Kum Kum Bhagya fame Pooja Banerjee recently revealed that she is six months pregnant. Everyone including the fans are so happy for the actress. The diva recently opened up in a conversation with Pinkvilla, on her pregnancy for the first time.
Talking about becoming a mother, Pooja Banerjee reveals, “Sandeep and I are really excited and happy to announce our pregnancy. To be honest, we’ve wanted to start our family for a couple of years now, however, we never put a timeline on it. We always thought that whenever it has to happen, it will happen, and I guess we’re going to be parents at the most perfect time! We are in a very happy space and touch wood; I feel everything is falling in the right space. We are gearing up for the baby to come in and we’ve started reading up about pregnancy, babies and parenting as well. Both of us want to have a daughter, but we will be happy if it is a boy or a girl. I am sure he or she will be the most pampered child for sure.”
Recalling the initial days when she found out about her pregnancy, Pooja Banerjee added, “Kumkum Bhagya has been a blessing in disguise for me. I joined the show just after the first wave of COVID-19 and since then, it’s been a joy working on the show. One fine day, I felt that something was not right and hence, I went for a blood test. Around 4 pm, during the shoot, I got the report stating that I was pregnant. I immediately called Sandeep and asked him to come to pick me up. He felt that I was not well, but I just didn’t want to break the news over a phone call. When I finally revealed the news to him, he jumped up and started dancing. Since then, I’ve had a lot of support from him, our families as well as the Kumkum Bhagya team.”
She further mentioned, “Initially, due to the fatigue and morning sickness, it did get taxing. In fact, I even approached the makers with an option to release me if it was getting difficult for them. However, they told me that they wanted me on the show and have 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 now, what happens in the future needs to be figured out, but there is still time for it, and I will shoot for Kumkum Bhagya till the time I can.”
