Loose Women star Nadia Sawalha, 56, stunned fans as she shared a snap of her “pregnant” belly on Instagram, but not all was as it seemed. The presenter teased her followers as she debuted her growing bump which she then revealed was a food baby from all the festive treats she’d consumed over the past few days, which had in turn left her stomach bloated.
Each day I can feel her growing and am overwhelmed with emotion
Standing to the side she lifted her top as she set her tummy free from her unbuttoned jeans.
Alongside the snaps that would usually be associated with a pregnancy photoshoot, she joked: “Wow … Mine and @mark_adderley prayers have been answered !!”
“And we had so much fun making our little one.”
Nadia continued: “And have now been blessed with what the most perfect food baby ever. Each day I can feel her growing and am overwhelmed with emotion.”

Many rushed to the comments section to share the giggles with the presenter, who thanked her for being so frank with how her body has responded to the annual splurge many of us have indulged in.
One fan typed: “Oh my gosh!!! This is the best post I’ve seen this Christmas! Love your honesty and realness Merry Christmas Nadia.”
Another added: “That’s hilarious- I love how you love yourself and you’re body just the way you are. Rather than be hung up on being perfect and having the right body image to please others! Love your honesty.”
A third echoed: “You are so funny. You’re an inspiration to us all.”

“Mine was due end of the first lockdown…it’s still growing!!!” someone else joked.
But Nadia hasn’t been alone in bringing the body positivity to Instagram.
Earlier this year, former Emmerdale star Gemma Atkinson also shared her bloat story on the picture site, to prove she too is “human”.
Known for her strict workout routines and healthy lifestyle, the 36-year-old posted a video poking fun at her stomach, as she paced around in some tracksuit bottoms and a sports bra.
She joked: “Genuinely look like I could be pregnant again today. If I wanted to pose for the Gram, I could just go [sucks in belly]. No one would know. But I’m struggling.”
Gemma and her partner Strictly Come Dancing star Gorka Marquez, welcomed their baby daughter Mia in July 2019 but 15 months after her birth, Gemma revealed she wasn’t putting pressure on herself to get into shape quick and embraced her body’s reaction.
“No pressure, no silly diets or quick fixes, no guilt about not doing it sooner and no killing myself in the gym or depriving myself of foods I enjoy,” she wrote online.
“I made a promise to myself that I would strive to be the strongest I can be both mentally & physically for Mia, and there’s no better feeling when you get there. Parent life is tough, but so are you!”
