Ankita Konwar, the wife to model-actor Milind Soman, has opened up about her past trauma.

In a Reel she lip-syncs to a person crediting trauma to make them wise beyond their years; “It’s trauma, baby!”

In the caption she jotted down all she has battled over the years and how it keeps her joyous now; “Abused as a child, Grew up in hostels, Lived in foreign cities alone, Cheated by people I trusted most. Lost a brother, Lost ex lover, Lost my father. Being called names for the way I look and judged for being with the person I love. So if you see me being optimistic, just know that I am! Love yourself. #loveyourself #feelitreelit #keepingitreal.”

“You’ve come a long way, baby,” wrote her husband Milind Soman, along with a heart-eyes emoji.

Soman and Konwar got married back in 2018. Their relationship has often been under scrutiny over their age difference; he is 26 years her senior.

In an interview with Humans Of Bombay, Ankita Konwar had spoken about how she found love again with Milind, when she was still reeling from the loss of her ex-boyfriend. “I decided to move out of the country & started working with Air Asia, as a cabin crew in Malaysia. It was at that time that my then-boyfriend suddenly passed away. It was heartbreaking–it felt like there was no coming back. A couple of months later, I got posted in Chennai. I was staying in a hotel with my colleagues. Once, in the lobby, I saw a tall, rugged man. It was Milind Soman! I was a big fan! So I went to say hello, but he was busy. A few days later, I saw him again at the hotel’s nightclub.”

They were attracted to each other at first sight, and they both kept ‘looking at each other’. Finally, her friends pushed her to go and dance with him, and she did. She took her time in falling in love, though.

“But I still couldn’t bring myself to get fully involved. Until one day, I told him that because of my past, with my boyfriend, there was a part of me that couldn’t let go. To which he said, ‘When I fell in love with you, I fell in love with all of you. Even the part that carries the burden of your past. So don’t be afraid, we’re in this together.’ That’s when I knew–this was the man for me!” she told the Instagram page.
