Many expectant mothers in their third trimesters feel uncomfortable and are lacking self-esteem with their changing figure.
But for eight months pregnant Alessandra Ambrosio, the Brazilian supermodel actually claims she feels more confident than ever.
And to ride home her point of view, the 31-year-old has posed nude for a new ad campaign for Brazilian jewellery company Vivara.
The mother-of-one, who is expecting a baby boy with fiancé Jamie Muzar, stripped off with nothing but jewellery on for acclaimed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Speaking about the campaign, she said: ‘A nude photoshoot was good, because pregnancy makes me much more confident. I’m proud of my body to be generating a life…
‘I wasn’t ashamed to do a nude shoot for two of my favourite photographers. I’m happy to have one of the most important moments of my life recorded by them.’
Ambrosio posed for the shots recently at the famous five-star Copacabana Palace Hotel in Rio De Janeiro.
The photoshoot was a closed set with just Alas and Piggott the only one’s present.
Ambrosio has finally started her maternity leave after a busy promotional tour of Europe last month.
The beauty, who ended up at No.5 on the list of the world’s best paid models with a $5million salary last year, visited Turkey, Poland, Germany and Spain to promote Phillips razors
Due to give birth to her second child next month, Ambrosio is already lining up post-baby modelling gigs.
She is determined to be back to her 34-25-34 size in time for the launch of the Victoria’s Secret store in London in July.
She said recently: ‘I already have jobs planned for afterwards so hopefully will be back in shape.
‘I told my booker and my manager; “I know I have a job to do, so just book the jobs and hopefully it’ll be fine.”
‘I only have a few more jobs to do before I have the baby – all editorial, no more catwalk now – and then I hope to be back in London for the opening of the Victoria’s Secret store in July. I should definitely be back for the next Victoria’s Secret show – I have quite a while until then.’
Ambrosio was nearly three months pregnant when she walked in the Victoria’s Secret catwalk show last November.
