Heavily pregnant Abby Clancy, who is expecting her second baby with husband Peter Crouch any day now, has stripped off for a series of naked bump pics. They're vaguely reminiscent of Demi Moore's famous pregnant shoot for Vanity Fair, as the Daily Mail points out.
She shared a sneak peak of the pics on her Twitter page, along with a snap from her recent baby shower, which appeared to feature semi-naked waiters. Which got me wondering - no, not whether you've ever been waited on by semi-naked men - but how you feel about bare bump portraits?
Speaking personally, I always felt way too self-conscious about my stretch marks during pregnancy to even contemplate posing for bump pics, never mind stripping off for a bare bump shoot. But I have a few friends who've documented their pregnancies with a shoot like Abbey's, and the pics are truly remarkable.
Naked or not, I definitely regret not taking more pictures of my bumps during each of my pregnancies. I think I have a snap of me during each pregnancy but that's about it - none of those artistic galleries documenting each month along the way, sadly.
I also think pics from a bump shoot must be a lovely thing to look back on once your 'babies' have all grown up and flown the nest. What a lovely way to document a fleeting moment in your life as a Mama.
