Sameera Reddy was recently blessed with a baby girl, Nyra and the actress is on cloud nine. While Sameera, who has been a part of several Bollywood projects, has not shied away from completing her professional commitments she says she considers Kareena Kapoor Khan as her role model for breaking stereotypes about marriage and pregnancy.
Speaking about the same, in her recent interview to Mumbai Mirror, the actress said, “She is such a hands-on loving mother and I respect her for breaking the myth that motherhood requires you to change your attitude with respect to your career.”
The Race actress further said, “I was confused, feeling low and crying all the time. Maybe it was the baby blues and I did not want to go down that road again. That’s why I have been up and about since the first day of this pregnancy. I was shooting till a day prior to Nyra’s birth.”
Speaking about her daughter, it may be revealed that Sameera had recently taken her daughter to trek the highest peak of Karnataka. Revealing her intentions behind doing that, Sameera said, “My Nyra is an explorer, she was wide awake all the way, checking out everything. Not once did she cry and later she slept really well. I spent nine months making this beautiful child, I’m not going to be sitting at home being scared now. It was an educational trip for four-and-a-half year-old Hans. We also went on a safari in Bhadra reserve so that he could see animals like tigers and peacocks, two of which he spotted right in front of the door. It was a special moment for him. Then, we went hiking and I decided to scale Karnataka’s highest peak. It’s something I was really excited about.”
