In the recent times, several new celeb moms have taken to social media to announce that their toddlers have contracted the coronavirus. After Nakuul Mehta-Jankee Mehta’s son Sufi and Kishwer Merchant-Suyyash Rai’s son Nirvair tested positive for Covid-19, now Mohit Malik and Addite Malik’s son Ekbir has also been diagnosed with the infections.
Addite took to social media to share a long note on her maternal journey and gave details about Ekbir’s diagnosis and what they all went through as parents of a 9-month-old baby boy. She wrote, “My little Ekbir who has never had a fever till date, woke up one morning slightly warm. We checked his temperature and it was 102 degrees. The first thought that came to our mind was to test everyone and unfortunately Ekbir and one of my househelps tested positive. Initially, I was shocked. I was wondering how did this happen but then Mohit and I decided that we had to look at it positively. Ekbir would fight it out and so would all of us as a family with increased immunity.”
She also revealed that Mohit had tested positive last year at the same time when she was seven months pregnant. Talking about their modus operandi to combat the situation, Addite wrote, “Children catch on to their parents' anxiety and nervousness quickly. It took us 2 to 3 hours but we decided that the house had to be playful for Ekbir and touchwood by God's Grace he is out of it. We were all isolated in separate rooms and we all finished our quarantine were tested and are negative. For me the learning was that yes Covid is dangerous and yes I was nervous but when it came down to it, we all fighters, including our children. Stay safe, take all the precautions but if you still end up letting Covid enter your home, remember not to give up! Fight it out and win the battle...”
