Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra are hands on parents to their kids, Viaan Raj Kundra and Samisha Shetty Kundra. Be it baking or Sunday binging, we have often seen how Shilpa engages her son with her. In February 2020, Viaan was promoted to an elder brother when Shilpa had welcomed a baby girl via surrogacy. And since then, we have witnessed how the family of four enjoys every moment with each other. But it was quite difficult for Shilpa to not let Viaan feel ignored after Samisha’s birth.
It was in February 2020, when Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Raj Kundra had given a sweet surprise to their fans when they had announced the arrival of their second child. Shilpa had shared a glimpse of her daughter's little hand on her Instagram handle. Along with it, she had written a cute post and had revealed the meaning of her baby's name. She had revealed that ''Sa'' in Sanskrit is "to have", and ''Misha'' in Russian stands for "someone like God". Hence, her little girl, Samisha's name personifies goddess Laxmi.
In an interview with Bollywood Bubble, Shilpa talked about the challenges she faced as a parent after the birth of Samisha. Revealing it was a difficult task for not letting Viaan feel ignored after the arrival of Samisha, Shilpa said, “It was really hard because my son is nearly nine and he is doing virtual school. To be a hands-on parent, with a newborn, not making him feel like he is being ignored, because he has always been the apple of my eye and all of ours, was a hard task.” For Shilpa, lockdown turned out to be a blessing as she could spend quality time with both her kids.
A few days back, Shilpa had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared a super cute IG story, wherein she had shared her son, Viaan's drawing. Viaan had drawn a comic version of his little sister, Samisha and his mommy, Shilpa. Atop the picture, Shilpa had written, "Viaan's drawing of his little sister and me comic book style #RKLaxman in the house."
On September 27, 2020, Shilpa had penned a cute note on her baby girl's first Daughter's Day. She had shared a picture with her baby girl, Samisha. Along with it, she had written a cute note and had revealed that it was her son, Viaan, who had prayed to have a sister in his life. Her caption could be read as "Who says Miracles don’t happen... Holding one in my hands now. Life is such a miracle, isn’t it? That’s the happiness I’m celebrating today on #DaughtersDay as I hold. Samisha our daughter. I definitely don’t need a day to celebrate her.. Cant thank God and the Universe enough for answering & manifesting our prayers, especially Viaan’s, so beautifully; will be eternally grateful. Don’t forget to give your daughters a tight hug today."
When Shilpa Shetty Kundra was invited on Neha Dhupia's show, No Filter Neha, she had opened up on embracing motherhood for the second time. The actress had shared that it is a cakewalk for her this time around. Shilpa had also cheered for herself and had talked about her gutsy decision of embracing parenthood for the second time at the age of 45. She had said, "I think yoga has made a big difference to what I used to be 10 years ago. I remember I did have a few meltdowns after Viaan because when you’re this first-time mom, it’s very daunting and it just hits you. So it was difficult the first time around but now I feel it’s like a cakewalk. #Guts to me, I am 45 and I’ve had another child. I’ll be 50 and my child is 5."
Shilpa is definitely a hands-on mother! What do you think? Let us know.
