Being a mother is the greatest gift, which God has bestowed on women. From a very young age, the motherly feeling starts overpowering a girl. From taking care of her 'barbies' like 'real babies', she grows up to nurture her own little bundle of joy. Every girl eagerly waits on hopping the journey of motherhood and she dreams of giving the best life to her little ones. And Bollywood and television's famous personality, Mandira Bedi has become an inspiration for many by becoming a mother again via adoption.

For those who don't know, Mandira Bedi is a perfect example of a strong woman, who takes life as it comes. Apart from being an extraordinary actress, she is also an accomplished fashion designer, a gorgeous wife, and a hands-on mommy to an eight-year-old son, Vir Kaushal. At the age of 48, she doesn't look a year older than twenty, thanks to her fitness regime and her enthusiastic personality. Recently, the actress' dream of becoming the mother of a daughter got true this year.
In October, Mandira had proudly shared her daughter's 'Gotcha announcement'. Recently, in an interview with the Mid-Day, Mandira opened up on striking the balance of work-life balance and diverting her time to her two kids, Vir and Tara. The actress shared that she is trying to give more time to her son, Vir, so that he doesn't get jealous. Mandira shared, "As a parent, I have had to strike a new balance. Vir told me the other day, "I feel jealous when you tell her, 'good girl'." So, I am now paying him more attention too. I decided to take a few courses on parenting, and they have given me new ways and tools to deal with the change in our lives. I play a game called Secret Box where you put 15 to 20 items in a box, put a timer on, and just be with the child. I do this with both my kids. Vir usually chooses the colour pencils and creates art. Tara goes for the play dough. Nobody else but the child and I are together at this time." (Also Read: TMKOC Fame, Tanuj Mahashabde Getting Married To Munmun Dutta In 2021? Actor Reveals The Truth)
Mandira also shared the first time when she had met her daughter at the airport and how her son, Vir had reacted. She said, "Vir and I were waiting for them at the airport. When she arrived there, I saw this tiny person, in a weird dress and plastic hat. On the flight to Mumbai, she sat on my lap and stared at Vir the whole time. Vir didn't seem like he was going to be warm towards her. We had started the adoption process when he was six, and he was excited back then. But now, at nine, he was a bit like, "I am not sure how I feel about this"."
Just like any other sibling duos', who have 'love-hate' bond, Vir and Tara also share a similar relationship. Mandira shared that when Vir is "at school" via online classes on weekdays, he hates her, but by the time the weekend comes, he is chasing her around the house. He sees her as a pesky sister.
On the occasion of Dussehra, Mandira Bedi and her hubby, Rraj Kaushal had shared the arrival of their Tara in their lives. The couple had shared a family picture and had introduced their daughter, Tara to the world. Alongside the picture, Mandira had written, “She has come to us Like a blessing from above, Our little girl, Tara. Four years and a bit With eyes that sparkle like stars Sister to her Vir Welcoming her home With open arms and pure love Grateful, thankful. blessed Tara Bedi Kaushal Became a part of our family on 28th July 2020.” And Rraj had written, “On this festive occasion of Dussehra we would like to introduce you to the newest member of our family Tara Bedi Kaushal. Finally, the family is complete #humdohamaredo.” (Don't Miss: Jwala Gutta's Boyfriend, Vishnu Vishal's Cute Note On His Ladylove's 'Big Day' Is Life Partner Goals)
