The couple welcomed their baby boy on August 20.
Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja are ecstatic to have a baby boy. On the 20th of August, they finally brought home their long-awaited son. Once they announced the news on their social media accounts, the pair received many congratulations, well-wishes, and blessings from friends, followers, and fans. In a recent interview with Vogue, the Neerja actress discussed how her father, Anil Kapoor, reacted to the news of her pregnancy. Furthermore, she suggested he might have been reluctant to become a grandparent as he is not ready for the next stage of life.
According to daughter Sonam Kapoor, Anil Kapoor doesn’t see himself as a grandparent.
When questioned by Vogue, Sonam Kapoor responded that her parents took the news of her pregnancy well. She replied that her dad might not be ready for the next phase of life as a grandparent. When I told my parents I was pregnant, my dad broke down crying. I didn’t even think he wanted children. Now he is full of grandparent-pleasing ideas and one even features this word-of-mouth toddler group for him and his wife. This year we took him to Chandigarh, but now he never takes pictures unless there’s a baby on board. In all these years I thought he was a sex worker and alcoholic, so I know he’s very surprised to become a grandfather, as it’s out of character for him.
Sonam added that her father has always cared about their careers first and relationships second. To him, it was never about when they would date or marry. He always said that once you’re ready to settle down, you’re welcome to stay at home for the rest of your life, said Sonam.
