Bollywood actress Rani Mukerji Chopra shared the first picture of her and filmmaker-husband Aditya Chopra’s daughter Adira.
In a heartfelt note shared along with the picture, Rani says she will always encourage her little bundle of joy to follow her heart and be carefree.
“I love my baby Adira. Can't live or breathe without her. My life has changed... but for the better. But having a baby is so scary, because you suddenly stop living for yourself. You live for your child. As she has given birth to you... A mother! I can't sleep at night... I can't get sleep in the day... I often think about all the zillions of mothers who have given birth... Do they all go through the same anxiety... Or is it only me? I salute all mothers! I am eternally grateful to the Almighty to have given me this blessing in the form of Adira! I don't know if anyone understands me at this point of my life... But I'm going with the flow... I let anyone and everyone say things to me without me reacting... sometimes reacting also... I've become much calmer, more patient and more forgiving. It happened overnight one day suddenly. I realized I have changed. Again for the better I guess. I hope I can bring up Adira beautifully. Without any fears. Brave, wise, clever, disciplined, well mannered... I want everyone to be proud of her. Even if nobody is, I will always be proud of her. Encourage her to follow her heart, not get bullied ever, not get pressurized for anything in life... Be carefree always, happy and smiling, laughing wholeheartedly, her smile reaching her eyes...” - Rani Mukerji Chopra [on the eve of her daughter Adira's first birthday] OH MY GOD 😭 I AM CRYING, THEY ARE SO CUTE ❤️ Mashallah, may Allah bless them both! Both are so lucky to have each other 🙏🏼 LOVE
