With a deadpan expression, AB Junior says that he is jealous that his wife has relegated him to the background.
“Ash’s day starts and ends with the baby. Since she insists on doing everything for Aaradhya, including giving her a maalish (massage), bathing her and attending to her round-the-clock, I’m now waiting in queue for Ash’s attention.”
The father revealed that now he could carry Aaradhya all the time, play with her, attempt to change her diapers but when she was younger Ash didn’t wanted him to handle the baby because it might have been awkward.
Yes, Abhishek reveals how he has been shut out of the bedroom quite a few times in the last few months because of the baby’s sleep routine.
”Aaradhya wakes up in the night for her feed and a nappy change. Ash, who’s completely clued in, is up in a jiffy. However, I must confess, it took time for me to get used to the new routine. When the baby cried, I woke up too, but couldn’t go back to sleep immediately. So Ash suggested that I sleep in another room till such time as Aaradhya was slightly older.”
Abhishek explains that his wife felt he should move out temporarily because he needed a good night’s sleep before he went for his shootings.
“I can hardly come on set yawning,” he jokes. “Ash suggested that I should sleep separately whenever I have a shoot the next day.”
Abhishek also reveals that he is truly fortunate to have women surrounding him all the time. “At home I have my Nani (Indira Bhaduri), Mom, Shwetadi, Navya Naveli (my niece), Aishwarya and Aaradhya. I also have my chacha’s three daughters. I’m blessed to have so many women around me,” he says.
