Pregnant Hilaria Baldwin Gets Candid About Embracing Her Changing Body (PHOTO)

Pregnancy is such a beautiful thing; it's something all expectant moms should embrace, sans that whole vomiting thing. One expectant mom who's looking forward to her journey is the woman Alec Baldwin is proud to call his wife. With her recent baby bump selfie, Hilaria Baldwin hopes to encourage other pregnant women -- and reiterate the importance of loving yourself and your changing figure.


While this certainly isn't Hilaria's first pregnancy rodeo (she and Alec have 3-year-old Carmen and 9-month-old Rafael), the 32-year-old mom says she was reserved about posting belly selfies with her first child, but has found her voice -- thanks to recognizing the beauty of the moment.

And we begin the journey again! #BaldwinBabyBump3 I posted belly photos every two weeks when I was pregnant with Rafa. I didn't have the guts to do it the first time around with Carmen. The purpose? To show that we don't need to be ashamed or hide the pregnant figure. These are common emotions in our society that elevates a thin body above all else. Being my third baby in three years, I am a true believer that our bodies are amazing, and we should celebrate them, rather than feel embarrassed and hide until the baby weight is entirely gone. For both women and men: we create let's honor how we make these miracles. Every pregnancy is different, so we shall see what happens this time around, ready to take the journey with me? Deep breath, pressing "share"... #366daysoflivingclearly #HilariaLCM

Pregnancy is so mesmerizing and has a beautifully unique quality that will vary between expectant mothers. As Hilaria says, "our bodies are amazing, and we should celebrate them, rather than feel embarrassed and hide until the baby weight is entirely gone."

So, so true, mama.

There is no "perfect" body because all pregnant women were perfectly created to bring life into this world. And, yes, Hilaria looks stunning in this intimate snap, but that doesn't mean she never struggles -- or has struggled -- with her own body issues. I love Hilaria's honesty, her willingness to admit her fears, and her call for expectant mothers to celebrate their form.

A part of me wishes I took pregnancy selfies like this. I mean, they didn't need to be in lingerie (Hilaria, you look amazeballs!), but something other than the occasional post-gym workout snap.

Maybe next time.
