It was only the other day that I was praising Bryce Dallas Howard for not succumbing to the pressure of losing her baby weight, and now I’m faced with a new story that makes me even more angry.
Miss World 1994 and Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been accused of betraying her country after failing to lose her baby weight seven months after giving birth.
Are these people being serious? When I think of betraying my country, I think along the lines of feeding intel to the Russians or joining Al Qaeda, not gaining a few pounds during pregnancy.
Just because she is a superstar does not mean it’s any easier for her to lose weight, nor does it mean that she should have to lose the weight.
She says that she is just enjoying being a mother, they say she needs to take inspiration from Victoria Beckham.
I think it’s fair to say that these people are deluded if they think that your image should come before being a good mother.
