Bigg Boss 13 fame Shefali Jariwala recently revealed that she is adopting a child with her husband Parag Tyagi. Shefali said that she has wanted to adopt a child for the longest time and does not care about society's stigma around adopted children. Jariwala is best known for her appearance in the hit item number Kaanta Laga. Jariwala also spoke to her fellow contestant Hindustani Bhau aka Vikas Guppta about her love for kids. The actor and model has also often called Sunny Leone an inspiration as Sunny adopted a baby girl ( Nisha ) a few years ago.
In a recent interview with Bollywood Life Jariwala revealed that it took her some time to convince her husband about the idea of adoption. She said, "It is a very brave decision, especially in the culture we belong to. ‘Why don't you have your own kids? It is reserved for those who cannot have their own.’ Parag and I do not come from that space. Adoption is something I wanted to do as I find the thought very beautiful."
Jariwala also said that her parents introduced her to the idea of adoption at a very young and impressionable age. She added saying, "I was first introduced to it when I was 10 or 12, at a very impressionable age. I have carried it since then. Parag and I have been wedded for four-five years now and obviously, people are asking us about a baby. It is quite normal."
Shefali also admitted that while her family is supportive of her decision it will still take some time for them to fully come to terms with her decision.
