If you're a famous woman and you're pregnant then it's almost like a rite of passage to pose nude to show off your baby bump. From sizzling actresses, to Bravo stars, and chart-topping divas, a number of celebrity moms have stripped down to flaunt their bump. Whether it's for a glossy magazine spread or social media, baring all before giving birth is as trendy today as it was when Demi Moore graced the cover of Vanity Fair back in 1991. And to pay tribute to those sexy moms, we've rounded up some of the most memorable nude baby bump moments.
1. Demi Moore
The actress set a high bar for any and all nude bump photos that followed. At the time of her now-unforgettable VF cover, she was pregnant with her daughter, Scout LaRue, and pretty much made the rules for this type of photo shoot: Keep it classy. Make no apologies.
2. Cindy Crawford
Years later, in 1999, while pregnant with her son, Presley Walker, the supermodel stunned on the cover of W.
3. Christina Aguilera
The "Beautiful" singer first put her bump on display when she was on the cover of Marie Claire in 2007. At the time she was expecting her son, Max Liron Bratman. Then seven years later, she graced the pages of V, once again in just her birthday suit, while expecting her second child, Summer Rain Rutler.
4. Britney Spears
But, Christina isn't the only pop superstar who bared all on the cover of a major fashion magazine. In 2006, Britney (then pregnant with Jayden James Federline) appeared on Harper's Bazaar in nothing more than a stunning necklace. But what makes this photo so unforgettable is her departure from her blonde locks to jet-black hair.
5. Kelly Rowland
The former Destiny's Child member, pregnant with Titan Jewell Witherspoon, stripped down for Elle in 2014 and slayed.
The normally private superstar (and Kelly's BFF) included a shot of herself posing with hubby Jay Z (probably from sometime in 2011), while pregnant with Blue Ivy, wearing almost nothing more than a smile in photo featured in their 2014 concert special, Beyoncé Jay Z: On the Run.
7. Kim Kardashian
8. Kourtney Kardashian
On the cover and inside the pages of DuJour magazine in 2014 (at the time expecting her third child, Reign Aston Disick), the eldest Kardashian sister left nothing to the imagination.
9. Blac Chyna
Keeping up with the Kardashians isn't easy, but future member of the clan, Blac Chyna — who is currently pregnant with Rob Kardashian's baby — posed not once (Paper magazine), but twice! (Elle), in the nude. BTW, Rob totally approves.
10. Jessica Simpson
Then pregnant with Maxwell Drew Johnson, Jessica appeared on Ellein 2012 draped in only giant, yellow diamonds.
11. Ashlee Holmes
12. Mariah Carey
The year was 2011, the magazine was Life & Style, and, at the time, MC was expecting her twins, Moroccan and Monroe.
13. Lisa Rinna
14. Serena Williams
You know how one of the greatest tennis players in history celebrates impending motherhood? Well, if you're Serena Williams you strip down and bare it all on the cover of Vanity Fair.
Below Lisa recalls her Playboy past — and that photo shoot — for her RHOBH pals.
