Since bursting onto the reality show scene as one of Hugh Hefner's girlfriends in Girls Next Door what seems like EONS ago, Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett has been unapologetically herself. You gotta love her for it. Now expecting her second baby with husband Hank Baskett next month, she's been spied rocking her sizable bump in an impressively brave, beautiful way. (See, right, at Safe Kids Day in L.A. a couple weeks back.)
Most recently, the trio was spied hanging out on a family vacay to Santa Barbara, and Kendra flaunted her third-trimester belly in a teeny, tiny, sunny yellow bikini! Yes, yes, she did.
She's so fearless and confident to just put that all out there. I have to admit that Kendra's flashy tendencies used to rub me the wrong way, but seeing her hold nothing back as an expectant mom is extremely refreshing. We could all stand to enjoy a dose of her self-assuredness.
The message pregnant women are sent is way too often to cover up, hide your bump, you're not sexual anymore, you're "fat" ... Ugh. But in one fell swoop here, Kendra proves ALL of that is baloney. We should feel even freer to enjoy and embrace our pregnant bodies. That's exactly what Kendra seems to be doing -- and she's truly glowing as a result.
How do you feel about pregnant women "putting it all out there" like Kendra is? Would you wear or have you ever worn a bikini in your third trimester?
