Bethany Hamilton is expecting her first child in just a few weeks.

But the mother-to-be is already sending her impending newborn an important life lesson: have no fear, kid!

Hamilton, a surfer who lost lost her left arm in a shark attack many years ago, has posed for one of the coolest pregnancy photos you’ll ever see.

Clearly unafraid to go back in the water, it features Hamilton at peace and blowing some bubbles:

The inspirational star captioned this cool image "mermaid momma."

Hamilton announced her pregnancy in February and said at the time:

"I plan to surf as long as I can. Once the belly is pretty big, maybe I’ll mellow it out and spend more time swimming and enjoying the ocean."

Looks like that’s what’s taking place here. We should all be so mellow!
