When Chinmaya had shared the news about giving birth to twins in June, she had also schooled those who had been asking if she had her babies through surrogacy as she had never posted pictures of herself being pregnant. On Tuesday, Chinmayi shared a picture of her baby bump for the first time. She wrote in the caption, “The only selfie I took throughout pregnancy. The only. Here at almost 32 weeks (sic).” She wore a yellow dress in the mirror selfie.

In the comments section of her post, fans said her photo was like a ‘shut up’ to those who said the singer was never pregnant and used a surrogate. A comment read, “Shut up pic for those who said it was surrogacy.” Another comment read, “Lowkey iconic.” An Instagram user also commented, “This is a beautiful pic. I don’t know why people have to take this as evidence that there was no surrogacy! Even if there was surrogacy, it will happen for medical reasons and personal decision…what is so wrong about that and why demean a person for that!”

In June, sharing the news of her newborns, Chinmayi had written on Instagram, “Driptah and Sharvas. The new and forever center of our universe (sic).” In a separate post, Chinmayi had responded to those, who had sent her messages and asked if she had opted for surrogacy.

Her post had read, “I’m absolutely loving these people who are DM-ing me asking if I had twins through a surrogate just because I didn’t post pictures of me being pregnant. Only those who were my innermost circle knew because I was protecting myself.” She went on to add, “I was and will always be guarded about my personal life, my family, my friends circle. Photos of our kids won’t be on our socials either for a long while.”Chinmayi had also said she actually sang a bhajan during her caesarean as her twins entered the world. Chinmayi’s husband Rahul Ravindran, who is an actor and filmmaker, had also posted pictures of the twins.
