Motherhood is the best phase in every woman's life, from seeing her baby take the first step to cherish each and every moment spent with them, every moment is precious. Although it has its share of pains, however, the feeling of being called ‘mumma’ by the little one is out of the world feeling. Nobody can understand a child better than his/her mother. That is why mothers are called unique and nobody can take their place. They are the biggest reason for human existence and are one of the purest forms of love.

One such doting mother is actress, Sameera Reddy whose life revolves around her two little munchkins. Married to entrepreneur, Akshay Varde, Sameera had embraced motherhood for the first time on May 14, 2015, when she had welcomed her baby boy, Hans Varde. On July 12, 2019, Sameera had become a mother for the second time as she had welcomed a little princess and named her, Nyra. A doting wife and a caring mother, Sameera is a true inspiration to all the new mommies. As soon as she delivered Nyra, Sameera had resumed her work out and her amazing transformation had given major goals to new mothers.
On March 26, 2020, Sameera took to her Instagram handle and shared an emotional video about the mental health of kids amidst COVID-19 lockdown. In the video, Sameera was seen getting emotional as she talked about how she felt sad seeing children being exposed to the ongoing fear. Along with the video, she wrote a long caption that can be read as “Children are finding it hard to process this situation. It hurts me that Hans is exposed to the paranoia and fear. But this is the new normal. And imagine if we feel anxiety they feel it even more. Signs of deep anxiety in children -finding it hard to concentrate. -not sleeping, or waking in the night with bad dreams. -not eating properly. -quickly getting angry or irritable, and being out of control during outbursts. -constantly worrying or having negative thoughts. -feeling tense and fidgety, or using the toilet often. -always crying. -being clingy. -complaining of tummy aches and feeling unwell so please be aware and communicate with your child. It’s important. Keeping them busy is a good thing but talking to them and being honest about the situation is recommended. Make them feel safe. Lots of hugs and lots of patience. #staysafe #stayhome #mentalhealth #children #lockdown .”

Sameera, while addressing her postpartum depression had revealed, “Back then, I didn’t even realise I was suffering postpartum. When I complained that I was emotional, moody and feeling very disconnected, I was told, that they were the pregnancy blues. I went with that and kept thinking something is wrong with me. But later, when I consulted a doctor and opened up about my negative thoughts and how I was often feeling extremely low, that was when I was told that I had postpartum depression. As I waited too long to open up and get a diagnosis, it took me almost a year to get out of it.” Sameera had also retorted that with time, her perception about her body changed and she was more prepared when she was expecting Nyra.
On February 14, 2020, Sameera had posted an adorable picture of her little Valentines, Hans and Nyra. The two had looked adorable as they posed for their mommy. Along with the picture, Sameera had written, “My Valentine babies… happy to see his Little sis again! And I’m thrilled to have the chaos back in the house! Can’t handle these father-son boys trips without us girls!!! #family #first #always #brother #sister #happyvalentinesday #mybabies #baby #love.” (Also Read: Surbhi Jyoti Reacts On Dating Her 'Naagin' Co-Star Pearl V Puri, Reveals The Relationship They Share)
