Actor Aditi Shirwaikar Malik recently welcomed her first child, son Ekbir, with her husband Mohit Malik. The actress has been quite vocal about embracing motherhood for the first time and the challenges that she faced. Aditi often shares her motherhood experiences and emotions under Motherhood Diaries. In 7 chapters of her diaries, the Shararat actress talked about the "whirlwind of emotions" she experienced ever since she gave birth. Aditi shared a picture of herself and her son, captured by her husband while she was feeling particularly vulnerable.
Aditi wrote, “Motherhood is an overwhelming journey....one that has many ups and downs! People talk about pregnancy mood swings, but I feel the ride afterwards can also be bumpy. While for most of the time newfound motherhood is full of warmth and love, the beautiful smell of a newborn and the giggles and laughter that come afterwards, there also are sleepless nights, a complete change around in schedule, responsibilities, and just a new you! And with it comes a whirlwind of emotions sometimes! It's tiring!”
She added, “And sometimes you just miss having a life with lesser responsibilities. And at that moment remember, it's completely ok to feel overwhelmed, it's ok to feel a little low. Being a mother doesn't mean that you can never have your lows, accepting them and overcoming them is important.”
The actress also revealed that this picture was taken by Mohit when she was crying, she didn't realize when he entered the room and clicked it. These tears though weren't the low ones, she was just overwhelmed looking at Ekbir, thinking about how beautiful this phase is.
