I’ve attended a pre-natal class with Geeta: Bhajji
Cricketer Harbhajan Singh and wife, actor Geeta Basra, can’t wait for this month to end. You ask, why? “The baby (their first) is to arrive at the end of July or first week of August,” says Bhajji. And how’s the father-to-be dealing with it all? “Bas sab badhiya chal raha hai. I’m excited and hoping sab theek se ho jaye,” adds the 36-year-old, who got married to Geeta, 32, in October last year.
Harbhajan is preparing to be as hands-on as possible, and has even attended a few pre-natal classes for couples with Geeta, in London. “I’ve always been a responsible man when it comes to family... And with the baby, that would only grow. I’ve attended a class where they tell you what to expect, and help you prepare for your role as parents,” he says, adding that the baby will be born in England. “Geeta is British and she is comfortable being with her parents at this time. That’s why, we’ve planned the delivery there.”
Meanwhile, the shopping has begun. “We’ve bought some stuff. Agar kuch dikhta hai worth buying, we buy it, like strollers, etc. Geeta also wanted the first baby-suit to be the best. She wanted designer and all, so I said, ‘Le le yar, le le’.” As for all the jokes about living with a pregnant woman, Bhajji says, “Pregnant or otherwise, it’s not easy to stay with a woman (jokes). I try to be understanding, and make her comfortable. Do gaali aur khalo jahan itni khayi hain. Kya jaata hai (laughs)?”
