Sonam Kapoor On Delaying Her PREGNANCY Due To Covid 19: 'We Waited A Lot But This Pandemic Wasn’t Getting Over
New parents Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja have been enjoying the best phase of their life. They have finally embraced parenthood. The duo announced their pregnancy in March 2022 and was recently blessed with a baby boy. In an interview, Kapoor spoke about planning their first child and the difficulties she faced in the first trimester. She gave this interview reportedly two weeks before her due date.

In an interaction with Vogue India, Sonam Kapoor recalled her ‘tough first trimester and the measures she took for a healthy pregnancy at 37. The ‘Neerja’ actress also revealed that she and Anand Ahuja had planned a baby in 2020, however, due to Covid-19, their plan got delayed. She was quoted saying, “Honestly, (when) I got married (2018), we wanted to wait for two years and then the (Covid-19) pandemic happened. Then I heard lots of stories from my friends, who went through a very difficult time during the pandemic, going to hospitals, having their parents with them. In India we are used to a support system of our moms, our in-laws and all of that. You want your mother around. You want your partner around and to come to the hospital, all these things.”

Sonam added, “So, Anand and I decided… We were planning for 2020. Then we were in Delhi at the beginning of the pandemic at his parents’ house and at that point we just decide to wait, because we did not know what Covid-19 was at that point. We did not understand and we thought, let’s just wait.”

The ‘Veere Di Wedding’ actress also revealed that last year on her birthday she told Anand that they could not wait anymore. And in Christmas last year she found out about her pregnancy. She recalled,“So, we waited and waited and waited; and this pandemic didn’t seem to be going anywhere. Then I remember in June (2021), it was my birthday and I told my husband, ‘I think it is time, I don’t think we can wait anymore’. I had done all my check-ups with a couple of doctors, in India and in London, and they said you are fine. You have something called AMH that women have, so that is fine, everything is fine, so just try… We went ahead, and by December we were pregnant, and then I had to start taking progesterone shots because of my age.”

Sonam and Anand were blessed with the baby boy on August 20, 2022, and announced the arrival of their first child on social media.
