In an interview with ETimes, Neha, who is the mother of two children now, opened up about her second pregnancy and body positivity. She also shared a few parenting lessons and revealed that having two small kids is exciting as well as exhausting.
Talking in the interview, Neha opened up about a few hardships that she and Angad have faced and remarked that ‘these are exciting times’. She shared, "You know what you are getting but it gets twice as demanding. There are sleepless nights, you are pulling your head apart, there is a lot of time management but these are exciting times. We are kind of figuring it out. It is a bit demanding and we are trying to find a balance.... but ho jaayega!"
Furthermore, the actress also shared her feelings during the pregnancy and also shared a few lessons about body positivity. Sharing the details, she said, "I want to go back to my prenatal body which I had before my two kids (laughs). But the truth is that I am happy in the body that I have right now and we need to stop overthinking. I am in my postpartum body right now, there was someone in me and I am left like a bag but I feel so good to be able to give life and I speak for all mothers. Don’t put yourself through it, don’t overthink."
Earlier, in an interview with ETimes, Neha Dhupia had talked about getting back to work after six days of her son’s birth. She had said, “On the ninth day, after Mehr was born, I was back at work. This time around I returned to work on the sixth day after the delivery. Yes, I already did two shoots at home. With the little baby around it was must for the team to do their tests and only then they stepped into the house. I personally feel that if you want a break then it is important to have one as recovery is very important.”
Neha had further shared that it is important to give yourself time after childbirth. She had added, “Child birth takes a lot from you. It is not easy. So, my advice is you give yourself time to recover. It’s just that I am extremely fond of what I do and I wanted to get back to work as soon as possible that I started working. Options like work from home have proven to be such a blessing in today’s day and age. Work is holy to me. I have worked my way up and there’s a long way to go. I feel like my entire career has been about just being relevant at all times - neither being extremely successful nor being invisible.”
