Kareena wasn't just inspiring on-screen as she is off-screen. From her out-there 'Poo' personality to her out-going and bubbly 'Geet' character, she has always given us life goals. Pregnancy has always been a humble and hush-hush topic in Indian media, until Kareena's pregnancy happened. Instead of hiding her baby bump, she walked every red-carpet event, and flaunted her bump glamorously. The actress set new examples of the million things a woman still can do when she's carrying the miracle of life.
