Apart from the morning sickness, nausea and the fact that your wardrobe doesn’t fit you anymore, the bright side of conceiving a baby is you get a lot of pampering, you can guilt-free binge on food and you get to flaunt the gorgeous hair and pregnancy face glow! Lucky are the women, who get to relive the nine-months journey more than once in their lives and netizens feel that Bachchan pariwar ki bahu, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is experiencing it for the second time.

It was on April 20, 2007, when Aishwarya Rai had added the surname ‘Bachchan’ to her name after tying the knot with the love of her life, Abhishek Bachchan. 4 years into married life, Abhishek and Aishwarya became proud parents to a baby girl on November 16, 2011, whom they had named Aaradhya Bachchan. The elated daddy had then announced the arrival of their angel and had tweeted, "Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. Both Aishwarya and the baby are doing great and taking some much-needed rest. And I’m trying my level best to get rid of this caffeine high and get some sleep too. Don’t think it’ll work. TOO EXCITED."
Every now and then, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan are surrounded with the conjectures of her second pregnancy and November 10, 2019, was no different! Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani had hosted a pre-wedding bash for his sister, Nina Kothari’s daughter, Nayantara Kothari on November 10, 2019, and crème de la crème of the society had turned up in their fashionable best. Aishwarya had too made a hand-in-hand appearance with her hubby, Abhishek and the lovebirds had looked like a match-made-in-heaven together!
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had looked like an epitome of grace and elegance in a beautiful pitch red floor-length ensemble by Sabyasachi Mukherjee. Aishwarya complemented her flowy anarkali, churidaar and a red dupatta with signature poker straight hair, filled in brows, red lips and golden peep toe heels. Abhishek Bachchan had looked dapper in a black coloured suit and flaunted his moustache look. However, Aishwarya’s front-draped dupatta didn’t go well with the netizens as they thought that she was trying to hide her baby bump. The social media users speculated Aishwarya to be pregnant and one of the comments could be read as "Is she pregnant or her lace in the dupatta is heavy?"
It was in March 2019 when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan were holidaying in Goa and a candid picture of the lovebirds taking a walk at the Benaulim Beach was posted by The Goan Everyday. As soon as the picture had gone viral on the internet, netizens had started speculating Aishwarya to be pregnant. Aishwarya had donned a grey cami top which she had paired with shorts, and a slight bump on her belly was enough for the gossip mills to churn the speculations. Although in an interview with BollywoodLife, the spokesperson of Bachchans had refuted the reports and had blamed it on the wrong camera angle.

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was also trolled for her post-pregnancy weight gain and in an interview with Rajeev Masand, she had addressed the body-shaming issue and had said, “It’s not just been post motherhood. Contextually, post motherhood, you are referring to specifically body shaming. Because you are looking at it from that aspect of the body frame changing. I am talking about the reason I was able to handle it because I have faced judgement for so long.”
Emphasising the fact that she has always fought with judgement and assumptions, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had continued, “It makes me smile how in a lot of articles they have the written words say ‘Oh! She has the fairy tale life’. Yes, I have had a lot of blessings and I am very very grateful for that. But how do you assume? How and what basis do you assume? This again brings that down to judgement. Because of the way you choose to look at something, you decide its cakewalk.” (Also Read: Shah Rukh Khan And Gauri Khan Recall Their Firstborn, Aryan Khan's Caesarean Birth Story [THROWBACK])
