London: Shilpa Shetty showed off her baby bump as she attended a party with husband Raj Kundra in her first public appearance since announcing her pregnancy.

She’s kept a low profile ever since she announced just over a month ago that she was expecting her first child, but being a public figure she had to make an appearance sooner or later.

The actress shot to fame outside India too after she appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2007 in Britain, where she was racially abused by fellow contestant Jade Goody.

Shetty and Kundra were married in 2009 and she announced her pregnancy in December 2011.

“YES’ an addition to our family is our confirmation to all queries :) We seek blessings from all in this very beautiful phase of our lives,” the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

According to a friend of the couple, Shetty waited to share her pregnancy news as she had suffered a miscarriage earlier.

“Shilpa suffered a miscarriage earlier this year, so this time Raj and she did not want to break the news till the first trimester was complete,” the friend said.

“Now, she has started telling her close friends,” the friend added.
