There is no doubt that Shilpa Shetty Kundra is a wellness influencer and an eternally grateful positive thinker as her Instagram bio reads. But she is also a doting mother, who has always stated that her kids are always her first priority. From acing her professional commitments to being a hands-on mommy, Shilpa is an inspiration to millions. She often shares glimpses of her mommy life and we are completely awestruck by the way she balances everything.
Almost after three years of their wedding, Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra’s wedding, the lovely couple had embraced parenthood and had welcomed their first child, Viaan Raj Kundra on May 21, 2012. In February 2020, Viaan was promoted to an elder brother when Shilpa had surprised all her fans with the announcement of embracing motherhood for the second time via surrogacy as she had welcomed her little angel, Samisha Shetty Kundra.
A few days back, Shilpa Shetty had revealed that her entire family had tested positive for COVID-19, but her reports are negative. On Mother’s Day, i.e., May 9, 2021, Shilpa got a priceless gift from her son, Viaan Raj Kundra, who made an adorable video for his mother. The video begins with a voice-over which said, “History is full of great heroes, but none quite as accomplished as you mom.” In the video, Shilpa was seen achieving a number of fleets all by her own. The doting mommy captioned the video as “Son Day Bingeing on what my son Viaan-Raj made me for mother’s day. Can’t stop beaming. Such a joy. This is the silver lining.”
In an interview with the Bombay Times, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had talked about giving a normal upbringing to Viaan Raj Kundra. When she was asked what a normal life for a celebrity kid is, she had stated, "I’m from non-film background and I come from a middle-class family, where our holidays were spent in Matheran, not London. Today, I am not apologetic about being able to take Viaan on a vacation to London. I make it a point that he understands and appreciates everything he has. Raj and I think he should not grow up with a sense of entitlement."
On May 7, 2021, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had informed her fans about her family, including her parents-in-law, Mr and Mrs Kundra, her mother, Sunanda Shetty, husband, Raj Kundra and their kids, Viaan Raj Kundra and Samisha Shetty Kundra being tested positive for COVID-19. In her note, Shilpa had written, "The last 10 days have been difficult for us as a family. My parents-in-law tested positive for COVID-19, followed by Samisha, Viaan-Raj, my Mom, and lastly, Raj. They've all been in isolation in their rooms at home as per the official guidelines and have been following the doctor's advice."
Revealing that she had tested negative for COVID-19, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had continued, "Two of our in-house staff members have also tested positive and they're being treated at a medical facility. By God's grace, everyone is on the road to recovery. My tests came back negative. All safety measures have been followed as per protocol and we're grateful to BMC & authorities for their prompt help & response. Thank you for all your love & support. Please continue to keep all of us in your prayers. Please mask up, sanitize, stay safe; and whether COVID positive or not…STILL stay POSITIVE, MENTALLY."
