Dia accompanied the picture with an adorable poem, “Blessed to be…One with Mother Earth…One with the Life Force that is the beginning of everything…Of all stories. Lullabies. Songs. Of new saplings. And the blossoming of hope. Blessed to cradle this purest of all dreams in my womb."
New mommy Anushka Sharma, who welcomed her baby girl back in Jan 2021 with husband Virat Kohli, took to the comment section of the adorable post and dropped a heart emoticon to display her affection for the new mom-to-be.
