Gul Panag has done the impossible! She has managed to keep her pregnancy a secret even 6 months after the birth of her son, Nihal! Knowing the paparazzi culture, it is difficult to believe, right? But it did happen. Gul, who married Rishi Attari, a pilot, in 2011, became a mother 6 months ago, and now, she is ready to talk about motherhood.

In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, she revealed how she managed to keep her pregnancy a secret. She said, “Rishi and I have always valued our privacy. Becoming parents is a special experience and we decided that we’d like to go through it without the distraction of public attention. Family and close friends knew about Nihal but we refrained from posting anything on the social media.”

She added, “He is almost six months old and it has been a roller coaster ride! I’m charmed by his gurgles and giggles even if it is a bit of a struggle with erratic sleep and feeding schedules. Life and goals are taking shape parallelly, with a little more coordination between Rishi and me to include Nihal.”

Gul says, “Nothing prepares you for a Baby but I’m grateful to my cousin Simran who’s been like a fairy godmother and guided me,” Parenthood is a learning process throughout. “We’re learning as parents and I think we’ll continue to do so till we’re old and grey.” Gul added.

Gul didn’t put on too much weight during the pregnancy. She said, “Nihal was born prematurely so I didn’t put on too much weight. Even through the pregnancy, I took care to eat healthy and have always been very active, so it was easy to get back to my workouts and shed the extra kilos.”

Towards the end, Gul has a message to give to all the couples planning a child. “I think having a baby is a very significant step in life, and like marriage, you should think it through carefully before committing to it. Have children when you are ready to welcome them and can raise them happily and responsibly, not when society says you must,” she said.

Congratulations, Gul!
