While we agree that moms are the magical solution to our every problem, we cannot deny the fact that fathers are the epitome of strength. Fathers are these amazing beings, who sacrifice the joy of seeing their children grow up in order to give them a secured future. They are the unsung heroes without a cape who are never given the due credits as we all are too busy loving our mommies!

However, Bollywood actor Angad Bedi, is making sure to trespass his tough demeanour and be the guiding step for his five-month-old daughter, Mehr Dhupia Bedi. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Angad had talked about the time when he had first held his angel in his arms, and had shared, “The first time I held her was when she came out of her mother's womb. I cut the chord and for me, it was a surreal moment. You know till the time it doesn't happen you don't understand.”
The new daddy of the Tinseltown never fails to give us daddy goals. On April 18, 2019, Angad’s wife and Bollywood actress, Neha Dhupia took to her Instagram handle to share daughter, Mehr’s favourite place on earth. Guess what? It is none other than her daddy’s shoulder. In the silhouette picture, we can see baby Mehr resting on Angad’s shoulder. Neha captioned it as, “Her favourite place .. daddy’s shoulders #babygirl #5months”. Take a look at the picture below:
Angad and Neha got married in a hush-hush Sikh ceremony on May 10, 2018. While we were drooling over their love story, they gave us another sweet surprise by announcing their pregnancy. In an interview with Pinkvilla, Angad had opened up about his daughter’s arrival, and had revealed, “I feel that Mehr Dhupia Bedi is my biggest achievement and I take full pride in being called her father. She has got the DNA of both me and Neha and I believe she is going to be a hardworking individual. She already has a strong mindset of her own, She has got strong likes and dislikes. We have got two nurses to take care. She has a fondness for one and complete disliking for the another. She is growing up and she is already 4.5 kgs. She is pulling height really fast. Neha is 5.9 and I am 6.1, we will definitely have a tall Mehr. My everything reloves around her and she has brought me a lot of luck.” (Also Read: Ranbir Kapoor And Alia Bhatt To Move-In Together?

In the same interview, Angad had shared how he wants his daughter to be a good person, and had said, “I just want Mehr to be a good human being who values everything in life and understand the fact of making money through hard work. This is what my parents taught me and I hope they are here for long enough to inculcate the same in Mehr. Hard work and perseverance are the two things as parents we want her to imbibe in herself. I would like to put her in many sports-based activities."
He had further added, "Neha asked me one day, 'What do you want Mehr to do' and I said, 'I would want her to win a Gold medal for the country in Olympics'. It's the age of women and we have examples like that of PV Sindhu, Sania, and Saina. We would like to encourage her to stay close to nature and away from Ipad or phones. I would want her to learn from grandparents. My dad has many anecdotes to share from the world of cricket and Neha's father is from the Navy. She will have a mix of both the worlds.” (Don't Miss: Malaika Arora And Arjun Kapoor Go Through Pre-Marital Health Check-Up Just Before Rumoured Wedding?)
