People say a picture paints a thousand words, but in this case, a hysterically funny video from Love Island's Laura Anderson on the expectation vs reality of pregnancy is worth a million chuckles. Laura, who is expecting her first child with her ex-boyfriend Gary Lucy, shared a refreshing and funny video on Instagram recently that visually depicted the stark contrast between what she thought pregnancy would be compared to reality.
Laura's expectation clips depict her as a dolled-up and glamorous mum-to-be, looking rested and fresh-faced as she woke up in her cute pink robe and effortlessly applied her makeup, skillfully modeling her stunning baby bump in a gorgeous black dress. Everything looked so easy. But then comes the reality check video. In the next clip, we see Laura sound asleep in her bed, dressed in mismatched pajamas, no makeup, and with her hair haphazardly tied back in a messy bun. She has pillows between her legs to stay comfortable. It’s a far cry from the glamazon we saw earlier, and it's relatable to many other expectant mothers out there who know all about the struggles.
The funny videos continued to show Laura retching into the sink, moisturizing her baby bump, and holding her shirt in her mouth. These scenes are all familiar to those who have gone through the ups and downs of pregnancy. The video went viral on social media, with many of Laura's fans lauding her for her honesty and authenticity. She is remarkable for how she has managed to keep it real throughout her pregnancy, and it's a breath of fresh air.
Aside from the hilarious video, Anderson also shared her latest pregnancy report on social media. She visited Glasgow’s Bump to Baby Scotland clinic for a 4D scan and shared the joyous moment with her followers, thanking the staff and commending the amazing service they provided. But despite the excitement of the scan, Laura couldn't help but express her disappointment that her baby wouldn't take after her in terms of nose. '#Gutted #Lucenostrils,' she wrote, with a touch of humor and self-deprecation. All in all, Laura's pregnancy reality vs expectation video nails it, reminding us to celebrate and share all the ups and downs of pregnancy with humor and honesty.
