Kishwer Merchant on getting pregnant naturally at 40: There is no need to succumb under any pressure
A couple of days ago, Kishwer Merchant and Suyyash Rai announced that they were expecting their first child together. It's a surreal feeling for the two lovebirds and first-time parents-to-be. In an interview, recently, Kishwer Merchant and Suyyash Rai revealed that it was a surprise for them both to find Kishwer pregnant. Yes, in an interview with Pinkvilla, Kishwer Merchant and Suyyash Rai opened up on their feelings now that the news is out and more. When asked Kishwer about her feeling about being pregnant she said, "It's amazing, I just can't describe it in words. I mean, after all, it's my first baby! I am super nervous too as it's my first time and I don't really know what to do. But thankfully we have our family, friends who have kids to guide us better. So I am sure it will be sorted."
Suyyash Rai, on the other hand, is experiencing mixed feelings as of now. "It's a beautiful feeling, I can't express in words. I mean I am super nervous and tensed too but moreover, it's a fabulous feeling." They opened up on how they learned about the pregnancy saying, "So we got to know about our pregnancy on the 17th of January and by then I was already two-months pregnant but I just didn't realize it all. It was when I started feeling tired and low that it struck me that probably pregnancy could be the reason behind my lethargy. I got Suyyash to get the home pregnancy testing kits and that's when we got to know that I was expecting. It came as a shocker for us initially as we weren't expecting it at all. We hadn't planned it. It was like a big shocker in the beginning but it gradually turned into a pleasant surprise."
Suyyash added, "It was a shocker for us first when we got to know about the baby but we now believe that it's a gift from God, it's his blessing. We really want to enjoy the new chapter of our life." Kishwer Merchant is 40 right now and conceived naturally. This happens to break stereotypes amongst women that after an-age conceiving naturally is impossible. Talking about the same, Kishwer said, " have conceived naturally at 40 and I don't think that age is a major problem in today's era in terms of conceiving. Nobody can say that in my case I mean, as I said I conceived naturally at 40 and I think it's fantastic. I believe 40 is the new 30. There's nothing to worry about is what I really want to tell women. You can get married at 35, 36 or whenever like I did and have your babies too whenever you feel like. Yes, that's a different story if you want to be a young mother, then you will have to plan accordingly but otherwise, I don't think there is any need to succumb under any norm or pressure."
Dad-to-be Suyyash opened up on how he has become more responsible and has been pampering baby and the mom-to-be. "The daddy-to-be is super excited and is just making me eat all the time, actually more for the baby. He wants his baby to eat everything possible," he said while Kishwer added, "Our whole equation has completely changed in the past two months. It has become 100% better than before. Suyyash has started to talk to the child already, he is that excited and eager. He is taking care of me and how!"
Kishwer Merchant and Suyyash Rai are rooting for opposite genders. Yes, you read that right. "Well we want a healthy baby but if I have to make a choice then I am slightly vouching for a boy. Also because I really will get him to play cricket and do those things that I missed out on as a child. And Kishwer wants a girl. But moreover, I just want my child to be happy, healthy, and grow up in a nice and joyous environment," Suyyash told Pinkvilla.
Well, we cannot wait to see if it's mini-Kishwer or Mini-Suyyash.
