Angad Bedi Shares How His Daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi Decided The Nursery For Her Newborn Brother

In July 2021, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi had announced their second pregnancy, and on October 3, 2021, they had welcomed their second child. Well, Neha Dhupia gave birth to a baby boy, completing their family. Neha and Angad are blessed with a daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi and with the arrival of their son, “Mehr is ready to pass on the "baby" title to the new arrival.” In fact, Mehr had started understanding the responsibilities of an elder sister right from the start and had decided her baby brother’s nursery.

On September 20, 2021, Neha Dhupia had shared glimpses of how she and her daughter, Mehr had started preparing for the then-soon-to-be-born new member of their family. Neha had started making her second child’s nursery near the window in her house to give her baby a peaceful surrounding. In the video, Neha could be seen holding her daughter, Mehr in her arms as she had guided the team with the setup. Sharing a video, she had written, “Making our little nursery with @merkaihomes” atop it.

Now, in a conversation with Bombay Times, Angad Bedi shared that the couple had ensured that their daughter, Mehr’s choice is considered while planning for their second baby’s nursery. He said, “As parents, we are conscious of the fact that while paying attention to the newborn, we have to ensure that she’s equally attended to. We also want Mehr to learn and understand the dynamics of having a sibling. She already feels like the big sister.”

Stating that Mehr will be sharing her space with her sibling and decided on an animal-themed nursery for him, Angad added, “It’s a big responsibility to raise two kids without making either feel less important. And it’s best when kids grow up in each other’s company. Mehr will be sharing her space with her sibling, so keeping her likes in mind was just as important as making the newborn comfortable. She has always been fond of animals and hence, the theme. We don’t want her to feel that she’s not the apple of our eyes. She always will be that for our entire family.”

Neha Dhupia Second Pregnancy

Angad also shared that though Neha Dhupia is in the hospital with their newborn, she has been taking care of Mehr remotely. He said, “Neha was completely in control of Mehr’s schedule even in her third trimester. In fact, while she’s in the hospital, she has given me a detailed routine for Mehr for the next seven days, including studies, play dates, and so on. I’m home with my girl, and I’m following that. When we were expecting Mehr, we had made a nursery that was leaned towards the girl child, but this time, we have kept it neutral in shade, with softer colours and an animal theme.”


Angad Bedi also talked about how his newborn looks like his dadaji, Bishan Singh Bedi. He said, “I came to Mumbai to make a career, but this city gave me that and a loving family. It was my dad’s 75th birthday on September 25. There was a chance the baby could have been born on that day, but it didn’t happen. He has a jhalak of his dadaji. Each time I see him, I feel like I am looking at my dad’s miniature version — Little Bishan Singh Bedi!”

Talking about if they have decided any name for their little one, Angad said, “We haven’t decided on a name yet. I would have loved to name our son Bishan Singh Bedi Jr, but that name comes with such a tremendous amount of responsibility and pressure. I dealt with it when I wanted to be an actor and people expected me to be a cricketer. To fill my dad’s shoes is a big responsibility and I do hope that my son can carry his grandfather’s legacy forward. My dad is ecstatic to have a grandson. He played a big part in naming our daughter; hopefully, he can do that for our son, too. We want him to spend time with both the children because that joy is unparalleled.”
