Pregnant actress Christina Applegate has featured in a hilarious mock advertisement for 'prenatal pole dancing'.

The former Married With Children star proves she has kept her sense of humour with the video, filmed for website Funny or Die.

Applegate is shown gyrating around a stripper pole wearing fishnet stockings, hotpants and a crop top which exposes her baby belly, while touting the benefits of pole dancing for women feeling unattractive while pregnant.

Perhaps she is making a statement about women expected to remain sexy while carrying an extra 15 kilos on their front, or maybe she is just having some fun. Language warning if you are watching around children!
