Shilpa Shetty's daughter Samisha Shetty, who was born on February 15 this year through surrogacy, has completed 40 days. The Super Dancer judge is ecstatic about the same but shared with her fans that she cannot step out of the house and take her daughter to a temple for blessings due to lockdown.
However, the actress did not let this darken her spirits and posted a photo with her husband, daughter and son in the frame, she said that she is quite thankful for having a healthy family by her side. For the next 20 days, the actress plans to document things she is grateful for on a daily basis and urged her fans to do the same.
The actress wrote, "Samisha Shetty Kundra completes 40 days today. The first milestone for a mother and child, revered in Hinduism. Ideally, as a ritual we would have “stepped out of the house for the FIRST” time and taken her to a temple for blessings, but as things stand today don’t have that option. Hence, will seek blessings at our mandir at home.
It only makes me realise that there are so many other things we should be grateful for even if some things don’t go as per plan. So, for the next 20 days, I’m going to document one thing that I’m grateful for EVERY DAY."
She added, "Starting with TODAY, I’m so grateful for just having a healthy family by my side. Let’s use this time to thank the universe for all the wonderful things and daily manifest positivity in our lives. Do join me in this exercise stating what YOU are grateful for."
After there birth of her babygirl, Shilpa had told the media
"Becoming a parent is a blessing, and to a girl is an even bigger blessing. Raj is a fabulous father, and together, we are hands-on parents. We were completely ready for this. The fact that it happened only means that Samisha was meant to come to us."
About her son's reaction, she revealed, "It’s his prayer that has manifested. For the last three years, he has gone to Shirdi with me and only asked for one thing from Sai Baba — a baby sister. I’m so emotional and I can’t believe it has actually happened."
