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)?”
