Ahead of becoming a father, in a recent interview, Ranbir Kapoor talked about his equation with kids and shared the one thing that he would like to encourage in his children.
On June 27, 2022, Alia had announced their pregnancy and had left the entire nation stunned. The actress had shared two pictures on her IG handle and had sent everyone into a meltdown. The first picture was from the hospital, where Alia and Ranbir could be seen adorably looking at a monitor as the actress had got her sonography done. The second one was a picture of a lion and lioness pampering their little cub. Alia had captioned the pictures as:
“Our baby ….. coming soon.”
In an interview with Mashable India, Ranbir Kapoor opened up about his equation with kids. When Ranbir was asked how good he is with kids, the actor shared how his cousins, Armaan Jain and Aadar Jain have always been fond of him when they were younger. Sharing that he believes that he is good with kids, the daddy-to-be said:
"I would like to believe I am. I don’t know if I am good or not, but when my two younger cousins brothers Armaan, Aadar, were born, while they were growing up, they were like my tail. Wherever I went, they followed me, and they really worshipped me. So I guess I was good to them."
Meanwhile, Ranbir Kapoor also shared how his niece, Samara is close to him as well. The actor mentioned that though she lives in Delhi and she is a little shy, but during her growing up years, they were quite close. He added that he is close with children and that he wants to be the cool uncle. Sharing that he wants the kids to call him RK instead of uncle, Ranbir said:
"I have a niece called Samara who’s 11 now, and she is a little shy, she also lives in Delhi, but during her growing up years, we were quite close. Now she’s in that awkward age where boys are a bit...But I would like to believe I am close to children. I am the cool uncle but I don’t like to be called uncle. I tell them 'Call me RK' because I don’t give an uncle tag...there's a little bit of distance so that people think I'm cool. RK has got a ring to it and also I don't want people to think I'm old. Just call me RK."
Ranbir also talked about his attachment to soccer and shared that he likes when young children are into sports. He also added that it is something that he would like to encourage in his children when he will become a dad. Talking about the same, he said:
"I always like when young children, boy or girl, when they do sports, it's something I would like to definitely encourage in my children when I have children, to play, especially soccer. Soccer is something I am very attached to. It is something which gave me identity at very early in my life. I was below average in everything, in studies, in grammatics everything but football gave me a.. I was decent, so you found some identity in it."
Further in the interview, when Ranbir Kapoor was asked if he had any tattoos, the actor shared that he didn’t have any at the moment. However, he added that he might ink Alia and his lucky number '8' or their children’s names in the future. In his words:
“I might get a number 8 tattooed or my going to be children’s name."
On the professional front, Ranbir will be seen in movies, Shamshera and Brahmashtra.
