Mother of Bhim – Who is the Mother of Bheema in the Mahabharata?

Who is the mother Bhim in the Mahabharata? Was Bheema divine born or from a human mother. Story mentioned in the Mahabharat answers as to who is the Mother of Bhim. Queen Kunti was married to Pandu, the prince of Hastinapura. But Pandu could not have sexual union with Kunti because of a curse.

Kunti in her teenage due to her service to Sage Durvasa had got a boon that she will be able to summon a god and have children in him.

Pandu requested Kunti to make use of the boon.

Thus Bheema was born when Kunti summoned Vayu, (the wind god in Hinduism)

The mother of Bhim is Kunti.

Now a question arises as to did Kunti give birth to Bheema or she received him as an infant as a blessing from Yama.

No one has ever bothered to answer this question in the scriptures but it is widely believed that she gave birth to Bhim.
