Is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan trying to become pregnant again? Some comments by Bollywood gossip writer Rajeev Masand have set tongues wagging about the possibility that Aishwaryamight be expecting another baby.
What’s the evidence for this rumor? The first bit is admittedly suspect: Aishwarya has obviously struggled with her weight since giving birth to Aaradhya some five months ago. In fact some of her recent public appearances make it seem like she’s actually gained weight, rather than lost some (the black number she wore to Mukesh Ambani’s party for Sachin Tendulkar was far from slimming). And her hesitance to commit to any long-term film projects (while at the same time being willing to take on small appearances and commercials) is exactly the type of behavior one might expect from an actress who has decided to have another child. She wouldn’t want any repeats of the Heroine disaster, that’s for sure.
But there’s actual substance to this rumor as well: Rajeev Masand has revealed in his latest column that Aishwarya is “extremely keen” to have another child very soon. That desire for a second baby would go a long way towards explaining her decision to take a year (and then some) away from the industry.
So is a baby brother or sister for Aaradhya in the works? It sounds like Aishwarya and Abhishek are definitely planning on one—and from the looks of things, a new baby could be coming sooner rather than later!
