After nine months of anticipation, your little bundle of joy is finally in your arms and there can be no greater joy than this. The feeling of holding the little one for the first time cannot be described in words and since that moment, your life takes a 180-degree turn. To keep their baby healthy, women tend to gain weight during those nine months. But post the birth of the baby, the weight loss journey needs to be gradual for the mother to stay healthy, for herself and for the baby. And adhering to the same is Tu Laung Main Elaachi singer, Tulsi Kumar. (Also Read: Dipika Kakar Ibrahim And Shoaib Ibrahim Welcome A New Member In Their Family On Eid-Ul-Fitr [Pics])
Daughter of T-series fame Gulshan Kumar, Tulsi Kumar and her husband, Hitesh Ralhan embraced parenthood on December 24, 2017, with the arrival of their first child, a baby boy whom they lovingly named Shivaay Ralhan. After teasing her fans with the glimpses of the little one, Tulsi had finally delighted them with the first picture of him on May 13, 2018. Tulsi had captioned the mommy-son picture as, “Everyday is Special with u my baby Shivaay. A child gives birth to a mother #bestfeeling #motherhood #babyShivaay #blessed #myangel #happymothersdaytomefromumycutie”.
After 17 months of delivering Shivaay, Tulsi Kumar has finally shredded those extra kilos and revealed that her journey had been a gradual one. Flaunting her ‘finally back in shape’ look, Tulsi expressed her thoughts in the caption which stated, “There is nothing more fulfilling than being a mother. But it comes with its own challenges - One of them is carrying all the extra pounds. Feels amazing to finally be back in shape after almost one and a half year of my son Shivaay’s birth. The journey of shedding weight has been a slow and gradual one for me as I went through a C -Section but a regular exercise regime, determination and patience make you win over everything and anything. To all new mommies out there, If I Can, U all surely Can. My motherhood inspired me to do this. #ConquerYourFears #NothingIsImpossible #tulsikumar”.
On December 24, 2018, Tulsi Kumar and Hitesh Ralhan had celebrated their little munchkin, Shivaay’s first birthday and it was a Disneyland themed bash. Sharing pictures from the birthday party, Tulsi had written a heartfelt message for her baby boy which could be read as, “A very happy first Birthday to my Angel Shivaay Thank u my Son for introducing me to this beautiful Selfless feeling called Motherhood You complete Us May God always bless u with the best Love u sooo much my cutie #shivaay #1stBirthday #blessings”.

In an interview with the Free Press Journal, Tulsi Kumar had thrown some light on how challenging it is for a woman to balance career and her baby. She had said, “You have to multitask. Being a mom is the most beautiful feeling and every person will agree with me because there is no feeling that can match up to going back to your son’s smiling face. My son for me is the most important person. But my career even after my marriage and baby, by God's grace, is going onwards and upwards.”
In an interview given to a leading media portal post giving birth, Tulsi Kumar had talked about her then-newborn son, Shivaay. Expressing her joy, she had remarked, “It is a great feeling that I am experiencing. One will experience it only when she is going through. I don’t know how but these motherly things just come to you naturally.” She had further added, “As the baby enters our life, so many things change with it overnight. Being a mother is a lovely feeling and I am enjoying every bit of it. It is a new process and my new beginning with the baby. There are yet a lot of things for me to learn.”
While there are many firsts for a parent when their child is born, Tulsi Kumar too, experienced them with Shivaay and had shared with her fans in an interview, “When I first heard him cry, I had tears in my eyes. I felt mixed emotions when I heard his cry and it is difficult for me to explain. When I first held him, it was an amazing feeling.” (Also Read: Mira Kapoor Posts Misha Kapoor's Reaction When Zain Kapoor Pinched Her, Shares Their Cute Banter)
