Ask any new working mom and she will tell you how stressed she feels about the idea of going back to work leaving her newborn at home.
In a country like India, where raising children is still seen majorly as women’s jobs, many women struggle to seek support from their family or husband. But, some lucky ones do get full support from their parents, in-laws, and husband too!
And, one such fortunate soul is Deepika Singh Goyal.
Famously known for her progressive role of Sandhya in Diya Aur Baati Hum, Deepika became a mother on May 20, 2017. This is when Deepika and her hubby, Rohit Raj Goyal, started their parenting journey.
For almost two-and-a-half years, Deepika had been on maternity leave owing to her pregnancy and then taking care of her baby boy Soham. But now, as she wanted to get back to work in TV series, Kavach season 2, she had to face the toughest decision of motherhood i.e. leaving her little one at home.
But, what made it easier for Deepika than the rest of us, is her loving husband, Rohit Raj Goyal. Rohit has always been supportive of his wife’s choices, and this time it was no different.
While sharing her comeback and the support of her husband, Deepika toldTOI,
“Rohit has always been supportive. He has taken a break from work right now so that I can concentrate on my new show. Our son, Sohum, is almost one now. I am blessed to have a husband and family that motivate me to pursue my dreams. They are my constant pillars of strength.”
But it isn’t the first time, Rohit has supported Deepika in her career. Deepika has often spoken reverently about him. In an interview earlier, Deepika was quoted as saying,
“He has taught me everything. Till now, whatever I have learnt is all because of Rohit. He has moulded me into an actress. I can trust him blindly. We are on set for almost 12-18 hours. We know everything about each other’s likes and dislikes. So, I am sure he is the right person for me.”
We believe there is nothing sexier than a husband who encourages his wife to follow her dreams! And, as a society, we need to applaud and celebrate husbands like Rohit as they go the extra mile to support their wives and their aspirations!
