Viaan is God's best gift to me, like a birthday gift, Shilpa

New mother Shilpa Shetty turns a year older today but celebration and having fun at birthdays has become backseat for the actress today as she has something very special to rejoice which she feels God’s greatest gift to her. Shilpa turns mother recently and she is blessed to have her first baby. She is ecstatic and grateful to God for such a lovely gift.

“I am so happy and so joyously consumed by Viaan and of being a mom that I had actually forgotten that it’s my birthday until Raj reminded me about it,” says Shilpa, who will be celebrating her birthday for the first time with her two-and-a-half-weeks-old son.

“You know I feel that Viaan is God’s best gift to me, like a birthday gift in advance,” she smiles. “That’s why I think for the first time I have nothing on my birthday wishlist except a big thank you to God,” laughs Shilpa.

Speaking about birthday celebration, the actress said, “The biggest celebration for me after marriage was the day he was born, and since then, every day feels like a celebration, so I don’t really feel the need to have a big bash or anything. I just want it to be a small family affair,” says Shilpa.

The mother is busy in giving massage and changing nappy of her new-born, “Yes, I wouldn’t give up this joy for anything in the world,” she smiles, adding, “It’s hard to put down my feelings in words… Is there a better way to describe feeling on top of the world?” she quips. Enjoying motherhood to the hilt, Shilpa says that she’s in no rush to get back to work.

The atress is fitness freak and when asked about getting back in shape, the actor says that she has not even thought of it. “You know right now work, figure… these are the last things on my mind. Viaan’s like my sunshine and I am just basking in it,” says Shilpa.
