The leggy model, Carol Gracias, broke the Internet with her baby bump as she walked the ramp for the Lakme Fashion Week. Kudos to her

Indian supermodel, Carol Gracias, has set a new precedence for modern and working expecting mothers.

It was for the first time that a visibly pregnant model was seen flaunting her baby bump and Gracias who is six months pregnant, laid the foundation for change as she walked (the ramp) for designer Gaurang Shah, on the second day of the summer-resort edition of Lakme Fashion Week.

In fact, it was Shah who posted a photograph of the heavily pregnant Gracias on his official Instagram page soon after the show.

This is how he titled the post, "Mom to be @carolmgraciaswalking for #GaurangShah at@lakmefashionwk. #Gaurang #LakmeFashionWeek#momtobe #carolgracias."

The beautiful Gracias was seen walking down to a Manasi Scott song in a green and pink saree. But it was her confidence and her glowing face that stole the limelight, and hopefully started a new trend.

Shah posted another picture of the model and had the Internet abuzz with lauding congratulatory comments for both, Gracias and Shah.

In 2013, the leggy model had tied the knot with long-time boyfriend, Samuel Ziza. The wedding was reportedly a Goan Catholic traditional affair at the Ashvem Beach in Goa. Ziza earlier worked as a journalist and is from Paris. The couple are also business partners and run an online venture called WittyGift.

Take a bow Gaurang Shah and well done Gracias!

And that's #GaurangShah taking a bow! #LakmeFashionWeek #Gaurang #Calico
