Kajal Aggarwal and husband Gautam Kitchlu welcomed the new year in 2022 by sharing a big and exciting news of their pregnancy with the world. Ever since, I had been in awe of how gracefully and beautifully Kajal had been carrying herself in this new phase of life. And two days ago, the couple finally welcomed their baby boy to the world, whom they have named Neil Kitchlu.
After embracing motherhood, Kajal took to social media to share her experience of turning a mother and going through childbirth. She penned a heartfelt note and the way she has described her journey is just too beautiful.
Check out her post:
Here's what she wrote,
"Excited and elated to welcome my baby Neil into this world. Our birthing was exhilarating, overwhelming, long, yet the most satisfying experience there could be!
Holding Neil upon my chest covered with white mucous membrane and placenta within seconds of his birth has been my only tryst with self actualisation and such an indescribable feeling! That one moment made me understand the deepest potential of love, made me feel tremendous amount of gratitude and realise the responsibility of my heart outside of my body - forever - and all at the same time.
Of course it’s not been easy- 3 sleepless nights that bleed into early mornings, learning to latch and burp, squishy bellies and stretched skin, frozen pads, breast pumps, uncertainty, constant worry if you’re doing it all right, all topped with dozes of anxiety.
But it’s also moments like these -
Sweet cuddles in the wee hours of the morning, gazing into each other’s eyes with a look of confident recognition, adorable little kisses, the quiet moments when it’s just the two of us, growing, learning, discovering each other and navigating this wonderful journey together.
In reality, postpartum isn’t glamorous but it sure can be beautiful! ❤️"
The way Kajal has penned down her thoughts, it has just made me feel so happy and excited for her and the newest member in her life, and the way their relationship is forming and evolving. While she has noted down the beautiful aspect of motherhood, she has also pointed out the not so easy parts. But as she puts it, the happy moments just outweigh the the not so happy ones by a huge margin.
Kajal had embraced her pregnancy admirably and I am sure she will embrace motherhood with as much grace and panache. I wish her and Gautam a big congratulations for their happy news and wish all three of them a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness.
