Abhishek Bachchan has revealed he misses his wife Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan’s attention after the couple had their baby daughter in November 2011.
“Ash’s day starts and ends with the baby. Since she insists on doing everything for Aaradhya, including giving her a massage, bathing her and attending to her round-the-clock, I’m now waiting in [a] queue for Ash’s attention.
“Aaradhya wakes up in the night for her feed and a nappy change. Ash, who’s completely clued in, is up in a jiffy. However, I must confess, it took time for me to get used to the new routine.
“When the baby cried, I woke up too, but couldn’t go back to sleep immediately. So Ash suggested that I sleep in another room till such time as Aaradhya was slightly older.”
Aishwarya will be at Cannes this month with baby Aaradhya.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan have named their daughter Aaradhya Bachchan.
It had been speculated that the Bachchans were looking for a name beginning with the letter ‘A’.
The announcement was made 118 days after the birth of their daughter, who had previously been known in the media by the nickname ‘Beti B’.
Abhishek Bachchan has revealed that his daughter resembles his wife Aishwarya Rai-Bachchan.
Bachchan told DNA India: “Thankfully she resembles her mother, but I have been told by the veterans that children’s face changes over time. I think it sounds better she looks like her mother.
“No matter how good is your vocabulary, you can never get [proper] words of what you feel when you see the child… It is wonderful.”
He added that the month-old baby, which is his first, has not yet been named by her family.
Abhishek Bachchan has said that he is struggling to decide on a name for his daughter.
“The suggestions still pour in and still we haven’t managed to finalise a name,” he tweeted. “Evenings are spent reading out all your suggestions in front of the family and trying to decide. Will decide soon. Many thanks again. Lots of love.” he added.
Big B went on to speak about spending time with his granddaughter too!
“She sleeps through most of the day except for feeds and has been most obedient and well behaved!” he said.
“The moments spent with her even though one encounters shut eyes, are the most pleasant and fulfilling, but what after. I think there is an indication here to take up vocations that one has always wanted to pursue – that music lesson, language… reading to catch up… and on.” he added.
It’s been reported that Aishwarya Rai & Abhishek Bachchan will hold a ‘naming’ ceremony around Christmas with close friends and family as the couple reveal the name of their new baby girl!
Reportedly, the caterer has already been finalised and the menu will include only vegetarian dishes with a smattering of South Indian offerings as well.
Apparently, everyone in the family is coming up with a set of names each and then, we’re guessing, that whatever is the most popular and agreed upon will be the chosen name! Ash constantly says: that the ‘Bachchan household is a very democratic one’ and this seems to be the case!
Abhishek Bachchan has spoken about being a parent and understanding what it’s like being a father!
He also spoke about how Aishwarya Rai is coping much better with the early mornings, describing her as a ‘super trooper’ ‘bionic’ mother!
Abhishek tweeted the following message on his twitter page:
“How do women/mothers do it? I’m walking around like a zombie and the Mrs. Is like a super trooper with a bit of bionic woman thrown in!!!
Just as I step into fatherhood and parenthood, I’ve never seen myself rely and depend on my parents more. Guess that happens with every new Parent. And I finally understand why they still at the age of 35 treat me like a baby and cannot accept that I’m a grown man today.
Much like my father
@SrBachchan I too spent the day observing every little thing about the little one. But my greatest observation I don’t think I’ll be any different.”

“Akshay said ‘Sorry’ to Abhishek,” a source said.
“He respects Aishwarya and the Bachchan family a lot. He is naturally very embarrassed about Russell’s remarks.”
