Lara Dutta to take parenting tips from Abhishek Bachchan

The expectant mommy is eager to take help from soon-to-be daddy Bachchan junior

Congratulatory messages have been pouring in for Lara Dutta and Mahesh Bhupathi from all quarters. And one such message came to the beauty queen from her longtime friend Abhishek Bachchan via Twitter. “Paaji! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!! welcome on board,” he said. Lara replied to that saying, “Thank you so much AB! You’ll be sorted by the time our turn comes, will call for tips!” Lara’s delivery is due in the month of January next year, just two months after AB’s wife Aishwarya’s delivery date. Looks like Lara’s hoping that Bachchan junior will pass on some important experiences on parenting a child once he’s through. Lara had worked opposite AB in her second film Mumbai Se Aaya Mera Dost in 2003 and the two have been friends ever since. They also went on to work on Yash Raj Films’ Jhoom Barabar Jhoom a few years ago. Guess they’ve found another reason to bond now: their impending parenthood! But shouldn’t Lara be taking mother-care tips from fellow beauty queen Ash instead? Well, we wouldn’t be surprised if the two sexy mommies start sharing notes on pregnancy very soon!
