In an interview with the Indian Express, Dia Mirza talked about embracing motherhood for the first time. Her son, Avyaan Azaad Rekhi had to be kept in the nursery due to his health conditions when he was born, and it was a challenging time for Dia. Talking about the same, Dia shared that she thanks God everyday for making her a mother and added:

"He is a little warrior. He has been through so much but he is filled with so much love and grace and I learn so much from that child everyday. I am just filled with immense gratitude that he is healthy and that he is safe and everything is okay. I think that challenges like these prepare us to handle life better and I am just happy that it is behind us, that he is okay, and we are all okay. I don’t sleep before saying a thank you to everybody and just being so grateful for having him and for the fact that he is okay."


When Dia had got married to her hubby, Vaibhav Rekhi, she had become a step-mother to Samaira Rekhi. Later, Dia had embraced motherhood with the arrival of her son, Avyaan in her life. When the actress was asked if she faced any problems while forming a bond with her step-daughter, Samaira, Dia said that it has been a smooth journey for her. She shared:

"It was seamless. I’ve always been extremely maternal. I’ve been maternal with my friends, with my colleagues, with friends’ children. I was exactly like that with Samaira as well. But with her, I feel like, I have and I continue to let her take the lead in our relationship, and I follow. What I mean when I say that is that I am always there for her, she knows that. I always say that we are friends first and whenever she needs me as a parent."

Further in the interview, Dia Mirza shared that she feels that she is very fortunate to have a step-daughter like Samaira, who is wonderful. Dia added that she never lets her kids, Avyaan and Samaira read fairy tales and revealed that Samaira has saved her number as ‘not the wicked step mother yet’. In her words:

"I am very fortunate that I have become a parent to a child who is so open and so receptive and so wonderful. Don’t try and be someone else for the child, be yourself and the child will value that and appreciate that. Any human being would. It also helps if your children don’t read fairy tales, because the concept of a wicked step-father or a wicked step-mother, all these concepts come from those stories and thankfully I never read them and I make sure my kids don’t either. And, funnily enough, Samaira has my number saved as ‘not the wicked step mother yet’."


For the unversed, Dia was blessed with her baby boy on May 14, 2021, whom she and her hubby, Vaibhav had named Ayaan Azaad Rekhi.
