Mumbai: Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan today said that becoming a mother has been a blessing for her.
"Change is constant in life. Every experience contributes to change and growth, making you hopefully a better human being. Becoming a mother has been a blessing and I cherish this gift from god," Aishwarya said.
"Aaradhya (her daughter) is a wonderful blessing in our lives and she is very special and it is a loving fulfilment. I am grateful for this experience," she said.
The actress was speaking at the unveiling of stem cell banking by LifeCell here.
Aishwarya said she had opted for banking her daughter`s stem cells.
"I was aware about stem cell banking as a development probably out of my interest in the medical field as most of my friends are doctors. I have been aware of this way before I got married. I was always fascinated by it. Any research and development in general let alone in science and healthcare has always been of interest to me," she said.
"The beauty of this association fulfils the wish of social encouragement. It is addressing a mindset that is fairly new to our country at large. I am happy to contribute, educate and make people aware about this scientific development," she added.
For Aishwarya it has been busy time professionally as she has lots of advertising and promotional work.
Aishwarya refused to divulge anything, when she was asked about the plans to celebrate her father-in-law Amitabh Bachchan`s birthday on October 11.
"You will know the plans. For us festivities begin from October to November, besides festivals like Navratri and Dusshera there are lot many birthdays in our family that come in this period. It is a busy and special time for us," she said.
"With respect and love we wish paa and other family members a happy birthday. Also, we wish everybody happy festival period," she added.
