Afshan Azad is ready to embrace motherhood for the first time. The actress, who rose to fame with her portrayal of Padma Patil in the Harry Potter film series, is pregnant with a baby girl and “ready to burst”.
Last week, Afshan shared several photos of her pink and pastel style baby shower. In the photos, Afshan is seen rocking her baby bump, wearing a long-sleeved floral dress. Behind her, the walls were decorated with balloons and pink and purple flowers. A photo also shows her hugging her husband Nabil Kazi. She also received a lot of love from her girlfriends, who posed with her baby bump in one of the photos.
Sharing a photo, she wrote: “I had no idea you could be so in love with a human you haven’t even met yet 💕 Count the days until I meet my new best friend.”
Afshan also shared an Instagram reel which showed the beautiful decor, a small tent, the treats that were served and more. “Thanks to @theballoonbarmidlands @ theteepee.experience @ hurma.co, my husband and all my friends for making this day such a beautiful day to remember,” she captioned her post.
Afshan announced her pregnancy in April. She wrote: “Everyone’s secrets – I’m going to be a mom !!! Thanking Allah SWT for giving us our greatest blessing yet. Baby Kazi is due in July inshAllah. Both of our hearts are filled with love, excitement and nerves! Not long before you go, please keep us all in your prayers. “
