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.”
