Tulsi Kumar is excited to embark on a new journey — motherhood. The singer is in the third trimester of pregnancy, and she and husband, Jaipur businessman Hitesh Ralhan, can hardly waait to become parents. The coouple tied the knot in Februaary 2015.
Taking exclusively to HT about her pregnancy, Tulsi says, “It’s an amazing feeling. I’m experiencing changes in my body and my mood. But the best feeling is that there is a life making its presence felt within you and this feeling sinks in slowly during the later months of pregnancy.”
Asked if she has shortlisted any names for the baby, Tulsi says, “Not thought of any names yet, but whether it’s a girl or a boy, I definitely want to name him/her after a pure religious word just like my father named me.”
And what about the preparations to welcome the bundle of joy? “I’ve shopped [for] all [the] necessary things for my baby, thanks to my mom. She guided me through the entiree list of essentials. ssentials My interior designer and I are also doing up a nursery in beautiful pastel shades.”
A lot of moms-to-be feel nervous about the new set of responsibilities that come with a baby. Tulsi says she’s more of the inquisitive type. “Since it’s my first [baby], I have a lot of questions in mind like every new mom to be. There are a lot of new experiences I’m going through in this phase. All sort of advice is pouring in from what to eat and what to avoid, to which position is correct to sleep and which is not — the list is long. I’m totally enjoying this phase,” says Tulsi, who is due to deliver in the beginning of next year.
