Since the couple shares the good bonding, they still do not have any children. Anita, who aged 40, had previously talked with dailymail.co.uk back on 4 May 2016, about her plan for the motherhood.
She claimed that she was not ready to have children and her career was her main concern. Also, she concentrated that she would be happy to welcome a mother in her early 40’s.
"I love the idea of babies and lots of friends have them, but my life right now is so incredible and exciting that I don’t feel there’s anything missing. My girlfriends say that I’ll know when it’s time because I’ll wake up one morning and, bam, I’ll be broody. But it hasn’t happened yet. Maybe I’m being naive, but I feel I’ve got a bit of time; I’m happy to have babies in my early 40s.’
Well, with her aged to 40, she frequently encounters with the personal question about her plans for motherhood. She also stated that someone said her that career is a career but there should be time for family too.
In addition to this, an outsider also approached her questioning when she is going to make Bhupi, a father. With the pressure from her family, she still has not given a thought about have a baby. But she likely to be wanted to start a family in her early 40's as she claimed that women can have babies in their 40's too.
Also, she wants to eradicate the traditional thinking of the Asian girls that they can do what they want rather than stuck into being wives and mother. Her action became stronger after she filmed Who Do You Think You Are?
