She went on to reveal that losing her father while she was expecting her second twins affected her deeply. “Due to my father’s loss in my second twin pregnancy I literally lost the ability to walk due to the shock and had to be pushed on a wheelchair by my husband Peter. Being tiny my bones were affected and the babies pressed on my heart, so breathing was great difficulty,” wrote Celina.
With her second pregnancy, the actress lost one of her twins and her own mother, which taught her a lot of ‘motherhood’. “Facing the loss of baby Shamsher to a hypo plastic heart, to @arthurjhaag ending up in an incubator for 3 months as well as my mother’s sudden passing, following all this lead me to believe that it was “Motherhood” that made me realise the strength I never thought I had or was capable of. Makes me think often of all the sacrifices my own mother ( Dr Meeta Jaitly) did as an infantry officers wife bringing up two kids most of her life by herself, making sure we turned out the way we did. I also believe Motherhood has no gender I truly believe it is how you describe the very powerful strength, resilience and unconditional love that gives a child the courage to grow. I am so grateful I have the opportunity to experience this power, and to have also been on the receiving end of it too in all my formative years. Happy Mother’s Day to all who vow to love, nurture and care,” concluded Celina.
