When a child is born, it also marks as the birth of a mother and a father! And regardless of how you choose to celebrate every milestone in the little one’s life, the biggest and most important of them all is his/her’s first birthday. And one star parent, who is celebrating one year of being mommy and daddy with their little angel’s completion of one year in this world, is Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi. 2018 had brought about a whole lot of firsts in the lives of Neha and Angad, and two being a major one with which they had surprised their fans and followers.

Firstly, Angad Bedi and Neha Dhupia had given a pleasant surprise to their fans when all of a sudden, a pop up from their social media profiles stated that they are now husband and wife. While everyone was getting over with the digital hangover of #SonamKiShaadi, on May 10, 2018, Neha and Angad had posted a picture from their Anand Karaj ceremony and had announced that they have taken the plunge. While Neha had written, “Best decision of my life.. today, I married my best friend. Hello there, husband! @angadbedi”, Angad had captioned his post as “Best friend.. now Wife!!! Well hello there Mrs BEDI!!! @nehadhupia.”
A few months later, Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi had announced that they were soon going to be a ‘family of 3’ by posting pictures from her maternity photoshoot. Finally, on November 18, 2018, Neha and Angad became proud parents to a little girl, Mehr Dhupia Bedi and since then, they have been teasing their fans with partial glimpses of their angel. November 18, 2019, marks to be the completion of one year of existence of Mehr and the Bedi-Dhupia family headed off to Amritsar to take the blessings from God. While everyone was expecting Neha and Angad to delight their fans with the first clear picture of Mehr on her first birthday, they yet again treated us with a back-pose.
Neha Dhupia and Angad Bedi posted ethereal family moments of the awesome threesome, celebrating one year of Mehr Dhupia Bedi. Neha and Angad couldn’t stop adoring their angel in the pictures as the little one play with a foil balloon that has “Happy Birthday” and “1” written on it. While Neha wrote, “Happy 1st Birthday our little angel .... my heart is so full of love... I don’t know what I am capable of giving you but you gave me the best gift of my life, the gift of motherhood. May god bless you ... Guru ‘Mehr’ Karein”, Angad captioned his post, “Our baby girl turns #1. Happy birthday Mehr.. May you have the wisdom of your dada.. and grandparents over the years and the smile and warmth of your mum.. much love and prayers. Just be a kind girl always. Love your dad. Angad. @nehadhupia Waheguru mehr kare.” (Also Read: Kalki Koechlin Spills The Beans On Her 'Unexpected Pregnancy' And Her Marriage Plans)
In an interview with the Asian Age, Neha Dhupia spoke about the different roles that she and Angad Bedi play as parents to their now-one-year-old daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi. Neha remarked, “I am driving Mehr to her playdate, then Angad is busy changing diapers. Usually, we fix things as they come, but we work around our work schedules as well. We are in the same profession so there isn’t much conflict. I look at it as love. When Mehr, my mother and I have a group hug, that’s the most precious moment for me. This is the moment when my heart pops out for my mom, who took time to braid my hair, and more. She is responsible for making me the person I am today. But all of this had gone unnoticed until now.”
Being a newbie mommy isn’t easy and managing a newborn baby and work is even more difficult, but definitely not impossible. Speaking of taking out some ‘me’ time amidst the pressure of mommy duties, Neha stated, “It has been amazing to wake early in the morning while my husband and daughter are still fast asleep. I sit, thinking that this is the best thing that has happened to me. I don’t like to talk much about the good things that are happening to me right now, because I am a big believer in keeping things wrapped up. If things are going great, then hold on to them.”
During the International Breastfeeding Week 2019, Neha Dhupia had taken an initiative, #FreedomToFeed, wherein she had revealed her breastfeeding experiences with baby Mehr and her journey of motherhood. Discussing the pros and cons of the motherhood journey and how she is blessed to have a great support system with her, Neha had said a lot in her video on Instagram. She had captioned the video as “#freedomtofeed - an initiative by Neha Dhupia Let’s start a conversation... as mothers we need #freedomtofeed #internationalbreastfeedingweek @freedomtofeed #ItsNotAnAd.” (Also Read: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's Childhood Pictures Prove That Aaradhya Bachchan Is A Spitting Image Of Her)
