Remember how a few days ago Sunny Leone said that she might just ‘walk in with a baby in hand. And everyone will be shocked, where did the baby come from?’? Turns out Leone was not joking about ‘having a baby’. She hinted at adoption as an option, given that she was not physically ready to have a baby at this point of time.
Sunny and husband Daniel Weber decided to go the adoption way. The couple has adopted a 21-month-old baby girl from Latur, reports Hindustan Times.
The girl, who Sunny and Daniel have named Nisha Kaur Weber, made the couple fall in ‘love at first sight’.
Sunny and Daniel spoke about the feeling of parenthood. Leone said, “Right now, it’s all so brand new because it has just been a few days. The moment we got the picture (of Nisha); I was so excited, happy, emotional and [experienced] so many different feelings. We literally had three weeks to finalise everything. Usually, people get nine months to prepare!”
Daniel added, “Our life is always so crazy. There are no nine months for us. For me, it has just been lots of paperwork for two years and then one day, that’s it. You get an email that you have been matched with a child. It’s so crazy.”
Earlier this week, Sunny said how she might just surprise everyone with a baby sometime soon. She said, “Physically having a baby at this moment will be difficult as a lot of things are happening in my life. But who knows, some day I will just walk in with a baby in hand. And everyone will be shocked, where did the baby come from?”
Sunny also said how she wasn’t ‘sure about surrogacy’, an option that several Bollywood stars have chosen in the recent past. “I am not sure about surrogacy. Actually, I don’t know. I believe God gives you different moments in life and you have to grab one. Let’s see,” said Sunny.
The couple also said how they just did not have the time to have a baby and hence chose to adopt a child. “I don’t know about everybody else, but for us, it didn’t matter even for a second whether it was our child or she not being our biological child. For us, it was about starting a family and I might not [have a biological child] because of our schedules and so many other things but we both thought, ‘why don’t we just adopt?'” said Sunny.
The couple said that they decided to adopt Nisha after a visit to an orphanage in Latur, Maharashtra, two years ago.
