“Rajeev and I were planning this for quite some time but you know these things never happen according to your planning. When we had given up, we got a surprise. I learnt this in my 4th week. I had this feeling that I should do a test and when I did the first test it came out to be negative but the second report came out positive. I was so used to doing tests by then that I was prepared that it was going to be negative, but suddenly I got this surprise. This is a new chapter in Rajeev and my life. I am in my first trimester. The baby is due in November,” she said.
Charu also shared about the moment when she discovered that she was pregnant, “I was shivering when I saw those two pink lines. For sometime I was completely clueless what to do and I was sitting inside for 15-20 minutes in the bathroom. Then I went out and informed Rajeev and even he was clueless and had mixed feelings. And it was quite late at night when we discovered it, so we were confused if we should inform the family at night or in the morning. But ultimately we couldn’t control and informed the family on video calls. Everyone was shocked, surprised, excited, happy, I wish I could have recorded the reactions,” she shared.
Charu also opened up about her sister-in-law Sushmita and the family’s reaction, “Sushmita didi is so excited. She keeps sending me voice notes and the messages she sends are amazing to hear. She is very happy and is just waiting for the baby. Everybody is so excited, so happy in the family. Be it Rajeev, my mother-in-law, Sushmita didi or my side of the family. It is going to be after a long time that there will be a new baby in the family. So everyone is very happy. I have been getting so many congratulatory messages from everyone ever since I’ve announced the pregnancy,” said the actress.
The Mere Angne Mein actress is currently at her mother’s place in Bikaner, “I have come to Bikaner because my mother-in-law doesn’t stay with us and there was no one to take care of me. Here at least I have my mom, sister, brother and sister-in-law, everyone is around to take care of me. Also, the situation in Mumbai was not that great. Rajeev is in Mumbai right now. We have our pets there so somebody has to be there to look after them. I am going through so many changes in my body. I am experiencing changes emotionally, mentally, physically and everyday I am witnessing something new,” said Charu.
Charu shared in the interview, the most special and magical moment which she experienced in the fourth week of her pregnancy, “The moment I got goosebumps was when I did my first sonography in 6th week. I still get goosebumps when I recall hearing my baby’s heartbeat for the first time. Oh my god, it was magical, unbelievable. That’s the first time I realised that I have another human inside me. It’s a very different feeling and can’t be described in words,” she told ETimes TV.
