Shalini Ajith Kumar
A child artist who set audiences wowing right from her first film, Shalini later made a great debut as a heroine as well and swiftly earned a name for herself as an actress to be noticed.
Her marriage, however -- the result of romance with actor Ajith -- came as a pleasant surprise. They married in 2000, and have a daughter, Anoushka.

She made waves, both as an actress par excellence, with her sensible, mature characters -- and a quirky side as well, with a chartbuster song called Lajjavathiye.
She married Ajilesh Chacko in 2008, and settled quite happily in Ireland, before returning to movies. The couple has a daughter, Amy.
A talented dancer, Manju Warrier made sure that her acting chops made it to the fore as well, with a slew of acclaimed Malayalam films. So well appreciated was her strong performance that she won the National Film Award -- Special Jury Award for her last film.She fell in love with another actor, Dileep, and married him in 1998. Their daughter is Meenakshi.

Although slightly older than the rest of the young mums here, she is no lesser than them, when it comes to hotness quotient. Ramya Krishnan has been the quintessential sensual girl for quite a while -- and marriage to acclaimed Telugu director Krishna Vamsi didn't do anything to tarnish it.
The couple married in 2003 and has a son, Ritwik.
