The year 2018 had a lot in store for one of the fashionista’s of B-town, Neha Dhupia and her dapper hubby, Angad Bedi. From getting married to the love of her life to introducing a new member in their lives, newbie hubby-wife-cum-parents, Neha and Angad are truly living the time of their lives! Don’t you feel the same? (Do Read: Sharmila Tagore Feels Proud Of The Way Granddaughter Sara Ali Khan Stood Up For Her Father In KWK)
Remember, how a few days back, Neha shared an adorable picture of a father-daughter moment. In the picture, you will see the doting daddy (Angad) fast asleep with his baby daughter Mehr, sleeping on her back on his tummy! A mere look at the picture and you go all ‘awww’ with an extra dollop of cuteness that the picture comes with. Here’s the image that Neha had shared:
Hardly 10 days into her post-pregnancy phase, Neha had resumed work. Sharing a mirror selfie of hers with flashlights switched on from her vanity and a hairstylist doing her hair, the Qayamat star is some sheer goals! Sharing an Instagram story of the same, this is what Neha wrote, “and we are back to work #shootlife baby steps”. Here’s the story:
Neha had worked until the last days of the pregnancy. She had even rocked the Lakme Fashion Week ramp with her hubby, Angad Bedi, flaunting her baby bump. Do you know which actress had done something similar? Bollywood’s one of the most stunning actresses, Kareena Kapoor Khan! The actress had walked the ramp for Sabyasachi Mukherjee during her pregnancy bump and this is what Kareena had shared about the same, “I have always maintained that I work till I die. Acting is my passion. My work is my passion and as long as I am working it makes me happy and that joy shows on face. I am going to continue working.” Kareena had also shared in another interview, “I feel quite glamorous. I’ve been dressing up, going out, shooting, being normal. Saif keeps telling me I’ve never looked as beautiful. And that’s all any wife needs to hear, isn’t it?”
Taking this as an inspiration, Neha Dhupia too, followed suit. At one of her first interviews post-pregnancy, Neha revealed it herself! About resuming work immediately after her pregnancy, Neha shared that she had taken a cue from Kareena Kapoor Khan while doing so. She also added that she herself hopes to inspire some women and follow what their heart says. While Neha definitely has taken inspiration from Kareena, but she doesn’t aim to set any trend as such in Bollywood. Speaking about the same, Neha had once shared, “It has never been my intention to set a trend or be a part of one. The intention is to get up and continue your life and do things like nothing ever happened.” (Must Read: Taimur Ali Khan Gets 'Exhausted From The Paparazzi' Personalised Gift On His Pre-Birthday Bash)
Being a newbie mommy isn’t easy and managing a newborn baby and work is even more difficult, but definitely not impossible. The star host shared that it is also because of her baby daughter, Mehr, that she wraps up her shoot quickly and rushes back home. Revealing an example of one such incident when Neha wanted to see her daughter badly, the No Filter Neha host stated that she started crying at the very thought of when she would meet Mehr next! Such mommy feels, we say!
About the many ‘firsts’ in her life this year, Neha had shared in an interview before the birth of her daughter, Mehr, “There are many firsts this year. We got married and now we are having a baby. It is a very enriching experience for me to be married to such a strong girl. I feel the credit should not be given to her. It should be given to her mother who has raised her and she talks about her very highly. Her father has been an officer and her mother is an extremely hardworking woman. All the good ingredients she has imbibed from them. I am proud of her. The confidence she has is very appealing. Not just to walk the ramp but to come out and speak about the situation is very positive.”
Also speaking about taking some time off before and post her pregnancy phase, Neha had then stated, “I respect women who are sitting at home and who are actually taking this time off. I respect that too. But I also stand for the fact that 'I want absolutely no time off'. If I can do six things otherwise, then it is a small little thing that I'm doing. If I am strong enough to do that then there is nothing that will pull me back.”
Do you know if Neha had wanted a boy and girl during her pregnancy and what does she want her daughter to do when she grows up? The Lust Stories star had shared even before the birth of Mehr, “I just want a healthy baby and Angad always says he wants gold medallists. We both had an undying wish of becoming athletes and sports people before joining the movies. Every time he’s asked what he wants, he says, both of us have this undying wish that our child goes and represent India in the Olympics and bring back gold.” Speaking about her preference, she had revealed, “We always say, we want a healthy happy baby. Girls are more fun to dress up and boys are more notorious – you can go and get them dirty. But if it’s going to be a mini Neha or mini Angad, we don’t know. Mini Neha, I think.” And God granted her wish in the form of Mehr! (Also Checkout! Arbaaz Khan's GF Giorgia And Ex Malaika Arora Ring In Salma Khan's Birthday, Khan Khandaan Joins In)
