New parents Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh are probably the most loved celebrity couple. They dated throughout their career, and then married each other in the presence of the who's who of Bollywood.

Now they are parents to two boys Riaan and Rahyl.

But in all these developments in their lives, the couple has become more secure and responsible. In fact, while shelling out candid details of his relationship with wife Genelia, Riteish Deshmukh revealed how his marriage and fatherhood has changed him for the better.

"I started dating Genelia when she was 18 years old and I have seen how hard she has worked. When we did our first film, she would shoot in the morning in Hyderabad, fly back to Mumbai, appear for her college exams and come back to the set. I have seen her do all that and now I see her as a hands-on mother, it's so amazing," he said.

Talking about the couple's friendly equation with his colleagues Deshmukh says that they are a friendly couple and that helps them go a long way.

"I am glad that our personal equations with people from the industry are happy equations. I firmly believe that if your friendship has no agenda, then it's pure friendship and that's what I maintain. I never discuss work with my friends. I think friendships which are primarily based on work are bound to crack someday," he says.

As a husband, he is extremely supportive of his wife as she is of him, and Deshmukh says that's perhaps the reason they do not impose their choices on each other when it comes to work.

"We take each other's suggestions, but it has never happened where we've told each other that `you shouldn't do this film because of its genre'," he said while promoting his recent flick Great Grand Masti.
