    The baby girl is Sameera and her businessman husband, Akshai's second child. The couple already has a son, Hans who was born in 2015. The couple got married in 2014.

    Sameera, who had a very difficult first pregnancy, broke all pregnancy stereotypes and celebrated her impending motherhood with numerous photoshoots showing off her baby bump and pregnancy glow. The bold initiative of the actress was truly an inspiration for mothers who many times do not enjoy the pregnancy phase of becoming a mother simply because of the weight that they gain during the period.

    In India, pregnant women are expected to be behind the doors to ensure that the baby that they deliver is healthy but Sameera broke this stereotype and chose to enjoy the phase. With her bold move, she is setting major mommy goals for all the mothers-to-be.

    Recently, Sameera also shared a no makeup video and photographs to celebrate her imperfections. In the video, Sameera talked about being natural and being oneself.


    Sameera left everyone amazed with her underwater photoshoot where she wore a bikini and flaunted her baby bump just like any other confident woman enjoying her pregnancy.

    Here are some more photos from her pregnancy photoshoot.






    Last month, Sameera had a baby shower ceremony and looked stunning in red and yellow traditional Kanjeevaram saree. We just could not get enough of her pregnancy glow.

    Earlier in the year, Sameera told a news agency that though she had planned to have her first pregnancy and “bounce-back” to limelight again, things went in the opposite direction. In recent interactions, the actress also revealed that while she was shy about her body during her first pregnancy, she is more confident the second time around. 

    "It was the worst case scenario of what I could’ve imagined in terms of my body and the way I fell apart as a person because the pregnancy was very tough for me," she had revealed.

    Sameera was trolled for her pictures with the pregnant belly but she hit back at those body shaming trolls. Back in March, Sameera hit back at online bullies saying that everyone cannot be like Kareena Kapoor Khan, who got back to her slim figure in no time after having Taimur.

    Taking to Instagram, Sameera said that she touched 102 kgs in May 2015, the month her son Hans was born. "It took me to the deepest darkest places in my head. My confidence shattered. And I couldn’t lose the weight for a year after because I was too scared to even step out. I disappeared because I didn’t have the strength to be judged by the world after all the years of being glam and fit on screen. But the beautiful part is that you can only hit your lowest low to know you can absolutely climb out of that hole. It’s a fight. A hard one."

    Sameera further added that it took her two years to lose the weight and to step out and face the world again. Divulging more of her post-pregnancy weight loss secret, Sameera said, "I did it naturally with no fad diets, no easy way out. Only with dedicated workout, yoga, pilates and strength training. It’s important for me to post this now because I need women to know the struggle is real. The mood swings, hormonal changes and losing your body shape can mess with your mind. It’s a superficial world and people can be hurtful if you don’t keep up. But the key is to be fearless. Only you can get out of that rut. It’s yours to change. Be brave. You can move mountains if you just will it."

    On the work front, Sameera was last seen in the film Varadanayaka in 2013 following which she married businessman Akshai Varde in 2014.

    HerZindagi congratulates Sameera Reddy and Akshai Varde and wishes for a healthy and long life of her baby girl.
