Gwen Stefani baby bump pregnant selfie

For far longer than we have been snapping pictures on our phones and putting them all up on our social media, pregnant women have been taking pictures of their stomachs that range from adorable to beautiful to kind of terrifying (yet still awesome). Pregnant women are therefore natural masters of the selfie, and Gwen Stefani is no exception.

After confirming she is pregnant with a third child last week, Stefani posted a photo on Twitter last night wherein she posed wearing a form-fitting black shirt, black leather pants, and a pair of stiletto sandals. As always, her hair looks effing perfect and, though we can’t really see it, I am going to take a wild guess that her face does, too. She captioned the picture, “bump it gx” which was rather endearing.

As I have said before, I think many people have an incredibly narrow idea of what pregnant women “should” wear, as though they are not already dealing with enough annoyances and actual physical discomfort. Maternity clothes, while steadily improving, have historically been frumpy garments featuring ugly patterns and not much shape (sound familiar?), and certainly not ones that involve tight leather pants that call for high heels as an accompanying feature. In all honesty, I would likely fall on my face if I tried to pull off those stilettos regardless of being pregnant or not, but still–if you can rock it, then do so. And if anybody can do so, it is Gwen Stefani, the girl who somehow made braces look cool.
