Pregnant women fall into three separate schools of thought when it comes to their baby bumps. Some are beyond proud of the protruding stomach and enjoy showing it off at the beach, in photographs or to those who might be curious. Some are extremely self conscious about the new size and don’t particularly enjoy making an issue out of it. And those in the last group fall somewhere in between, not shying away from attention but not seeking it out either. Let the record show current Chicago Fire actress and former Roswell lead Shiri Appleby is a member of the first camp.
The star is twenty days away from giving birth to her first child with fiancé/ chef Jon Shook. So, to keep fans updated, she decided to send out a picture from a recent trip to the beach, and there is not a single lick of self-conscious emotions to be found anywhere. Check out the shot below, courtesy of her Instagram…
Appleby and Shook have been engaged since this past summer, but her pregnancy has apparently brought the two a whole lot closer. All of the extra miles he’s gone to help in the form of emotional support and little favors have really made her confident she’s chosen the right man to start a family with.
Pop Blend’s sincerest congratulations go out to Appleby and Shook. She might be proud of her baby bump, but something tells me she’ll still be very happy in twenty days if her baby comes out happy and healthy.
