One of the most important dreams of Nita Ambani right from her childhood was to become a mother. For the unversed, Nita Ambani married Mukesh Ambani in 1985 and are blessed with three children; Isha, Akash and Anant Ambani. Fast forward to now, Nita and Mukesh Ambani have comfortably settled their children with their loved partners, and the couple themselves are enjoying the bliss of their extended families now.
While Nita Ambani has been a complete hands-on mommy for the three of her children, right upto the age they decided to get married, there was a time when she had to bear the news of an impending impossibility of all her future dreams regarding motherhood. In an interview with IDiva way back in 2011, Nita had recalled a disastrous moment in her life at the age of 23, when her doctors had advised that she could never become a mother. Speaking about the same, she mentioned:
“A few years after I got married, I was told by the doctors that I would never have children. Even when I was in school, I would write long, copious essays titled, when I’ll be a mother, here I was at the age of 23 being told that I would never conceive. I was shattered. However, with the help of Dr Firuza Parikh, who is one of my closest friends, I first conceived my twins!”
For many who don’t know, Nita Ambani’s eldest kids, Isha and Akash are twins. However, they were conceived through IVF and not naturally. Years later, Isha Ambani in an interview with Vogue Magazine had revealed how her mother, Nita Ambani became a full-time mommy to them until they were five years of age. In her words:
“My parents had us after seven years of marriage—my twin Akash and I were IVF babies. When my mother finally had us she wanted to be a full-time mum initially. Later, she went back to work when we were five, but she was still a tiger mom.”
The breath of fresh air into the Ambani clan, Isha Ambani is the darling daughter of the family, and the only one considering her siblings and cousins. The entire family simply dotes on her, and the proof was found during her grand wedding festivities with her husband, Anand Piramal. In an interview with Vogue right after her wedding, the newly-wedded Isha revealed some behind-the-scenes secrets of her big fat wedding and revealed how her mother, Nita Ambani behaved like a CEO and did not allow her to take part in any arrangements. In her words:
“During the wedding my mom was CEO and I was chairperson. She and dad did all the hard work. Thankfully, we ended up liking the same things, so that made it a breeze. I didn’t go to a single wedding meeting.”
Not just being the apple of the eyes of her parents, Isha Ambani has been the most favourite grandchild of her grandparents, Dhirubhai and Kokilaben Ambani as well. Sharing a heartwarming anecdote during Isha’s engagement ceremony, Kokilaben Ambani had recalled how her husband, late Dhirubhai never had the first sip of tea without seeing the face of Isha first thing in the morning.
