Sometime back, Saumya spoke to The Times of India about embracing parenthood and was quoted as saying, “I am glad to declare I am pregnant. There has been a lot of speculation about that since a long time. Probably the news came before I even planned it. Things just fell into place and I am glad that I am going to have a baby. I am grateful to God. Thanks for your wishes.”
Revealing if she will work after her pregnancy, Saumya was quoted as saying, “I know there will be a lot of questions about my work plan, but there is a place and right time for those answers, right now it is about celebrating and taking all your good wishes for me. Of course, I plan to continue working and acting as long as I live. Hate to give this explanation though, I don’t think being a mother makes any woman hold back her passion, dream or work, it only empowers her more. What I can assure everyone is that I will keep on trying to the raise the bar for myself and hopefully to not disappoint the viewers with my work.”
Earlier when Saumya was missing from the shooting of her show, BJGPH, rumour mills were buzzing that it was due to the actress’s pregnancy. Before announcing her pregnancy, she had shared, “I am aware that rumors about me planning a family are doing the rounds. My reply is that I would love to have a baby. Motherhood is a beautiful experience and I surely don't want to miss out on that. In fact, if it happens, I will share it with everyone and enjoy it when the right time comes. As of now, I have no news to share. These things are in God's hands. Who are we to decide?"
She had further shared, “Also, my producers are so accommodating and sweet that they had once told me that even during pregnancy, I can continue doing the show, and later go on maternity leave. This is a wonderful change in the entertainment industry, and I really applaud that.” About Saumya’s desire to start a family back then, a source was quoted as sharing, “Saumya has been part of the show for the past three years. She now feels that it's time to move on and try out new things. Starting a family is also something she wants to focus on".
