Bollywood actress, Celina Jaitly has recently recalled her horrific experience when she faced severe backlash on social media for not giving equal attention to her twins.
Taking to Instagram, Celina shared a throwback picture from her first post-pregnancy shoot with her kids for Stardust magazine. For the photoshoot, Celina donned a blue-coloured monokini and had flaunted her fit body along with her twin babies. She had held one of her twin babies in her arms while the other one was lying next to her on a mat.
Celina wrote a long photo caption on her Insta page and revealed how netizens brutally trolled her.
“"@facebook brought up this picture from @stardustmagazineindia edition 9 years ago and along with it a lot of memories. At that time, while I thought I was sharing one of the most blessed times of my life, I was surprised to be trolled tremendously on social media for this particular shot published in the magazine by then editor @ramkamalmukherjee. In reality, me & my 1-month-old twins were actually enjoying a very rare, cool, but sunny day by our poolside in Dubai, I was still recovering from my C- section twin childbirth & the babies were kicking about their legs feeling free during one of the hottest months of Dubai," she wrote.
Celina further said that people trolled her for neglecting one of her twin babies.
“I never understood why I was trolled. If you are overweight, they troll you; if you look great, they troll you; how your baby kicks about freely seems to them as neglect without ever giving a break to the mother who is constantly judged. Why must anyone even feel entitled to guess reasons behind everything someone like me does which is not according to their preconceived notions,” she further added.
She further revealed that her baby was diagnosed with hip dysplasia. Talking about her child, “The twin who is on the mat (@winstonjhaag ) the doctors suspected dysplasia of the hip in twins (a condition which happens in multiple births), hence we always looked for opportunities to let him freely kick to keep an eye on the condition, however, I was immensely harassed for apparently “neglecting” him by putting him next to me on the mat.”
Celina also asked people not to jump to a conclusion before knowing the real story. “Before we jump to conclusions about someone please do remember a picture may be perfect but behind it sometimes are stories of many imperfections and challenges overcome with great tenacity. At that time I didn’t want to distract myself away from the joy of my first motherhood but the evoking of that memory today told me to definitely share this story. I wish people would understand that there’s no way to be a perfect mother & a million ways to be a good one,” the actress concluded.
For the uninitiated, Celina got married to hotelier, Peter Haag in Austria, in 2011. They were blessed with twins for the second time on September 10, 2018. Unfortunately, one of their sons, Samsher Jaitly Haag, couldn’t survive. During an interview with IANS, Celina had talked about her child and revealed that she had gone through two major losses.
On the professional front, Celina Jaitly was last appeared in the film, Welcome!
