Falak wrote: “When it comes to true strength and the ability to endure pain, women blow us away.
“The morning sickness, the heartburn, the sleeplessness, backaches, mood swings and what not!
“Then there’s also the mental stress of worrying that the baby they’re carrying is healthy, juggling work with pregnancy exhaustion, trying to plan out the nursery down to the last perfectly matched detail and coming up with a baby name that’s unique enough to stand out!
“Then, at the time of giving birth the pain mother feels is similar to 20 bones getting fractured at a time.
“Can you imagine the mother’s pain and love?”
Falak added: “I’m convinced that mothers are superheroes because they can handle anything the universe has to throw at them!
“Sarah, you’re not just a mother of my child but also the beat of my heart.
“I promise to love you and protect you and our daughter till the day I die.”
Both Falak and Sarah received hundreds of congratulatory messages from fellow celebrities and netizens alike.
