Kumkum Bhagya's Shikha Singh On Her Pregnancy: ‘There is Anxiety Of Course Presently, But I'm Being Positive’- EXCLUSIVE
TV actress Shikha Singh is expecting her first child. Singh tied the knot with Karan Shah in May 2016. We spoke to her exclusively, this evening.

Excerpts from the conversation:

How did you manage to keep your pregnancy a secret until recently?
 I didn't plan to keep it a secret but I just wanted some phase of my pregnancy to pass on and then share the news with everyone. But, I didn't want to make it late either by surprising everyone a bit too much. So, I think this was the right time and obviously, my family and close friends knew about it already.

You must be flooded with lots of messages since the time you announced it?
I have been getting a lot of congratulatory messages but at the same time, people are also showing concern as they are worried about me, in view of the on-going tough time. BUt then, it's all because they care for us- and it makes you feel good.

Are you worried?
Well, there is anxiety, but it’s good to stay positive and hope that this ends soon. I think that every child comes with his/her destiny. I shall remain positive- because I believe that then, the universe has its own way to take care of you. 

So what's your routine these days?
I get up in the morning, cook food and then do some exercise, chill with my family and my dog. That's about it.

What kind of special treatment are you receiving from the people around you?
I feel lucky that I have plenty of well-wishers around me. I have been given a book by a friend and I am reading that. Then, there are some others who keep sending me food so that I don't have to cook. 

Do you have pregnancy cravings?
So far, I have had zero cravings. Touchwood! I am just eating plain daal, sabzi roti, milk and some fruits. So, I think my husband has got lucky or else he would've had to run a lot. 

Any preference- son or daughter?
If the baby is healthy, the gender doesn't matter for me and my husband. I know girls have their own charm and boys also have their own adorability. But we are waiting for a healthy one. We are just praying that life should get normal before the baby’s arrival so that we can enjoy our parenthood right from the word 'Go'.

Zeroed down on any names?
Nope, because we don't  know whether it’ll be a girl or a boy. Also, Karan's family believes in astrology; so after my delivery, the raashi and all will be seen post which on the basis of the first letter proposed, we will finalise the name.
