Last month, Alia Bhatt left everybody surprised and happy when she announced her pregnancy. The actress is expecting her first child with Ranbir Kapoor, with whom she got hitched in April this year. After the news about her pregnancy came out, celebs showered the couple with love and good wishes. Karan Johar, who is very close to Alia, was in tears when the actress told him about her pregnancy.
In a new interaction with the Times Of India, Karan Johar was asked about his first response to Alia Bhatt’s pregnancy. “I cried. She came to my office. I remember I was having a bad hair day and I was sitting in a hoodie with cap. And she told me this. And my first emotion was that tears just came out and she came and gave me a hug. I was like I can’t believe you are having a baby. It was like your baby is having a baby. It was a very emotional moment for me, it still is!,” said Karan.
He added, “And I feel so much pride. Because really, she was my first burst of being a parent. My first burst of parenting was actually with her and she walked into my office when she was 17. She’s 29 today and these last 12 years have been magical for both of us because I share such a strong bond with her. I can’t wait to hold her baby in my arms. It will be a very emotional moment, as close to when I held my own children.”
In the interim, on the work front, Karan returns with the new season of Koffee With Karan. KWK 7 will debut on July 7 at 7pm on Disney + Hotstar.
