Sania Mirza may be away from the tennis court, but has been bringing her ace pregnancy style-and glow- to public appearances. As Sania and Shoaib gear up to welcome their first child- Baby Mirza Malik- after 8 years of marital bliss, bhabhi  has been making us all go wow-za, be it health, fitness or her looks in eastern and western wear.

Bhabi wrote a long message on Twitter in response to salacious comments from men:

Word of advice for ppl (specially since the majority seem to be men) who think being pregnant means you have to go into hibernation for 9 months, sit at home and for some reason be ‘ashamed in this haalat.’ So when women are pregnant they don’t have disease or become untouchable.

Due any day in October, we dissected her style and of course, maternity style is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor, here is what all mommies-to-be can learn from Sania Mirza and her pregnancy style:

1. Flaunt the bump!

Aunties: Beta paet kou chupao!

Bhabhi: It’s 2018!

Sania Mirza shows us how to flaunt a baby bump with munasib grace and haya. She has never concealed it the way most women in our society do- draping it under a huge chaadar, as if it is an abomination or a monster that will unleash destructive powers if exposed to the light of day.

Bhabhi embraces her bump with suave!

2. Keep it natural!

Bhabhi keeps it real – not afraid to shy away from the paparazzi owing to weight gain or absence of makeup. Mommies-to-be have days when they just want to Netflix and chill and Sania Mirza tells us it’s no different for celebrity moms like her.

So ladies, shed all inhibitions, take out the jammies and go for the much awaited shopping trip!

3. Let comfort reign supreme!

Chillax in knitwear, perfect for exercising or as lounge-wear, making sure you invest in a few, good quality pieces that are hassle free and last in your wardrobe longer as your body transforms.

Ditch the heels as switching up your kicks for comfier, safer, less vertiginous pairs is a worthwhile move, especially since your feet are likely to get swollen soon.

Long is lovely!

Sania Mirza validated a major fashion tip for pregnant mothers: wear long lengths to visually balance the width of your bump and look taller, slender and still sexy. Note: don’t don ill-fitting abayas! Take cues from these looks where she opted for jackets, anarkalis and front open dresses amongst others and exudes major oomph:

5. Contained colours in minimal prints are a winner!

Sania Mirza kept it safe, prim and proper by opting for solid colours and classic prints that complemented her bump perfectly.

Sometimes you feel too nauseous, tired, bloated and what not! Darker colours or deeper tones are like a magic eraser on all of that. They have a slimming effect, work for day to night events and cover the stuff you spill on yourself more easily. More proof is this look:

Coming to prints, Sania Mirza opted for classic polka dots and the “almost stripe” look more than once. Here’s how:

On being questioned by on managing her work and personal life after having a child, Sania Mirza was quoted as saying:

 I have not followed the ‘traditional women route’ in my life. I have always been the odd one out and I am glad that I was one. My parents have always supported all my decisions — so whether I was playing tennis in Hyderabad at a time when nobody dreamed of playing tennis or winning Wimbledon or marrying the person that I loved or having a child after eight years of our marriage — I have always lived life on my own terms.

Lots of prayers for the parents-to-be from PostsHive.  Ghabrana nai hai!
