Actress Shilpa Shetty had welcomed her daughter Samisha Shetty earlier this year, who was born through surrogacy!
Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty is a mother of two now. While she had a son named Viaan, she welcomed her daughter earlier this year, who has been named Samisha. She was born through surrogacy after the actress had a few miscarriages.
Talking to Pinkvilla, she explained, “After Viaan, I did want to have another child for the longest time. But I suffered from an auto immune disease called APLA and that came into play every time I get pregnant. So I had a couple of miscarriages so it was a genuine issue.”
Adding that Samisha was born after three attempts, Shilpa explained why she wanted another child. She didn’t want her son Viaan to grow up as a single child. Being one of two, she knows how important it is to have a sibling. “Coming from that thought, I did explore other ideas as well but that didn’t pan out well. At a time when I wanted to adopt, I had put in my name and everything was underway. But then, the Christian missionary shut down because they had a tiff with Kara. I waited for nearly four years and then, I was so irritated and we decided to try the surrogacy route,” she said.
