Christina Aguilera has never been ashamed to show off what her mamma gave her, but in a recent photo shoot for an online magazine the glamorous pop-star took a no-shame, no-clothes approach to flaunting the natural beauty of pregnancy.
Though it’s been done before (then again after that, and again after that), the 33-year-old buxom blonde took to the buff to bravely bare her baby bump (say that five times fast) as part of a shoot for VMagazine.com. Aguilera is no stranger to the stresses that pregnancy places on the female body as this will be her second child, and she has no qualms about displaying it for all to see.
“As a woman, I’m proud to embrace my body through all stages of life,” she said in the accompanying article, “staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store.”
The four-time Grammy winner joins an elite list of fellow famous mommies who have also bared it all for photo shoots while expecting. In 1999, a very pregnant Cindy Crawford graced the cover of W magazine. Following her were Britney Spears (2006, Harper’s Bazaar), and Jessica Simpson in 2012 (Elle). They all, however, follow in the footsteps of actress Demi Moore’s famous 1991 Vanity Fair cover, which raised eyebrows 23 years ago this month.
