Also, to let everyone know, Sushmita is currently dating a model, Rohman Shawl, and if the rumours are to be believed, they might tie the knot anytime soon!
Now, Sushmita Sen took to her official Instagram handle and shared a few lovely videos of Alisah learning scuba diving. In the caption, Sush informed that Alisah had waited for this day for five long years and her first scuba diving lesson is a birthday gift for her. Her caption could be read as, “To the bravest 10-year-old I know & take pride in being her mother!! This is what I gifted her for her 10th birthday. Alisah was only 5 yrs old when Renee & I got certified as PADI Open Water Scuba Diver, and she was most annoyed that the minimum age for scuba diving was 10 yrs old. She waited 5 birthdays for this day!!! And of course, did her first scuba dive in the Maldives, just like her Maa & sister.” (Also Read: Geeta Phogat And Pawan Kumar Saroha Are Expecting First Child, 'KKK 8' Contestants Congratulate Them)

I kept diving into the ocean until I learned to dance my way back up!!!

It was on August 28, 2019, that Alisah had turned a year older and entered the double digits of her age as she had turned 10. The happiest mommy had posted a lovely solo picture of an all-smiling Alisah along with the caption that could be read as “We enter double digits!!!! Happppyyyyy 10th Birthday to the love of my life!!! May God bless this gift called ‘Alisah’ with the best of health, happiness & the courage to be more of herself!!! I love you my Shona Maa!!! We are 10!!!! yessssssss!!! #duggadugga I love you guys!!!!”
In a chat with the India Today, Sushmita had shared why she dropped out of films after adopting Alisah. The former Miss Universe clarified that she couldn’t be there for her elder daughter, Renee, but wanted to be with Alisah. She had also shared that her thought of looking towards motherhood changed when she had adopted Alisah. In the actress’ own words, "I know that people say that your best years are your youthful years where you can do films and you look younger etc. I asked myself, 'If I don't do films right now and I focus on this, will I regret it? And if I choose to not be with Alisah and go do films, which one would I regret more?' It was a no-brainer for me. It's not just seeing their first step or first word, that I missed out for Renee. It's their personality development, to witness who they are becoming. I did not sponsor a child. I became a mother. There is a very big difference.” (Do Check: Exclusive Pictures Of Shloka Mehta And Akash Ambani Doing Ganesh Aarti Along With Ambani Family)
Further revealing how she had looked at motherhood after her second daughter’s adoption, Sush had remarked, "I thought that I have to keep making money, keep paying the bills. My approach to motherhood with Renee was more like a father - the provider. I didn't have the time to be the provider and the nurturer because there was just so much work to do. I literally had her in a sack, with Chi Chi (Govinda) and David Dhawan holding her on the sets, and I'm giving my shot! I worked like that because I wanted to stay close to her, the best I could.”
Good job, Alisah! We are waiting for more of your scuba diving videos. What do you say, guys?
