It is easier for someone to sit behind the screen and write whatever comes in their mind about celebs and their personal life. From being body-shamed to gaining post-pregnancy weight, Bollywood divas face a lot of backlash from the trolls and sometimes it gets over the board for them to keep mum. And the recent one to join the bandwagon of celebs who give a befitting reply to the trolls is Celina Jaitly. Celina, who is a mother of 3 lovely kids has been enjoying her life with her happy family, but do you know that she had received loose talks about giving birth to her first set of twins?

Celina Jaitly had tied the knot with Peter Haag on September 23, 2010, and are blessed with 3 lovely kids, Winston Haag, Viraaj Haag and Arthur Jaitly Haag and she is managing her professional and personal life beautifully. When Celina had tied the knot with Peter, there were rumours that the reason behind their wedding was the actress' pregnancy. The internet was flooded with news that her first twins were conceived before her wedding and she had received a lot of backlash due to the same. Recently, in an interview with SpotboyE, Celina revealed how she dealt with the loose talk and how she manages her work and kids.
Talking about receiving loose talks, Celina Jaitly stated, “There are some overconfident proclaims of the fact that Peter and I got married only because I became pregnant. The depiction of our children was conceived before marriage doing rounds on the internet through some very strong media platforms is absolutely baseless and irresponsible. They could have checked their facts with the Austrian marriage courts before jumping to such an irresponsible conclusion and the worst part of it is that they continue to do so even 9 years after our marriage. These rumours expose our growing kids to harmful content on-screen and bullying too in some cases.”
She further revealed, “I have decided to raise my voice against this malicious circulation of information as our kids must be protected from images and information that could have a lasting and detrimental impact on them. The media has an important role to play in protecting and promoting the rights of the child and by continuously circulating such terribly wrong information about their very conception, they are playing an important part in causing the children great emotional and possibly physical trauma too.”
Celina Jaitly also cleared when she decided to have kids and said that she has been enjoying the limelight since she was 15. When her husband, Peter came in her life, he was her prince charming and she knew that if she wants to settle in life then it has to be with him. She further stated that she and her husband both love kids and were eventually blessed with twins twice, Winston, Viraaj, Arthur and Shamsher.

Post-pregnancy, a woman’s body goes through a lot of changes and Celina was no different. During the interview, when she was asked how difficult was it to get back in shape, Celina replied, “Fitness to me is a lifestyle, it is everything from how much one sleeps to what one eats to how many steps does one take in a day or the perfect balance between weight training or resistance training because besides my own physical and mental wellbeing I have to be a perfect role model to my 3 sons. Having said that, pregnancy and post-pregnancy recovery is an experience unique to every individual and differs from women to women. Between social media, cultural influences and increased awareness about the guidelines, pregnant women and new moms should follow the judgment women face as they enter motherhood. I remember how much flak I received for posting a picture in a bikini and bathtub when I was pregnant with my second set of twins 1 1/2 years ago.”
Celina further added, “Some people were vicious enough to attribute our son’s death as well as my father’s death to the same. Because women today have their own individuality, the society at large feels all-too-comfortable passing judgments because the newfound expression of freedom is something people around us find it difficult to deal with. What they don’t realise is the last thing an overworked, sleep-deprived, overwhelmed, hormonal, healing new mother needs is to feel judged. What we all need is respect and lots of support.”
Leaving your kids home and going to work is not easy for mothers and Celina also feels the ‘mom guilt’ while doing so. When asked how she manages to strike a perfect balance between managing work and children, she said that like most working mothers, she also experiences immense mom guilt returning to a career that she had built for years. She continued by saying that if you are doing a job that makes you feel valued it would be a perfect cure for mom guilt as one becomes more confident. Celina stated that she sometimes suffers a great deal of separation anxiety like all working mothers. She concluded by saying that it is important as career mom, that women find ways to be efficient in both worlds and that requires being able to come in terms with choices and focus on the priorities that are in the moment.
