Singer Shweta Pandit is currently cooped up in Italy with her husband Ivano and 2-month old daughter. Amongst the adversely affected countries around the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic was Italy. Amid all the sorrowful news, Shweta kept the birth of her daughter under wraps.
The singer and her husband Ivano welcomed their first child together, a daughter on February 8, 2020. Shweta had posted a gender reveal party throwback video where she flaunted her baby bump. Speaking of which she said, “We’ve named her Izana, a name given as a title to the kind and compassionate monarchs in Ethiopia, and it means most powerful.”
When Shweta was quizzed about why she didn’t share the news of her daughter’s arrival with the world, she replied, “It didn’t feel right to share our happiest news when everything around us was so difficult. The COVID-19 crisis in Italy was worse than it is in India currently. But now that the lockdown here is almost getting lifted, Ivano and I decided to share our happiness.”
She also revealed how she felt about staying away from her family and close friends through pregnancy and delivery. Shweta said, “The most challenging part is staying away from my own family through pregnancy and delivery. I never thought that I’d be able to take care of a newborn, but I’ve surprised myself. I’m learning a lot from my mother through video calls. My dadu (Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj), too calls me every day to check on us and see Izana.”
Talking about Shweta Pandit, she has crooned many hit songs of Bollywood namely You’re My Love (Partner), Ishq Khudai (Rudraksh), Thug Le (Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl) amongst other chartbusters.
