Sameera Reddy Reveals She Disappeared From Limelight As She Weighed 102 Kg Post Birth Of First Child

'Pregnancy'- the very word comes with its own baggage of bliss, responsibility, uneasiness and bodily changes. When you are nurturing a life inside of you, there is a whole new surge of hormonal changes in your body. You eat for that little lub-dub inside you and your entire lifestyle revolves around the little baby that has taken over your belly for the next couple of months! All that a woman needs during her pregnancy phase is the support of her hubby and loved ones and the more you bestow, the better will it be. And Bollywood actress and second-time mommy-to-be, Sameera Reddy is receiving the same in bounty!

Sameera and her hubby, Akshai Varde became parents for the first time when their little ninja, Hans Varde was born to them on May 24, 2015. Theirs is a beautiful family of three (until now) and it was on April 20, 2019, when Sameera took to Instagram and posted a beautiful picture of the awesome-threesome Varde family, looking all excited to welcome their little one! Sharing an adorable family picture, Sameera wrote, “There was a time when success and a perfect body was my barometer of how happy I felt. Over time I realised how unstable it was. it’s just being here in the present appreciating the love I get which is now my definition of happiness. You Define your happy space.”

Sameera Reddy keeps on sharing pictures from her pregnancy phase and the pregnancy glow on her face is completely evident. The pre-pregnancy and post-pregnancy weight gain of a woman is a natural process, but women, especially stars are often fat-shamed for the same. Sharing a before and after picture of her, Sameera wrote, “I touched 102 Kgs in May 2015, the month Hans was born and I’m not scared to admit it. It took me to the deepest darkest places in my head. My confidence shattered. And I couldn’t lose the weight for a year after because I was too scared to even step out. I disappeared because I didn’t have the strength to be judged by the world after all the years of being glam and fit on screen. But the beautiful part is that you can only hit your lowest low to know you can absolutely climb out of that hole. It’s a fight. A hard one.”

Sameera Reddy talks about weight gain

Sameera Reddy’s post could be further read as “Took me 2 years more to lose the weight and to step out and face the world again but I wish I had the courage then. I did it naturally with no fad diets, no easy way out. Only with dedicated workout, yoga, pilates and strength training. It’s important for me to post this now because I need women to know the struggle is real. The mood swings, hormonal changes and losing your body shape can mess with your mind. It’s a superficial world and people can be hurtful if you don’t keep up. But the key is to be fearless. Only you can get out of that rut. It’s yours to change. Be brave. You can move mountains if you just will it. Special thanks to the best workout crew who also gave me the physical & emotional strength to get fit again @yogabypramila @adishroff @ivan_ultimatefitness @nyelakapadia & Kaizen Motafram my Pilates guru! love you guys.” She complemented her post witj an array of hastags like “#bollywood #mom #keepingitreal #weightlosstransformation #fattofit #pilates #postpregnancy #yoga #bodytransformation #fitness #fitnessmotivation #weightlossjourney #pregnancy #fitness.” (Also Read: Neil Nitin Mukesh's Daughter, Nurvi Looks Like A Doll In Pink, He Shares A Perfect Family Picture)

Giving it back to people who bodyshame pregnant women, Sameera Reddy had shared in an auto-expo show, “I have one question for these trolls. Where do you guys come from? Your mothers right? Was your mother very hot after you came out? I am just saying that it’s shameful because it is such a natural process and it’s so beautiful, it’s so amazing. And there are sexy ones like Kareena who just come out looking fully hot and then there are people like me who take time. It took me time with the first baby. Maybe it will take me time with the second baby. But what’s important is to accept yourself. And to all the trolls out there, say what you want guys. I think that I have a superpower. I am giving birth to a baby.”

Sameera Reddy had further revealed that she was very shy to come out in the open after her weight gain post her first pregnancy and had added, “I was like what people will expect, and how fast I will lose my weight. But now I feel different, cool, charming. I remember I used to cover up a lot in my first baby but now I am like bring it on. I can also be hotter and pregnant. The women in our culture have become very accepting of pregnant women and why not?”
