The Main Ho Naa actress adopted a baby girl named Renee in 2000. She later adopted Alisah in 2010. The actress has time and again said that adopting two daughters was one of the wisest decisions of her life. Recently, speaking to IANS, she said, "In the (case of) natural birth, mother and child connect through the umbilical cord but in adoption, the mother and the child are connected by this higher power, a connection that you cannot cut off. I have had the privilege of experiencing it twice. To become a mother who has given birth from the heart. I have not missed a day of feeling the joy of motherhood."

According to Sushmita, motherhood has stabilised her life. "The wisest decision I made at the age of 24 was to become a mother. It stabilised my life. People think it was a great act of charity and wonderful action but it was self-preservation. It was me protecting myself," she added.

On the personal front, she is currently dating fashion model Rohman Shawl. The duo met at a fashion show and the couple has been romancing each other ever since. From celebrating each other's birthdays with their families to Rohman spending time with Sen's daughters, to training together, the duo seemed to be going strong.
