In her first interview after welcoming her son, Sonam opened up about her pregnancy looks and some of the negative reactions she has received. The actor said that she understands that she leads a very privileged life and doesn’t think trolling should be seen as a big issue for her.
She explained to Vogue, “I feel like what I grew up with is reacting to things I don’t need to react to. Thankfully, a lot of it has come with age, but It’s also because I understand that I live a very attractive life. I come from a place of extreme privilege and I really have nothing to complain about, so if someone says something negative about me from behind the keyboard saying, then it’s not really of my use.”
The actor added, “If I do something today to celebrate my body and my womanhood, it shouldn’t be a surprise. I have always been a part of public discussion on issues like dark circles, PCOS, weight gain and I’ve been the person to do stretch marks.”
Sonam tied the knot with Anand Ahuja in Mumbai in May 2018. He announced the arrival of his baby on Saturday via Instagram. His post read, “On 20.08.2022, we welcomed our beautiful baby boy with a bowed head. Thank you to all the doctors, nurses, friends and family who have supported us on this journey. This is only the beginning but we know our lives have been changed forever…” Sonam recently took a look at some of the gifts she gave to her newborn son. She shared a video which shows an embroidered green blanket emblazoned with ‘Baby Ke Ahuja’.
