In the picture, Sonam is seen caressing her baby bump as she smiles for the camera in minimal makeup. The actress had come from London a few weeks back for her delivery.
Opening up about her decision to become a parent, Sonam told Vogue in an interview, “Priorities change and I think the child will be mine. The truth of the matter is, she didn’t choose to come into this world. You have decided to bring them here, so it is a very selfish decision.”
Anil Kapoor, on behalf of his entire family, shared a note to express his happiness on the arrival of the baby. The note read: “We are delighted to announce, on 20th August, the arrival of the newest member of our family, Sonam and Anand, has been blessed with a healthy baby boy and we couldn’t be more excited. Our hearts are filled with pride and love for the parents and their beautiful angel.” He addressed himself and wife Sunita Kapoor as “beloved grandparents”.
Sonam had earlier told Indianexpress.com how she struggled during the first three months of pregnancy. “This journey of motherhood has been very difficult, especially the first three months. They were tough in ways I didn’t expect. No one can tell how challenging this journey will be. Apart from nausea and tiredness my body is changing every day. It has also affected my sleep routine such that sometimes I have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, and then there are days when I cannot get out for 10-12 hours straight. Despite all these changes, I have never loved, embraced or cared more for my body and health,” she said.
