Pankhuri Awasthy who was last seen in SAB TV’s popular show ‘Maddam Sir’ is all set to embrace motherhood as the actress is expecting her first child with husband Gautam Rode. We speculated the same upon seeing a few recent videos of the actress on her Instagram handle wherein, the actress can be clearly seen hiding her baby bump and if noticed carefully, the baby bump is clearly visible too.
We reached out to Pankhuri and asked the actress about the same. The actress confirmed her pregnancy and further revealed what was her initial reaction Like when she came to know that she was going to embrace motherhood. Pankhuri said,
Obviously I was very surprised, overwhelmed and happy when I figured out that I was pregnant. I was feeling a little tired for the past few days and I thought of taking a pregnancy test because I had also missed my period. I remember testing with two testing strips and I just sat in the washroom for 5 minutes and kept staring at the testing strip. It was a very overwhelming, surprising, happy and different kind of feeling.”-
We further asked the actress about how did she convey this news to her husband Gautam Rode and what was his initial reaction like. Replying to this, Pankhuri said, “I knew I wanted to record Gautam’s expressions, you know how we see videos of such reevaluations on Instagram. I wanted to do that too and wanted to capture his reaction. What I did was, I just placed the camera and I went to Gautam. Kept the camera on and placed the two test strips on the table and I went up to him. Honestly, I too was feeling very shy and I did not know how to convey this to him. So I kept asking him to see the testing strips. He was flustered. It took him a while to understand what I was trying to tell him, but when he finally registered, he asked me if I was pregnant. When I finally said yes, Gautam was surprised and was very elated.”
Well, the actress is in her sixth trimester and is due in August this year. Pankhuri and Gautam Rode tied the knot in February 2018 and are one of the most adored couples on Television. While Pankhuri has been a part of popular shows like Kya Kasur hai amla ka, Gud Se Meetha Ishq, Suryaputra Karan and more, Gautam too has quite a lot of popular shows added to his kitty.
