Shilpa Shetty, on the occasion of Mahashivratri today, welcomed her second child, a baby girl via surrogacy. The actress who is married to businessman Raj Kundra and is a mother to a 7-year-old Viaan Raj Kundra, shared the news of the arrival of her daughter on Instagram. Named Samisha Shetty Kundra, Shilpa revealed the meaning behind the Sanskrit-Russian name as 'to have someone like God'. Calling her the Laxmi of their house, Shilpa expressed her gratitude and shared a picture of Samisha. Samisha, as Shilpa announced, was born on February 15, 2020.
“Our prayers have been answered with a miracle. With gratitude in our hearts we are thrilled to announce the arrival of our little Angel. Samisha Shetty Kundra.

"I can’t express how happy I am to announce the newest member of our family Samisha Shetty Kundra blessed with a baby girl," Raj wrote on Instagram.
