My Kitchen Rules star Zana Pali has opened up about the struggles she’s been facing during her pregnancy.

The reality star, who is expecting a baby boy with husband Gianni Romano, admitting she’s “not exactly loving the journey of pregnancy”, but she knows it’s a time of many ups and downs and everyone’s experience is unique. 

I’ve had a lot of questions about my pregnancy journey, how I’m finding it all and whether I can offer any advice to mums to be out there,” she wrote on Instagram, alongside a photo of her with her baby bump.

“To be completely honest you’ll probably hear a million different opinions on what you should and shouldn’t do with so many telling you what THEY think is best,” she continued. 

“Of course it’s perfectly fine to hear what others have to say but at the end of the day do what’s right for YOU. Everyone is going to have different experiences, different ideals and different expectations.”

Going on to share her words of advice, Zana said: “Focus on yourself, and your munchkin to be”.

“There’s nothing glamorous about the journey…Trust me with the weight gain, hormone changes and the weirdest up and down mood swings, you’ll be constantly reminding yourself to hang in there and be strong for the health of your baby.

“Even though I’m not exactly loving the journey of pregnancy I am loving the fact that I’m going to be a mother to the most incredible little baby boy.” 

Zana is 25 weeks into her pregnancy, and has been sharing a series of snaps of her growing baby bump over the past few weeks.

She shot to fame after starring on My Kitchen Rules back in 2016 alongside husband Gianni.
