Maine Dil Tujhko Diya, De Dana Dan, Red Alert: The War Within, Aakrosh, No Entry actress, Sameera Reddy is high on her personal life these days. The reason behind her cheerfulness is that she is expecting her second baby in 2019. For the ones who have been living under the rocks, Sameera is already a mother to a four-year-old son, Hans Varde. The actress got married to Akshai Varde in the year 2014 and on May 24, 2015, they had welcomed Hans into their lives.

Sameera has been very active on social media during her second pregnancy. Recently, she tried the ‘Ask Me Anything’ session on her Instagram handle wherein she shared a lot of things. When one of her fans questioned her, “Your biggest failure and how did you handle it?” To this, Sameera replied, “My biggest failure was giving in to depression after my first born. I didn’t fight it. It took me too long to realise I felt bad about my body and my image. I hid from the world and was worried about what people would think of me. I took therapy and homeopathy. I will never let that happen again.”

Another fan of hers asked, “How do you stay positive. That’s a really great thing which you have.” To this, the second-time mommy-to-be answered, “I really work hard at it. Sometimes I cry it out. I let go of fear, negative thoughts when they come. I always am in grace. I choose not to see what I don’t have, I only give thanks for what I have.” (Also Read: 'Partner' Actress Aarti Chabria Looked Like A Diva In All-Red Lehenga At Her Secret Wedding (Pics))

Another one asked her, “How to stay body positive. I try to be busy to be positive, but eventually people bring me down?” Sameera answered beautifully to this question by writing, “The fact that you are letting people bring you down needs to change. You are only in control of your reaction you cannot change people. Most important is to own your flaws. Love yourself now and make body goals to achieve in your own timeframe.”

For the ones who don’t know, Sameera Reddy had lashed out at the moms who had judged Kareena Kapoor Khan for being a working mother. Sameera had taken to her Instagram handle and wrote, “Recently I was chatting a bunch of moms who were judging Kareena for being a Career mom. I said something then and I reiterate on this post. Working moms are badass babes! They juggle it all and that comes from a space of strength. They also have their share of guilt that they deal with. I’ve seen Kareena has an intense bond with her son. Our kids go to the same school and one can see how he adores her and is so connected to her and it comes across in every interaction I’ve had with them.” (Checkout: Raveena Tandon Reacts On Akshay Kumar Recreating 'Tip Tip Barsa Paani', After He Gets Trolled For It)

Her post could further be read as, “I’ve seen loads of stay at home moms who have nannies too and choose to have a very active social life so who is judging anyone here. It’s so easy to classify but let’s rethink the definition of the perfect mother. There is no definition because no mom is perfect including me.”

Sameera is one of those actresses who was targeted online for her pregnancy weight gain. Nonetheless, she had given a kickass reply, citing an example of Kareena yet again. Bashing the tolls, she had remarked, “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.”

For the ones who don’t know, Sameera didn’t announce her pregnancy news, rather an online portal SpotboyE got this scoop and later confirmed it from her. Talking to them, Sameera had confirmed by saying, “Gosh! How did you know? I have not told a soul yet. But now that you have called, yes, let me tell you the truth that I’m carrying for the second time. I’m four months pregnant. This is a planned baby. It is one of the reasons why I have refused quite a bit of work in the recent past. Akshai and I wanted to have the second baby in 2019. My due date is in July.” (Do Check: Garima Jain Leaves Her TV Serial After Breakup With Vivian Dsena, Feels Uncomfortable Around Him)

In the same interaction, she had also revealed she loves flaunting her baby bump, “In my first pregnancy, I was very shy and thought about a lot of things but now I feel it's very different. I remember I used to cover up a lot during the first pregnancy now I'm like bring it on. I can also be hot when I'm pregnant. So, it's just a matter of mindset.”

Sameera Reddy, we wish you healthy and easy last days of pregnancy!
