Marisa Miller Bares Her Bump For Allure Magazine

Whoa mama! It seems like all the pregnant celebrities are getting down to their skivvies to bare their bumps these days! Supermodel Marisa Mayer is showing off her goods too in a new photo for Allure Magazine.  The former Victoria’s Secret Angel, 33 – due to give birth “any minute” to her first child with husband Griffin Guess – bared her baby bump in the online interview, and opens up about her pregnancy. Here are some highlights of what she says:

On posing nude during pregnancy: “I always felt, even before I got pregnant, that it’s better to accentuate your curves. A lot of women try to tuck their butt in or kind of slouch because they’re trying to hide. Obviously, you can’t suck it in, but it’s important to really show off the belly. For some reason, for me, from the side it looks the biggest, so that’s what I tried to do.”

On her prenatal fitness routine: “I’d heard that swimming feels so good when you’re pregnant, and I love being in the ocean. I was even paddle boarding up until 17 weeks, but then my center of gravity and balance were completely off. I looked so funny standing up on the board with all that extra weight in front. I did Pilates five times a week during my second trimester, but it’s so modified now, mostly stretching and breathing. It’s easy to feel swollen and puffy, and moving really helps with the circulation.”

On coloring her hair during pregnancy: “I was taking tons of vitamins, and with the increased blood flow, everything grows faster—my hair, my nails. It was the first time in my life I’d actually cut my nails with a clipper! When I found out I was pregnant, I cut all my hair’s breakage off, thinking, This is the only time I can have a break and do a little hair boot camp. My stylist was worried I was going to cry, but it was for my hair’s health—I didn’t care how it looked. My color grew out naturally and eventually looked sort of ombre. Once I got into my second trimester, I asked my stylist about a few small highlights around the face, just to break up the color a bit. We used organic dye, and to make sure I didn’t inhale anything, we even did it outside.”

On her best advice to pregnant women re. weight gain: “Embrace everything and all the changes. My sister said to me, ‘You’re eating healthy and you’re working out, so whatever your body gains, it knows what it’s doing.’ I had never even owned a scale before, but gaining weight is part of charting your progress. Yes, I was seeing numbers I’d never seen before, but I let go of that because I had a new goal and focus. It’s an adjustment, but it helps having a lot of positive support.”
