Wonder Women released in India on June 2, and since then there has been no end to the praise showered on the film. Contrary to other superhero films, which end up affirming gender stereotypes, Wonder Woman fascinatingly reverses them. A far cry from the damsel in distress, Wonder Woman saves her man from a drowning aeroplane, while saving the world. Apart from the film, it’s Gal Gadot’s performance as Wonder Woman that has also garnered a lot of applause.
But what makes her performance even more special is a little revelation by the actress herself. Though there were news about Gadot’s pregnancy a couple of months back, we now know for a fact that the actress was five months pregnant when she had to re-shoot certain parts of the film in November. Yes, indeed. While Gadot was saving the world and fighting with swords, she was also carrying a baby, negating all myths that pregnancy puts a stop on work.
This revelation has created quite a buzz among fans, and people on social media are not only surprised but have taken to various online platforms to appreciate her spirit.
turns out Gal Gadot was FIVE MONTHS PREGNANT while filming Wonder Woman in case anyone needs to be reminded that she’s actually a superhero

Much like what she says, it is perhaps time to stop calling woman ‘the weaker sex’. Because clearly they are not.
Serena Williams was pregnant when she won a grand slam & Gal Gadot was pregnant while she filmed Wonder Woman, and we’re the weaker sex how?
