Devon Windsor shows off her baby bump as she poses naked by the ocean in photo posted to Instagram
She announced in March that she’s expecting her first child with husband Johnny Barbara.
And on Wednesday, Devon Windsor posted a photo of herself standing naked against an ocean backdrop to her Instagram.
The model, 27, explained in the accompanying caption that she wanted to spark discussion about the changes to women’s bodies during pregnancy.
In the snap, she preserved her modesty with a strategically placed leg and using one hand to cover her breasts.
Her other hand was pressed against the small of her back as she arched to better show off her blossoming belly.
’33 weeks and counting!’ she wrote.
She went on: ‘I feel like one of the most asked questions while being pregnant is “are you worried about your body changing?” And the truth is, for me at least, not at all. I have wanted a baby for as long as I can remember and have fully embraced the body changes that have come with it.
‘I couldn’t wait for my belly to pop!’ she added.
The Victoria’s Secret model married businessman Johnny on November 16, 2019, on the Caribbean island of St. Barts.
In April, she shared that they are expecting a girl after celebrating a gender reveal party. The baby is due in September.
In her Instagram post, she spoke about ‘the pressure society puts on women to always look a certain way’, adding that it ‘has unfortunately affected so many women, especially moms to be.’
‘Let’s embrace all the different body types small or large,’ Devon said. ‘Truthfully I was on the other side of the spectrum where people would comment that I looked “too small”… either way my body is thankfully doing what it is supposed to be, and as long as the baby and mama are healthy, that’s all that I can hope for!.
She concluded: ‘The very last thing on my mind is what size I am or how much I weigh. I’m just embracing these new curves.’
Devon took to Instagram on March 12 to share two black and white snaps of herself with her husband.
She held the image of her ultrasound scan in the snaps as she shared her happy baby news.
In the caption she wrote: ‘Mom & Dad. I’m pregnant!! Johnny and I are so excited to finally share the news with you guys!’
She added: ‘I have dreamt of being a mama my whole life. We are so grateful for this little angel in my belly, and are so excited for this new chapter in our lives!’
Missouri-born Devon got her start as a model in St. Louis in 2008 when she was just 14.
A year later, she moved to Los Angeles and in 2010 she signed with IMG Models in New York.
She became an in demand catwalk model and became a regular in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show from 2013 onwards.
