Not only Kareena, but these celeb mums also walked the ramp with their baby bump!
While Kareena Kapoor Khan became the first expecting Bollywood mum to embrace the baby bump in public, she is the not first famous face to do so
If you have been following the news, you'd probably know that mum-to-be Kareena Kapoor Khan recently walked the ramp for designer Sabyasachi at the Lakme Fashion Week.
Gliding through the ramp like a dream, the 35-year-old actor wowed everybody with her elegance and became the first ever member of the Indian film fraternity to walk the ramp with a baby bump.
In fact, she described her experience as "very emotional" and even went on to say, “I must say it’s not one but two of us. It’s a very special moment. I have never walked for Sabyasachi before, we were not able to do a film together. But this moment is very special. It’s going to be in the history. I am actually very emotional right now."
But while the Jab We Met star broke the stereotype and became the first expecting Bollywood mum to embrace the bump in public, she is the not first famous face to do so.
Two other very popular Indian celebrities have walked the ramp flaunting their baby bump.
Pregnant supermodels break the stereotype
Back in April, supermodel and visibly pregnant Carol Gracias walked the ramp with her baby bump, for designer Gaurang Shah during the summer-resort edition of Lakme Fashion Week.

At the time, she became the first Indian model to walk the ramp with a baby bump and was hailed by working women across India.
In fact, she blogged about her experience and wrote, "I didn't think there was anything heroic about showing off my baby bump or going to work with it. Millions of women do it every day, some in manual labour jobs on the streets."
Gracias is a now a proud mum of a baby boy and she even shared the arrival of her newest family member through her Instagram page.
Continue reading to see how Gracias came back to the ramp recently after just six weeks of her delivery and who is this other famous Indian mum to flaunt her baby bump!
Just six weeks after the birth of her son, Gracias was back to the ramp, strutting her stuff for Shah. He even posted a picture of before and after of the model and wrote the sweetest message honouring the supermodel.
The very evident new mom glow on @carolmgracias was a million bucks! During our last show Carol was pregnant and walked the ramp for us. She delivered last month, and once again walked for us. At #Gaurang we like to celebrate the woman at every stage of her life. #LakmeFashionWeek @lakmefashionwk #GaurangShah #Vaya #Womanhood #CelebratingWomen

Another famous face who made a difference
But there was another Indian mum who also contributed in breaking the glass ceiling.
Popular television actor and model Shveta Salve also walked the ramp literally owning the bump and exhibiting so much confidence.
Along with Gracias and 12 other expecting mums, the beautiful Salve walked the ramp for a skincare brand, Bio Oil on the eve of Mother’s Day. It was a truly inspirational sight as all the ladies proudly flaunted their baby bumps.

As motivating as these events were, they also send across a clear and strong message- shed all inhibitions and proudly flaunt your bumps!

Although, this may not be true for everybody, but for most of us expecting mums, these qualities are certainly big morale boosters!
