Lisa Rinna, 43, was snapped going out for sushi in Bel-Air with her daughters, Delilah Belle, 8, and Amelia Gray, 5.
I hadn’t realized this, but Lisa posed for Playboy back in 1998 when she was six-months-pregnant with Delilah Belle.
Lisa, fecund and six months pregnant (daughter Delilah Belle was born June 10), spent a weekend showing off that certain glow we’ve heard about. She has a point to make here, and it’s not just that she looks great. “Society usually deals with pregnancy by covering it up,” she says. “But I think it’s something a woman should be proud of, as opposed to saying, ‘Put me in a corner for nine months, and once I have the baby and work my butt off to get back to my regular weight, then I’ll be accepted again, then I’ll be beautiful again, then I’ll be loved by my husband again, then I’ll be a sexual being again.'”
If she’d like to change a few minds about how pregnancy doesn’t diminish sexuality, that may be because the experience has changed some of her own attitudes. “Especially if you’re an actress living in this town, you can get preoccupied with how you look and what you weigh,” says Lisa, who has long kept toned through grueling martial-arts and aerobic workout. “But when I got pregnant, all of a sudden I accepted myself the new way I am. It is the most beautiful I’ve ever felt. I feel the most sexual, she most sexy, the most confident. I just feel great about myself.”
Throughout the pregnancy, she adds, she refused to conceal her body in traditional maternity clothes. “There’s this sense of ‘Oh, she’s pregnant, we have to take care of her, don’t let her lift things or work too hard. Don’t let her show her body. Let’s put her in clothes that hide it.’ But if I go to an event where I have to wear a long dress, I don’t wear a muumuu. I wear a dress that I would normally wear, just a little bit bigger. Women have responded wonderfully to that – but in the time that I’ve been pregnant, I have also had more men come up to me and tell me how beautiful I am and how sexy I look.”
She laughs, and the sound of triumph in her voice is unmistakable. “There is no reason,” Lisa says, “why we shouldn’t look at a woman who is naked and pregnant and say, ‘Isn’t that cool?'”
Wow…posing nude while pregnant has become quite the phenomenon! Cindy Crawford, Britney Spears, Demi Moore and countless others have all done the same! What a wonderful celebration of women!
