The year 2020 will always be remembered for the biggest uncertainty. The global pandemic COVID-19 has ruined many lives. People are left jobless, stepping out of the house makes us paranoid, and being confined into the four walls of our home brings a sense of anxiety and what not. But the most affected are the little ones as the concept of getting out and playing with friends is an alienated subject for them now. The new mommies, who have given birth during the lockdown are helpless as taking their little one out seems like a distant dream.

Television actress, Shikha Singh is going through all these emotions as she had embraced motherhood and had welcomed a little angel in her life. Shikha Singh is famous for her role of ‘Alaya’ in the daily soap, Kumkum Bhagya. Shikha had married her pilot boyfriend, Karan after dating him for some time. And after four years of marital bliss, the couple had embraced parenthood. On June 16, 2020, Shikha and Karan were blessed with a baby girl whom they have lovingly named Alayna Singh Shah.
On October 14, 2020, Shikha took to her IG handle and shared pictures of Alayna’s first day out to the garden. In the pictures, the little munchkin looked happy as she enjoyed her first outing and was seen giggling with her parents. Along with the pictures, Shikha wrote an emotional note for all the new-borns and their mother. Her note can be read as “And for the 1st time we got to know Grass is greener on the other side. Alayna’s 1st day out to the garden. My heart goes out to all the babies born in this lockdown & their moms as stepping out, meeting people, being on grass, watching birds all are part of the developmental growth of the new born/infant. It’s difficult right now but hang in there. Try finding times when none is around & take your baby for a 10 min stroll maybe. Find a safe zone & safe space and be safe.”
On August 18, 2020, when Alayna had completed two months, Shikha had taken to her IG handle and had shared an adorable picture of Alayna wherein the doting mommy, Shikha was seen admiring the little princess. Along with the picture, Shikha had written, “The way u look at me makes me wonder, what did I do to have you in my life. U are heavenly, angelic, dramatic & somewhat forever hungry. But I still love every bit of you & will always keep on loving you till my last breath & beyond.” Posting the same picture on baby Alayna’s IG page, Shikha had written, “Everyone keeps asking “Who’s your mommy” Well folks, she’s my mommy.” (Also Read: Esha And Ahana Looked Like Twins In Their Unseen Childhood Picture With Hema Malini And Dharmendra)
