Mommy Of 3 Daughters, Teejay Sidhu Pens Note Questioning Societal Bias Towards A Male Child

TV actors Karanvir Bohra and his wife Teejay Sidhu were on cloud nine when they welcomed their baby girl in December last year.

The couple who are already proud parents to four-year-old twin daughters Vienna and Raya Bella has been flooding social media with cute visuals of their third angel ‘Gia Vanessa Snow’.

Wishing the newborn on completing two months, the emotional daddy shared an adorable video.

‘Bombay Sunshine’ aka Teejay also penned a note recently. However, in her post, she highlighted how people are still obsessed with having a boy child and think that a family is complete only when a boy is born to them.

Sharing a family picture, the mommy wrote:

Feb 15th was #FamilyDay and of course, my post is late, as usual! I wanted to share something.

Recently, someone I know had a baby boy. (They already had a girl.) Someone else I know commented, ‘Congrats, NOW your family is complete!’

That left me a little disappointed. Is a family only ‘complete’ when you have a boy? Suppose that person had another girl. Would that mean their family was ‘incomplete?’ Even having just one child is such a #blessing! How many you have after that, or what gender, shouldn’t determine your ‘completeness.’

I’m sure the comment was not meant to be offensive. (Maybe they meant now there was one of each? In that case, the intention could’ve been expressed more clearly.) I just feel as a younger generation, we need to be more responsible with the thoughts/ideas we put out there. Let’s teach others to celebrate #family. For me, the joy that #family brings me is what completes me.

This is how people reacted to her post:

It’s sad the people today still discriminate between a girl and a boy child. Teejay rightly said that even though their intentions weren’t to offend someone, people need to convey their thoughts clearly.
