Ever since she announced her second pregnancy, Lisa Haydon has been sharing little insights about her journey on Instagram. Yesterday, she posted something that many mothers-to-be go through, but few choose to talk about it openly. Lisa took to Instagram and posted a few pictures from her gym session. While the actress looked radiant and fit, it was her message that caught everyone's attention. She wrote about body image and how it's okay to take it easy if that's what your body needs.
She captioned the post, "My sister dragged me to the gym today as I’ve had a really lazy pregnancy. Of course I understand being fit can lead to a healthier labour etc.. but I think it’s really important to remember at this stage.. no matter how well I train , I’m only going to get bigger 🤪 Ok, with that in mind , let’s do it. #healthynotskinny".

The message resonated with her fans. While some praised her for taking "fitness to the next level", many called her an "inspiration" for the hashtag that she had used, promoting health over a particular standard of beauty. One comment said, "Such a role model. I really look up to you so much. So gorgeous in that pregnancy glow!!"
This is not the first time that the actress took to social media to showcase her fit lifestyle and passion for work during her pregnancy. From sharing pictures of herself surfing to walking the ramp, Lisa has been keeping her fans in the loop throughout. Take a look at some of these pictures.

Baby waves with my baby bump💙 I was gonna post this as my “coming out” pic. But i thought the joy of another addition to our family belonged to all three of us so that’s what was posted instead. Here is a throwback to being #16weeks pregnant with #2. I wrote this a few weeks ago in answer to lots of questions about exercise when preg and nausea .. since writing this post I haven’t done any exercise 😱or even gone for a walk😱. Lots has been eaten though 🐽🐽🐽 and our baby is so far, so good 😊 and that’s all that matters. This first trimester was rough. Nothing like my first pregnancy... surfing was something I had been doing from before and was disappointed at the thought of having to stop. I checked with my doctor who surprisingly approved and said one should carry on as usual. Of course, with precautions. I tried doing other forms of excersize but, All other excersize would make me feel worse - this was practically my only release (and sucking on a Lemon🍋) to feel better from the intense nausea and also get an adrenaline kick- I mean, it’s a high😛. After doing loads of googling on the subject, I found multiple articles on surfing when pregnant.. and was relieved to know I’m not the only one. Positive, I haven’t got many, if any, pregnant surfers following me , but if I do:-) here’s what I learned and followed. 1.) surf on a foam board (unless modelling for first baby photo. Then pose with hard board;-) ) , 2.) try and paddle on your knees ... I actually felt nothing when paddling on my stomach, so I did. 3.) don’t go out in crazy surf. 4.) listen to your body and to your doctor. This morning I took a moment to appreciate how much better life is feeling moving on from trimester one... another high. Week 16 was my cutoff to stop and so, Until next year baby waves 🌊💞✌️
Lisa had shared a post in August this year with her hubby and two-year-old son Zack Lalvani, as she announced that she is expecting her second child. The caption read, "Party of four on the way". Take a look.
Lisa married entrepreneur Dino Lalvani in 2016 and the couple welcomed their first child in 2017. On the work front, Lisa was last seen in Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. She made her debut in Aisha in 2010 and has promised her fans that she will be back on screen after her pregnancy.
While we can't wait to see Lisa back on the silver screen, we are even more excited for her to deliver a healthy and happy baby soon.
