding bottles and the entire house smells of disinfectants and Dettol! Relatable, right? Well, this is exactly what Mahhi Vij and Jay Bhanushali’s house will look like from now on! (Do Read: Shahid Kapoor Proves That His Son, Zain Kapoor Is A Mirror Image Of Him In His Latest Post)

Mahhi Vij too had posted the same picture, but with a different message.

Do you know, Jay Bhanushali had always wanted a baby girl? While hosting for the singing reality show, Superstar Singer, he had shared, "No relationship in the world can match the sanity of a father-daughter relationship and I wish that when my wife gives birth to a baby, she is a baby girl. I have no preference as such and it is not that I won't like if a baby boy is born but I admire this bond and since I have had a father-son connect with my father, now when I have a child, I want a daughter so that I can experience this too."
It was only a while back when soon-to-be-mommy, Mahhi Vij had taken to Instagram and had shared an adorable picture of herself, looking lovingly at hubby, Jay Bhanushali, along with a message for the life that she was then nurturing inside her. She had shared, “The feeling of holding you inside me is special! But I realize how excited everyone around me is and I realize how special it is to be a woman! I can nurture, I can bring a life into this world and as much as it makes me nervous, it also makes me realize how blessed I am.#baby #love #firstlove #miracle #blessed.” (Also Read: Karan Johar Reveals He Has Never Been In A Serious Relationship, Shares Who Loves Him In Purest Way)
