Children are their parents’ pride since the very beginning. And once they enter the rat race of the world and start achieving goal after goals, only their parents know how proud they feel of their kids. And Sushmita Sen’s darling daughters, Renee Sen and Alisah Sen have made their mom proud of them ample of times. Whether it is Renee’s singing skills or Alisah’s confidence when she recites a Bengali poem, one look at Sushmita and that broad shining smile with happy tears in her eyes prove it all.

While today Sushmita is proud of her daughters, she herself made India proud with her amazing performances on ramp. To the unversed, she is the first Indian woman to be crowned as the Miss Universe in 1994. She had taken a bold step when she was only 25 in the year 2000 by adopting her elder baby girl, Renee and ten years later, in 2010, she had adopted another baby girl and named her Alisah Sen. The Bollywood diva is currently dating an aspiring model, Rohman Shawl, who has gelled up quite well her daughters. Sush (as her fans and loved ones call her) is quite active on social media and keeps sharing her regular life updates.
Yesterday, on September 24, 2019, she took to her official Instagram handle and shared a heart-warming post. Revealing that everyone says Renee looks like her and how Alisah reacts to it, Sush wrote, “This smile!!!! Alisah often hears & reads comments of some people saying, ‘Renee looks so much like me’ to which she says, yes, Renee didi may look like mamma but I am more like her!!! very very true Alisah Shona, in fact, you’re not only like me, you’re BETTER!! Incredible how a confident & gracious young soul can possess such wisdom, such that it has the power to transform, mindless insensitive chatter into a constructive, positive truth!! I couldn’t be prouder!!! #inspired learning from my #daughter #duggadugga I love you guys!!!!” Here are the pictures that she shared along with the post to prove the same:
On Alisah’s 9th birthday on August 28, 2018, the loving mother had the sweetest birthday message for her daughter. Sharing the following picture on her Instagram handle, Sushmita had written, “Happpyyyyyyy Birthday love of my life!!! Thank you for being such a #gift in our lives & for being the #rooh of my existence!!! what a divine #soul you are my Alisah maa!!! To your health, happiness & unshakable strength of goodness, your Renée didi & i are blessed to turn 9years old with you today!! To know you is to know #godslove in action!!! And to be YOUR mother is to know God’s kindest blessing!! We love you Shona!!! Keep smiling & growing, what a magical life awaits!!! Dugga Dugga”.

Later, the stunner, Sushmita had also posted a thank you message from Alisah, which could be read as, “Msg from Alisah “ Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes & blessings, Maa read me the msgs on Instagram & they made me feel very very special on my birthday” with love & pronams, Alisah (and needless to say her #Maa LOVES YOU GUYS!)”.
For those who don’t know, Sushmita had taken a conscious step of not working in films after adopting Alisah. Stating the reason behind the same, the former Miss Universe was quoted as saying, "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." She had further added, "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.” (Checkout: Karan Veer Mehra Reveals His 'It's Complicated' Relationship Status, Talks About Life After Divorce)
Sushmita had also shared that she used to see motherhood in a very different light when she had adopted Renee and with Alisah, her perspective again changed. In Sushmita’s own words, "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. I wanted to see her through her formative years. After she turns six, I can look back at working. If my career in films is done by then, so be it. I'll get into business or I'll do something else. But this, I cannot miss.” (Don't Miss: Tahira Kashyap Reveals That She Would Cry When Husband, Ayushmann Khurana Would Be Busy Shooting)
