In a recent interview Dr. Sid talks about the woman in his life and plans for the future.
Apart from your Mum and your sister, who is the other special woman in your life?There’s somebody who is actually responsible for a lot of the changes I’ve gone through as an individual. She’s a woman who makes me want to be better. She’s very interested in my career, my sense of style and fitness.
I owe a lot of the changes that are happening to me especially this year to her and the kind of attention that she’s given me.
That sounds sweet. How long have you been together?
About 8 months. We met under very “interesting” circumstances which I will not discuss.
The way you say “interesting” means it’s probably funny and I’m itching to hear it
Maybe when we’re getting married, I’d talk about it.
You know she is “the one” already?
What makes you say that and what qualities attracted you to her?
When I’m not with her, I constantly want to. I constantly try to make her proud of me in everything I do.
