There’s no running away from the fact that the father-daughter relationship is cherished by everyone. Doesn’t matter if you’re a superstar; you still need your dad’s shoulder to lean on and his hand to hold. There’s no critic, friend, philosopher and guide that can outdo your dad. 

Alia Bhatt-Mahesh Bhatt


He’s seen as one of the most powerful and compelling story-tellers in the industry. She’s seen as one of the most promising stars in the industry, and not because she’s Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter, but because she has what it takes to speak her mind and stay strong despite the wagging tongues, just like her dad. Together they are a powerhouse! 

Shruti Haasan- Kamal Haasan


Right, so we were introduced to this South Indian beauty in the film Luck ages ago, but we didn’t really compare her star status with that of her dad Kamal Haasan, who is one of the stalwarts in the movie business and not just in Bollywood. A talented actor herself, Shruti clearly has been taking great lessons from daddy dearest. What’s really cool is that they work hard and party harder!  

Sonam Kapoor- Anil Kapoor


It’s like we just pulled out pages from a fashion magazine to simply gaze in awe of this gorgeous looking father-daughter duo! Their unending love for style keeps them both in the limelight. Their uncanny ability to speak their mind, their sheer commitment to work and family and finally their vibrant personalities- so much in common yet so different from one another, Sonam and Anil are known for their candid interviews together and for the respect they share for another! 

Sonakshi Sinha-Shatrughan Sinha

He’s “Anything but Khamosh” says Sonakshi about her dad, which is actually the title of his biography! The yesteryear superstar shares an amazing rapport with his now-superstar daughter, and it’s quite endearing to see a family that sticks together come what may. Sonakshi seems to have inherited her rock star genes from her dad which make her one of the few actresses who doesn’t need to put up a facade. She is who she is. Just like the Khamosh hero we love.

Shweta Bachchan Nanda- Amitabh Bachchan

She may not be an actress, but the fact that her father is the best of the best in Hindi cinema, makes this a valid entry into this post. As a daughter, the Bachchan girl has always been candid about her relationship with her parents, in particular her father. Always considered the prim and propah kind, Shweta has knocked off questions regarding family with great humor but never crossing the line of respect.

The Chopra’s

Daddy’s Little Girl, she will be. Priyanka is said to have got the line tattooed on her fore arm when her father was hospitalized and she was at a shoot for her then-to-be released album Exotic. Knowing that her father would never approve of a tattoo she asked her mum to send her his handwriting which she would then use to get inked. Clearly, this father-daughter duo will stay on forever despite his recent demise.

Shraddha Kapoor- Shakti Kapoor

Is this one cool baap-beti jodi, or what! Shakti Kapoor, known for his ever-so-comical roles and villainous appearances is twice as funny in person. And he has clearly passed on this trait to Shraddha who is just as candid and fun off-sets. Goofy, and totally in sync with each other, they nail this selfie hands down. 

Karisma-Kareena-Randhir Kapoor

The fact that you’re married and have kids doesn’t have to let you stray away from your own family. It only brings your closer. The queens of everything glamorous and absolutely picture perfect, Kareena and Karisma share a lovely bond with papa Randhir. Their family ties are much talked about for a reason- respect for one another despite the age. A mentor, a friend and a super cool dad to two gorgeous girls.

Esha Deol - Dharmendra

Her marriage might have been under the radar but Esha Deol is all too happy to share a moment with the two most important men in her life- pappa and hubby. The father-daughter bond is ever green and looks like nothing can take away from the affection they have for each other. Although a star in her own right, she’s still daddy’s little daughter, and forever will be.

Bipasha Basu- Hirak Basu

Bipasha isn’t usually the one to proclaim her love for parents from the rooftops, but the actress has recently been posting a few sweet selfie shots of her self along with mamma and papa. (Quite a relief to see these after all the glamorous ones with beau Karan Singh Grover.) We’re convinced that away from the limelight and all the madness onscreen, she’s just another ghar ki beti who loves her own family time.

Bollywood stars are known for doing it all differently, be it weddings, promotions or other big announcements.

Having said that it is not surprising how these celebrities chose unusual names for their children.

SRK named his daughter Suhana, while Rani named her daughter Adira and Hrithik’s sons are called Hrehaan and Hridhaan.

With Salman Khan’s sister Arpita Sharma naming her son Ahil, we bring to you a quick recap of B-town kids and their unconventional names.


Aamir Khan Aamir has a daughter Ira from his first wife Reena Dutta. The name has various meanings - ‘watchful’ in Hebrew, ‘warrior’ in Greek and ‘the wind God’ in Sanskrit.


Aishwarya Rai, Abhishek Bachchan Ash and Abhi named their daughter Aaradhya, which means the first one.


Farhan Akhtar Farhan and Adhuna’s daughters are named Shakya, which means energy circle in Sanskrit and Akira, which means intelligent in Japanese.

Hrithik Roshan Hrithik and Suzanne’s sons are named Hrehaan and Hridhaan, which mean God’s chosen one and good heart respectively.


Kajol Ajay and Kajol’s daughter is named Nysa, a name of Greek origin, which means ambition. Their son is named Yug, which means era in Hindi.

Lara Dutta Lara’s daughter looks like a little princess and we aren’t surprised her parents named her Saira, which means princess.

Shilpa Shetty Shilpa and Raj Kundra named their son Viaan, which means full of energy and life.

Shahrukh Khan SRK and Gauri named their youngest son AbRam, which is a popular name of Hebrew origin. Their eldest son has a very conventional name - Aryan while their daughter is named Suhana, which means ‘pleasing’ in Sanskrit.


Sushmita Sen Sushmita has two daughters Renee and Alicia. Renee means ‘reborn’ while Alicia means ‘one who is noble’.

Bollywood stars have it all from name, fame, money and power. However, it is often forgotten that they too face difficulties and battle hard times in life.

Very often their lives are projected as big and happening. But that is not the truth!

Amitabh Bachchan Amitabh suffered from a ruptured spleen in 1982,  while he was shooting an action sequence in Coolie. Later in 1984, he was diagnosed of myasthenia gravis, which made him physically weak. However, Big B braved it and overcame the odds.


Hrithik Roshan In 2013, the Krrish star was treated for a brain clot. A month later he gave an open statement that he was absolutely fantastic even with the hole in his brain.


Lisa Ray Lisa was diagnosed of bone marrow cancer in 2009. In April 2010 she was announced cancer-free, but not completely cured. However, this did not deter the actress from leading a normal life.

Manisha Koirala Manisha was diagnosed of ovarian cancer in 2012 and even underwent a surgery to get rid of it.


Salman Khan The actor admitted in 2011 that he was suffering from a condition called trigeminal neuralgia, which caused acute pain in the face and jaw. The Dabbang star is being treated for the same and is fighting it with all willpower

Shahrukh Khan SRK has undergone 8 surgeries including his ribs, ankle, knee, neck, eye and shoulder. However, nothing has deterred him from being the Bollywood Badshah!


Yuvraj Singh During the World Cup 2011, Yuvraj was diagnosed with a cancerous tumour in his lung. He later underwent chemotherapy in USA and returned to India to take part in the 2012 T20.

Last year photographer Tara Ruby created a photo series of military mums breastfeeding their children that she hoped it might help normalise breastfeeding for those working in the armed forces.


Not only did the release of the pictures light a match under the whole breastfeeding in public debate, but it also encouraged other mums to get in touch to share their own breastfeeding journeys. So, overwhelmed by the response, Tara was inspired to create a whole series around women breastfeeding while doing their day job.

The new pictures of working mums nursing their children, include a veteran ‘tandem feeding’ her two kids, a Las Vegas showgirl dressed in full costume, a nurse and a teacher.

Discussing the powerful photo series with Cosmopolitan, Tara explained that the nurse was one of her favourite images to capture.


“The nurse I absolutely love,” she said. “I thought it was really funny, because it shows just how crazy it is when you start nursing an older child. The whole time she had to have her foot up in mom’s face! 'This is exactly what she does every time we nurse,’ she told me.”

The release of the new pictures come as it was revealed this week that an unidentified New Mexico firefighter could face disciplinary action after a picture of his wife breastfeeding their infant son wearing his uniform was posted online by Tara.

But Tara is keen to ensure that the controversy surrounding the photo doesn’t cloud the message behind the series.  

“The intention has been since the very beginning to show that a mum can be a full-time mum and still work a full-time job and do both equally at the same time,” she explained.

“I feel like sometimes people have to make that decision between going back to work full-time and staying at home so they can breastfeed full-time.”

Kristin Cavallari takes her mommy duties seriously.

The 29-year-old took to Instagram this week to post a photo of herself poolside in a striped bikini holding up her breast pump.


"Thank you @inspirato for this gorgeous view while I pump #DutyCalls #Inspirato," she captioned the fun pic while vacationing.

Inspirato resorts have locations all over the world, but the shoe designer's locale seems extra sunny this time of year. The mother of three already looked nicely tanned.


This isn't the first time The Hills alum has posted a photo of herself pumping.

In March the Balancing in Heels author Instagrammed a shot of herself dolled up while pumping milk, writing, "The glamorous side of the #BalancinginHeels #BookTour."

Cavallari recently opened up to ET about her maternal duties and taking care of her baby daughter, Saylor.


"I'm done having kids," she told ET. "I got my girl, I'm good. We did it quick… I'm looking forward to giving away my maternity stuff and breast pump. My girlfriends are all getting pregnant now."

Celebrity chef Sandra Lee is back to the grind after beating cancer last year.

The Food Network star took a healthy and happy selfie in the car on the way to shoot with Bobby Flay on Tuesday.


"First day back on set am shooting with @bobbyflay," she captioned the pic. "Nice to be with my brother."

Lee underwent a double mastectomy last May after being diagnosed with breast cancer in March 2015. The 51-year-old suffered a setback in August when complications from her surgery left her hospitalized with an infection, but in September she opened up to ET's Nancy O'Dell about being cancer free.


"I would make that decision again," Lee said of her surgery. "Absolutely, even given the complications and the secondary infection. There is no question in my mind. [I'm] relieved that there is no cancer left in my body and I just want to move on with my life."

Lee also credited her longtime boyfriend, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, for being her rock throughout her battle with cancer and recovery from the mastectomy.

Another story of a mum feeling shamed for breastfeeding her baby in public has hit the headlines [Photo: Rex Features]

Another day, another mum made to feel she’s boobed for breastfeeding in public.


As any new mum will tell you, when your baby needs feeding, they NEED FEEDING. And if you happen to be having lunch in a restaurant then so be it.

So when Carla Francome’s baby son started grizzling that he was hungry as she dined in a popular pizza chain she thought nothing of lifting her T-Shirt to breastfeed him. That was until she was “reprimanded” for doing so.  

The freelance TV producer was feeding six-month-old Archie at La Porchetta in Islington, London when a waiter told her to “fully” cover up or go into a back room.


And the 37-year-old, from Archway, says she was so “mortified” she burst into tears in the middle of the restaurant.

Breastfeeding in public continues to spark debate [Photo: Rex Features]

A spokeswoman for the chain has since “apologised unreservedly” for the incident.

“I am really disappointed, it is absolutely not our policy. It is very unfortunate,” the spokeswoman told Islington Tribune. 


“We can only apologise to this lady. The manager will be disciplined.”

There are many positive aspects of breastfeeding (just ask Jamie Oliver. *jokes*), but as most nursing mums will testify, there are also a number of trickier aspects to deal with. And new mum Coco Austin has just uncovered one of them…bleeding nipples.


Since welcoming her daughter, Chanel in November, the 37-year-old, who is married to rapper Ice-T, has been excitedly documenting her parenting journey on Instagram. But speaking in a recent interview the new mum has opened up about one of the difficult side-effects she’s faced while breastfeeding her little one.


“They told me breastfeed, breastfeed, breastfeed,” she told People. “They’re like, ‘The first week is hard, but once you make it over that first week, it’s gonna be great.’ In that first week my nipples were bleeding and scabbing over. I was like, “No one tells you that your nipples bleed!’”

Fresh from his victory on the sugar tax at this week’s budget, Jamie Oliver has announced he is turning his attention to another family-friendly campaign – promoting breastfeeding.


The news comes as it emerged that the TV chef and his wife Jools, 41 are adding to their brood and expecting their fifth baby in August.

Speaking to LBC Radio, the soon to be father of five explained he believes women need to be encouraged to breastfeed in order to tackle issues like obesity.

“I think the most upsetting thing for me at the moment is breastfeeding. We have the worst breastfeeding in the world,” he said.

Emily Locke, a 33-year-old mom from Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, was taking photos for her sister's wedding at the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio this past weekend when she had to take a break to breastfeed her 9-month-old son. In a Facebook post, she explains that she was soon approached by a staff member who told her, "You aren't allowed to do that here."


"I responded that I was actually legally allowed to nurse my child," Locke wrote. "She said it was against the museum policy, and I had to stop. I refused, and she said she would have to get her manager. I said I would be happy to speak with her manager. Moments later, I was approached by a young woman. She said I would have to move, and they had a private area where I could 'do that.' I said I was fine where I was, and told her that legally I could nurse my child where ever I was permitted to be. (I wanted to be near where my family and other two children were posing for the pictures. I truly did not have time to stop the feeding and move to another location even if I wanted to.)"


Locke says the woman then told her that Society is a "family museum" - to which she responded that she was engaged in a "family moment." (#Boom.) "She then told me she was just trying to protect the innocent children," Locke recalled. "I was pretty shocked."

The confrontation ended when the museum employee gave up, but the ordeal understandably left Locke feeling "disappointed and saddened." So, she shared her story on Facebook, and it has since racked up over 31,000 likes and more than 10,000 shares.

Locke's experience also grabbed the attention of the Historical Society's President & CEO Kelly Falcone-Hall, who issued the following statement in response:

The majority of breastfeeding photos that do the rounds online may be beautiful and intimate, but most are nothing like the reality itself – which is why one photographer decided to make it her mission to capture what breastfeeding it actually like, in all its beautiful messiness.


In a series titled “What does breastfeeding actually look like?” photographer Suzie Blake snapped a series of mums breastfeeding their children – without the styling, airbrushing and all the other alterations you can usually spot.

“I was tired of seeing unrealistic photographs of women breastfeeding, so I took a photo of myself breastfeeding my baby, posted it on Facebook, and asked if other women would like to be photographed in the same way. I was inundated with responses, and so the project began,” Blake wrote on her Bored Panda submission.


Blake, a Melbourne-based mum and artist, says she feels there’s a “distinct lack of authenticity” in images of women breastfeeding.

“Most photos are highly stylised, airbrushed and unrealistic; many are sheer fantasy. Whether it is the angelic mother in her clinical white perfection or some model on the front of a fashion magazine. I’m tired of images that fail to show the realities of breastfeeding for most women.”

Instead, Blake’s project is about mums sans make-up and lacking in sleep, with leaky nipples and unbrushed hair.

“This is about giving in to all the demands of your two-year-old while you try to feed your newborn. This is about dishes piled up in the kitchen and dirty laundry building in the corner. This is about puke on your shoulder and toys on the floor. This is about let down milk sprays in cafes and engorged breasts at the park.

“This is about empowering women. This is about the amazing thing that only we, the women humans of this earth, can do; sustain another humans life with our own.”

When Chelsea Craig hired a photographer to capture some precious family moments, she had no idea that one of the pictures would end up going viral.


During the shoot, Chelsea’s eldest daughter, Addy, 3 started getting hungry, so the mum-of-two decided to quickly feed her so they could continue. But her 16-month-old daughter, Emmilyn wanted to be fed too, so Chelsea nursed them both together.

Photographer Mae Burke, who specialises in breastfeeding pictures, decided to capture the ‘tandem breastfeeding’ moment and the picture has since been shared online.

The poignant moment was captured by photographer Mae Burke [Photo: Mae Burke]

But Chelsea insists she wasn’t trying to make a statement with the image and doesn’t consider herself a breastfeeding ‘activist’.


“I’m very confident in the decision that this is what’s right for us,” she told People. “I consider myself a supporter of women’s rights and the choices that we make as mums. For some, that’s breastfeeding until the kid is 7, for some that’s breastfeeding until the kid is 2 weeks, for some it’s not breastfeeding at all, and that’s okay with me.”

Explaining that she hadn’t expected to breastfeed Addy for more than a year, Chelsea also added that she is letting her daughter decide when she is ready to stop.

“I don’t know how much longer the journey will be,” she said. “I thought I knew three years ago, but I didn’t.”

But the mum-of-two has hit back at the criticism on her blog.


“I’ve always been self-conscious so people looking at me while breastfeeding was something I tried to avoid,” she wrote.  

“After a while though I decided I didn’t care about people’s thoughts on the subject anymore.”

Explaining that the original goal of the photos was to capture memories of motherhood, she continued:
