Sameera Reddy who recently gave birth is turning out to be quite an inspiration for all the moms-to-be
A while back, Sameera Reddy blew the internet with her underwater maternity shoot. The images’ confidence and beauty were undoubtedly infectious. And the baby that was the focus of her shoot, is here! The actress shared the newborn’s image on her Instagram handle. She welcomed her baby girl with a heartfelt message, “Our little angel came this morning 🌸My Baby girl! Thank you for all the love and blessings ❤️”
But the journey till here was not a straight road. It was very recently when Sameera revealed that she felt abandoned by the industry when she decided to take a sabbatical. When an entertainment portal asked her about this, the actress hilariously admitted that she thought she was rude when she said that, “I abandoned the industry”, she said.
Talking about her fight against postnatal depression, she said, “What happened during my first pregnancy was that I took a lot of hormones. I had problems with my pregnancy and I was bed-ridden. I had tonnes of issues but it was my mental state that consumed me. I felt like I failed at myself. I let my body go. I touched a 102kg, my face was so fat and it was the horror that somebody will look at me. And they did like I have had people say, ‘is that Sameera Reddy?’ but I said I was a good mother because even if I went to the bathroom and cried, Hans (his son) never saw it. I always came out and was top notch with him. I was the best wife that I could be to my husband, but internally there was another story going on.”
Sameera Reddy says, “Not the industry but I abandoned them; couldn’t keep up with the lifestyle”
“I would like to rephrase that [the statement]; it is rude to say that they abandoned me. I will take my statement back and say that in fact, I abandoned them. I feel somewhere there were two things that happened; firstly, I couldn’t keep up with the lifestyle, parties, we all know how it is here… one whole group and people hanging in there and chaato that group only. It is a game. There are few people who have been still there for me like Shilpa Shetty and family, who still call and inquire. Others vanished but now everyone is back, now I am invited everywhere (laughs). I just don’t go, I don’t have the bandwidth for it. Plus I have the shiest husband and when I met him, he thought I was Lara Dutta,” Sameera Reddy added in her latest statement.
