Daughters fill colour in our boring life, they brighten up our moods and become the reason behind our big smiles. They grow up to be our best friend and perfect mirror-image of her mother. But looks like, Bollywood actress, Lisa Ray's six-month-old daughter has already started copying her mother.

But before we take you further into the story, let us take a look back at the time when Lisa was blessed with two gorgeous little angels. It was September 2018 when the Indo-Canadian actress had announced that she had become a mother to twins Sufi and Soleil, who were born via surrogacy. The actress had revealed how hard she tried on becoming a mother, and when she thought her dream can turn into reality, India banned the commercial surrogacy. And in the end, she made her dream true and became a mother in her mid-40's.
Lisa is a doting mommy and her Instagram feed is a perfect proof of it. Recently, she shared a gorgeous picture of her little girl wearing a beautiful red saree which is a gift from her sister, Aakanksha Agarwal. She captioned the picture as, "Here’s the other thing that happens when one is quarantined at home with the (gulp) mumps and the babies are with @dipikablacklist and I am forbidden to get close to them but privy to a private trial of the sweetest saris sent all the way from Kolkata by my khub mishti little sister @aakanksha.a You both have turned my mamoni into a teensy-weensy mashima #thoothoo #mamoni #mishti #SouffleSwag."
We remember how once in an interview with The Times of India, Lisa had shared her struggles of being a mother. She had revealed, "Every new phase of life challenges my openness and the ability to adapt with each new experience. It has been an arduous and interesting experience. Having been diagnosed with multiple myeloma (a form of blood cancer) in 2009, which requires me to be on a lifelong dose of medication, pre-empted the possibility for me to carry children myself."

She had further added, "Fortunately, technology has progressed where there are choices and new possibilities for having children. My husband and I decided to pursue surrogacy. India was the obvious choice. We consulted a reputed fertility doctor, but a week before we could begin, India outlawed commercial surrogacy. We were crushed. While I understand the pressing need to regulate the industry and prevent exploitation of surrogate mothers, it was a case of literally throwing out the baby with the bath water. But, I was determined. My husband and I were advised we could continue the process in India and that there were ‘ways’. But we did not want to bring our children into the world under a cloud of uncertainty."
In the same interview, Lisa narrated how she settled in Georgia where surrogacy was legal, "We hired an agency to help, had an unsuccessful attempt in Mexico, and spent a lot of money, emotional resources and sleepless nights. But as a cancer survivor, I firmly believe in overcoming the odds. And with my husband and a few close friends’ support, we hoped for the best. Finally, we settled on Georgia, where the surrogacy process is legal, transparent, regulated and overall beneficial for both sides. We relocated to Tbilisi for a few months for the birth."
