The actress celebrated her motherhood journey on Sunday by showing off her very first baby bump, in all its natural, totally nude glory.
According to her caption, the 45-year-old Goop founder was pregnant with the older of her two children when the revealing image was taken. Apple Martin, whose father is Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, turns 14 on May 14, making it a double celebration of sorts for the family.
Paltrow’s not the only star who chose to share a private pregnancy photo for Mother’s Day. Actor Ian Somerhalder marked wife Nikki Reed’s first Mother’s Day as a parent by posting a nude maternity photo from her pregnancy with their daughter, Bodhi Soleil, who turns 1 in July.
Somerhalder himself took the photo, which was “liked” by Reed on Instagram. Like Paltrow, she is completely unclothed and using her hand to cover her chest.
Many fans were touched by the Vampire Diaries star’s tribute to his wife, saying they “need someone like [him]” in their lives.
So, the public approves. Whether or not the “babies” themselves will — kids will be kids, after all — remains to be seen.
