There are sexy ones like Kareena Kapoor, and then there's me: Pregnant Sameera Reddy on body shaming - Free Press Journal
At a recent event, Sameera Reddy voiced her opinion on the trolls slamming newbie moms for gaining weight post pregnancy. Sameera stated that how someone like Kareena can get into shape immediately after giving birth to a child and there are some like her who take their time to get back into shape.
Reddy who is expecting for the second time said, ‘There are sexy ones like Kareena Kapoor who’s come out looking fully hot, and there are people like me who take time (to get back in shape),”
The actress stated that it’s unfortunate and shameful that a woman has to go through body shaming for her pregnancy weight. “I want to ask trollers: ‘Was your mom hot, when you came out?’ It’s shameful. Pregnancy is such a natural process. It’s so beautiful. It took me time to (lose weight) with the first baby. Maybe it’ll take me time with the second baby. But what’s most important is to embrace yourself. And to all trolls: ‘Say what you want guys, I think I have a superpower, I’m giving a birth to a baby.'” said Sameera.
Sameera who last seen in South film Varadhanayaka married husband Akshai in January 2014 in Mumbai. The couple welcomed their first child on May 24, 2015.
