Nina Bogdanova is a mother of two boys, and remembers her “TV” pregnancy as one of the most interesting periods of her life.

Nina Bogdanova, CTV presenter:
I was keeping it a secret for a long time; I had to put a folder up so no one sees my stomach. However, everyone found out that I was pregnant when the baby was kicking this very folder.

The TV drive for the two sons of Nina was only beneficial for them.

Nina Bogdanova:
Being pregnant in the Soviet times meant that you won’t be seen on TV. Today it is a loyal time, when the attitude to pregnancy is not like to an illness. It is even fashionable.

If I knew that it is so good to give birth, I would have had a baby earlier. It turned out that I had to get pregnant myself to feel all this wellbeing. It is good and easy to be pregnant.

That’s it, guys, I need to go now.
