People were blown away recently when it was revealed that actress Gal Gadot was actually, and quite befittingly, pregnant when she filmed her first live-action box office hit, Wonder Woman.
She’s not the only one who sent the world into a frenzy. Earlier this year, Serena Williams also won the Australian Open final while pregnant. Although it’s definitely no walk in the park, these women managed to balance their professional and personal lives successfully and treat their pregnancy as a normal and natural part of daily life. Here are some stories of a few of these amazing women who did just that and looked amazing while doing it.
Back in 2010 Canadian curler Kristie Moore took home a silver medal at the Vancouver Olympics while she was 5 months pregnant.

Kareena Kapoor Khan
Last year Kareena Kapoor began working on her next film, Veere De Wedding when she was 4 months pregnant. She shot some of the character’s pregnant scenes in November when her own baby bump was quite visible and became the first Bollywood celebrity to do a ramp walk as a showstopper at the Lakme Fashion Week plus other shoots as well. Kareena was working up until the very last week of her pregnancy.
