Mumbai: There are few parents who would think of celebrating the first birthday of their first born in such a novel way. Actress and TV presenter Mandira Bedi and her husband Raj Kaushal have decided to gift a sibling to their one year old son by adopting a girl child!
Vir, Mandira and Raj’s bundle of joy turns one on July 17 and the parents are gung ho about adding another member in the family in a real touching fashion.
Keeping in tune with contemporary wisdom, the couple says that they were contemplating adoption for a while and their son’s birthday came as a good opportunity.
"We`re going to adopt a baby girl," Mandira gushes, excitedly.
"We want Vir to have a little sister. We will be applying to an adoption agency when he turns one. It`s a decision Raj and I made even before we got married - we were very clear that we wanted to adopt a girl”, she said.
Mandira further added. “It takes a month to a year for paperwork and other things to come through. As we wanted a small age difference between both the kids, this is the perfect time. Guess I`m all set for the second one now.”
Great work, Mandira!
