Sharing her experience of dealing with a premature birth herself, Celina posted a few pictures of her baby and wrote a long message. She talked about how it was a very hard time for them to deal with the pain of losing a son. "We went through immense heartache with one baby in NICU and funeral arrangements for his twin whom we lost to a congenital heart problem." Giving away some hope, she said that she and her husband Peter Haag survived on hope and amazing care of NICU nurses and NICU doctors in Dubai who worked tirelessly with them to make sure her other twin Arthur Jaitly Haag comes back home with them.

Adding a message of hope and encouragement, the actress continued by saying that while many preterm babies still carry a huge vulnerability to develop medical challenges or life-threatening circumstances, many do grow up to become completely healthy individuals."Keep your love and blessings coming for Arthur and don't forget to read up on how you can prevent/support premature babies," Jaitly concluded.
