Bolywood actress and Rajasthan Royals co-owner Shilpa Shetty along with her husband Raj Kundra at the launch of tickets of the IPL III in Ahmedabad.
Actress Shilpa Shetty is due to give birth next month and is going to be in for some much-needed pampering. Her businessman husband Raj Kundra is taking a long break from work to be by her side before, during and after her delivery.
This despite the fact that his hands are full with projects. He co-owns Indian Premier League (IPL) team Rajasthan Royals and the matches are currently on. He has also collaborated with Sanjay Dutt on a martial arts championship called the Super Fight League.
But that hasn't taken him away from a sabbatical.
"My wife's expecting now and this is the most important phase of my life and I don't want to be very busy. So I have decided I am not going to go on anymore cricket matches and watch it at home together with Shilpa," Kundra told IANS.
"Once she delivers, I want to spend another month at home for my baby before I get back into business," he added.
A visibly excited Kundra says he is looking forward to the new addition in the family and has started preparing for fatherhood.
"Lots of preparations are going on. I am nervous, but I am ready and excited. Everytime she (Shilpa) has a doctor's appointment, we go together, scans get done and we see this little baby moving," he said.
He is not bothered about the child's sex.
"We don't know if it's a boy or a girl, but whosover it is, we are looking forward to it," added Kundra, who married Shilpa in 2009.
