In an interview with ETimes, Debina Bonnerjee talked about the struggle and hardships she went through to become a mother. When the actress was asked about failed IUIs and IVFs attempts, the actress shared that it was extremely painful for her to witness one failure after the other. Reflecting on how it was a heartbreaking and scary situation for her to see all her attempts going in vain, Debina shared:

"The fight to become a mother lasted five years. I failed five times during the process, which included three IUIs and two IVFs. I also tried alternative therapies, like acupuncture and flower therapy. I would cry all the time because I held myself responsible for the failure. The feeling of reaching a dead-end is devastating."

Going further in the interview, Debina Bonnerjee also admitted that back in the day, having a baby was like bidding farewell to your acting career. However, the actress also admitted that she also didn't want to have a baby at that time because before embracing motherhood, she wanted to find stability in her life. Calling it one of the reasons behind the delay in becoming a mother, Debina revealed:

"We got married in 2011 but back then, having a baby meant giving away my career. I also had apprehensions ki break liya toh career stake par aa jaayega. The plan was to find stability first before taking another step. I was part of a show and couldn't quit it midway. So that resulted in a further delay of about two years. Soon after that, I decided to pursue motherhood aggressively. But jab aap nahi chaahte ho tab bohot kuchh hota hai, aur jab chaahte ho tab nahi hota hai.”

In the same interview, Debina Bonnerjee also talked about the way her husband and actor, Gurmeet Choudhary had supported her during that tough time. Heaping immense praises on her darling husband, Debina added that Gurmeet always motivated her and boosted her confidence after every failed test. She said:

"My work, workouts, and having the right life partner kept me sane. It's not a solo journey. The responsibility of having a child shouldn't rest on just a woman's shoulders; it's on the couple. It's a joint journey. Every time, I faced failure, I would talk it out with my husband. Gurmeet was always positive and made me believe that it was our journey."
