Mumbai: Actress Karisma Kapoor says being a mom is the best feeling in this world but at the same time she feels that no books or tips can prepare a woman for motherhood.

"I think it is a challenge everyday because you want to be a good mother, you want to be a good parent, you are learning everyday and it`s a new experience everyday. Absolutely, it is the best thing in this world -- being a mum is just the best thing ever," said the 37-year-old.

Karisma, a mother of two, however, opines that nothing can prepare a woman for motherhood.

"Just like any mum, I had read a lot of books, then of course you ask your own mum and you get a lot of tips. But frankly, my opinion is that nothing can prepare you for motherhood," she said.

"You know, when you hold your baby in your arms, it is a totally different feeling. So, nothing can really prepare you for that," added the actress who quit her then 12-year-old career after her marriage to Delhi-based businessman Sanjay Kapur in 2003.

She has a daughter, Samaira who was born in 2005, and son Kiaan, born in 2010.

The actress was speaking at a press conference to announce her tie-up with an online baby products brand "".

Karisma, the first Kapoor girl to step into showbiz, is making her comeback on the big screen with Vikram Bhatt`s "Dangerous Ishq".

She has had an illustrious career and starred in 58 films. Some of her notable performances include `Raja Babu`, `Andaz Apna Apna`, `Hero No.1`, `Biwi No.1` , `Fiza`, `Zubeidaa`, `Raja Hindustani`, and `Dil To Pagal Hai`, for which she won the national award for the best supporting actress.
