Nicole Kidman is like any other pregnant woman – she gets the morning sickness, the cankles, and the wrinkles from stress. Or a lack of botox.
Like every other regular pregnant woman out there, she’s excitedly documenting her pregnancy with naked photos.
Nicole Kidman has chosen Patrick Demarchelier to take exclusive photographs of her pregnant body.
The 40-year-old actress – who is expecting her first biological child with husband Keith Urban – is said to have decided on the renowned photographer to take the exclusive snaps, but wants to wait until she is nearly ready to give birth before the shoot.
A source close to the Cold Mountain actress told the New York Daily News newspaper: “Nicole wants to wait until she looks really pregnant.”
I know this is quite a trend, to get appropriately airbrushed pictures taken of your enormous baby bump, while nude. I think it’s a little bit strange for people who wouldn’t normally get naked pictures taken to suddenly say “My body is the weirdest shape it is ever going to be, let’s get some nude pictures taken.”
What I don’t understand is why celebrities such as Christina Aguilera will get nude pictures while preggers, and allow it to be displayed in a classy magazine like Marie Claire. Under no circumstances could I imagine those same pictures being published in Playboy.
There’s no mention of whether Nicole will be offering her pictures for publication.
Just a note for pregnant people who might be thinking about getting nude pictures taken to document this exciting time in your life – if you can’t afford a professional photographer, be careful taking them yourself. You could wind up with the most hideous nude pictures you will ever see, the kind of ones that you’ll use to scare your teenage daughters into using contraceptives.
In other Kidman news, the trailer for Nicole’s film Australia has just been released.
Picture note by Celebitchy: Nicole Kidman is shown leaving the Bryan Adams concert at The Roxy on Sunset Boulevard on 5/19/08 and at the Academy of Country Music Awards on 5/18/08, thanks to WENN.
my father took a pic of my mother 9 months pregnant and she looks amazing. no photoshop back in 1979. it takes some photo-skills, that´s true.
She looks so pretty and happy in this picture … best of luck to her.
Okay, let me get this right. A woman who says she’s shy and wants privacy & is never photographed with her kids “to protect their privacy” 🙄 is now going to pose nude to document her pregnancy? Doesn’t her husband have a camera? This woman just can’t seem to keep her clothes on.
And does she have to go to the bathroom in those shots from the awards show? Or is is she just trying to make her belly look as big as possible for the cameras? Nothing like famewhoring the baby before it’s even born.
I think Nicole in particular is doing it to prove that she is, indeed, pregnant. There was so much speculation over her inability to have the behbehs with Cruise, and whether she was really actually for real pregnant this time that she just wants to expel all doubt. “LOOK WORLD. I AM UP THE DUFF. NOW SHUT UP.”
She’s trying to prevent the type of rumors that surround Suri. But I think it’s just tacky. Pregnant bellies looks sweetest covered up.
Um, can she not just be doing it for herself and her hubby to mark a really special, happy time for them? Or it that too naive an idea? Seems like such a normal (by H/Wood standards) thing to want to do…
She still appears so emaciated, despite being close to (or in?) her third trimester. Now I realize that every woman is different in terms of pregnancy weight gain, but she looks downright skeletal.
I think she looks adorable. 🙂
Are they going to be published?
And geronimo – stop infecting this place with logic!! 😛
As for the way she’s showing off her baby bump – well God if that’s the worst thing she’s ever done in her life , I don’t think she’s doing too badly. It’s a little gauche, but hardly famewhorey.
The woman had such a tough time getting to this stage – she’s never been a jump-up-and-down-rictus-grin type. It’s her way of being quietly proud and happy to get the pregnancy to where it is.
Contrary to what a lot of women believe, most people don’t really want to see pictures of nude pregnant women. I remember when pregnant Demi Moore posed nude on the cover of Vanity Fair, and nobody cared.
Geronnie, I think if she were doing it for herself and hubby she wouldn’t want them published. But that’s just me.
I don’t think they are for anyone but Nicole & Keith. & I’m pretty sure they don’t give a tinker’s damn whether or not other people “approve” of them having keepsakes
Sorry, Mairead, that was wrong of me. Wrist duly slapped. 😳
If some of them are for publication, then I’m sure they’ll go the way of Vanity Fair or something vaguely upmarketish. Although it’s a bit old hat now, this front cover naked pregnant woman thing, particularly when it’s been so devalued over the years since Demi Moore did it.
I misunderstood then. If they are for her and Keith, that’s sweet.
I’m not just looking for an opportunity to bash her. I swear. LOL I don’t like pics of naked pregnant bellies in the least celeb or lady down the street. Feels intrusive to me.
I agree with her wanting to take pics and show it off. She’s proud to be where she is and shes wanted it for a while. I would rather see her pictures than Christina’s(not that I want to see any but if I had to choose). I’m happy for her.
What is it with these vain and arrogant celebrities who think the world is interested in seeing their naked pregnancy? Spare me, I don’t give a shit.
Demi Moore did it and the world was interested Cindy because it was ground breaking and new. Now its hackneyed and old and reeks of narcissism.
Nicole is sweet and classy.
She tried for a baby for a long time and I am happy for her.
I was actually thinking about getting my picture taken once I would be pregnant. That is just a special time and I would want to remember how I looked like and celebrate the memory.
Oh, and about not using Botox while pregnant.
CB. you should be praising her for putting her unborn’s safety as top priority and not not criticize her for having wrinkles.
Finally, a celebrity who understands that looking beautiful should come second (not that she is not beautifl, Nicole is one of the most beautiful woman in the world).
I applaud her for doing what is best for her unborn and not acting selfish.
She is beautiful and will have a beautiful baby. I’m sure if this is her only pregnancy, she wants the pictures to remember it all.
She doesnt so much wanna take a pic of her belly but remember what her face looks like with out botox…..
i hope she doesn’t get those photos published b/c who would want to see a 40 yr old skeleton naked? she’s so ugly, and if she thinks that people actually think she’s good looking she’s freakin crazy. she’s a washed up wanna-b.
Okay, if the pictures are only for her and Keith…then that’s fine, but they really don’t need to be broadcasting it to the world!!! My auntie met her on a movie set and went up to say hi and Nicole told her that as the star of the movie, she did not have time to talk to ..and I quote .. “try-hards who want to be me”. And that fat pregnant slut makes people carry around an umbrella after her to keep the sun of her pale-ass skin! High maintenance much?! And since nobody else has said anything about this ..SUNDAY ROSE KIDMAN URBAN IS A SHITTY NAME! they should have called their girl something normal…like Marie (lol =) because calling a kid Sunday is bad enough, without adding Kidman Urban onto the end. Nicole Kidman needs to stay inside because nobody wants to see her fat stomach and anorexic body spread across page 1. And I’m in no way trying to be mean to pregnant women because most of them look really nice when they’re pregnant…but what is with holding your clothing under your stomachs in (celeb) photos? It looks stupid and like they are trying SOOOOO hard to show off that they’re pregnant. Nicole Kidman is NOT pretty and she needs to stay inside for all of her pregnancy so the rest of us normal people don’t have to watch her flaunt her fat stomach filled with a stupidly named child and give up on that fugly idiot Keith Urban. She’s a fake and a bitch. Go die.
Who made her dress? Valentino? It’s soooo lovely.
I want to have sex with nicole.
then he will be pregnant.
