India is a country where people think a woman who is pregnant should not work. Thanks to the age-old belief of "nazar lag jayegi" or maybe because of some authoritative family members who want the expecting woman to rest for nine months. Adding to this, some debate that this is better for the mother-to-be because she will be safe at home.
However, not all the moms-to-be are like that. Some just love their new glow and want to flaunt it and have a good time even in those nine months. Sitting at home is definitely not an option for them, which inspires a lot of women around them. Take a look at these celebrities who choose not to sit at home and flaunt their beautiful baby bumps and glow of pregnancy-
Aishwarya Rai's wedding to Abhishek Bachchan was the talk of the town in the year 2007. After all, she was getting married to Amitabh Bachchan's son. Even her pregnancy made the headlines in the year 2011. And of course there were controversies. She was slammed by the media for being 'overweight.' Are people that stupid and shameless to call a pregnant woman overweight?
She was fat-shammed even after delivering her daughter Aaradhya. Where did their senses go, really?
The truth is, she looked stunning during her pregnancy and even after that. Her confidence and not-giving-a-damn attitude was an icing on the cake. Talking about Aaradhya, she is just like her gorgeous mommy when it comes to striking a pose for the paparazzi.
When Lara Dutta was pregnant, she did not shy away from the paparazzi. She was photographed with her baby bump on several occasions. On her baby shower, she opted for a pink wrap-around dress to add to the pink of her pregnancy glow. Doesn't she look excited about welcoming her baby daughter?
Her daughter Saira is now 5 years old and looks adorable.
Lisa Haydon enjoyed her pregnancy to the fullest. Her Instagram account is flooded with photographs where she can be seen vacationing and partying. She travelled to exotic destinations and looked really beautiful as well. She welcomed her son Zack Lalvani on May 17, 2017.
Celina, a mother of twin boys, was reported to be pregnant with the second set of twins in 2017. During her pregnancy, she posted a picture of her lying in the bathtub condemning the stereotypes around pregnant women and their bodies. The response to that photograph was both positive and negative.
Unfortunately, one of her twins passed away after birth. We know that she is a strong lady and are sending good wishes her way.
Talking about pregnancy, we cannot miss Kareena Kapoor Khan or Bebo, who definitely slayed it. Kareena went around B-town sporting her beautiful bump, attending parties with a beautiful glow on her face. She was giving the paparazzi what they wanted from her, a style statement. Following his mother's footsteps is baby Taimur Ali Khan, who arrived in this world on December 20, 2016.
Genelia and Riteish Deshmukh are one of the most adorable couples of B-town and have two handsome sons Riaan and Rahyl. The couple often posts their cute pictures on their respective Instagram accounts. We wish them all the luck because, well, two boys can be a handful!
Carol Gracias, a successful Indian supermodel who was also seen on Bigg Boss season 1, flaunted her bump for the first time on the ramp and people were swooning over her. We saw her walk for Gaurang Shah with confidence. It quickly became a thing and people started noticing and appreciating her for empowering pregnant women. She welcomed her son Gabriel in July 2016.
When Shahid Kapoor's wife Mira Rajput was pregnant, his Instagram posts were all about her. According to reports, Mira Rajput had a tough pregnancy for the first five months which later got better. Her glow can be seen in the pictures Shahid posted. She gave birth to their daughter Misha on October 26, 2016.
Soha Ali Khan and Kunal Khemu were expecting their first child and as you can see in the photograph above, they were very happy about it. Soha was often seen sporting floral dresses and tied her hair in buns looking like a Disney princess with a glow on her face. They welcomed their daughter Inaaya Naumi Kemmu in 2017.
Asin chose to keep her pregnancy away from the limelight. We wonder how she managed that? Although we were happy to know about her daughter's arrival on October 24, 2017, we still wished she would have come out in public to flaunt that gorgeous pregnancy glow.
Last year, MTV VJ Rannvijay Singh Singhaa and wife Prianka were expecting their first child, which the VJ-actor decided to capture in beautiful photographs. Probably she wasn't papped much because she was in London during her pregnancy. Although, there were adorable pictures posted by Rannvijay kissing his wife's belly, that gave us a glimpse of pretty Prianka. How cute! They welcomed their baby daughter Kainaat in the first month of 2017.
TV actor Karanvir Bohra and his wife Teejay Sidhu were expecting twins, and Teejay took all the liberty to enjoy her days of pregnancy. Her baby shower had the theme "fall weather" where she looked radiating. The twins, Vienna and Raya Bella were welcomed in the world on October 21, 2016. Their pictures took the Internet by storm with the world talking about how adorable they both were.
Arpita Khan, Salman Khan's sister was married to Aayush Sharma in a fairytale wedding. Arpita has often been the subject of public shaming where people criticised her for her looks, weight, complexion and what not. She never paid heed to all these haters until one day where she lashed out at them through an Instagram post. She was constantly on the move while being pregnant. Soon her adorable son, Ahil Sharma arrived and is his mamu's favourite. Lucky Ahil, and Arpita, you go girl!
Although most Bollywood stars were out and about during their pregnancy, Shilpa Shetty was different. She did not get out of the house for seven months feeling insecure about her weight. Although she was spotted by the paparazzi during the later stage of pregnancy, we wonder why she was so hesitant to flaunt her baby bump. She gave birth to her son Viaan on May 21, 2012. Well, we hope she does not care about all this if she gets pregnant again.
Geeta Basra and Harbhajan Singh's daughter Hinaya Heer Plaha was born on July 27, 2016. The couple hid the pregnancy till Geeta's baby shower. However, rumour mills were abuzz way before that.
