She was quoted as saying to Vogue India, “There are so many similarities in the way we are as people and the way we approach life. So I do think that will work for us. I’ve been thinking about it before I even became a parent. Conditioning is the most important role in how we see the world. I come from a progressive background, so that will always be a part of our home.” She added, “Love is the underlying factor in our home, and what’s important to us is that our child be respectful of people.

The covid-19 lockdown came with a silver lining for the couple. “The pandemic has been a weird blessing in a way. Virat was around and I could keep it a secret. We only left to go to the doctor’s clinic. No one was on the streets so we couldn’t be spotted”, she said.

Before the arrival of her first child, she has set up a nursery for the baby at home. Talking about the same, she said, “I’ve always meditated. It’s a daily practice, and my life has been quite balanced, so I’ve carried that forward. The only difference is that I’ve had a lot more time. I don’t believe that boys have to wear blue and girls pink. The nursery has all colours.”


She opened about the pregnancy experience and said, “You are more connected to your body, to all that is happening. It’s mind-boggling when I see the changes. It’s amazing. When you are expecting, you connect with people you never thought you would. Honestly, all the women in my life, not only my close friends, have been so kind, so helpful in reaching out… For all those questions, you have to have that circle. I think it’s really underrated, that ‘sisterhood. That’s the beauty of becoming a parent. It’s a less selfish existence and I’m really excited. I know it’s not going to be easy all the time, but you have to do what you have to do.”


Anushka Sharma will be delivering her baby in January 2021.
