Nadia Sawalha took to Instagram to share some ‘big news’ with her followers and they have praised her for being so relatable.
Nadia Sawalha is incredibly open on social media and it’s one of the things that her fans love most about her.
Over the festive period the mum-of-two has been keeping her 63,000 followers in the loop with regards to her family’s celebrations and activities and so she thought she would also share some big news on social media too…
Cradling her stomach and wearing a onesie, the Loose Women panellist’s picture has a banner which read ‘We have some amazing news’, and a caption which explained: ‘There’s no easy way of breaking our amazing news … just swipe across to be amazed … #bignews #newyearseve #breakingnews #bunintheoven #bigannouncement #bump #happy #happynewyear #happynewyearseve #newyearseveoutfit #newyears2019’.
If at first glance you thought Nadiya was announcing her third pregnancy, you were not alone.
One fan wrote: ‘WOW after talking about wanting a son you fooled me lol’; and another pleaded: ‘Plz tell truth R u pregnant x’.
However, Nadia’s news was not that she’s having a baby. Instead it was that, perhaps like many of us waking up in 2019, she’s gained a bit of extra weight following a few weeks of over indulgence.
Yes – Nadia’s big news was that she is ‘fat again’! She shared the post two days ago and it has over 3,000 likes.
One fan joked: ‘Hahaha like most of us at this time of year xx’.
Several more of Nadia’s fans revealed they could relate to her big news and shared their own announcements.
One said: ‘I’m in the same club. Full of chocolate babies 😂😂’.
Another wrote: ‘@nadiasawalhaandfamily Could it be Triplets? Have you got names? Baileys, Roses & Cheesecake 😂 😂’.
While a third joked: ‘@nadiasawalhaandfamily I’m calling mine nuts, hoping to deliver a snickers bar any day now 😂 x’.
This wasn’t the first time Nadia has joked about her weight gain over the festive period. A few days before this post she shared a video exclaiming that several of her bras didn’t fit because she had put on some weight.
The caption read: ‘I‘M SO FAT !!! Has this happened to anyone else???? What have I done ?!! Why did I buy #cheese !!! I’m in SHOCK !! LIKE AND TAG A FRIEND IF YOU FEEL MY PAIN.’
She joked in the video: ‘How could this happen in four bloody days!’
We feel you Nadia… We’ll be laying off the cheese and crackers for a while!
