Embracing mommyhood is probably one of the most difficult tasks ever! While it does give a woman insurmountable pleasure upon holding her little princess/prince in her arms for the first time, but it also reminds her about the life-duty she now has voluntarily opted for. From worrying about changing his/her diaper to moulding him/her steadily into an able human being, hers is truly a thankless job. And one of the newest second-time yummy mummies of Bollywood, Sameera Reddy seems to be totally acing it.

Sameera Reddy got married to her biker-hubby, Akshai Varde on January 21, 2014. A year after their marriage, on May 24, 2015, Sameera and Akshai together had welcomed their first child, a baby boy, whom they had named Hans Varde. 4 years later, on July 12, 2019, Hans became a big brother to his baby sister. Announcing the 'big news', Sameera had taken to Instagram and shared a glimpse of her and her little baby’s hand and had written, “Our little angel came this morning My Baby girl! Thank you for all the love and blessings #blessed.”
And today marks the second day of World Breastfeeding Week 2019 (Aug 1-7) and for the same, we have seen many B-town mommies pouring their heart out and Sameera Reddy too, isn't far behind. Sharing a partial glimpse of her little baby in her arms, the doting mommy wrote, “New dads & loved ones listen up! Its World Breastfeeding week and this post is for you to know that you can be the biggest support and encouragement to a new mom! A mother may be depressed, lacking in confidence, worried, or stressed and it affects breastfeeding. These factors do not directly affect her milk production, but can interfere with the way in which she responds to her baby. This can result in the baby taking less milk, and failing to stimulate milk production. So be there for her. Understanding the pressure on her physically and emotionally is the best thing you can do. Nothing like feeling loved at such an overwhelming time.”
Sameera Reddy had further added, “I would also like to give a shoutout to moms who have struggled with low milk production. This could happen due to a pathological reason including endocrine problems or a host of other factors. A few mothers have a physiological low breast-milk production, for no apparent reason, and production does not increase when the breastfeeding technique and pattern improve. There is no reason to shame them or make them feel any pressure in not being able to BF. We need to support all mothers and show love and respect.” (Must Read: Shah Rukh Khan And AbRam Khan's Jet Ski Ride In The Maldives Is Pure Father-Son Love [VIDEO])
On July 23, 2019, Sameera Reddy had taken to her official Instagram handle and had shared her experience of breastfeeding. Posting a lovely picture with her newborn baby girl, resting on her shoulder, Sameera had written, “Day 11 - Happiness galore with no sleep, colic and feeding round the clock! I think I forgot how stressful breastfeeding can be!! I mean the pressure Is quite real and the whole top feed balance after a c-sec is hectic! I finally am exclusively feeding her but the whole process is something that should be natural, but it’s made to be very stressful. I realised with the feedback that a lot of women struggle with it. I think it’s cool if a mom wants to move totally to formula or only BF or balance both. There is no shame, and no one can define what’s the perfect way. We’re doing the best we can! Ladoos to pumps I’m on job but damn it’s really quite hard!”
Sameera Reddy still hasn’t shared a full, proper glimpse of her baby girl but the little one now has a name. Netizens were filled with excitement when on July 30, 2019, the second time newbie mommy had shared that she is going to announce her little angel’s name on July 31, 2019, and so she did! Sameera had taken to Instagram and had shared a picture of herself with her son, Hans Varde holding a sheet, where the little one’s name was written in orange. Sameera Reddy’s baby daughter has been named ‘Nyra’, which means ‘beauty of Goddess Saraswati and gift of God’. Sharing the picture, Sameera had written, “Welcoming our lil lady to the Varde family, baby girl ‘Nyra’ #blessed #grace #love #family.” (Also Read: Shilpa Shetty And Viaan's Swag As They Climbed Tree, She Pens An Emotional Note As Holidays End)
Time passes by with the blink of an eye and Sameera Reddy’s baby daughter, Nyra has turned three-weeks-old! When she had turned two-weeks-old, the Naksha actress had posted a close-up of herself holding her baby girl’s feet. Posting the same, she had written, “My baby girl turns 2 weeks today & she has big feet just like her mama.” Here is the image:
