In May 2021, television's sweetheart, Charu Asopa had announced the news of expecting her first child with her hubby, Rajeev Sen. Since then, the duo has been sharing snippets of their pregnancy journey with their fans. And, after much waiting, they had become parents to a little princess on November 1, 2021. Since then, Charu and Rajeev have been enjoying their parenthood phase for the last month.
It was Rajeev Sen, who had announced the news of becoming a father for the first time on his Instagram handle. He had shared a series of pictures from the hospital room where Charu and Rajeev can be seen cherishing the moment of holding their little one for the first time. The actor had shared the news of welcoming a baby girl, and had written:
"Blessed with a baby girl Charu is doing fine & fit .. So proud of my wife for being strong right till the end .. Thank you all for your prayers .. Thank you God."
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Charu Asopa Sen opened up on her experience of holding her baby for the first time, whom she had given birth in her 37th week. She said:
“I had to get a C-section in the 37th week. The first time the doctor took me to see her, she was in the OT. I started crying like a baby because she was so small.”
Going further in the interview, Charu revealed how she wanted to take Ziana, home on Diwali and therefore requested her doctor to discharge her on November 4, 2021. Sharing the details, Charu added:
''I had told the doctors that I want to take Ziana home on Diwali, which was on November 4, and she was born on the 1st. We requested them, and they agreed, as we wanted to bring our Laxmi home on such an auspicious occasion. I was perfectly fine the day before, but on the 4th, since they had given me spinal anesthesia, I had massive headache and started puking. But since I had made up my mind, I took her home anyhow.”
However, it was Charu's nanad, Sushmita Sen, who was very excited to welcome the newborn to the family. Talking about the newbie bua's happiness, Charu said:
“Didi was so happy. When my operation happened at the time of delivery, Rajeev and didi both were there. The moment I came out of the OT, Ziana was in Didi’s hands, I got happy.”
Since Ziana's birth, everybody in the Sen family was ecstatic about her name. And, it was Sushmita's younger daughter, Alisah, who had named her little sister. Sharing how Ziana got her name, Charu explained:
“Bhua decides the name, so didi had kept some boy and girl names ready, and one of them was Zian if it was a boy. When she was born, Alisah suggested Ziaan ka Ziana kar dete hain. Then didi searched if there is actually such a name in Hindu sanskriti. Everything was perfect.”
On the work front, Charu Asopa was last seen in a music video, Bannii.
