Bollywood actress, Ileana D'Cruzz is all set to embrace motherhood for the first time in her life. The diva is enjoying every bit of her pregnancy journey and she cannot wait to hold her little munchkin in her arms. For the unversed, the actress broke her pregnancy news to her massive fan base on April 18, 2023. Even though the mom-to-be has not revealed anything about her to-be-born baby's father, she has been sharing some priceless glimpses of this new journey of her life.
On June 23, 2023, the soon-to-be mommy, Ileana D'Cruz hosted an 'Ask Me Anything' session on her Instagram stories, wherein she addressed several queries of her fans. During the session, one of her fans asked her about post-pregnancy weight gain and mentioned, 'U worried u r gonna gain weight?" To this, the soon-to-be mommy revealed that initially, the thought of gaining weight post-pregnancy used to trigger her. However, with time, she accepted it. Ileana also stated that she loved how her body underwent several changes in the past few months. Calling her pregnancy a miraculous journey, she said:
"Ok so this question would initially really trigger me. And I think it's because so many people comment on your weight when you're having a baby. It doesn't help when you go to your doctor checkups and they have to weigh you in every time so it's consistently on your mind. Let me just say, I've loved how my body has changed these past few months. It's such a miraculous, wondrous humbling journey."
Further, in her note, Ileana stated, being a human, she too feels low and worries about her weight gain. However, the actress heaped praises on her loved ones and mentioned how they have been standing like a pillar and supporting her in this journey. She also said that weight does not matter as she is going to give birth to a little human. Elaborating more on it, the soon-to-be mommy stated:
"And yes I'm human and there are days I don't feel great. But I have an amazing support system and people that love me and remind me that I am making a literal little human inside me! So "weight" does not matter. Don't go by what the "ideal amount of weight gain" should be during your pregnancy. Stay as happy as you can. And listen to your body! Do what feels right to you."
For the unversed, it was on June 2, 2023, when Ileana had dropped the first-ever glimpse with her baby's father. She dropped a series of pictures from her babymoon on her IG handle.
