The mother and her newborn are still in the hospital. She adds, “I am hoping to be discharged by the end of this week and my daughter in a fortnight. I am yet to hold my child and gaze at her lovingly. She was with me briefly before she had to be moved to NICU being a premature baby. She has to put on some weight.”

Has she zeroed in on a name for the newest member of the family? “We are contemplating a couple of names. In our family, it’s the bua’s (sister-in-law) job to name the child and we have been busy sending our requests to her. I am sure she will do a great job at it. We are looking at a name that starts with A. Just like the first letter in the alphabet, I hope my daughter always stands out in life (smiles). For now, it’s celebration time for us,” she replies.
The actress, who tied the knot with Patna-based businessman Ayushman Agarwal in February 2012, advises women to embrace motherhood at an early age. “Taking from my experience, I would say that if you really want to be a mother, don’t wait. Do it in your 20s or early 30s for a less complicated experience. Motherhood doesn’t change anything,” she concludes.
