One of the most obvious things that tell us that a woman is expecting a baby is her belly. Some people, seeing her, can’t help but feel like touching her or caressing her just like her own mother does.
However, not all women feel comfortable with this, which is why a funny video has gone viral in which its protagonist does not like other people to touch her pregnant belly either .
The mother behind this viral video is Canadian actress Shay Mitchell, famous for starring in Pretty Little Liars and who is currently expecting her second baby.
The video has been published on his Instagram account, where it quickly went viral not only because it is a celebrity, but also because it humorously represents a situation that many pregnant women find themselves in: when other people touch your belly .
