Baby season is back in Bollywood as Anushka Sharma and Kareena Kapoor Khan announced the arrival of their bundle of joys this month. A source informed ETimes that Anushka had kept her pregnancy a well guarded secret and announced it only when she was ready, while Bebo was also keeping her second baby a hush-hush affair. Here’s taking a look at how Bollywood actresses have in the past been tight lipped about their pregnancies.
For the longest time Anushka Sharma has faced pregnancy rumours. However, using lockdown to her advantage, the actress made sure that her pregnancy was a secret. A source had informed ETimes, “Anushka has always been a very private person. She takes her personal space very seriously. So she was extremely careful about not letting anyone see her or get any information about her pregnancy. The immediate families knew of it but they had to swear to secrecy and ensure that no one out of their group got a whiff of it.” Anushka and Virat are expecting to welcome their baby in January 2021.

03/5Kareena Kapoor Khan
Soon after the lockdown norms were eased, Kareena Kapoor Khan was snapped by the paparazzi about town. However the actress expertly hit her baby bump in flowy ensembles. However, once the word was out, Bebo and Saif Ali Khan issued a statement announcing the arrival of their second baby, “We are very pleased to announce that we are expecting an addition to our family!! Thank you to all our well wishers for all their love and support.” Incidentally the couple had to make this official announcement on Sara Ali Khan’s birthday.
Asin’s pregnancy was one of the best kept secrets of Bollywood. Nobody had a clue that the actress was expecting her first baby until she and her husband Rahul Sharma announced the same in 2017, “We are ecstatic to announce the arrival of our angelic Baby Girl earlier today. The last 9 months have been most special and exciting for the both of us and We would like to thank all our well wishers and everyone who has been part of our journey for all their love and support.”
