I couldn't relate to the euphoria around the birth of my baby, and it took me a while to feel the connect with him. While my husband talks to him for hours, even when the baby is asleep, my bond with him is growing with every passing day. He is more excited than me."
Have They Selected The Baby’s Name?
When asked whether they have zeroed in on a name, she said, "I haven't thought of any name since the delivery was a bit unexpected. My husband has all crazy geeky suggestions, which I shoot down.

After that, even if I work, I will take it easy and will carry the baby with me, if need be. I hope to strike the work-life balance, somehow."
