Now, it’s all about my daugh­ter: Ku­nal Kemmu

Ku­nal Kemmu has been over the moon ever since he shared with the world the happy news of the ar­rival of his baby girl Inaaya Naumi Kemmu in Septem­ber. With the lit­tle baby now just over a month old, the proud fa­ther can’t stop gush­ing about her. “I don’t know whether life has changed or not, but pri­or­i­ties def­i­nitely have [changed]. This is the only re­la­tion­ship that hasn’t taken more than a sec­ond for me to com­pletely fall in love with,” says the ac­tor.

Ku­nal ex­cit­edly talks about how ev­ery­thing re­volves around Inaaya now, and how much he looks for­ward to go­ing home and look­ing at her. “I want to know ev­ery­thing that she has done, even though she’s only feed­ing and sleep­ing right now. Ear­lier, I would fin­ish a day of work, go back home, put my feet up and watch some­thing on TV or call friends over, but now, it’s all about her. She has be­come the cen­tre of at­ten­tion in my life,” says Ku­nal, adding, “Now, I’m look­ing for­ward to the time when she be­comes more active and re­spon­sive — right now, she can’t even hold her head up prop­erly. But, it’s such a happy and bliss­ful phase to be in.”

Ask Ku­nal how he feels about In­naya’s in­evitable en­try into the lime­light, and he says, “I haven’t planned that yet. I def­i­nitely feel that you can­not stop so many things from hap­pen­ing. If some­one takes a pic­ture, you are not go­ing to fight and say don’t put it out. That’s a process of its own. I just want to look af­ter my child in the best way I can and make sure that her health is not harmed. I don’t know if a flash light on a child’s face is a great thing, but I’m sure the me­dia would also act re­spon­si­bly.”

Asked if he would want to share her pic­tures on so­cial me­dia as many celebrity par­ents do these days, and Ku­nal says, “Well, you’d avoid it till you can and I don’t want to go and just spread ev­ery­thing out there. But it de­pends. If I see her do some­thing re­ally cute, I might want to share. Every par­ent knows what’s best for their child and ev­ery­body should do what they feel com­fort­able with.”
