Princess was a Beagle and well-loved by all her family members for more than 12 years they were all together. Shilpa's sister Shamita Shetty responding to her post commented, "Rip our lil princess💔💔", with fans as well expressing their condolences for the actress' personal loss. Shilpa is known to be an animal lover and had earlier gifted a Poodle puppy named Truffle to her son Viaan Raj. The actress also has a beige Himalayan Persian cat, Simba, which she has featured in several videos along with her other beloved pets. It is to be noted that Shilpa had a few years back nursed a parrot back to health after it fell out of its nest. Naming it Poppy, the star had nurtured it before it was ready to fly back. 

Earlier this week, Shilpa Shetty celebrated her daughter Samisha’s second birthday, which saw her aunt Shamita and her boyfriend and Bigg Boss OTT fame Raqesh Bapat grace the occasion. On the work front, Shilpa is serving as a judge in the ongoing season of India’s Got Talent alongside Kirron Kher, Badshah and Manoj Muntashir.
