Single parenting is the toughest act for anyone

Raising a child as a single parent is very stressful. As a single parent, you have to handle several tasks and make more than a few decisions. You may require effective ways to manage the special challenges single parents usually experience, to support and nurture the little one.

Here we are not talking about parents who have some kind of arrangement for sharing the responsibilities of children while they are not together. The following celebrities have consciously decided to be single parents and have become an inspiration to all the single parents out there.

Neena Gupta

She has to be the most daring one among all celebrity single parents. In the 1980’s she decided to have a child out of wedlock. It could have been so easy for her to go on a “short trip” in true Bollywood style and get rid of the child. Instead, she decided to have her child even when she was certain that there was no possibility of a marriage. In one of her recent interviews, she expressed her own surprise at taking this brave decision.

How did she cope?

After the initial objection to her unconventional choice, Neena Gupta’s father came to understand her daughter’s decision and became her rock of Gibraltar. He lived with her and took responsibilities of the household and little Masaba when Neena was busy earning money. She had to accept many acting jobs for money alone, which made her unhappy as an actress but as a mother she regrets nothing.

How is the present?

She spent whole of her youth in bringing up Masaba. After her daughter grew up and became a trusted name in fashion, Neena Gupta was lucky enough to get an understanding partner. She is now happily married and so is her daughter.

The lesson for other single parents

There is a reward for all hardships and it is never too late to find true love.

Sushmita Sen

She was always vocal about child welfare even during and after her Miss Universe pageant.  Even if everyone thought it was just a speech she was making to impress the judges, she proved that she meant it when she adopted Renee in the year 2000. She was so happy with her experience that she adopted Alisah in 2010.

How is she coping?

Her family has stood behind her and her decision.

How is the present?

There have been rumours of many relationships but she is still single. Appearances in TV shows and public events along with her business ventures keep her busy. In her social network accounts she regularly posts cute pictures and videos of the mother and two daughters dancing, walking the ramp or just hanging out.

The lesson for other single parents

Life is tough but it’s better to go through the hardships dancing and having fun.

Raveena Tandon

When Raveena was only 21 one of her second cousins died; leaving behind two daughters. The cousin’s husband was an alcoholic. So Raveena decided to adopt the two girls.

How did she cope?

Her family helped her take care of the girls while she was busy with her career. In 2004, she got married to Anil Thadani and then had two biological children. Anil and Raveena have brought up all the four together.

How is the present?

Pooja and Chhaya are beautiful young ladies now. Both are happily married.

The lesson for other single parents

If you accidentally or otherwise happen to become a parent at a young age, don’t lose heart. You can have fun, a career and a loving partner too!

Tusshar Kapoor

A single female parent is still not that odd but a single male parent? Tusshar Kapoor had such a strong urge to become a parent that he could not wait to find his ideal life partner. In 2016 he had Laksshya via surrogacy.

How is he coping?

His family has been always behind him. His mother takes care of his son while his sister spoils him by showering innumerable gifts.

How is the present?

He still is a proud and caring single parent.

The lesson for other single parents

Everyone can become a parent. Let the society not dictate it for you.

Karan Johar

In his autobiography, he has indirectly mentioned his sexual leanings. He wondered if he would end up alone. So it was only obvious that he opted to become a parent via surrogacy. In 2017 he became the proud father of the twins, Roohi and Yash.

How is he coping?

His mother is his rock. Taking care of the twins is her full-time occupation. She has finally found some happiness after her husband’s demise because of her grandchildren.

How is the present?

Karan Johar recently celebrated their birthday in style. The pictures of the party prove that the twins are already Bollywood royalty.

The lesson for other single parents

Although they turn our life upside down, at the end of the day children are gifts. They make our lives a lot more fun.
