The model and actress revealed earlier this week that she and her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard are expecting their first child together.
Posting to Instagram on Tuesday morning, the year-old model and actress shared a nude selfiewhere she wore nothing but a pair of socks as she revealed that she is 20 weeks into her pregnancy. Fans of the star wrote in the comment section of her post, where they admired Ratajkowski for her changing body amid her pregnancy.
On Monday, Ratajkowski revealed in an essay for Vogue that she and her husband Sebastian Bear-McClard are expecting their first child together. Opening up the beginning of her essay by touching on why she doesn't want to reveal her baby's sexthe Gone Girl actress wrote, "When my husband and I tell friends that I'm pregnant, their first question after 'Congratulations' is almost always 'Do you know what you want?
Who will this person be? What kind of person will we become parents to?
How will they change our lives and who we are? Ratajkowski then went on to explain her feelings on having both a son and a daughter, and said that she doesn't "necessarily fault anyone for these generalizations" about gender, as "a lot of our life experiences are gendered, and it would be dishonest to try to deny the reality of many of them.
And yet I realize that while I may hope my child can determine their own place in the world, they will, no matter what, be faced with the undeniable constraints and constructions of gender before they can speak or, hell, even be born. Ratajkowski said she "used to call myself superstitious, but now I understand it another way.
The idea that I could 'jinx' something or the belief that I could project my thoughts in a particular way to bring about a certain result is actually called 'magical thinking,' a coping mechanism one develops to make oneself feel more in control. Now, though, I don't try to envision a pink or blue blanket in my arms ," Ratajkowski added.
I'm completely and undeniably helpless when it comes to almost everything surrounding my pregnancy: how my body will change, who my child will be. But I'm surprisingly unbothered. Instead of feeling afraid, I feel a new sense of peace.
I'm already learning from this person inside my body. I'm full of wonder.
