This week started on a celebratory note with Esha Deol's super cute baby announcement post on Instagram. Esha posted a picture of her one-year-old daughter, Radhya, with the text, 'I'm being promoted to "BIG SISTER"' and we couldn't help but feel ecstatic for her.
In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Esha shared, "Both of us (her and her businessman husband Bharat Takhtani) definitely wanted another baby as we grew up with siblings and wanted the same fun company for Radhya. The timing happened by the grace of God." Instagram flooded the post with best wishes and congratulations to the couple on their second pregnancy.
However, the best reaction came from Esha's parents and little Radhya's grandparents Hema Malini and Dharmendra. When asked how the two families reacted to the good news, Esha laughed and said, "All the four grandparents are excited, for them the more the merrier," and isn't that every nani-nanu ever?
When Esha and Bharat were expecting Radhya, the couple had flown to Greece for a babymoon and it was something. They had a beautiful maternity shoot in Santorini to mark the special occasion in their lives. When asked if they are planning another babymoon this time as well, Esha said, "I don't think I can call it a babymoon the second time around as I can't go anywhere without my baby. I will take Radhya with me everywhere I go, so let's just call it a family vacation for Bharat, Radhya and me whenever we plan to travel."
Talking about work, Esha has been actively involved in the dance ballet, Ramayan, produced by mom and world-renowned Bharatanatyam dancer Hema Malini, where she has recently taken over from her as Sita. "The ballet is still going on as planned. And I will resume my professional commitments after my second child is born, the way I did after Radhya entered our lives," was Esha's response when asked how is she planning to manage this part of her life.
Now, 'Just the 3 of us', as she captioned this picture is going to be a happy family of four (or more - if Hema and Dharmendra are to be believed). To quote Esha, "For now, I’m loving every bit of being a mother hen, inside out." The 37-year-old actress is due in October. We can't wait to meet the little munchkin.
