On International Mother’s Day on Sunday, we look at some of the most adorable pictures of these young Bollywood mothers with their munchkins and what they said about their mother.
Anushka Sharma and husband Virat Kohli assumed parenthood on January 11 with the birth of their daughter Vamika. Anushka has brought pregnancy and work commitments under one roof. Speaking of being a new mom, she’d said on social media, “We’ve lived together with love, presence, and gratitude as a way of life, but this little one, Vamika, took it to a whole new level! Tears, laughter, worry, bliss – emotions that were sometimes experienced within minutes! Sleep is difficult to pin down, but our hearts are so full … Thank you all for your wishes, prayers and good energies. “Before that, she had said in another post:” Nothing is more real and humble than to experience the creation of life in you. If this is out of your control then what is it really? “
Bollywood actor Neha Dhupia, who is also a mentor on MTV Roadies, set out to fight the guilt of a working mother. The Devi actress, who worked during pregnancy and after delivery, told PTI, “It feels great, but at first all you feel is guilt like you’ve never known before. You constantly feel: “Oh my god, what is my child doing?” When you are with your child, you act like I have to finish work because I’m a workaholic. “
She added, “There are constant reminders you give yourself that just because you go to work doesn’t mean you love your child any less. A mother who chooses to be home after giving birth is just as beautiful as the mother who chooses to work. “

We spend so much time with our kids and I feel blessed. Even though we are working … we did a great job in our time management to make sure we are there during waking hours. When they sleep or nap, we try to finish our work or get it done as much as possible. When I have long schedules, I bring the guys with me and then Nisha comes on the weekend. So we spend a lot of time with our children, ”said Leone in an interview.
