The list of our favorite Bollywood parents in recent times is topped by Genelia and Ritesh without a doubt. The couple has been spotted buying diapers for the junior and taking him out on foreign trips. They posted adorable pictures of junior Deshmukh, ‘Riaan’ on his first birthday on 25 November and we just couldn’t stop doting.
If you’ve missed out all the fun, here’s everything you will enjoy about their parenthood journey so far. You’re sure to go, “Awww”:
Isn’t this family picture posted by Ritesh on his Facebook page overflowing with cuteness?
Eight years of courting and not one controversy! That’s quite an achievement. Riaan will surely grow up to understand the value of true love.
This was, in fact, the first picture the couple posted announcing the name of their new born son, Riaan.
While taking an evening walk in Poland, Ritesh suggested the name to a pregnant Genelia and she agreed instantly. Only later did they learn the meaning of the name. It means ‘ruler’ or ‘king’.
In his own words, Ritesh said:
Does Riaan resemble his dad/baba more?
Or does he resemble his Aai/Maa/Mom more?
This was right after Riaan completed one month on December 25, 2014.
On Genelia’s 28th birthday, Ritesh posted this cute message on Twitter, which was not just loved by Genelia, but all of us too.
After all, the doting father is so affectionate and caring toward his wife Genelia, lovingly called ‘Baiko’. ‘Baiko’ means ‘wife’ in Marathi.
Thanks to no shooting schedules, but Ritesh would have gone otherwise too. At least that’s what we believe.
He says Genelia was obviously the expert at it. And the first time he changed the diaper, this is what happened:
I remember the first time I took cotton, dipped it in water, wiped his bum and put the same cotton in clean water. And she screamed, “It doesn’t go there!”
He also got a Rakhi in return, which read ‘Riaan Dada’.
Don’t we all adore it!
