It was only last month that the news of Celina Jaitly expecting twins with husband Peter Haag came out. The 35-year-old actor, who is already a mother to five-year-old twin sons, is due in October this year.
And after making the big revelation, Celina recently shared a picture with Instagram, where she can be seen flaunting her baby bump in a bikini.
Along with the photo of her on a beach, she shared a heartfelt message with the entertainment website. She said, “This is a picture clicked by my beloved life partner Peter Haag on our recent family trip to the beach. These kind of pictures, I guess, are more valuable to share because these pictures have such a beautiful story behind them. They are done without any of the regular entourages and makeup team s and fanfare. These are pictures of a family experience and I’m so happy that I’ll be sharing the same with my friends and fans. Spending time with your family is one of the best things that you can do, enjoying what mother nature has to offer and simple things give you more pleasure in life than anything else.”
She added that people might troll her for sharing a pregnancy picture in a bikini, but she has a reason. “My reason to share this picture in a bikini during my pregnancy is because I believe it is very important to break the stereotypes associated, with pregnancy specially when it comes to us – Indian women. What I learnt so far in two twin pregnancies is to trust our body by finding exercises and food which nourishes both our body and our soul with the realisation of the fact that beauty, health and strength come in all sizes. Now, my second pregnancy has further elevated the feeling to a thousand levels more for the joys of motherhood of the last 5 years made me feel loved, complete and not judged at all. So despite the not so glamorous impacts that come along with the blessings of a twin pregnancy on ones body, it was very important for me to be a role model who radiates confidence, self-respect and friendliness for other adults and children in our size-oriented society that also believes in preconceived stereotypes about how pregnant Indian women should conduct themselves and their pregnancies. The lives inside of me also prompt “me” to grow, to evolve and to experience this human journey with positivity and gratitude and be proud of what my body is capable of doing,” she added.
