Mumbai: While Aishwarya Rai has been a hands on mother to daughter Aaradhya, dad Abhishek Bachchan hasn’t been able to do much.
The excited father is happy that his little daughter is now six months old and he is hoping to help Ash with baby chores.
“I can now carry her all the time, play with her, attempt to change her diapers,” said Abhishek to a daily. “Ash didn`t want me to handle our baby when she was younger, because it may have been awkward,” Abhi added.
Apparently, Abhishek was asked to leave the bedroom quite a few times due to the baby’s 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 that Aaradhya was slightly older,” added the actor.
But wasn’t he hurt to be shut out of his own bedroom? “Ash suggested that I should sleep separately whenever I have a shoot the next day. I can hardly go on the sets yawning," he reasoned.
The actor also admitted that he is tad bit jealous of the mother daughter duo and the bond they share. “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.”
