It seems like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is one of the most protective mothers in the world. As any mother would with their children, the former Miss World shares a great relationship with her daughter Aaradhya. She seems so fond of her daughter that she is always spotted with her wherever she goes.
Recently, in an interview with DNA, Aishwarya Rai revealed a lot of things about her daughter and the relationship she shares with her. She is so loved and protective that she said that she wouldn’t send Aaradhya off with her staff. Well, we wonder why. Just read on to find out.
Talking about her love and care for her daughter, and what is seen as probably hinting at Kareena Kapoor’s son Taimur Ali Khan, Aishwarya revealed that she doesn’t need an entourage to take care of Aaradhya. She said:
“I would not send her off with my staff. I’d rather be with her because that’s how I’ve always thought I’d be.”
The Bollywood actor said that she always wanted to be with her daughter.
“Maybe, people think I should hit the gym, lose some weight, but I wanted to be with my daughter. I haven’t kept a posse of nurses – maybe, I would just have one and when they would take leave, I’d be doing everything all alone. So many times, my narrations have got canceled because I was busy catering to my baby.”
The 44-year-old said that her daughter has become comfortable with paparazzi. She asserted saying:
“Now when I travel abroad, I don’t take help because I can manage Aaradhya on my own. It’s nice to see that today, she is so comfortable with the paparazzi.”
Aishwarya also said that Aaradhya hasn’t lost her innocence despite being the center of attention.
“Usually, when kids are in the spotlight, they tend to lose their innocence. Aaradhya has still managed to retain that. I have tried to give her a normal upbringing and have never made much ado about it. At the same time, we also have to accept that this is and will be her reality.”
Speaking about Aaradhya’s initial days, Aishwarya Rai said:
“When Aaradhya was much younger, I had seen a few international celebs having discussions about maintaining security for their kids and that does shape the way you are when your time comes. Your protective instincts are naturally strong towards your newborn. It’s what I reacted and responded to – there wasn’t any panic or drama to it.”
Meanwhile, the former Miss World said that she will continue being protective of her daughter.
“I can see a mini-me in Aaradhya. I go every day with her to school to drop and pick her up. I do it because I like to do it. I enjoy the time that we spend together. I’m blissed out and that’s the contentment that everyone gets to see. I’m glad about the choices I’ve made with regards to her. I’ll continue being protective, but I’ll still keep on trying to make everything normal.”
