Shilpa Shetty, a mother of two, has never shied away from speaking her mind out when it comes to interviews. She has hardly ever spoken up about the troubles in her personal life, and always maintained a strong front for all her fans. She recently chatted with Pinkvilla and revealed a lot about how she got body-shamed after her pregnancy. Not only that, she even spoke up about suffering from miscarriages before opting for surrogacy.

Talking about the miscarriages, Shilpa said, “After Viaan, I did want to have another child for the longest time. But I suffered from an autoimmune 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. I didn’t want Viaan to grow up as a single child, because I’m also one of two and I know 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. We had Samisha after three attempts. I had honestly given up on the thought of another child.

Her son, Viaan was born on May 21, 2012. During pregnancy, every woman gains weight and post-pregnancy, it takes time for the mothers to get back into shape. When Shilpa was pregnant for the first time, she too gained a few kilos that made her the victim of body-shaming. She spoke about the same as well as doing the said interview.

Shilpa made this revelation saying, “I had put on 32 kilos during my pregnancy. Ideally, I thought I’d gain around 15 kilos but I had double that weight. And after delivering Viaan, I put on two more kilos which were ridiculous. I don’t know how I did that. So I remember this one incident when I went out with Raj for dinner for the first time after having Viaan. We walked in and there was this group of women at a kitty sitting and smirking at me. I could hear them say, “Is that Shilpa Shetty? She still has weight!” It was absolutely heartless.

Questioning the mentality of the people, she said, “Who are these people anyway? I would also like to see how they look when they get pregnant. It’s easy to comment.

Shilpa said that it was her mom who encouraged her to shed the extra kilos she had put on.“My mother is known for her straight talk. One day, she just asked me, “When are you planning to lose the weight?” said Shilpa.

We salute you, Shilpa, for being such open and straightforward about your personal life.
