Miss India, Celina Jaitly had made her Bollywood debut with the film, Janasheen in 2003. She had left her professional career for her marriage with hotelier, Peter Haag in 2011. Celina and Peter have been living their ‘happily ever after’ with their three musketeers, Viraaj Jaitly Haag, Winston Jaitly Haag and Arthur Jaitly Haag. However, in the journey of her ‘happily ever after’, Celina has had her fair share of unhappy and depressed moments, but the actress proved that nothing can break her.
Celina’s second pregnancy had come as a roller coaster ride for her with her father passing away, one of her twin boys, Shamsher passing away and the other one being on an incubator for two months. It was 6 months after the birth of her youngest son, Arthur that Celina had introduced him to the world. Sharing the first-ever picture of the youngest Jaitly-Haag, Celina had written, “Meet little ARTHUR JAITLY HAAG, rascal no 3 making his debut on social media from our very own Indo-Austrian home Production. Lol!! This is what date night looks like when you have 3 kids. The date night is usually in the afternoon “with” @arthurjhaag nestled cosily between @haag.peter n myself whilst older Pra jee’s @winstonjhaag and @viraajjhaag are away at a birthday party. Lol.”
On the occasion of Mother’s Day, Celina shared a collage of both her twin pregnancies and shared how it is unique and unusual to conceive twins in a row. She wrote, “While both my spontaneous twin pregnancies were the most blessed, having two sets of twins in a row, apparently defying 700,000-to-one odds was not easy. I still remember the look on my husband @haag.peter face when our dearest Dr Braithwhite told us that we had conceived twins again in the 2nd pregnancy as well which was very unique and unusual, a one in 700-000 chance. This is a picture of both my pregnancies the first one with @winstonjhaag & @viraajjhaag and the second with @arthurjhaag & Shamsher.”
Celina then narrated how in both her pregnancies, she was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and how her father’s death had led to her losing walking ability during her second pregnancy. She added, “I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes in both my pregnancies due to twin baby hormones, I had to really watch what I ate and went through a extremely strict restrictions throughout both pregnancies. Due to my fathers loss in my second twin pregnancy I literally lost the ability to walk due to the shock and had to be pushed on a wheelchair by my husband Peter. Being tiny my bones were affected and the babies pressed on my heart so breathing was great difficulty. Facing the loss of baby Shamsher to a hypo plastic heart, to @arthurjhaag ending up in an incubator for 3 months as well as my mothers sudden passing following all this lead me to believe that it was “Motherhood” that made me realise the strength I never thought I had or was capable of.”
She concluded her note with how it was her motherhood that gave her the courage to go on. She wrote, “Makes me think often of all the sacrifices my own mother ( Dr Meeta Jaitly) did as an infantry officers wife bringing up two kids most of her life by herself, making sure we turned out the way we did. I also believe Motherhood has no gender I truly believe it is how you describe the very powerful strength, resilience and unconditional love that gives a child the courage to grow. I am so grateful I have the opportunity to experience this power, and to have also been on the receiving end of it too in all my formative years. Happy Mother’s Day to all who vow to love, nurture and care.”
Celina is indeed a special person as she stood strong even after all the unusual experiences she faced!
