8 Celebrity Moms in ‘Real-life Mom’ Role and their take on Parenting

No Reviews

Actresses in B-Town have always portrayed the essence of being a mother seamlessly on the silver screen. But when it comes to being a Real-life mom it is no movie-set! These tinkle town actresses have no vanity vans to hide into and no personal assistants to depend upon once they enter motherhood and have to experience the ups and downs of this journey like any normal woman would. Let’s have a look at what these actresses have to say about playing the quintessential character ‘Maa’ in real-life:

Kareena Kapoor-Khan

Mother to paparazzi favorite Taimur Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor Khan, has a very personal take on motherhood. Speaking to The Indian Express in an interview, she says she read a lot of books on motherhood, but she had learned most day by day taking care of her Taimur when he was young. She advises young mothers to make the most of their journeys and make it their very own, rather than being out of a chapter of a book on motherhood. This time around, she is looking forward to creating another unique journey with her soon-to-be-born second child. https://www.instagram.com/p/CELifiOJB2M/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Soha Ali Khan

In an interview given on NDTV, Soha says that when her daughter was born, she became her top priority. But then, she was left with no time for herself. She emphasizes on the fact a mother needs to carve out time for herself as well, especially in the formative years of the child when the child is more important than anyone else. A mother needs to find the right balance between managing the child, husband, and finding out self-time. https://www.instagram.com/p/CF6QURaBaIn/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Neha Dhupia

Dhupia says that motherhood has been extremely rewarding for her, and she takes a lot of satisfaction in waking up next to two people she loves selflessly. She would have never understood that someone else could be so much more important in her life if she had not been a mother. But despite being a mother, she emphasizes that a woman’s ambitions should never take a back seat. She has also jumped back on the TV screen, this time with Roadies, and is doing very well. https://www.instagram.com/p/CCYA6tlnPTW/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Kalki Koechlin

Kalki is in a happy zone, enjoying her motherhood, sharing pictures of her baby on social media. In an interview given on Mid-Day and later published on Asianet Newsable, she said that she didn’t experience any motherly feelings for the first two months of pregnancy, which felt like an alien invasion. But when she heard the baby’s heartbeat, she got excited. On being quizzed recently on the child being born ‘out of wedlock,’ she quickly pounced on this age-old thought process stating that the term ‘out of wedlock’ belongs to Shakespearean drama and isn’t a part of the millennial world. Marriage can be useful for bureaucracy, but it is not a sign of love. Only time and consistency can determine a healthy relationship. https://www.instagram.com/p/CCAuJR9h7oJ/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Shilpa Shetty

Shilpa Shetty recently became a mother at 45, and she says that to become a mother at 45 takes guts. During her first pregnancy, she was breastfeeding and feeling tired all the time, but this time around, she didn’t feel all those things as her daughter was born via surrogacy. Talking about having a second child, she had considered adoption, but it didn’t work out. After waiting for four years, she decided to try having a baby via surrogacy and had her daughter after three attempts, after almost being on the verge of giving up. https://www.instagram.com/p/CFoIwtTh4o5/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Lisa Haydon

Haydon says that having a child opened a new world and a way of life. She says that women today don’t have to choose between being a mother and having a career and can have the best of both worlds. She was filming a web series till she was five months pregnant and did the cover of Vogue India with Hrithik Roshan when she was four months pregnant. She believes that we are finally arriving at a place where women don’t need to have career apprehensions when thinking of starting a family, and they can have it all. https://www.instagram.com/p/B2Rog3kloyf/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Sameera Reddy

Sameer Reddy recently posted on Instagram posing a question to all mothers about how does one decide or know when to have a second child. She said that it is an extremely personal question to answer, and she got her answer by asking herself the question – whether she had the courage to do this all over again, sleepless nights, PPD, weight gain, etc. She says that she was better prepared this time around for her second child and would happily do it all over again. She further remarks, stating that love is split between her two children, and it is a tough balancing act, but she gets through it. She signed off by stating that it is a very personal decision and advises not to be influenced by anyone else; we have to work towards making this journey unique. https://www.instagram.com/p/CGCnZqangiF/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Twinkle Khanna

Twinkle’s take on motherhood based on her Instagram posts is a unique one; in one of her latest posts, she says that a simple situation of lazing around with her kids can turn into a war-zone in a matter of seconds, and being a mom involves quick transitions to adjust to such situations! Also, on the eve of her son’s 18th birthday, she remarks that the learning between her and her son has been a two-way process. She might have taught him studies and manners but has, in turn, learned optimism, kindness, and wonder from him. https://www.instagram.com/p/CB24Oy5j949/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link Each of these women might be celebrities, but all their experiences were as real as they could be for any mother.
