Actor Shaheer Sheikh and his wife Ruchikaa Kapoor were recently blessed with a baby girl Anaya. Shaheer is loving being a father especially because Anaya is their first baby. In a recent interview with ETimes TV, Shaheer talked about it and shared, “Ahh! I can’t really explain in words. The feeling is so new to me and it is still sinking in and I am still trying to figure out what is happening to me because it is all new for me. The feeling is such that it can’t be put together in words. I was told that fathers take time to relate to the journey when the child is born, but from the moment I have held my little one, I have felt such a strong connection with her, I can’t tell you. It is such a beautiful and amazing experience. I’ve never ever in my life felt like this before. I don’t know how to express it. I have not felt this connected to anyone else in life, the way I feel with my daughter. Agar Woh palkein bhi chapakle Yaa thoda sa frown bhi kar le Mujhe lagta hai Kya hogaya… and what I can do for her. It is something else, the feeling is unbelievable and now I can understand what our parents must have gone through or must be going through. I know usually it is said that mothers have a very strong connection but I don’t know why I am so connected to her,”
The 37-year-old actor further talks about the moment when he first held his baby girl in his arms, he says, “When my wife was in labour, doctors were asking me to do so many things. They were asking me to keep a record of weight, time of birth and I could not process things. I was not able to understand what to do and what not to. I was getting so nervous and I was just thinking if everything is going fine. I was continuously thinking about that. Then suddenly things changed and how you look at life changes. You start feeling aap ki jaan Kisi Aur mein Atki hai… I got that feeling when I first held her in my hands. I felt yeh Meri he jaan hai,” concluded he.
