Even Daniel Craig has praised Shilpa Shetty's perfect figure. There was a time when he said that Shilpa has an amazing body characteristic of the legendary Bond girl.
But after becoming the mother of a baby boy she is no more the diva Shilpa Shetty. She was asked about the post-pregnancy weight in a press conference in Lucknow on Friday and mommy dear replied "To be honest, I don't think I will ever be able to have the hourglass figure that I had before Viaan. I am not looking at weight loss at all right now, 'cos medically I am not allowed to do that, but yes I am definitely doing a few things for inch loss. Also, it is not fair for everyone around to keep an eye on actresses who have just delivered a baby. Try and understand, my priority is my baby and not weight loss," she stresses, adding, "Viaan leaves me with only 4 hours in a day to sleep. I don't have time right now to think about anything but him. He is too small and needs me for most of the day."
But while Shilpa's enjoying motherhood, she isn't in favour of late motherhood. The actress, who had her baby at 37, says, "I never chose to be a mother at 37. I always wanted to be a mother at the right age, but I didn't find Raj at the right time.There is a time for everything, and so also for motherhood. And medically too, women should have babies at the right time. I just didn't have a choice else I would have been a mother long time back." But aren't many women in India nowadays going in for late motherhood? "This can never be a trend in a country like India," she shrugs.
Shilpa gave birth to her first child, Viaan Raj Kundra on 21 May 2012.
