Sonam Kapoor put an end to all the discussions around her pregnancy rumours and her family is equally excited to welcome the baby. However, more than anyone, actor Anil Kapoor is super ecstatic to become grandfather, and the actor can’t hold back his excitement.
Now, in a recent interaction, the 65-year-old actor talked about his eldest daughter’s first pregnancy and shared his first reaction to hearing the happy news. Anil Kapoor revealed that he was “very emotional about it and felt so happy”.
For the unversed, Sonam announced her pregnancy last month as she revealed that she is expecting her first child with her husband, businessman Anand Ahuja.
Anil had penned a note for the to-be-parents, and wrote, “Now preparing for the most exciting role of my life — GRANDFATHER!! Our lives will never be the same again and I couldn’t be more grateful! @sonamkapoor and @anandahuja you have made us happy beyond measure with this incredible news! (sic)”
When asked what kind of a mother he thinks Sonam would make, Anil, without any hesitation, called his daughter a perfectionist.
“Sonam is a perfectionist in whatever she does. And I’m sure she would be a perfect mother, too. The way she has been — I’ve been to her London house, Delhi house and now her Mumbai house is also getting ready and it’s absolutely beautiful and fabulous — she has taken the aesthetics from her mother and her grandmother and of course her maasi (Kaveeta Bhambhani Singh). So, all the women in the house had that [good taste]. And they all have been great mothers, great wives and homemakers, and I’m sure Sonam will also be just like that,” said the actor, as quoted by Hindustan Times.
The soon-to-be grandfather also added that not just on the personal front, even professionally, Sonam would shine as a working mother like other women in the family.
“All of them have always worked all the lives. My wife has always worked in America. Sonam’s maasi is one of the best interior decorators, and even my mother-in-law used to work a lot. Sonam also loves working and she a very passionate actress, a passionate wife and daughter, and would be a passionate mother, too. Whatever she does, she does it with a lot of heart. She’s all heart, everybody knows that. She’s very generous, very giving.”
On whether audiences can expect to see Sonam balancing mommy duties along with work, Anil says she is, in fact, looking forward to get back to work.
