In a statement to a leading entertainment portal, Pooja shared her excitement, she said, “The baby and I are doing fine. We always wanted to have a baby girl so it’s like a cherry on cake for us. Pushkar is overjoyed at this moment.”

Expressing his feeling of becoming a father to an adorable infant, Pushkar too said, “It’s such an amazing feeling. It feels like life has completely changed. I am getting a lot of calls from everyone and we are extremely happy. Everyone used to tell us that it would be a boy for us but we always wanted to have a baby girl. We became so happy to hear the news about the arrival of our baby girl. She is fair and beautiful. A star is born! She looks like Pooja now and her eyes are like me. Pooja and I are fighting over it (chuckles).”

Pooja and Pushkar had fallen in love on the sets of Tu Mera Hero, which used to air on Star Plus and later they tied the knot, last year. Well, both wanted a girl child and they were blessed with one. They are in a happy space. Hearty congratulations to the couple.
