Every woman wishes to carry her child in her womb and bring the little one into this world after enjoying and cherishing the nine months of her pregnancy. But unfortunately, some face challenges and have a tough pregnancy to bring their little bundle of joy into the world, and some have to look out for alternative options to embrace motherhood. But when a woman becomes a mother and she holds her little one in her arms for the first time, it makes every struggle and pain worth. That smile of her little one makes her forget every pain. After suffering a couple of miscarriages due to an autoimmune disease called APLA, Shilpa Shetty Kundra tasted the joy of motherhood for the second time when she welcomed her baby girl, Samisha Shetty Kundra via surrogacy.

Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra had tried for four years before opting for surrogacy but even that option wasn’t a cakewalk for the couple as it was after three attempts when they had Samisha Shetty Kundra. When they had finally welcomed a baby girl completing their family, Shilpa and Raj’s happiness knew no bounds and it was in November, when finally, after keeping their daughter hidden from the media glare, Samisha was introduced to the world. The 45-year-old mommy was captured by the paparazzi with Samisha for the first time and it was indeed a sight to behold moment!
Following the trend of framing the hands and feet impressions of your little ones, Shilpa Shetty Kundra too, got the same for her children, Viaan Raj Kundra and Samisha Shetty Kundra. Preserving the beautiful memory for her little ones, that will surely be cherished by them forever, Shilpa posted a glimpse of the frames which had Viaan and Samisha’s pictures on their respective artworks. The baby picture of Viaan resembled a lot with his younger sister, Samisha and both had looked too adorable for words.
When Samisha Shetty Kundra had turned seven-month-old, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had given a glimpse of this precious gift that was made when her little girl was just seven days old. Shilpa had taken to her IG stories to share a picture of the frame, which had hand and feet impressions of her ‘precious miracle of love’, Samisha and thanking lifecasting artist, Bhavna Jasra, the doting mommy had written, “Thank you soooo much @bhavnajasra for this memorable piece that I will cherish for life… Jr SSK was 7 days old when you came and took her impressions. Now she’s completed 7 months. Can’t believe she was so tiny!” (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty Dancing Her Heart Out With Shamita Shetty Is Unmissable, Shows A Glimpse Of Sisterhood)

Posting a glimpse of her family, hubby, Raj Kundra, son, Viaan Raj Kundra and daughter, Samisha’s hands, Shilpa had written, "Your first milestone, my princess Samisha... Happy one month to you. Love you to the moon and back."
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had revealed why she had chosen surrogacy to welcome her second child, Samisha Shetty Kundra. Shilpa had said, "After Viaan, I did want to have another child for the longest time. But I suffered with an auto immune disease called APLA and that came into play every time I get pregnant. So I had a couple of miscarriages. So, it was a genuine issue. I didn't want Viaan to grow up as a single child, because I'm also one of two and I know how important it is to have a sibling. Coming from that thought, I did explore other ideas as well but that didn't pan out well. At a time when I wanted to adopt, I had put in my name and everything was underway. But then, the Christian missionary shut down because they had a tiff with Kara. I waited for nearly four years and then, I was so irritated and we decided to try the surrogacy route. We had Samisha after three attempts. I had honestly given up on the thought of another child."
