In an interview with Pinkvilla, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had revealed that she had taken a voluntarily break from her work when she had become a mother to her son, Viaan Kundra. Revealing her plan now, as she had embraced motherhood for the second time with the arrival of her daughter, Samisha Shetty Kundra, Shilpa had shared, "My mum was a working woman and she always said to me that we have the luxury of time whereas for her, it was a luxury. She couldn't afford to take out that much time because we had to make ends meet. We came from a middle class family who slowly climbed up and became an upper middle class family but they worked so hard to give us the best life. I just feel that we have choices as women. I was very clear I would be a hands on mom with my first child. I wanted to be with Viaan for the first 7 years. I intend to do that with Samisha too. That phase is the most important phase of a child's life. "
In 2019, Shilpa Shetty Kundra had revealed what soothes her when she is back home after a long tiring day of work. It’s her now-8-year-old son, Viaan Kundra.

Shilpa had taken to her IG handle to post an oh-so-adorable picture with her son, resting on her lap from their ‘home sweet home’, and had written, "#homesweethome #mine #united" atop it. It was Shilpa and Viaan’s tranquil smile that had all our heart! (Also Read: Viaan Kundra Playing With 3-Month-Old Sister Samisha Is A 'Sight To Behold' Moment For Shilpa Shetty)
