Amrita Rao on motherhood: I still can’t fathom phenomena; I look at Veer every day and feel ‘Is he for real?’
Actress Amrita Rao and her husband RJ Anmol welcomed their first son Veer in November last year. The couple, who is currently enjoying their parenthood phase, announced the happy news on their respective social media handles. Sharing the picture of holding the hands of their newborn baby boy, they have written, “Hello World… Meet Our Son #Veer He is lookin at his 1st BroFist frm YOU !!! Seek Your Blessings ~Amrita Rao RJ Anmol.” Now in a recent interview with ETimes, the Ishq Vishk star has opened up about how has motherhood been so far and how it has changed her life.
Amrita on being asked how motherhood has been treating her said “motherhood is like a mix of emotions. Each day there is wonderment, excitement, exhaustion, love, frustration, joy, entertainment and so many emotions in one jar.” She was quoted as saying, “I still cannot fathom the phenomena. I look at Veer every day and feel, ‘Is he for real?’ The first thing a baby teaches you is time management and discipline.”
Further, when asked about a change that she sees in herself, the Main Hoon Na star mentioned that she never thought she would be “such a hands-on mom”, adding that she doesn’t even have a nanny and therefore she and Anmol are doing everything themselves right from bathing the baby, massaging to nappy changing, and playing with him.
“And, yes, in the mirror I still look like that girl who’s come back home from college (laughs!), just a bit fuller though. Anmol tells me from cute I’ve become hot after I’ve had the baby. I think every woman looks hotter after she has had a baby,” Amrita said.
The Vivah actress also revealed that she will not be taking any more breaks from films and is currently looking at a movie script along with one for the OTT space.
