She is bold, she is talented, and she is a boss lady. She is Bipasha Basu Grover! As the former model turns a year older today, we are here to laud her for being a taboo-breaker and a change-maker, and for sharing her thoughts on self-love and care without any inhibitions. From having a baby after the age of 40 and breaking age-old stereotypes by posting a video of breastfeeding her daughter, actor Bipasha Basu is unafraid to show her raw and unfiltered self to the world, and that is something we should all learn from her.
Getting Pregnant After The Age Of 40
Ever since the actor announced her pregnancy on social media, she ensured to share her pregnancy journey with her fans, and flaunt her beautiful baby bump in a series of posts. Despite undergoing various bodily changes, Bipasha didn’t let go of her self-love mantra and championed body positivity and being confident about gaining weight. In fact, in one of her Instagram posts, the actor described pregnancy as, “A magical feeling, difficult to describe in words!”
Speaking about the time when she got to know about her pregnancy, Bipasha told a leading news daily, “It was a really emotional day! I remember me and Karan ran to my mother’s house just the way we were because she was the first person I wanted to tell. Everyone was emotional. It was my mom’s dream that Karan and I had a baby. I always had faith we will, and it happened.”
Breaking Stereotypes Around Breastfeeding
The actor who recently embraced parenthood with her partner Karan Singh Grover is yet to share a close-up picture of her daughter Devi, but she makes sure to keep her fans updated with partial glimpses of her little one. For instance, Bipasha recently shared a video of her breastfeeding her daughter, and captioned it, “Mornings with my heart Devi!” With this single video, the actor broke the stigma around breastfeeding and initiated a positive conversation about the topic.
It’s safe to say that Bipasha has joined with other Bollywood mums like Neha Dhupia and Lisa Haydon who have open conversations about breastfeeding and creating a safe space for mums to nurse their little ones whenever needed, even in public spaces.
Celebrating Baby Devi’s One Month Birthday
The actor’s daughter turned a month old on December 12, 2022, and the new parents celebrated this occasion by cutting a cake for their little princess. Bipasha took to Instagram to share an adorable video of her and her partner Karan cutting a cake in honour of their little one’s first birthday. She captioned the video, “And just like that Devi is one month old. Thank you everyone for sending Devi your love and blessings. We are very grateful.”
Here’s wishing the wonderful Bipasha Basu a very Happy Birthday again! We thank her for inspiring millions of mums worldwide and taking a step toward breaking the taboo around breastfeeding. Also, we hope she keeps spoiling us with glimpses of little Devi in the future as well.
