It's true: 2016 has been the year of celebrities embracing their bodies—from Kim Kardashian's endless nudes (opens in new tab), to Renée Zellweger's statement (opens in new tab) about all those plastic surgery rumors, to Jennifer Aniston's essay (opens in new tab) about her changing body. So, it makes perfect sense that Nev Schulman's fiancée Laura Perlongo showed up to the VMA red carpet wearing her baby bump. Like, just her baby bump.

In a truly girl power move, Perlongo opted to wear a jacket with no shirt underneath—because who needs clothes when your body looks absolutely gorgeous and is literally growing a human?

Also, look at how insanely adorable this picture of Schulman kissing Perlongo's bump is. Has any photo ever been cuter? THE ANSWER IS NO.
