Ballet dancer's time-lapse spinning with her bump

A pregnant ballet dancer has filmed a time-lapse twirl video showing off her growing baby bump with dramatic effect.

Canadian Tara-Brigitte Bhavnani, who is a dancer with the Royal Ballet, has used her love of performance to catalogue her pregnancy over nine months. The 36-year-old has been dancing with the Royal Opera House ballet company for 17 years.

Ms Bhavnani filmed herself every week following her ten-week scan, according to the Metro. She made it look like a continuous video by splicing together individual clips that were then sped up to eventually show the arrival of baby Chloe.

The video has proved a hit and has been watched over 12 million times.
