Though her 6-month-old daughter Aaradhya wasn’t with her, she clearly wasn’t far from her adoring mom’s thoughts. Aishwarya, who sparkled in a gorgeous floor-length gown, looked radiant as she gushed about her baby girl.
“(Motherhood) is wonderful. You ask the question and I beam!” she told reporters. “It’s splendid… It’s inexplicable. The joy, the bliss, is wonderful. A smile from my daughter and that’s it! She’s good. She’s great.”
Aishwarya, often called the most beautiful woman in the world, came under attack this month when an online video called her out for not shedding her pregnancy pounds quickly enough. It quickly garnered plenty of attention, with commenters both criticizing the stunning star and coming to her defense.
“She needs to learn from people like Victoria Beckham who are back to size zero weeks after their delivery,” wrote one.
Aaradhya is the first child for Aishwarya and her husband, actor Abhishek Bachchan.
