Shilpa Shetty opens up on surrogacy:I had a couple of miscarriages

I didn’t want Viaan to grow up as a single child

Shilpa Shetty Kundra who welcomed daughter Samisha through surrogacy earlier this year. Recently in an interview with Popular Entertainment Portal Shilpa revealed that she suffered from many miscarriages. She 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.

But then, the Christian missionary shut down because they had a tiff with CARA. After giving up on adoption, surrogacy seemed the last day of hope, “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,” She added

Samisha Kundra was conceived after three attempts then We had been trying for a second child for four years. I had signed Nikamma and had committed my dates to Hungama when I got the news that in February, we were going to be parents again. We cleared our work schedules for the whole month.
