“It really pains me”: Actress Rani Mukerji opens up about miscarriage

Actress Rani Mukerji recently opened up about suffering a traumatic miscarriage during the COVID-19 pandemic. Talking to Galatta India, the actress, who recently turned 46, said that she tried for a second baby almost seven years ago when her daughter Adira was just one or one-and-a-half years old.

“My daughter is eight years old now, and I kept trying, and I finally got pregnant and then I lost the baby. It was a very, very testing time for me. And also, I’m not very young, though I look young,” said Mukerji.

Further, she said that 46 is not the age where she can have a baby. She said that it is ‘traumatic’ that she can’t give her daughter a sibling.

“It really pains me. But we have to always be grateful for what we have. For me, Adira is my miracle child, and I’m really happy I have her. I’m working on that, and I’m telling myself that yes, Adira is enough,” the Mardaani actress added.

Mukerji, who tied the knot with renowned producer-filmmaker Aditya Chopra in 2014, welcomed their daughter Adira on December 9, 2015.
