Don't speculate about second child, urges Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
Actress Aishwarya Rai has urged everyone not to speculate about her second child after Aaradhya. She said that when such a moment comes she will make it known.
The actress was at an event to announce her association with a stem cell banking brand. Asked if she will opt for stem cell banking a second time, Aishwarya said: "I know what are you trying to ask. Whenever such a moment comes, you all will get to know. But please don't speculate till then.
The actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said that becoming a mother has been a blessing for her.
"Change is constant in life. Every experience contributes to change and growth, making you hopefully a better human being. Becoming a mother has been a blessing and I cherish this gift from god," Aishwarya said.
"Aaradhya (her daughter) is a wonderful blessing in our lives and she is very special and it is a loving fulfilment. I am grateful for this experience," she said.
Aishwarya said she had opted for banking her daughter's stem cells.
"I was aware about stem cell banking as a development probably out of my interest in the medical field as most of my friends are doctors. I have been aware of this way before I got married. I was always fascinated by it. Any research and development in general let alone in science and healthcare has always been of interest to me," she said.
"The beauty of this association fulfils the wish of social encouragement. It is addressing a mindset that is fairly new to our country at large. I am happy to contribute, educate and make people aware about this scientific development," she added.
For Aishwarya, it has been busy time professionally as she has lots of advertising and promotional work.
Aishwarya refused to divulge anything, when she was asked about the plans to celebrate her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan's birthday on October 11.
"You will know the plans. For us festivities begin from October to November, besides festivals like Navratri and Dusshera there are lot many birthdays in our family that come in this period. It is a busy and special time for us," she said.
"With respect and love we wish paa and other family members a happy birthday. Also, we wish everybody happy festival period," she added.
