Ac­tor Deepika Singh and her hus­band, di­rec­tor Ro­hit Raj Goyal, wel­comed their son So­hum in May this year. The ac­tor, who is on ma­ter­nity leave, says she doesn’t re­gret stay­ing at home to take care of her child. “When he [So­hum] smiles, [the] world be­comes beau­ti­ful and ev­ery stress goes away. And when he cries, I just get des­per­ate to calm him down and make him happy. I’m in love with him and I’ve never had this feel­ing even for Ro­hit... that some­one is in my mind 24 hours,” says Deepika, who rose to fame af­ter play­ing the role of Sand­hya in the show Diya Aur Baati Hum. The six-month-old baby ac­com­pa­nies his mother ev­ery­where, ever dur­ing her ex­er­cise ses­sion. “I’ve started work­ing out at home be­cause have to get back in shape. He stays with me and en­joys my work out when I hold him and do lit­tle ex­er­cises. That is the big­gest joy for me, be­ing able to spend time with him and giv­ing him the kind of at­ten­tion he needs right now,” says the ac­tor. Deepika is thank­ful to the entertainment in­dus­try for let­ting her take time off. “I have friends who work in a cor­po­rate set-up and have to join back their jobs af­ter three months of ma­ter­nity leave. I’m thank­ful to the in­dus­try which I’m a part of, which al­lows me to join back when­ever I feel like,” she says. The ac­tor is not look­ing at scripts or plan­ning her re­turn to show­biz any­time soon. “I’m only fo­cus­ing on this time that I’m spend­ing with my son. I do go out and have done shoots as well .In such a case, my mother in law is re­ally sup­port­ive and help­ful,” says the ac­tor.
