This is way too precious. After months of trying, singer/ actor Lift Sooput and his wife ‘Ying’ Narawan Nirattisai are expecting and you can tell from his interview he is jumping for joy, he can’t seem to hold himself back. “She is 3 months pregnant now. The truth is I wanted a child for a long time. I waited for a year, finally we have succeeded. At this moment, we have not prepared much. It’s more about caring for the mother first. Reaching the the 3 month mark means we have reached the safe period. From this point on, we have to watch our physical health, our eating, and resting.”
Succeeded? I don’t know why I laughed at this, he made it seem like he won a race and his trophy is a baby. The guy is beaming.
I remember back when there were articles, to which I did not pay attention to, about Lift wanting to have a child and was trying but could not conceive. So reporters asked Lift how did he succeed this time. Before he tried so hard, but when he didn’t try, he and his wife were able to conceive. Lift answered that had to do with emotions. “I think it’s all about emotions. Like I said, people who want (a child) but can’t conceive; however, if we relax, not be tense, and let things go naturally, the child will come.”—awww, he is giving advice like his expert….like I succeeded you can too. Too cute.
There was a rumor that he made a vow to the heavens for a child, Lift said he didn’t go that far. “No, I didn’t go that far. However, when we went somewhere (to a religious place), I would give a ‘wai’ to the sacred object and ask for a child. I didn’t grumble, I was not stressed about it. If it (a baby) came, it’s good. If it doesn’t come, it’s alright. We learned about the pregnancy back in October at the BNH hospital, they estimated the due date to be July 2, 2010.”
Lift joked that it is the same year that Tao Somchai’s son is being born, they can battle it out. Lift doesn’t care about the sex of his child but he thinks it might be a boy. “For my first child, either is fine, whatever the gender. You know people have been telling me that if it a boy, the mother experiences a lot of morning sickness, and also find the scent of perfume and soap revolting. Truthly, I don’t know yet. We have to wait until next month to find out the gender. This period is the period to care for the mother. In 6 months, I will have to care for my child.”
Lift’s family is even more happy then he is. “They are crazy about it more than I am. We are all very happy. They have warned me that I’m going to be a father soon. If I do anything, I should think about my child and the future of my family. I believe it is like what they said in the olden days, when you have a kid of your own, then you will know what it is like.”
