Baby Medina made new dad Adnan Sami kick the butt
Love makes one do “great healthy things”, says singer Adnan Sami, and he is the living proof. For his father, he lost a whopping 167kg; for his wife Roya, he gave up alcohol; and for his baby daughter, he gave up smoking “one fine day”.
In a telephonic interview with us, Adnan, who is in Berlin, says, “My love for my daughter Medina (born this month) is so tremendous that even before she was born, in January this year, in anticipation of her arrival, I gave up smoking! I kicked the 20-year-old filthy habit for her. I used to smoke up to 40 cigarettes a day. But one fine day in January, I kicked the habit… for her,” says the smitten new dad.
The singer is very “excited” to have a daughter and has been on a shopping spree ever since Medina was born. “In the past three days, I have bought clothes and toys. I have become a shopaholic. My wife has told me to stop buying things now; she is fed up. But I’m not gonna stop,” he laughs.
Just like other fathers, Adnan is very possessive about his daughter. He says, “I’ve bought a T-shirt for her, which has this cute little message: ‘I am not allowed to date’. I was just feeling very possessive and protective about her, and it was a very cute T-shirt — I just couldn’t stop myself from buying it for her.”
