Did you *really* have a maternity shoot if you didn't pose in the middle of a forest or a swimming pool? File under: iconic. From Beyoncé to Candice Swanepoel, take a look at the celebs who went all-out to celebrate their new arrivals.
If you even had to question it for a second, here's another look. The crowns really do it.
In June 2016, Alanis Morissette posted this photo of herself in a swimming pool pregnant with her second child. We don't know who we should give more props to: Morissette posing so angelically underwater or the photographer.
That moment when you announce your first pregnancy with fiancé Jason Statham with a photoshoot in the middle of a secluded island and look like a total goddess.
In February 2017 the singer/goddess/👑 🐝 posted an entire shoot from her pregnancy with twins Sir Carter and Rumi and it *still* leaves us speechless.
The photoshoot is titled, "I Have Three Hearts" and it doesn't get more magical than this...
Any maternity photoshoot that includes the cover of a national magazine is over-the-top in our book. Almost a decade ago Aguilera flaunted her pregnant body on the cover of Marie Claire's January 2008 issue wearing nothing but a moto jacket.
We like to pose nude behind curtains too. During her second pregnancy, the Victoria's Secret Angel posed in an ad for a
You thought we were done, didn't you? Beyoncé blessed the world with even more photos ahead of her twins' arrival.
Oh, and after too. Major Garden of Eden vibes.
This isn't *exactly* a photoshoot, but still rightfully deserves to be put in one of the most iconic over-the-top maternity photos captured. Have you ever seen anyone rock a crop top pregnant better than Kate Hudson in 2003? Us either.
Bet you didn't remember this one. Mariah Carey. Pregnant. Nude. On the cover of Life & Style's April 2011 issue. Carey is pretty much the definition of over-the-top, and this photoshoot is no different.
Pink posted a photo from a majestic photoshoot of her and her daughter ahead of the arrival of her second daughter. Major bohemian vibes only she could pull off (and it's just freaking adorable).
Serena Williams' Vanity Fair photoshoot has outdone itself in all kinds of beauty with this silhouette of her pregnant body...
...And this shot of her on the cover.
Call it what you want, but most of our selfies turn into a photoshoot too—like this one Kardashian posted naked while pregnant with her second child Saint West.
The Victoria's Secret Angel is completely zen during a photoshoot in what appears to be a river while pregnant with her son, Anacã.
And if you ever wanted to know what a *real* Instagram husband looks like, look no further than this piece of art. Yes, Swanepoel's husband took this photo. So really, #goals.
Adam Levine posted this picture on Instagram of his wife Behati with the caption, "🔥YOWZA🔥" because of course he did and we totally agree it's epic.
Oh, you don't play tennis in Gucci platforms right before giving birth? Ciara posted this photo in April 2017 before her and welcomed the arrival of their baby girl, Sienna Princess.
The former Destiny's Child member looked incredible during a maternity shoot for Elle in 2014 posing naked behind a curtain, as one does.
Notice the "Move over, Demi" in the corner. Here, Cindy Crawford pregnant on the cover of W's June 1999 issue. And no, she wasn't pregnant with model Kaia Gerber. She was expecting her first son Presley Gerber.
