Gul Panag shares adorable picture of son Nihal with hubby Rishi


Model turned actress Gul Panag revealed that she and her pilot husband Rishi Attari were blessed with a baby boy six months ago but chose to hide the good news of her pregnancy and baby’s birth till date deliberately. Gul opened the secret and introduced her baby boy, named Nihal. The little munchkin looks very cute.

The picture has Nihal cuddled in his mommy’s arms while doting father Rishi stands very close to them too holding his baby. The three of them were dressed in the uniform of pilot. It is a perfect family picture.

While talking to Mumbai Mirror the actress was asked about answered why she hid her pregnancy. She replied saying, “Rishi and I have always valued our privacy. Becoming parents is a special experience and we decided that we’d like to go through it without the distraction of public attention. Family and close friends knew about Nihal but we refrained from posting anything on the social media. He is almost six months old and it has been a roller coaster ride! I’m charmed by his gurgles and giggles even if it is a bit of a struggle with erratic sleep and feeding schedules. Life and goals are taking shape parallelly, with a little more coordination between Rishi and me to includeNihal”.

Gul also spoke about her baby boy’s name and said, “We had a list of names from everyone and everywhere. Nihal means joy, success and victory that comes with the blessings of God. Rishi and I believe that leading principled, good lives leads to true and lasting success so the name resonated with us.”

Talking about shedding extra kilos, Gul said, “Nihal was born prematurely so I didn’t put on too much weight. Even through the pregnancy, I took care to eat healthy and have always been very active, so it was easy to get back to my workouts and shed the extra kilos.”

Happy parenthood to Gul & Rishi!
