If you are a student or you’re working, nobody likes the ‘infamous’ Monday. Even though we have a happy and chill weekend, as soon as it is Sunday afternoon, the thought that the weekend is almost over makes us want to cry. We can hate it. We can love it (LOL. Who are we kidding. Nobody loves Monday). But we definitely can’t ignore it. Do you know who else is having blues on a Monday morning just like us? Chak De! India star, Vivan Bhathena’s newborn daughter, Nivaya Bhathena. (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty Kundra's 'Home Sweet Home' Is All About Hugs And Cuddles From Her Son Viaan Raj Kundra)
Known for his silver screen roles in Chak De! India, Talaash, Hate Story 4 and small screen soap operas like Kumkum, Vaidehi, Maayka amongst others, Vivan Bhathena has proved his mettle as an actor and is riding high professionally as well as personally. Vivan married the love of his life, Nikhila Palat and after 12 years of marital bliss, they became proud parents to a little angel. On June 9, 2019, Vivan and Nikhila embraced parenthood for the first time with the arrival of their daughter, Nivaya Bhathena.
A while back, Vivan Bhathena took to his Instagram handle and posted a video of his newborn angel, Nivaya Bhathena. Nivaya can be seen yawning and in deep sleep as her mother, Nikhila Palat tries to wake her up with a ‘good morning’. One glance at this little angel will make you feel like looking at the mirror and will remind you of everyone who suffers from Monday blues, including yourself. Vivan hashtagged the video with ‘Monday morning’.
A few days ago, Bipasha Basu and her husband, Karan Singh Grover gave this little angel a visit and were in awe of her. Karan had taken to his Instagram handle and sharing glimpses of some oh-so-adorable moments with Nivaya, he had written, “It was so awesome meeting this gorgeous little angel today. Nivaya is the name. @vivanbhathena_official and @nikhilapalat you guys did well!!”
Announcing his daughter’s arrival and sharing his daughter’s first picture on social media, in HBO's magnum opus, Game Of Thrones style, Vivan Bhathena had written, “Princess Nivaya Bhathena of the house Palat born during the storm, last of her name, the untanned, pooper of Dragons, breaker of toys and Khaleesi of Jhapas and future Queen of the Puppies and sister of the White Walker Muffin, keeper of papa/mama on the nights watch was born on the 9th of June. Please send us your blessings. #papa #daddysgirl #newlife #pinkcheeks #cutiepie Fyi: nivaya means "sanctuary" or "guardian".” (Also Read: Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor Enjoy Family Time With Kapoors In New York, Aishwarya-Abhishek Too Join In)
In an interview with The Times Of India post the arrival of his little angel, Nivaya Bathena, Vivan Bhathena opened up about why they kept his wife, Nikhila Palat’s pregnancy under the wraps. He had stated, "If I could have it my way, I would not have announced the birth of my child either. We made a conscious decision to not speak about it because we did not want unwanted attention and advice from people. Even when the pregnancy was confirmed, Nikhila continued telling people that she had put on weight. We are happy and blessed that both the mother and daughter are doing fine."
Speaking about his father duties, Vivan Bhathena continued, "I am busy handling the hospital duties, so the feeling (of becoming a father) is yet to sink in. I will soon be leaving for a film shoot to Hyderabad, so I am feeling miserable about leaving Nikhila on her own for a few days.” Further revealing that had it been a baby boy, he and his wife would have faced difficulty coming up with a name, Vivan added, “I had thought of a baby girl’s name but if it had been a boy, it would have been difficult because we could not think of anything."
In a throwback interview with India Forums, Vivan Bhathena had spoken reverently of his then-fiancee, Nikhila Palat and had reminisced an incident when he got the best compliment of his life from her parents. He had said, “The best compliments I have got is from my girlfriend, her parents actually. She had gone through a phase when she was unable to communicate with her parents. When I entered her life and we started dating, somehow because of me or because of how I am, she got back talking to her parents, and in fact, she got closer to them. So the best compliment was when her parents told me that because of you we have got our daughter back, she is much nicer of a person and she is communicating with us. I think if you can affect somebody’s life like that for the better, I think it’s a rare compliment.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan And Karisma Kapoor Twin In Black As They Party With Saif Ali Khan In Nawab Style)
