Bumps on parade: pregnant stars strip down
US beach volleyball Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh Jennings has twice posed naked for ESPN magazine's Body Issue: once while pregnant, then again with nine-week-old daughter Scout Margery. "I was really, really nervous. I felt exposed, not just physically, but with all of my insecurities,” she told People. “When I came down to it, I had the opportunity to do something uncomfortable. I think that’s an important part of life. It’s something new. I looked at it as a challenge.”
Pregnant pop star Jessica Simpson has channelled her inner Demi Moore by posing naked on a magazine cover - and revealed she's expecting a baby girl.
The singer was photographed exposing her bulging baby bump for the new edition of Elle in the US and told readers she and her fiance Eric Johnson know the gender of their unborn child, which is due in the next few weeks.
The pose is reminiscent of Ghost star Moore's 1991 Vanity Fair photoshoot, and Simpson opens about her baby daughter in the interview, revealing the couple has already chosen a "non-traditional name" for her.
"We're sure on the name ... We're embroidering it on things. It's nothing shocking and nothing you'll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they'll know ... why," she says
Simpson also hopes the tot doesn't take after her sportsman father, adding, "I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins! Eric is so athletic - we're gonna have this athletic girl and I won't even be able to take her shopping, 'cause all she's gonna want is sports bras and Nikes."
