Barun Sobti who became a household name after his iconic role of ‘Arnav Singh Raizada’ on Star Plus show, Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon, has a piece of good news for everyone. After he married his childhood sweetheart Pashmeen on December 12, 2010, they finally gave birth to a girl a few days back. The couple was immensely happy to share the news that they are blessed by a beautiful daughter. Confirming the news to TOI, Barun said, “Yes, the news is right. She was born last Friday (June 28). We have named her Sifat. It feels amazing and can’t be described in words.”

The couple managed to hide the news for a long time. In an interview to HT, he said, “It was not a plan to hide anything. We told everyone when one is supposed to when pregnant. The baby shower was lovely and it was great to see how much people love you.”Pashmeen’s baby shower was held on May 26. Sanaya Irani and his other friends from the industry also came to wish the best for him at the baby shower.

He further added, “I am exhausted as I have been shooting and running around and taking care of my wife. But I am happy. Right now, we are both taking one day at a time instead of thinking too much about what will happen when the baby comes and other such kind of questions.”He also talked about his parenting skills, “I have not thought about what kind of a parent I would be but I think both of us are prepared in our own way. Moreover, I feel nothing can really prepare you for parenthood as you learn along the way when your baby comes and how you bring your child up. We are ready for the surprises that will come along the way (laughs). I am a realistic person so I think I will be a realistic kind of father to my child. Who knows how you handle the situation that you come across after you become a parent. Being a parent is a huge responsibility.”

Here’s extending our heartiest congratulations to Barun and Pashmeen!
