“Mother, Homemaker, Actor, Entrepreneur, Fitness Enthusiast/Wellness Influencer & an Eternal Positive Thinker” – says Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s Instagram bio. There’s nothing in the world that this superwoman cannot do. From making everyone believe in ‘yoga se hi hoga’ and ‘swasth raho, mast raho’ to launching her books, The Great Indian Diet and The Diary Of A Domestic Diva and fitness app, ‘Shilpa Shetty’, she has time and again proved that there’s nothing in the world that a woman cannot do! Be it being a hands-on mommy, a doting wifey, a caring daughter, a loving sister or inspiring everyone by being a fitness freak, superb cook, super-successful author, glamorous judge, Shilpa Shetty Kundra is an exemplar of being a ‘superwoman’.
And do you know what soothes her when she is back home after a long tiring day of work? Well, it is her 7-year-old son, Viaan Raj Kundra. After all, what can be better than ‘hugs and cuddles’ from your little one after an exhausting day at work, right? Shilpa Shetty Kundra took to her Instagram and posted an oh-so-adorable picture with her son resting on her lap from their ‘home sweet home’, and wrote, "#homesweethome #mine #united" atop it.

In 2013, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Viaan Raj Kundra featured on the cover of Hello magazine, and in an interview for the same, the then-newbie mommy had talked about body shaming and her fitness struggles back then. Shilpa had said, "One day I had this scary moment when he started crawling at five months, and I wanted to pick him up, but I couldn’t stand up from my kneeling position. And that’s when it struck me, that my muscles weren’t strong anymore, and I had way too much weight on me. Now imagine when you’ve had an image as a fitness icon – pompous as it may sound – and you walk around 83 kilos, the pressure to lose weight is tremendous. You know there have been film song lyrics like Shilpa sa figure Bebo si ada, etc. People were sneering behind my back, challenging me to ever go back to who I was. People can be very, very mean about such things… particularly if you want to head back into the limelight. Just look at the way they were hounding Ash! But c’mon, stars are human too!”
Initially, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra were very protective of their son, Viaan Raj Kundra and kept him guarded from the media. Speaking about the same, Shilpa had admitted, “Sooner or later, people will see him. I just wanted him to reach the one-year mark. Recently he made his debut in an IPL bib I designed for him; I wanted to take him to Jaipur for his first match as everybody wanted to see him.. you know the players, the staff… I brought him out for a night match as it was a pleasant 26 degrees Celsius, and he actually had a good time. He got to see so many people, screaming, excited. It was all fascinating for him.” (Also Read: Chhavi Mittal Reveals A Secret About Losing Post-Pregnancy Weight, Asks Mommies To Be On Their Feet)
