We all know that Aaradhya Bachchan is the first priority of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. But you will be shocked to read that, Aishwarya did not know that one could hire a reliable help for a child, when Aaradhya was born.
In an exclusive interview with Subhash K Jha, Aishwarya spoke about her tiny tot Aaradhya Bachchan, and how she never hired a help for her child. She said, "People assume I've a posse of workers helping me. Wrong! I've never had nurses and nannies for Aaradhya. This was partly due to ignorance. I didn't know one could hire reliable help for one's child. There was just one helper and she was my extended hand. Otherwise it's just me and my daughter."
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan further added, "It's not easy for any working mother. Every wife mother and professional has to do a lot of planning. The stuff I pack every day has to include activities for Aaradhya during the day, and her food. But I'd say I am fortunate I can bring my child to my workplace. A lot of mothers can't. It may be a lot of planning, but I happily do it for my child. And I do it on my own."
''With me its slightly different. Even when I was not acting I was doing endorsements, events , etc. Aaradhya would accompany me to all these. Motherhood is all about planning. During Jazbaa, Sanjay Gupta phased out the shooting over 51 days according to my time constraints,'' the beautiful actress said.
In the same interview to Firstpost, Bollywood diva, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan revealed that she gets very nervous when she is in a crowd with her little bundle of joy, Aaradhya Bachchan.

Talking about Aaradhya Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan further added, ''So I proceed protectively with her through the crowd while she remains cool. Everyone is beaming and waving and calling out her name.''

''It's a friendly world for her. Everyone seems to know her and she needs to know everybody. So there is no attempt to make her feel like a celebrity,'' Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said.
''Aaradhya has to have a normal life. I've explained to her that is my life and now she's part of it. So she's comfortable in it,'' says the gorgeous actress.

When asked, ''It couldn't be easy to create an atmosphere of normalcy around Aaradhya?'' Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said, ''It didn't just happen. One has to work on it, channelize all energies into keeping it all real and normal for Aaradhya.''
''I am glad I took time off to work on looking after her. When people meet Aaradhya they say she's such a normal child. That's my reward as a mother,'' Aishwarya Rai Bachchan said.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan says that her world has completely changed now, ''But she has changed the way I look at the world. The world that I now occupy with my daughter is my reality. Everything else is a secondary.''
