According to the Cambridge dictionary, motherhood is the state of being a mother! While this definition seems a lot simpler, in reality, it is way too complicated. Being a mom means being on your toes 24*7 for your little one. There are no offs and you cannot even close your eyes because your little one needs you at any second of the day even when he is sleeping peacefully. Your days of enjoying a good night sleep, having alone time are all gone. And all moms will agree to it, including Bollywood actress and new momma, Kalki Koechlin.

On February 7, 2020, Kalki Koechlin had embraced parenthood with her beau, Guy Hershberg. The duo became proud parents of a baby girl. And On February 9, 2020, Kalki had taken to her Instagram handle and shared the footprints of her baby girl. Along with it, she had written, "Please welcome Sappho. Born 07/02/20. She just spent 9 months wrapped up like a momo in my uterus. Let's give her some space. Thank you for all the good wishes and positive energy pouring in. And respect to all the women who go through the intense and gruesome experience of birth, be it vaginal or c section, so many of whom are not given credit or support for the biggest challenges they face, but are expected to do it out of some kind of duty. The process takes a huge toll both psychological and physical and should have the backing of an entire community to truly heal. And a reminder to each and every human being of where we started, being formed from tiny molecules to conscious, beautiful beings. We are survivors of the biggest battle, the one for life and existence, and should treat ourselves and others with that love and respect. "Some say an army of horsemen or infantry, A fleet of ships is the fairest thing on the black earth, but I say It's what one loves." ~Sappho~ circa 600BC."
Since then, Kalki's Instagram feed is filled with a little girl, who is her daughter and holds a big piece of her heart. Kalki's pictures radiate her motherly glow and show how much she loves her baby. On February 25, 2020, Kalki took to her Instagram handle and shared a monochrome picture of hugging her baby while she sleeps peacefully in her arms. Along with the picture, Kalki wrote, "The past few weeks have really been a state of sleep-deprived bliss. Thanks for the perfect photo." Take a look at the picture below:
A few weeks ago, Kalki had shared a series of pictures with her beau, Guy and her little baby girl and the hospital staff, who had helped her deliver her baby via water birth. The actress had narrated her delivery story and had written, "So thankful to the whole team at Tulip Women's Care and to my to doctors @docsheetalsabharwal and @drrvpunjabi who simply refused to give up on me even when after 17 hours I was so tired I begged them to take the baby out any way they could and they said no, you've come this far and you're going to have your natural water birth, and an hour later Sappho was born. You guys are miracle workers!" (Also Read: Drashti Dhami Grooves On 'Chunari Chunari' With Hubby, Niraj Khemka For Her Nanad's Sangeet Ceremony)
When Kalki had appeared on Kareena Kapoor Khan's radio show, What Women Want, she had talked about how her family reacted on her pregnancy before tying the knot. The actress had shared that her family is quite unconventional in terms of it. They are not too traditional in the sense of having to be married and all of that. She had also stated that her mother was like, ‘Look, next time you marry, just make sure it’s for life.’ So she wasn’t in a big hurry.
In another interview with Miss Malini, Kalki had revealed the first thing she did when she got to know about her pregnancy. She had said, “I went and immediately bought another pregnancy test, just to make sure. But it was a very happy reaction. I think the last few years have been a situation where, I know I have wanted children, but either the times wasn’t right or I wasn’t with the right person. Or whatever, there was something! So all those things seemed to have come in place this time. Even though it wasn’t planned as we were thinking maybe in a year or two. But I think that’s the best thing about it. Now we are just diving right into it without too much pre-planning." (Don't Miss: Malang' Actor, Kunal Kemmu Reveals The Best Thing About Being His Wife, Soha Ali Khan's Husband)
