Mumbai: Mother’s Day was celebrated in the UK on 19 March 2023. To mark the occasion, Anand Ahuja penned a long heartfelt note for his wife Sonam Kapoor. Taking to Instagram, Anand shared an unseen picture of Sonam holding baby Vayu and wrote, “I must admit, and Sonam can verify, that emotional/social awareness is not really my strength. As a result, it really taken.” I look back at what @sonamkapoor has done over the past 17 months (and actually longer than that) to truly understand the level of commitment and selflessness she goes through to ensure the best emotional and physical health for herself and her baby. What does it take to be a full time mom?
She added, “In an age when we’ve all become accustomed to the immediate reward system, committing to motherhood really means giving over and above that system. It has also given a daughter, a sister, and a wife (and girlfriend).” Has also re-emphasised her responsibilities as a parent. :P) As she navigates making sure our son gets all the love, learning and blessings he needs from our large family as he slowly Grows into the most unique individual with the wealth of our heritage and without the burden of any expectations.
He further wrote, “I know this is all kind of cliché, so I started by saying that I love seeing @sonamkapoor doing all this to appreciate the magic of motherhood. @sonamkapoor and all the moms out there.” (And there is some degree of motherhood in all of us, even if not everyone is a ‘full time mom’) Happy Mother’s Day!! You are the root of all life and love,” she concluded.
Soon after sharing the post, the ‘Neerja’ actor replied, “Oh wow.. I love you so much, don’t know what to say.” Anil Kapoor commented, “Absolutely blissful.”
Sonam and Anand married on May 8, 2018, after dating for several years. They welcomed their first child, a baby boy, on August 20, 2022, in Mumbai. Meanwhile, on the work front, Sonam will next be seen in the upcoming film `Blind` directed by Shome Makhija, featuring Purab Kohli, Vinay Pathak and Lillete Dubey in lead roles.
