When a woman becomes pregnant, she is flooded with all sorts of advice. What to do and what not to do are things she hears from her near and dear ones on a daily basis. It’s not all bad because these things are coming from a place of love, and, naturally, people around you want the best for you. While some people say you have to stay away from unhealthy food, others tell you to get a good night’s sleep. Some others ask you to change your lifestyle into something healthier and include a good workout routine daily. But you might be skeptical about working out while you’re pregnant. While it’s essential to be cautious and know what exercises are good or bad for you during your pregnancy, there is no need to cut it out of your life completely.
Several B-town actresses like Anushka Sharma, Shilpa Shetty, and Kareena Kapoor have made fitness a regular part of their pregnancy journey to keep themselves filled with endorphins, minimize common symptoms of pregnancy, and have a faster postpartum recovery. Dia Mirza is also one such actress who took to her Instagram story to share glimpses of her pregnancy workout, inspiring several to-be moms who are experiencing the same journey. It’s an eye-opener to every pregnant mom-to-be who believes that they should avoid exercise during pregnancy. The truth is, as long as your doctor has given you the green light on your exercise schedule and routine, it’s absolutely great if you follow it. Exercising during pregnancy aids in healthy weight gain, reduces back pain, strengthens your heart and blood vessels, and helps you lose the baby weight after delivery (1).
On February 15th, 2021, Dia Mirza married Vaibhav Rekhi, a Mumbai-based businessman. She shared pictures of this beautiful day on Instagram, which reminded every fairytale lover who has forgotten about the magic of love that a happily-ever-after does exist. Dia donned a stunning traditional red saree and looked nothing short of a princess. The two of them set off on their honeymoon to the Maldives and have been living their best lives in paradise.
A few days earlier, Dia Mirza announced her pregnancy by sharing a picture of herself in the Maldives during sunset. She wrote, “Blessed to cradle this purest of all dreams in my womb”, and expressed how she felt blessed to be one with Mother Earth and one with the life force that is the beginning of everything. The former Miss Asia Pacific has been taking her fans through her pregnancy journey through her Instagram, and recently her stories showed a time-lapse video of her TRX workout at home. She was being guided by her fitness trainer Rasal and was working out to the song Don’t Stop Me Now playing in the background. Did you catch the workout video in her story?
After Dia Mirza announced her pregnancy, she was trolled on the internet. While many celebrities congratulated her on the news, including Priyanka Chopra, Konkona Sen Sharma, and Gauahar Khan, several internet trolls made hurtful comments and bashful memes about her. But Dia stood firm and expressed how it’s the happiest news of her life and how she waited years for this to happen so she wouldn’t want to hide it for any reason.
Two days ago, the actress also posted a picture of several dolphins swimming in the water. She expressed in her caption how it brought her so much joy and peace to look at the video. Dia stated that she was having a rough day, and the video helped lift her spirits. Dia Mirza has been an inspiration to many, and she continues to be.
