Mumbai, May 9 IANS | 3 months ago

Actress Shilpa Shetty, who has won titles like 'Yummy Mummy' and 'Spalicious Mom' recently, says mothers don't need her advice as whatever they do for their child, they do it with their heart.


Shilpa was named Yummy Mummy by Bio-Oil based on a survey, and she was given the Spalicious Mom title at the recently held GeoSpa asiaSpa India awards 2013.

The 38-year-old says these are huge compliments as they appreciate her all-round achievements after giving birth to her son Viaan.

"They (people) didn't just vote for me because I have got back to my slim shape. They felt that as an all-rounder I have been able to balance motherhood and my work and get back to shape. So, there is no bigger compliment," Shilpa said here at an event Thursday.

Despite being an active entrepreneur now, Shilpa stays on her toes around her son. She says everything about motherhood is tough but educative.

"Whatever we do, we do it out of heart. Other mothers don't need my advice. I stay on my toes and that's just normal. I used to think that pregnancy is hard and after delivery things will be easy."

"But then you feel the first six months are very hard...then he (the baby) starts to walk. When he starts to walk, he falls everywhere and you are scared...Every phase (of a child's life) is a learning curve for parents," she added.

Shilpa is into the spa business and she recently also opened a gold company Satyug Gold. She is married to businessman Raj Kundra and became a mother in 2012.
