We are mostly shown the bright and beautiful side of pregnancy or motherhood. We are made to believe that pregnancy is a nine-month blissful journey. While for some motherhood may be magical, for others it can get difficult. The truth is that a woman’s body undergoes a massive transformation during pregnancy and it’s not all a walk in the park. In the last few years, a few actresses have opened up about the challenges they faced when they were expecting. Recently, new mom, Kajal Aggarwal spoke about the physical and emotional changes that she faced during her pregnancy. The actress shared that her husband Gautam Kitchlu was her rock during her pregnancy.
Kajal said, “My early trimester was difficult… I had a lot of nausea. And every time I woke up to throw up, he (Gautam) would also wake up and follow me till the bathroom. He always tried to ease and comfort me in whatever way he could. He also accompanied me for every visit I made to my doctor. He dealt with it all so well.”
The Singham star added, “Gautam is a wonderful father. He is just so involved and so proactive when it comes to taking care of the baby.”
This is not the first time that Kajal has spoken about her pregnancy journey. Earlier this month on the occasion of Mother’s Day, the actress penned a note talking about the joys of being a mom and shared a picture of her son Neil. She wrote, “Dearest Neil, My first. I want you to know how precious you are and always will be to me. The moment I held you in my arms, held your tiny little hand in mine, felt your warm breath and saw your beautiful eyes, I knew I was in love forever. You are my first child. My first son. My first everything, really.”
We are glad that Kajal opened up on the challenging phases of her pregnancy as it gives new moms-to-be a realistic take on the nine-month journey. Now, the only thing we ask from her is more pictures with baby Neil ‘coz we can’t get enough of that little munchkin.
