Jennifer Lopez’s Pregnant Belly Immortalized In Book

|

Before Demi Moore‘s star turn on the cover of Vanity Fair in 1991 when she was seven months pregnant, and the phrase “celebrity baby bump” didn’t even exist. These days, the term seems to have magazines and websites devoted to it and we all know what to expect when the celebs are expecting. Jennifer Lopez, famous for her extreme particularity, is one-upping all those other moms. In a recent interview with Elle, the singer told the mag that she felt the urge to commission a book of photos of her pregnant self: “I was like, ‘How am I going to rock this moment of my life?’ … I felt very womanly. Marc was in a dream. He loved it.”

The book, shot by photographer Tony Duran, was a Valentine’s Day gift to husband Marc Anthony. Elle writer Peter Rubin describes it as “oversize, lushly shot, and frankly looks like the sexiest maternity catalog in existence: Jennifer in full makeup, hair done up, wearing long cashmere sweaters pulled up to expose her nigh-to-bursting belly.” Twins Max and Emme were born two weeks after the photo shoot, and in true Lopez fashion, they themselves are rumored never to have worn the same onesie twice.
