For those who don’t know, Sameera is already a mother to a four-year-old son. The actress tied the knot with Akshai Varde on the year 2014 and on May 24, 2014, they welcomed Hans into their lives
Recently, Sameera took to Instagram for a Q/A session with her Instafam. She was asked a series of questions and in amidst of it, she revealed that she was into depression after the birth of her first baby. When she was asked, “Your biggest failure and how did you handle it? ”She replied, “My biggest failure was giving in to depression after my firstborn. I didn’t fight it. It took me too long to realise I felt bad about my body and my image. I hid from the world and was worried about what people would think of me. I took therapy and homoeopathy. I will never let that happen again.”
Another fan asked, “How do you stay positive. That’s a really great thing which you have.”To which she replied, “I really work hard at it. Sometimes I cry it out. I let go of fear, negative thoughts when they come. I always am in grace. I choose not to see what I don’t have, I only give thanks for what I have.”
Another one asked her, “How to stay body positive. I try to be busy to be positive, but eventually, people bring me down? She had replied, “The fact that you are letting people bring you down needs to change. You are only in control of your reaction you cannot change people. Most important is to own your flaws. Love yourself now and make body goals to achieve in your own timeframe.”
Sameera had earlier slammed trollers who targeted Kareena Kapoor Khan for being a working mother. She took to her Instagram and wrote, “Recently I was chatting a bunch of moms who were judging Kareena for being a Career mom. I said something then and I reiterate on this post. Working moms are badass babes! They juggle it all and that comes from a space of strength. They also have their share of guilt that they deal with. I’ve seen Kareena has an intense bond with her son. Our kids go to the same school and one can see how he adores her and is so connected to her and it comes across in every interaction I’ve had with them.”
Her post could be further read as “I’ve seen loads of stay at home moms who have nannies too and choose to have a very active social life so who is judging anyone here. It’s so easy to classify but let’s rethink the definition of the perfect mother. There is no definition because no mom is perfect including me.”
Sameera Reddy had earlier lashed out at trolls who targeted her for her pregnancy weight gain and gave them a sassy reply. She had said, “I have one question for these trolls. Where do you guys come from? Your mothers, right? Was your mother very hot after you came out? I am just saying that it’s shameful because it is such a natural process and it’s so beautiful, it’s so amazing”.
She had further added, “And there are sexy ones like Kareena who just come out looking fully hot and then there are people like me who take time. It took me time with the first baby. Maybe it will take me time with the second baby. But what’s important is to accept yourself. And to all the trolls out there, say what you want guys. I think that I have a superpower. I am giving birth to a baby.”
Sameera Reddy, you are an inspiration to many. More power to you girl!
