Contrary to the notion that pregnant women should receive all the rest they can, women worldwide are now working on changing this old-fashioned belief. Of course, it’s true that pregnancy will leave you feeling more tired than usual, but that is no reason to drop out of your work and stay bedridden for most of the day. Despite the difficulties that pregnant women face, many of them keep working full time. And the same goes for celebrity moms as well. Here in this article, we have a list of some of the most famous celebrities who have set the bar high by continuing to work throughout their pregnancies. Read on to know them all.
