Here's How Anushka Sharma Hid Her Pregnancy on Social Media!

From loose-fitted outfits to Instagram tactics, we decode Anushka's social media strategy to keep her baby bump a secret!

On 27th August, Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli took to Instagram to announce their pregnancy. As expected, the news spread like wildfire, welcoming a dozen good-wishes and blessings from fans and co-stars.

The caption read, "And then, we were three! Arriving Jan 2021."

Now if you do your math, you'd be able to count back to how long before the public announcement were the couple aware about the 'good news'. Eureka!

While we commend the couple for keeping it top secret for SO many months, how did they manage to do it?

It's time to spill the beans...

If you turn back a few months and closely track Anushka's Instagram feed, you'd notice a pattern of #throwback photographs, loose-fitted clothes, and an unmistakable, conscious attempt to conceal the midriff.

Such as the picture above with her older brother. Baby Anushka...a hint, maybe?

High-waist athleisure...why didn't we think of it before? However, you may still be able to spot a cute little bump-belly!

There's no denying that spending time amidst nature is super soothing...and when you manage to hide behind the plants it's super smart too!

#VacayThrowback photographs serve as the perfect cover up when you can't post too many self-shots.

You'd think this video the dynamic duo shared would give it away, but hell no. A black spaghetti top with high-waist denims did the trick!
