Kasautii Zindagii Kay’s Nibedita Basu and Kumkum Bhagya’s Rhea is all set to start a new chapter of her life. Well, we are talking about the TV actress, Pooja Banerjee, who recently announced the good news of expecting her first child with her national-level swimmer-husband, Sandeep Sejwal. Pooja is on cloud nine as she is experiencing her first pregnancy and now, she shared a picture flaunting her baby bump.
It was in a conversation with ETimes, when Pooja Banerjee had announced the news of her pregnancy. She had also revealed that she had plans to conceive in 2020, but due to an accident and COVID-19, she had to change her plans. Nonetheless, the actress is now enjoying the most fulfilling phase of her life.
A while back, on her IG handle, Pooja Banerjee shared a picture with her husband, Sandeep Sejwal to inform her social media followers about her pregnancy. In the picture, Pooja can be seen wearing a floral monokini and caressing her baby bump, while her husband, Sandeep can be seen holding her baby bump and looking at her with love. She captioned the picture as:
“MY FAMILY ThREE #Blessed #NEWbeginnings #BlueMermaid #SandeepSejwal #PoojaBanerjee.”
In an interview with ETimes, Pooja Banerjee had announced the good news and had talked about her pregnancy plans, mentioning how she had wanted to conceive in 2020. Sharing the details, Pooja had said:
“Sandeep and I wanted to conceive in 2020, but we put the plan on hold after I met with an accident in 2019 (on Nach Baliye). However, when the second lockdown was implemented, I realised ki yeh toh chalta hi rahega. We decided not to delay it because we didn’t want to become parents at a later stage. But we thought of having a baby next year since I was shooting for the show away from home for almost two months due to restrictions imposed in Maharashtra and travelling.”
Pooja Banerjee had also revealed that she had learnt about her pregnancy on the set of one of her TV shows. Sharing her husband, Sandeep Sejwal's reaction to the news of her pregnancy, Pooja had added:
“I felt that something was not right. So, one day before leaving for the shoot, I went for a blood test. Around 4 pm, I got the report stating that I was pregnant. I asked Sandeep to pick me up that day, as I didn’t want to break the news over a phone call. He did a happy dance when he learnt about it (laughs!). Both of us want to have a daughter. I want to dress her and make her wear nice swimming costumes.”
Pooja was also asked if she would take a break from work and take care of herself and the baby. The mommy-to-be had mentioned that she would like to go with the flow. Pooja had also revealed that the makers of Kumkum Bhagya are very considerate and make her comfortable while she is on the set. Pointing out the same, Pooja had said:
“I will go with the flow. Initially, I had some difficulty because of fatigue and morning sickness. What happens in the future needs to be figured out, but there is still time for it. The unit has been considerate and working around my requirements and comfort. I wish everybody would do that. Working women, who wish to go the family way, should be encouraged to do it.”
For the unversed, Pooja Banerjee and Sandeep Sejwal had tied the knot on February 28, 2017.
