Speaking with India Today, Debina spoke about people giving their opinion on how she should be around her baby. “When people try and give an opinion on how I should treat my baby, it doesn’t bother me, but it is hurtful. I know, as an actor, I am used to trolls, but this role of mine is new. It is hurtful when people say things like ‘at least hold the baby correctly’."

She added, "People do not understand that I am the mother and if I am holding the baby I have brought into this world with so much love, why would I be careless? If I feel that the baby is comfortable and I am comfortable holding my baby that way, I am such a strong person, and my one hand is enough to hold her. So, when people say something like that, it reminds me of the phrase in Hindi ‘maa se jyada mausi ko dard (a Hindi proverb)’.”

Debina and Gurmeet welcomed their baby daughter in April this year. The couple shared the news with their fans and followers on Instagram as they gave a glimpse of their baby girl's little hand. "With utmost gratitude we welcome our baby girl into this world. 3.4.2022 Thank you for all your love and blessings. Love and gratitude Gurmeet and Debina," the caption read.

Gurmeet and Debina tied the knot in 2011. The couple shared pregnancy news in February 2022. The duo featured together on several reality shows, including Nach Baliye and Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 5.
