Shilpa Shetty, who had announced that her whole family including her children, had tested positive for COVID-19 is currently in quarantine. While the pressure of coronavirus and lockdown can be hard for children and their understanding of the normal world, Shilpa Shetty appreciates that her son Viaan is different. On his 9th birthday, Shetty pens a heartwarming post detailing how her son has become so responsible during the lockdown.
"There's so much to say, So much to do...You're growing up too fast, I’m not even done hugging you," she started off her post. Sharing a video of Viaan, Shilpa added, "This video is when you were 4. We know how much your birthday means to you and how you would look forward to it, but not being able to have any playdates for over a year & a half, and not be able to celebrate your birthday 2 years in a row without any fuss... makes me so proud of the sensitive, compassionate, and loving boy that you’re growing up to be."
Now that Viaan has recovered from COVID-19, Shilpa adds how excited her son is to go back to attending his virtual classes. "You fought Covid-19 so bravely, you are just as excited about your virtual classes as you were about going to school, you have understood how necessary it is to always wear a mask and maintain social distance with outsiders! You’ve not only adjusted to the new normal without any complaints or tantrums, but also taken on the role of being a doting elder brother so beautifully. Have to admire how beautifully you have done it with your sense of humour and maturity. This Lockdown has made you so responsible so soon?!?! Must say, I’m a proud mommy! Happy 9th birthday, my darling baby Viaan-Raj. May you always shine, the brightest star wherever you go. Mumma and papa lovvveee youuuu."
