Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera both posed naked while they were pregnant. However, the pregnant women who posed for this personal photography project of British photographer Nigel Barker were not trying to create buzz and sell magazine copies. They were celebrating the miracle of carrying a baby and bringing new life to this world.
"Inspired by my own lovely wife who I enjoyed growing pregnant and humored me whenever (which was always) I wanted to photograph her ever growing belly," explains Nigel, who is better known as a judge on ‘America’s Next Top Model’ with Tyra Banks.
He continues, "I since then put many calls out the public and my friends looking for pregnant ladies who are willing to pose. The exhibition is essentially a celebration of how miraculously wonderful the female body is and the pride and success of how, I believe, a woman should feel during this special time in her life."
