Sharad Malhotra had become an overnight sensation with his performance in the shows Banoo Main Teri Dulhan and Kasam Tere Pyaar Ki. It was on April 20, 2019, when Sharad had ended his bachelorhood life and had tied the marital knot with a Delhi-based fashion designer, Ripci Bhatia. For the longest time, Sharad Malhotra has been answering questions around parenthood and this time, he shared that he and his wife, Ripci will soon start a family.
On January 11, 2021, Sharad Malhotra's wife, Ripci Bhatia had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared glimpses of their date night. She had changed their ordinary balcony into a romantic dinner night set-up and had delighted their fans with pictures of a cutesy puppy.
In a conversation with ETimes, Sharad Malhotra opened up about his family planning and shared that as of now, he and his wife, Ripci are very busy. He also mentioned that the couple can think of having a baby and starting a family in a few months. He said:
“Both Ripci and I are very busy as of now. We both will wait for some time before we take the plunge. We both love kids though. We have a four-legged baby at home as of now. Maybe in the coming few months, we might give it a thought. Parenthood is a beautiful phase in life which I would like to experience. My nephew and niece had visited us sometime back and they were like a bundle of energy. I am literally like a kid on sets, way too inquisitive about everything and a prankster.”
Earlier, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Sharad Malhotra was asked about his and Ripci's plans to start a family together and enter into parenthood. He had said:
"We are still discovering and enjoying each other's company. As cliché as it may sound, that is the truth. When you have a 12-hour schedule, the plan is to have moments with your partner, but it doesn't happen as often as you would like. We try to have some getaways, drives, dinners and spend time with each other. We are not planning a family right now. Abhi time hai. Whenever it happens, it will."
In another interview with the Hindustan Times, Sharad Malhotra had revealed that he and his wife, Ripci Bhatia have welcomed a baby boy in their lives and how that new member has changed the whole dynamics of their home. He had said:
“We have a new member in the house, and he is delightful. White as snow, he is just 45 days old, so taking care of him is a 24x7 job.”
When inquired, Sharad Malhotra had revealed that their little baby is a four-legged cute golden retriever but had clearly stated that there’s no difference between taking care of a pup and a baby. He had said:
“Listening to our stories about him, people laugh when we tell them about our routine and tell us that maybe we are training for the real baby, a child, I mean. I realise that having a child is a massive responsibility- be it a four-legged or a two-legged baby. We can’t take it casually, and it is not easy.”
Well, we hope to hear the ‘good news’ soon from Sharad and Ripci!
