Renowned television actress Debina Bonnerjee has been baring her heart out about her journey as a mother through her social media interactions and interviews. She is often seen sharing the amazing parts and the taxing and least-spoken moments of being a mom. Blessed with two little munchkins Lianna and Divisha, the actress recently opened up about why she decided to go for IVF (in vitro fertilisation) to conceive her elder daughter.
Talking to ETimes about the same, she revealed that initially the doctors had advised her to go for IUI (intrauterine insemination). Explaining the procedure she explained that her fertile days were calculated, according to which, the doctors gave her a few injections. Even her husband, actor Gurmeet Choudhary had to go through a semen analysis. However, the procedure did not work for her. She added, “I tried it 5 times. It was a failure.” ALSO READ: Debina Bonnerjee Shows Off Her Stretch Marks As She Sheds Light On Postpartum Body; Says, ‘They Remind Me That My Body Has Stretched Its Limit ’
The 40-year-old actress added that IVF was her next best option. Quoted by Hindustan Times, she said, “Initially, I was scared but not anymore. When people ask ‘Why IVF transfer’, I would say when something doesn’t happen over a period of time, I can’t waste time thinking why it is not happening. Rather I tried and after 5 years I was blessed with Lianna.” ALSO READ: SHOCKING! Debina Bonnerjee Gets DIAGNOSED With Influenza B Virus; Reveals She Is Staying Away From Her Daughters
For the unversed, Debina Bonnerjee and Gurmeet Choudhary fell in love while working on Star Plus' Ramayan. They had met each other during a talent show in Mumbai. Slowly, their friendship grew into something more. If reports are to be believed, the couple eloped and got married in 2006. But as they were young, they didn’t inform their parents. One and a half years after officially marrying in 2011, the couple revealed their secret marriage.
They welcomed their first born Lianna in April 2022 and announced their second pregnancy three months after her birth. They became proud parents again to daughter Divisha, who was born premature, in November 2022.
