Miranda Kerr Bares Her Baby Bump

Miranda Kerr Bares Her Baby Bump

Mom-to-be Miranda Kerr bares her gorgeous baby bump in the December edition of W magazine. In the family issue, other celeb parents such as Katherine Heigl, Jenna Jameson, Usher and Madonna open up about the importance of family.

“For me, family is life,” says Miranda, 27, who was photographed in the buff at six and half months pregnant. “The decision to start one wasn’t complex at all,” the supermodel says and adds that she was in Paris when she found out she was expecting her first child with husband Orlando Bloom. “I was wondering why I’d been so sick.”

The newlyweds are banking on a gender surprise in the delivery room: “We’re keeping it a surprise.” Miranda has no issues with putting her professional ambitions on hold. “My career has been wonderful, but it’s not my life. I don’t feel pressure to get back to work.” As for the long-term future, the Aussie native plans on a happy family life. “My goal involves a hammock, a vegetable patch, and a solar-powered house. And I hope to eventually get there.”

Not only did Katherine Heigl and her daughter Naleigh grace the cover of the magazine, they also posed with their family (from left: Katherine Heigl, photographed in Los Angeles with daughter Naleigh, 23 months; mother Nancy; nephew Jake, 1; nephew Jason, 12; niece Madison, 9; and sister Meg, 35).

“Three or four days before I traveled to Atlanta to shoot Life as We Know It, I became Naleigh’s mother,” Katherine says. “I was about to play a woman who inherits a baby, and I was experiencing the same things as my character. I didn’t really want to let Naleigh out of my sight, but it’s not terribly realistic to have a baby in a trailer 12 to 14 hours a day,” the new mom says. Naleigh was born in Korea with a congenital heart problem that was corrected through open-heart surgery before Katherine and her husband, musician Josh Kelley, adopted her.

Katherine and her mother Nancy are very close-knit. Nancy has been Katherine’s manager since she began acting as a child and she now co-produces her films. “My sister, Meg, is Korean,” the Grey’s Anatomy alum says. “I hope, one day, she and Naleigh will be able to talk about what it’s like to be adopted.” Naleigh has been welcomed by a big family — as well as Katherine’s six dogs. “I knew there was no way in hell I was going to get rid of any of my dogs to make room for a baby,” Katherine jokes. “Naleigh loves them. Sometimes it reminds me of The Jungle Book. I’m like, Oh, my God—she’s being raised by animals.”

“I really don’t think I need to say, ‘Mommy was a porn star,’” Jenna Jameson says of explaining her former profession to Jesse and Journey, her 1 1/2-year-old twin sons with partner Tito Ortiz. “I feel like they’re going to know me and think, Mommy loved us so much that she quit everything and made us her job. And that’s what I did. The moment I decided to have children, I quit. I won’t even do a Maxim cover,” says the 37-year-old former porn star. Jenna says she was surprised to find herself a natural at breastfeeding, despite four implant operations—the last to have them removed. “I thought: I’m getting rid of these things. I don’t need them anymore.”

Raised in Las Vegas, the daughter of a showgirl and a cop, Jenna sold her $30 million porn empire to Playboy in 2006 and now lives in Huntington Beach, Calif. “It’s a really beautiful family community. And here I’m not ‘Jenna Jameson’; I’m just one of the moms who walk a double stroller every day,” she says. “I’m a normal girl with all the same worries and insecurities. I just happen to have done porn.”

“When you put the passion between a man and a woman up against having children, it doesn’t hold a candle. I’ve never known passion like what my children have helped me feel,” says divorced dad Usher, who shares custody of sons Cinco, 3 this month, and Naviyd, 2 in December, with ex-wife Tameka Foster.

“Mine was a little more of a rock star’s world before. When you have to childproof your house, everything changes—your furniture selection, your car selection,” he says of fatherhood. “You become a lot more conscious, or at least I did.” These days, he enjoys living in both worlds. “I’m here sitting by the pool with my kids just enjoying the simple moments of life. And then later on tonight I’ll have a party, the kids will go to bed, and the other Raymond will come out.”

“We have rules,” Madonna said about parenting her 14-year-old daughter Lourdes. “She can wear makeup when she goes to parties and special events. And ya know, there’s always a little bit of a discussion about how short the skirt is…or is there some cleavage showing. And I always say to her, ‘Do you want everybody to be staring at your breasts, or do you want people to talk to you?’”

The mother-daughter duo recently launched their Material Girl juniors clothing line for Macy’s. “The ’80s are another huge obsession of mine,” Lourdes said, and added, “which is totally amazingly awesome because Material Girl…HELLO! It’s like ’80s themed, which pretty much rocks, so yeah.”

“I think we complement each other, disagree on a few things,” said Madonna. “There’s definitely clashes,” Lourdes added, “but it all works out.” Naturally, the Material Mom had the last word. “I wouldn’t have worn this flannel shirt thing,” she added, pointing to her daughter’s garment, “but she looks good in it.”

    I don’t get why her nipples are blurred… Everybody can easily see that she is naked and she wouldn’t be more naked if you saw her nipples. As if they were offensive, while the rest of the body wasn’t.
    This is a beautiful photo and I’m just sorry that the blur destroys it somehow.

    • Lisa Weber

      The picture has been changed.

        Thank you!

    Kudos to CBS for posting the actual pic as intended by the actress!

  • Anna

    The photos are beautiful. They look so natural, the way Katherine Heigl’s family are all just doing their thing instead of looking straight at the camera and how Miranda’s pose does not include the cramped pose to keep her nipples covered that you normally see.

  • Anonymous

    Agreed, it is a beautiful photograph.

    Gorgeous! Wouldn’t we all want to look this amazing during pregnancy??

    • Anon

      I would like to this good period! lol

  • courtney

    how you look during pregnancy has a lot to do with genetics and the fact that Miranda is a model means she’s probably gained the bare minimum of weight about 21lbs at 6 1/2 months. as normal weight women are recomended to gain between 25-35lbs during pregnancy. though models are usually underweight so are recomended to gain 27-42lbs during pregnancy

    why are her nipples sticking out like that? looks weird

      um… because she’s pregnant.

    The only problem I have is that it’s NSFW. Maybe have the “clear” photo behind the jump?

    • Anonymous

      Um, yeah. There’s a reason most “clean” websites put pictures like this behind a link, off the main page, with a clear indication that it’s NSFW. It may be an “artsy” photo, but the fact is, it’s a naked woman, and most workplaces frown on looking at pictures of naked women no matter what the context. For many people, reading this blog at work might be okay, but looking at nudity isn’t, and you really need to give people a warning so that they don’t inadvertently load this picture in a situation that could get them fired. Seriously, this is not an exaggeration – it is a real problem.

      Personally, I don’t care, since this isn’t an issue for me, but it’s pretty standard internet etiquette not to put a nude picture without a NSFW warning.

      • blair

        i agree, do what you’re getting paid to do and stop reading celebrity gossip sites while at work and you wont have to worry about getting fired.

          There’s these things called breaks… ever heard of them? Not all workplaces care if you’re on celebrity websites, but they do care if you’re looking at nude photos.

      Probably shouldn’t be looking at celebrity news/gossip sites while at work anyway. ;)

        I agree, CBS could have put some kind of “uncensored pictures inside” thing. I check these sights at school (grad school) in the library and in class… I wouldn’t expect something like this on this website.

        That said, it is a beautiful picture. Just kind caught me off guard for a site like this.

        Ever heard of a lunch break?

        • Shirilicious

          No, pray tell, what’s that?

  • Really?

    I’m sitting here on my laptop watching a movie with my 4 year old, doing my nightly check of my celebrity sites and then I see Miranda Kerr naked! Really not something I wanted to see myself or with my toddler next to me! At least put a fully clothed Family photograph on the headline then add her pictures in the gallery. I mean come on CBB!

    I don’t care if everyone thinks pregnancy is beautiful, or that she is a model or she is pregnant with Orlando Bloom’s baby…I would have liked a warning, at least TMZ gives you that! Also, at least Demi, Brittney and even Heidi covered up, I mean what happened to modesty??

    • blair

      i think it’s sad that you’re afraid for your 4 year old to see this picture. it’s not sexual, it’s just nudity. he’s going to grow up to be ashamed of his body and other naked bodies.

      • Anonymous

        You are really all missing the point, which is that it is considered standard practice not to place nudity on a site that normally does not feature it, unless you give people a warning first and place it behind a link. It doesn’t matter whether the nudity is “tastful” or art or whatever. The point is that you give people a choice about whether to view it or not. I personally have no problem with it. But that is not the point – it’s not about me, and it’s not about you. Putting it behind a link along with a NSFW warning allows you to view if you so choose, or for someone else not to view it if they don’t want to. Doesn’t matter why. Why do some of you have a problem with that?

        • Anonymous

          This is their site, they can put what they want up. The people who run this site and most people commenting are obviously comfortable this innocent picture of a pregnant mother to be. If your not there are other sites that have blurred this picture for those who are closed minded people and easily offended

            “Anonymous said: And you still don’t get it.”

            Well, I get what you’re saying anyways. Some people are dense ;)

    • Lena

      Like Blair, I think that seing a naked woman won’t hurt your toddler at all. Now he/she knows there is at least one more person in the world who looks like mommy ;)

      But I would never surf the internet with my toddler watching. There are much worse things to stumble upon than nudity!

  • Mikki

    Miranda looks beautiful. I can hardly wait to see baby Bloom!

  • nosoupforyou

    There is nothing “sad” about it. A 4 year old should not be exposed to nude photographs in a magazine.

    • Anonymous

      why not?
      please could somebody explain this to me?
      I`m from Europe and we think nudity like this is tasteful and quite normal. There is a difference to pornography.
      It`s just a pregnant female body, nothing else. Whats disturbing for a child?

  • Anonymous

    I think this picture is beautiful. I don’t think you guys did anything wrong by posting this pic as is. This site is about celebrity parents and I expected to see pictures like this when going to parenting and/or celebrity gossip site. If your four y/o is on your lap when you go to sites like these then shame on you! You never know when there will be pic with a breast feeding mom etc.. up

    • Anonymous

      And again, you are missing the point. It has nothing to do with whether the picture is beautiful or tasteful. No one is saying they shouldn’t have posted it, merely that it should be behind a link with a warning indicating that there is nudity, so that people can choose for themselves whether or not to view it. Did all of you just discover the internet yesterday? This is standard practice on every site that understands how the internet works.

      • Anonymous

        Are you for real? Standard practice??

      • Lena

        And not having an own opinion and going with the flow has always been a great idea…

  • Jennifer

    Should be behind the cut. However, the editors don’t read most comments! I guess you need to email Lisa directly!

    • Jennifer

      Plus, nudity = increase traffic to site = more money for the editors! Pure and simple business technique for blogs!

    Beautiful photo of Miranda but my fave is Katherine Heigl’s family.

  • Elismum

    You ever think if everybody keeps missing the point then maybe its not worth making. This is a innocent picture…period. If you get caught on gossip sites at work its your fault no matter what the content is. Its your fault. If you don’t want you kids seeing certain things don’t have them on your lap while your online. No matter what site you go on you run a risk that there will be something inappropriate on that site. Period…go up and take some responsibility seriously

      People check these site at other (appropriate) places besides work. School, the library, coffee shops, with kids in the room, etc.

    Are the three other kids in the picture of Katherine Heigal family her sister’s?

    What is wrong with a child seeing this? Have you ever taken your child to a museum? What do you think is there? BREASTS. Geez people are unbelievably uptight.

  • svea

    Seriously, many of these comments are so American :P
    I know you don’t like hearing it, but it’s rather amazing for Europeans to discover how uptight US-Americans are when it comes to nudity. It’s not sexual, it’s just nudity. If children grow up learning that there can be nudity without it being sexual, they will be more comfortable with themselves and might start getting offended by things that really matter and are truly worth getting annoyed about: violence, racism, bigotry, close-mindedness.

    • Anonymous

      Don’t forget europeans invented “close-mindedness”. Ofcourse there can be nudity without sexual. Put on nude pictures of women to a man, let’s se how appart sexual with nudity can be…

      For a kid is different cause they’re inocent so if they happened to see this I would confortably explain them (because they WOULD ask questions) but I’m not going to promote them to see “nude art”.

      Female body is beautiful but personally I don’t want to see every woman breast’s I meet/or any woman whatsoever.

      amen svea

      I was thinking the same thing. All those who feel the pic should have been blurred had better not travel to Europe with their kids.
      We get nudity in commercials, TV shows that are aired during the day, etc.

      It’s a beautiful picture. The pose is far more natural because she’s not trying to hide her breasts.

  • Anonymous

    thank you cbs that you put the photo without blurr. it is one of the most beautiful pregnant woman photo and that is the way i see it.

  • Anna

    Why would you need a warning for a picture of a naked woman? Warning against what? You think your child will have a trauma from seeing a nipple?

    I think it’s great that this website is showing the photo as it should be. CBB has a black bar over her breasts as if her breasts are criminal or something.

    Don’t check gossip websites during work time. During lunchtime I don’t see the problem with this photo and neither should your boss.

  • Anonymous

    I can’t believe your four year old never saw your breasts. As an earlier comment said a breast feeding pic could be here anytime would you get fired for that. How about viewing a museum website which could contain nude pics? C’mon lighten up.

  • Anonymous

    I Think people should be more concerned about supporting the behavior of some celebs like Charlie sheen then scrutinizing a tasteful pic like this on an equally tasteful site. Did u tune into 2 1/2 men? That story was everywhere I know no pics but drunken coke rage possibly naked with a porn queen did your four year old tune into TMZ with that night?

    thanks.

    I was hoping to read the comments and not read uptight comments but alas, here they are. Some people want to run as far as they can from anything that is natural.
    What’s funny is BREASTS ARE MADE FOR BABIES!

    Okay, so it’s no problem when Kim Kardashian sluts around and poses for Playboy for thousands of perverted men to see, but it’s indecent and distasteful when Miranda Kerr takes a nude maternity photo?

  • Anonymous

    I would have liked a warning or just add it in the Gallery. I did not realize CBS really needed publicity on it’s site. My home computers block pop-up sites and anything and everything I do not want my Children to see. Although this is a tasteful portrait I would have rather choose to view it myself if I had wanted to see it, I did not need it right THERE in my face. The magazine has several other pictures to choose from and CBS could have choose one of those but instead it took the “Let’s choose this one to get more traffic” direction which is sad. I agree with the Mom with the 4 year old. Nobody is trying to shield nudity but I would rather have a choice then to have it out there right front in center with no choice. At least People.com put up a block, I guess that is why Celebrity baby blog works for them now and not this baby site!
