Kareena reacted to that and said, "I would say you're a lovely husband, Saif wouldn't stay one night with me in the hospital." Ranbir laughed, "I don't think Alia would say that but I consider myself a good husband."

Ranbir also spoke about his reaction when he got to know about Alia's pregnancy, he shared, "It was delightful. There was no other emotion except for excitement." Ranbir also shared that they've had many sleepless nights. "We have a good amount of help, yet still for the first two months atleast, we had a lot of sleepless nights because when you have the excitement of your first child and she is sleeping between us in bed, you're alert even with just a little bit of movement," shared Ranbir.
