"Bharti, you look like a princess."
Bharti Singh, who is expecting her first child with Haarsh Limbachiyaa, has shared pictures from a maternity photo shoot.
The comedian, who is eight months pregnant, shared the pictures on her Instagram handle on March 19, 2022, with the caption:
“Aane wale baby ki mummy (mother to the soon-to-be-born baby).”
She also added the hashtags “#babycomingsoon #momtobe #love #lovelyfeeling #blessed #ganpatibappamorya #bhartisingh #haarshlimbachiyaa.”
The pictures showed the comedian posing in a pink gown.
Bharti, who was seen cradling her baby bump in the pictures, wore subtle makeup and left her hair loose.
The artsy background of the picture featured a flower painting.
Bharti’s post was soon showered with comments from several fans as well as celebrities.
Shamita Shetty wrote “Awww” adding a red heart emoji while Rubina Dilaik wrote “So pretty” adding a heart-eyed emoji.
Several fans dropped heart emojis in the post while one wrote: “Bharti, you look like a princess. God bless you and your baby.”
Another added: “The prettiest photoshoot ever.”
The pictures came soon after the comedian posted photographs from a photoshoot with Haarsh Limbachiyaa on the occasion of Holi.
She had captioned the pictures that showed her in a pink dress with:
“Hum Teeno ki tarf se aap sab ko Happy Holi (a Happy Holi to you all from the three of us).”
Haarsh, who wore a black shirt and denim jeans, posed for the pictures with his hand placed on Bharti’s hand over the baby bump.
Bharti and Haarsh had announced the pregnancy through a vlog on their YouTube channel a few months ago.
Bharti recently revealed that she did not realise she was pregnant in the initial weeks due to her weight.
In an interview with Pinkvilla, Bharti said: “When I got pregnant, for two and a half months, I did not even realise it.
“Mote logon ka pata nahi chalta (overweight people don’t realise it).”
The ‘laughter queen’ and her husband met around 11 years ago on the set of the popular Sony TV show, Comedy Circus.
Bharti Singh had been a contestant on the show while Haarsh Limbachiyaa was a screenwriter and the two became good friends before eventually dating.
They finally tied the knot in front of family and friends in Goa in December 2017.
They have appeared in various reality shows as contestants, guests and hosts.
