Actress Shilpa Shetty who is the mother of two beautiful kids, son Viaan and newly born baby girl, Samisha via surrogacy, revealed being body-shamed post her son’s birth. Shilpa gave birth to Viaan in the year 2012, and the actress had back then gained double the weight than she thought. The actress weighed 32 kilos more than her actual weight when she was carrying her son Viaan. Post the delivery she gained 2 more kilos which left her shocked.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, she revealed being body-shamed by a group of women when she first stepped out for a dinner after Viaan’s birth. Observing her and smirking at her, their comments on her post-delivery body left her with heartache. She was quoted saying, “I had put on 32 kilos during my pregnancy. Ideally, I thought I'd gain around 15 kilos but I had double that weight. And after delivering Viaan, I put on two more kilos which was ridiculous. I don't know how I did that.”
Narrating the incident of her being body shamed, she said, “So I remember this one incident when I went out with Raj for dinner for the first time after having Viaan. We walked in and there was this group of women at a kitty sitting and smirking at me. I could hear them say, "Is that Shilpa Shetty? She still has weight! It was absolutely heartless.”
However, not being bogged down she pitted the mentality of such people, sharing further she said, “Who are these people anyway? I would also like to see how they look when they get pregnant. It's easy to comment.” ALSO READ: Happy Mother's Day 2020: Shilpa Shetty’s Son Viaan Waited For A Younger Sister For Three Years, Reveals The New Mom
