Once, pregnancy and motherhood were private matters. Women did not talk about them much. But now, in the age of social media and openness, there’s a new frankness in the air. Mothers and mums-to-be frequently write about their changing bodies and their views on bringing up children.
Meet eight celebs who flaunt their mommyhood.
- Shveta Salve – The actress is currently 40 weeks pregnant, and she is completely open about the changes in her body, posting pictures of herself almost every day on Instagram. A few days ago, she even bared it all in an article she wrote for a website called Pyjama People saying ”Your mamma is as ready as she can be!”
- Twinkle Khanna – Writing under the pseudonym Mrs Funnybones, her weekly column is about life in general, but she frequently talks about her daughter and her ‘prodigal son’. The former actress is open about her life and motherhood, and hilarious to boot.
