After eight years of marriage, Barun Sobti-wife Pashmeen welcomes first child

After eight years of marriage, actor Barun Sobti and his wife Pashmeen welcomed their first child, a baby girl on June 28th.

"Yes, the news is right. She was born last Friday (June 28). We have named her Sifat. It feels amazing and can't be described in words," Barun confirmed the new to TOI.

"It was not a plan to hide anything. We told everyone when one is supposed to when pregnant. The baby shower was lovely and it was great to see how much people love you," he told Hindustan Times in an interview.

"I am exhausted as I have been shooting and running around and taking care of my wife. But I am happy. Right now, we are both taking one day at a time instead of thinking too much about what will happen when the baby comes and other such kind of questions," added Barun.

When asked about parenthood, Barun said, "I have not thought about what kind of a parent I would be but I think both of us are prepared in our own way. Moreover, I feel nothing can really prepare you for parenthood as you learn along the way when your baby comes and how you bring your child up. We are ready for the surprises that will come along the way (laughs). I am a realistic person so I think I will be a realistic kind of father to my child. Who knows how you handle the situation that you come across after you become a parent. Being a parent is a huge responsibility."

The mommy-to-be had an intimate baby shower ceremony. TV actress Sai Deodhar ,who is also a close friend of the couple shared a glimpse of the baby shower ceremony.

Along with Sai, Karan Wahi, Akshay Dogra, Mohit Sehgal, Gautam Hegde, Sanaya Irani, Abhaas Mehta, Dalljiet Kaur were also present at the ceremony.

Sharing a picture of the parents-to-be, Sai wrote# “Congratulations love you barun and pashmeen!!! #barunsobti”. The mommy-to-be looked stunning in a pink dress.

Avinash Tiwary shared a few pictures from Pashmeen baby shower ceremony. He captioned one of the pictures as, "Mere bahi...All the Happiness to you and Pashmeen." "May this glow star forever :)"

He also wrote, "@barunsobtisays Also Now that you are a 'Dad to be'... I request all the ladies queuing up for yoour attention to leave you along... P.S. i am Single."
