Bollywood actresses who showed off their baby bump publicly

In a few months a new actress will join the league of celebrity moms of Bollywood of her generation. Rani Mukherji who got married to producer-director Aditya Chopra in a private ceremony earlier this year is said to be pregnant with her first child. The baby is reportedly due in January next year. The ‘Mardaani’ actress has been keeping away from media glare for some time. In July, the couple had travelled to London where Rani was spotted getting a pre-natal massage at a spa. The actress was also seen visiting a gynaecologist along with her husband. She is currently in the UK as the couple want to avoid public gaze.

Salman Khan’s sister Arpita who tied the knot with her boyfriend Ayush Sharma is also said to be expecting. The reports started doing the rounds a few days ago when she was seen apparently hiding a baby bump in the pictures and videos of Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations at the Khan residence.

While some celebs prefer to keep away from public view as media can be sometimes cruel to the bodily changes that one goes through during pregnancy, there are others who do not shy away from flaunting their pregnant figures. They proudly show off their baby bumps, and look every bit stylish and glamorous.

Lara Dutta

The former Miss Universe is married to tennis star Mahesh Bhupati and the couple has a three-year-old daughter. Lara didn’t give up on her social life and continued to make public appearance when she was pregnant. She looked glamorous in her fitted knee-length skirts and well-tailored maternity clothing. She even walked the ramp as a showstopper flaunting her baby bump. Lara also endorsed prenatal yoga during her pregnancy.

Konkona Sen Sharma

Konkona Sen Sharma is a mother of four-year-old Haroon with her estranged husband Ranvir Shorey. This acclaimed actress did what no Bollywood celebrity did. She went the Hollywood way and posed for the cover of celebrity magazine OK! with her bare bump when she was heavily pregnant. She looked beautiful with the glow of a new would-be mother.

Shilpa Shetty Kundra

This yummy mommy of Bollywood is a mother to her three-year-old son Vivaan. Actress-turned-entrepreneur Shilpa Shetty is known to practice yoga to keep fit. Her growing baby bump during pregnancy did not deter her from attending parties, events and other social functions. She also attended the meetings of her IPL cricket team Rajasthan Royals. Shilpa was spotted in jeans and shirts, colourful anarkalis and off-shoulder dresses too.

Genelia D’Souza

Genelia D’Souza who married her ‘Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya’ co-star Riteish Deshmukh delivered a baby boy in November last year. When she was carrying the couple’s child Riaan, she made red carpet appearance and attended Zee Cine Awards. She also attended movie screenings and audio launch of her husband’s Marathi film. She was also spotted at the wedding of Salman Khan’s sister Arpita. She dressed impressively in cotton tops and pants and beautiful anarkali suits.

Amrita Arora

Model-actress Amrita Arora and her businessman husband Shakeel Ladak have two sons. During both pregnancies she did not hide herself and continued to make public appearances. She too, like Lara Dutta, wore everything from short fitted dress with heels to off-shoulder gowns. She attended her friend Kareena Kapoor’s wedding when she was heavily pregnant in her third trimester during her second pregnancy.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has always been a very private person, but she too gave a glimpse of her baby bump on a few occasions when she was pregnant with her daughter Aaradhya. She was spotted in jeans and a baggy top with her mother Brinda Rai. She wore a pink sari to attend Durga puja and was also seen with mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan in an off-white salwar kameez.
