Television actress, Pooja Banerjee had taken a sabbatical from her show, Kumkum Bhagya. The actress will be delivering her first baby next month, and she has finally decided to take a maternity break. Though her fans are delighted for her to become a mommy, they are definitely going to miss seeing her in the show. However, Pooja has turned her motherhood mode on and preparing to welcome her baby into the world.
On February 21, 2022, Pooja had taken to her Instagram handle and had posted a couple of IG stories. In the first photo, Pooja had posed with her entire cast and crew. Atop it, she had revealed that she is going to miss them. Atop it, she had written:
"Thank you team Kumkum Bhagya. Until we meet next."
Now, in an interview with ETimes, Pooja Banerjee talked about her plans now that she has taken a break from acting for some time. She shared that even though she wanted to work till the day she goes into labour, now she is diving deep into the motherhood zone. Sharing that she's getting prepared for her unborn child, Pooja added:
“I think even I was fascinated by all the things which are shown on television and movies about pregnancy. Those cravings to those mood swings - but nothing happened with me. I have now started to research which are the best diapers and how to go about things. I also cleaned a lot of baby stuff with my mother-in-law. There are times when baby gets a rash so how to deal with it, so there are so many things I have to learn and understand. I need to be prepared for everything.”
The actress shared that she is all set to welcome her baby next month and added that she wants to have a normal delivery like her mother. Talking about the same, she said:
“Next month I am all set to deliver. My hospital visits are done and my hospital bag is also ready. I have always imagined by birthing process to be calm and composed just like my mother. She went to the hospital all by herself and had me. So I think I will also know when it will happen.”
Further in the interview, Pooja talked about what she is looking forward to the most and revealed that she would love to see her husband as a father. She shared:
“He has never seen me like this. For him, it is fascinating that so many things are happening. But now when I will see him as a father that would be the exciting part for me. He won’t be a planned dad because that is my part and Sandeep’s mom also knows that,”
When asked about the kind of mother she would become, the mommy-to-be shared that she has mixed emotions about the same. Pooja said:
“There are days when I am super confident about it and there are days when I think how will I manage. But as people say it is a unique experience.”
In December 2021, Pooja had posted pictures of her mehendi, which she had got for her godh bharai ceremony. In the photos, we could see Pooja's mehendi-clad hands, and the unique design of a cute baby and a woman flaunting her baby bump had won our hearts. Along with it, Pooja had written:
"And so it begins. SEJWAL Junior Arriving Soon."
On the work front, Pooja is currently seen in the television show, Kumkum Bhagya.
