Oh baby, baby (bump)! Sure, Ashlee Holmes officially became a mom this week, but even before little Cameron Hendrix Malleo came into the world, his then-pregnant mama let her baby bump do the talking one perfect selfie after another. In fact, from early on in her pregnancy — until... right before she went into labor — The Real Housewives of New Jersey daughter was showing off her baby bump all over Instagram in many, many fetching looks.
To celebrate her new role as a mom to little Cameron, we're taking a look back at some of her most stylish bump moments.
1. Baby Shower Chic
While celebrating her baby, Ashlee left everyone wondering "#whatsinthebump?" and hiding under that super-cute dress. We now know there was an adorable little baby boy!
2. Casual Cool
Even in black and white, Ashlee rocked a baby bump with tons of confidence and that awesome little denim jacket.
3. Embracing Her New Body
At six months into her pregnancy, the RHONJ daughter showed off her pregnancy curves in formalwear.
4. Night On the Town
Ashlee may have been "pregnant AF" when she snapped this selfie, but she also looked sophisticated AF, if you ask us.
5. Rocker Chic
We're not sure what's making Ashlee glow more in this photo: Gavin DeGraw or impending motherhood. (Side note: where do we get a jacket like hers?)
6. On Trend
Even former Jersey Shore star Deena Nicole Cortese looks excited for Ashlee! Plus, we're totally feeling that Coachella-ready lace up dress.
7. Rocker Chic (Part Deux)
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest/most sylist mom-to-be off them all?
8. And Baby Makes Three...
Ashlee made this photo a family affair, with fiance, Pete Malleo, posing (in another cute ensemble) with her shortly before they welcomed their first child.
9. Clothing Optional
Taking a cue from some of the most famous moms on the planet, Ashlee posed semi-nude with her bump on full display. Because, really, that makes for the best accessory.
Oh, and celebrate the new dad, by checking him out with baby Cameron, below.
