When a couple conceives, they name every moment since then to their little bundle of joy and dream of how life would be post the wait of those nine months. Be it looking forward to listening to their heartbeat, spotting their little one (literally!) in the ultrasound or finally holding their baby for the first time with happy tears in their eyes, a couple is on cloud nine when they are promoted to parenthood. But as blissful as embracing parenthood sounds, miscarriage or any sort of mishappening is shattering for the couple. And as it is rightly said, what doesn’t break you makes you stronger! Karan Patel and Ankita Karan Patel prove it just right! (Also Read: Shahid Kapoor Turns Santa For Kids Misha Kapoor And Zain Kapoor, Mira Rajput Kapoor Shares A Glimpse)
Yeh Hai Mohabbatein fame, Karan Patel’s wife, Ankita Bhargava suffered a miscarriage in 2018 and eventually, the couple moved on with their lives. Karan got busy with his work commitments and pampering his wife, while Ankita found solace in painting, which added colours to her life. 2019 came as a special year for Ankita and Karan as their wish to embrace parenthood finally got fulfilled this year. After a lot of speculations, in November, Karan had confirmed his wife’s pregnancy and the lovebirds are proud parents to a little angel.
