Shilpa Shetty & Hubby Raj Welcome Daughter Through Surrogacy, Name Her ‘Samisha’ 

Shilpa Shetty tied the knot with businessman Raj Kundra in 2009. She gave birth to her first child, Viaan in 2012 when she was 37 years old. Even then, Shilpa had shared that she wanted to be a mother at the right age and recommended others to start a family at the right time to avoid complications in pregnancy.

Cut to 2020, Shilpa has once again embraced motherhood. But this time through surrogacy. Sharing the good news on social media, Shilpa wrote, “Our prayers have been answered with a miracle. With gratitude in our hearts we are thrilled to announce the arrival of our little Angel.”
