Karan Johar is extremely concerned for his kids because of their nannies!

Karan Johar's fear is not unfounded and this can actually happen to any growing baby.

Karan Johar's twins recently turned six months, and to celebrate their special day the famous filmmaker shared their first-ever picture on social media. Along with it, he admitted that his six-month-old twins were truly the "loves of his life."

Naturally, this first big milestone has made him a proud father. But also a concerned one.

Yes, that's correct. The 44-year-old filmmaker who travels quite a bit and often ends up leaving his twins in the care of his own mother Hirroo Johar and his four nannies.

Johar's nannies are making him anxious

But this nanny business has made him quite anxious and worried. In fact, he even penned the same in his emotional letter addressed to his babies.

I miss my babies!!!! #roohiandyash

In his letter, the doting father began by saying that his twins had completely changed his life.

"I was 44-years-old when you were born to me, and almost immediately you made me as sentimental as a Hallmark greeting card. I spout clichés on how magical the two of you are, how you have filled the vacuum in my life and how you made my house a home, but it’s true," he wrote.
Johar added, "You’ve changed my life completely, and I’m not complaining. I worry a lot more than I ever did—I have these strange thoughts about my insurance premium, my will, even the division of my assets. I stay awake some nights wondering who I can appoint your guardian if something happened to me."

He also revealed the very first thing he did after he saw his babies.

"My first dream is that I’m there long enough"

"Do you want to know the first thing I did when you were born? I started going to the gym and got myself a nutritionist. All to get healthier, so I’m around. I’m aware that the one thing I can give you, that I owe you, is my life. So when I think of what dreams and aspirations I have for you, my first dream is that I’m there long enough," he wrote.

He further added, "Most people underrate the gravity of the decision to bring a child into this world. It’s considered a part of regular life—you get married and procreate. It’s simply the done thing. But in today’s day and age, filled with urban angst and crazy schedules where one is barely able to handle their own life, bringing a new life is a big decision. It felt instinctual, I just knew I was ready—to nurture you in the way that I knew best."

After writing about his love for his babies, Johar finally his biggest and perhaps strangest fear.

"I’m petrified that..."

The doting father shared, "I’ve already started imagining things like your first day at school, your first words and even your first acknowledgement of me. To tell you the truth, every single day I whisper ‘papa, papa, papa’ into your ears because I’m petrified that your first words will be in Malayalam (all our four nurses are from Kerala)!"

Well, that is scary but equally funny. However, there is a good chance that the baby's first words turn out to be in the language he most hears.

Baby's language at six months

Some studies suggest that by the time your baby hits the six-month mark, he or she is able to babble different words and understand the language spoken to him. So there are chances he will pick up the language that is spoken to him.

By this time, babies start responding to their own names. In fact, they may even say "ba-ba" or"da-da" and even use the tone of their voice to share their feelings with you. However, there will still be sometime before the baby can actually mouth "daddy" or "papa."

So while Johar's fears are not unfounded, he may have to continue speaking to them in Hindi if he wants them to follow him quickly.
