In 2017, the Kardashian–Jenner sisters Khloe and Kylie both found themselves unexpectedly pregnant at the same time. But always the trendsetters, the duo chose to go around flaunting their baby bumps in tight body-hugging clothes instead of staying home. Even as the world was quick to point fingers at the Kardashians for their ‘desperate attention seeking tactics’ it couldn’t apparently resist the bandwagon effect, with a host of celebrities soon following suit, showing off their baby bumps in tight-fitting clothes.
And when the world is afoot and on trend, how can Bollywood be too far away? So, on they hopped in the bandwagon, too, well… keeping up with the Kardashians, indeed, even though some among them stayed true to the idiosyncrasies associated with the traditional Indian society (where a pregnancy is not revealed before the first trimester is completed, apparently for two main reasons —the fear of miscarriage and the fear of the ‘evil eye’, which could harm them or their baby).
Ironically, though, all that seemed to hold fort among our Tinsel Town ladies only until the Kardashians started flaunting their baby bumps, ‘normalising’ pregnancy. Soon, Bollywood figures including Kareena Kapoor Khan, Anushka Sharma, Mira Rajput, Amrita Rao and Lisa Haydon began making their pregnancies just a little more public, showing their baby bumps in crop-tops and bikinis.
And let’s face it; these yummy mummies and mummies-to-be have been putting up quite the show with their little baby bellies.
Here’s a look at our top five Bollywood mumsies with their bumpsies:
If there was an award for the most active mumsie-to-be, it would have to go to the Pari actress. Recently, she even posted a photo of herself on Instagram, doing one of the toughest yoga postures—the headstand, albeit with enough guidance and support from her coach and hubby dearest. But that right there was fitness goals, you’d agree?
The Main Hoon Na actress was among the few celebs who posted a baby bump picture much after her first trimester. In fact, she flaunted her baby bump during the ninth month of her pregnancy and, might we add, looking just as adorable in her fuchsia sari as she looked in all her movies
