For a woman, there is no greater joy than seeing her little ones grow up and make her proud. While raising her children, a woman sacrifices a lot of things, her career and other things take a backseat and her child becomes her priority. She starts living her dream through her little ones and seeing them grow and achieve milestones, make her heart swell with pride. One such proud mother is former Miss Universe, Sushmita Sen, who dotes on her girls, Renee and Alisah.

Sushmita Sen is a motivation for millions. She had won millions of hearts with her enchanting smile. The gorgeousness had surprised everyone when at the mere age of 24, she had taken one of the boldest steps of her life by adopting a little angel and had named her Renee. And in the year 2010, she had adopted her second daughter, Alisah. Sushmita is known for living her life on her own terms and her decision of adoption had motivated many others. Sushmita is dating model, Rohman Shawl and like her, Rohman too shares an amazing bond with Renee and Alisah.
Sushmita Sen loves sharing pictures and videos of her family. On May 12, 2020, she took to her Instagram handle and shared a video of her beau, Rohman giving some fitness training to her daughters, Renee and Alisah. In the video, Alisah was seen trying some yoga postures and aerial moves while Rohman and Renee looked at the little one giving her best shot. Along with the video, Sushmita wrote, “My munchkin. Something to wake up to!!!”
Sushmita has always encouraged millions with her inspiring words. Sometime back, Sushmita had attended an event at Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI), Hyderabad where she had spoken about how adopting her two daughters, Renee and Alisah, was not an act of charity but a way to protect herself. Speaking about motherhood, the 43-year-old diva had shared that she might not be the biological mother of her daughters but she has given birth to them from the heart.

In a chat with India Today, Sushmita had shared why she dropped out of films after adopting Alisah. The former Miss Universe had 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 had 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.”
Further revealing how she had looked at motherhood after her second daughter’s adoption, Sushmita 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.” (Also Read: Navya Nanda Launches Her Healthcare Platform 'Aara Health', Rumored Beau, Meezaan Congratulates Her)
