No matter how you feel about this kind of photo shoot, if you had to pick one human being to see naked and in her third trimester, Marisa Miller would probably be that person.
Marisa and husband Griffin Guess (i.e. America’s most idolized virtual unknown guy) are expecting their first child very soon, and the model has taken it all off for Allure:
These gorgeous Marisa Miller photos are different than any we’ve seen before for obvious reasons, but the 34-year-old says her approach to them wasn’t that different:
“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.”
The Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret beauty says she’s tried to embrace changes to her famous body – including the inevitable weight gain – brought on by pregnancy.
“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,” she says.
“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.”
“I did Pilates five times a week during my second trimester, but it’s so modified now, mostly stretching and breathing … moving really helps with the circulation.”
Miller has helped men everywhere with blood circulation for years, and for that, we thank her. Here’s wishing Marisa and Griffin the best in these joyous months.
