Aishwarya Rai Bachchan More 'Normal' Than Beyonce and Konnie Huq

A few days after I wrote last week’s piece on slimming down for summer, I read an article about the weight gain of one of the most beautiful women in the world; Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

Aishwarya is a former Miss World-turned-Bollywood-actress who’s provoked an international debate about her supposed ‘unwillingness‘ to lose the extra weight she put on as a consequence of giving birth to her first child six months ago.

An example of the kind of comments people made can be seen in the Youtube clip entitledAishwarya’s Shocking Weight Gain’ above.

To me, she looks like a normal 38-year-old woman who has recently had a baby.

The other extreme is the likes of Beyonce and, more recently, presenter Konnie Huq who both stepped out looking sensational less than a month after giving birth.

A month after I gave birth to both my kids, I was a gibbering, sleep-deprived, overweight wreck And so were all of the other ‘normal’ mums I know.

The old saying goes ‘nine months on, nine months off’ and I think that’s a more realistic target of when to shed the baby weight; it took me almost a year to get rid of the two stone I put on during each pregnancy.

It’s every new mother’s right to spend the first three months bonding with their baby whilst still wearing maternity clothes and eating whatever the hell they want in order to cope with gruelling night feeds, not torturing themselves looking at pictures of Beyonce in swimwear.
