International Bump Watch, Models Editon: Bar Refaeli & Behati Prinsloo



Namibian model Behati Prinsloo and Israeli model Bar Refaeli gave their millions of followers in social media another glimpse of their growing baby bumps.

Both Victoria Secret models are expecting their first child.

Prinsloo, who is married to hunky Adam Levine, posted a photo on Instagram of her bump in the bath.

She captioned it with the whale emoji. ?

Israeli model Bar Refaeli also posted her baby bump also via Instagram on Sunday. Shown relaxing in a pool she wrote,

“You can come out now…I’m ready. And heavy.”

This will be her first child with husband Adi Ezra.

Neither can they be characterized as heavy or a whale in any shape or form but that is okay. That is what we women do when we are feeling the pressure or weight gain while pregnant.

Throw out self-deprecating humor. It’s human nature. * le sigh *

I love it when I notice other regions of the world that also have active movie celebrity culture engage in bump watch. It proves we are not the only ones out here obsessed with the incubation of the next generation of stars.

This time, I spotted Information Nigerias coverage of second time mom-to-be and Nollywood  actress Mary Remmy Njoku at the London premiere of her latest project.

The co-star to the latest film project by noted Nigerian film maker Obi Emolynyre wore a fuchsia halter dress with white beaded adornment in the bodice of the empire waist chiffon dress. Her loose ringlets were a great accompaniment to the formal look.

Njoku’s co-star Mercy Johnson, who we covered also while pregnant a couple years ago, walked the red carpet too.

International Bump Watch: Bollywood’s Sameera Reddy at the airport

The bump watch phenomenon isn’t unique to the United States and Western nations. Nope, anywhere there is an active movie and music industry (Nigeria, South Africa, India, Phillipines, Pakistan, etc), there is a corps of celebrities who get married and have babies.
The buzz this weekend was about a sighting of Bollywood actress Sameera Reddy being spotted at the airport recently.
The starlet, who married entrepreneur Akshai Varde in a very private wedding last January 2014, has been keeping low key, according to Indian gossip blogs.  
Sameera was last seen onscreen in the Kannada film Varadhanayaka, but remained private and cautious about the pregnancy, and is staying off radar for a spell. 
She looked cool, stylish and comfy in a striped t-shirt, framed with a black cardigan and worn with black tights and ballet flats. That’s the perfect airport and pregnant lady look, if you ask us.

International Bump Watch: Pakistani actress Sarwat Gilani Pakistan Fashion Week bump

 

“Bump Watching” isn’t a uniquely American phenomenon. 

This weekend all eyes were on model-turned-actress Sarwat Gilani during Pakistan Fashion Week who appeared on stage at the Toni & Guy “Hair Meets Fashion” show sporting a visible bump in a shimmering sequined mini sheath dress and black shawl.
Gilani, who has starred in a string of Pakistani TV dramas and her actor husband of just three months Fahad Mirza are expecting their first child together. 
Mirza said she will not let the pregnancy derail her career. 
We blogged a bit in the past how Bollywood actress and former Time magazine’s Most Beautiful Woman in the World  Aishwarya Rai Bachachan‘s pregnancy led a lot of film producers to talk about inserting a no-pregnancy clause in casting contracts with female actors. 
“I will continue working after having a baby,” Gilani told Dawn.com .“The world doesn’t stop when you become a mother.”
Good for you, mama! Congrats!
