Sameera Reddy; an actress who is best known for her films like Race and Maine Dil Tujhko Diya, is enjoying her second pregnancy with second husband, Akshai Varde. However; the actress's first pregnancy was not all rosy, and now travelling back to those days, Sameera has revealed her struggle with post pregnancy depression!


Speaking to IANS; Sameera opened up about the pressures of looking good during and post pregnancy. "I got pregnant in just a couple of months after my marriage. The game plan was to have the pregnancy and bounce back and getting in the limelight again. But I have never experienced anything like that... It was just the opposite. It was the worst case scenario of what I could've imagined in terms of my body and the way I fell apart as a person because the pregnancy was very tough for me."


Sameera; who married businessman Akshai Varde, delivered her first baby, Hans in 2015. The actress revealed she was bed ridden when she was few months into her first pregnancy. Sameera said," I just started putting on weight and falling into some kind of place in my head because it went from shows, award functions and a glamorous lifestyle to just not being able to handle what pregnancy was doing to me."


The actress; who became a 102 kilos during the pregnancy said," From being that 'sexy Sam', I went to this. I put on 32 kg and couldn't recognize myself. I was a complete mess. I would leave the house and they said, 'Is this Sameera Reddy? What happened to her?' That pushed me into a further hole."


She further said," There is so much pressure upon us as actors or people in the public eye to portray we have this unreal life. I was also buying into it and trying to provide to it as an actor. I was also trying to keep up with that and say, 'Hey! look at I am so perfect'. (But) I was the poster girl of what a pregnancy shouldn't be."


Sameera concluded that she is now at peace with how she is! Reddy said," I will not look glamorous all the time. But I wanted to come out and say Hey! it's okay to be like this."
