It’s not the first time a celebrity has posed nude while heavily pregnant for the cover of a magazine. First Demi Moore did it for Vanity Fair, then Cindy Crawford for W magazine, and later Britney Spears for Harper’s Bazaar. Now, Perth model Megan Gale has been photographed, clothes off, baby bump proudly showing, for the cover of Marie Claire Australia.
Upon the magazine’s newsstand release, Gale posted on her Instagram page that she was rather nervous about it all:
“It was quite a daunting experience posing for a magazine without a stitch on, a concept not new to me, but something I haven’t done for many years – and obviously never done at 30 weeks pregnant,” she wrote.
Thirty-eight year-old Gale and her 26-year-old Richmond AFL partner, Shaun Hampson, are expecting the bub will be born mid-May, while Gale says she will be taking a half-year hiatus from modelling to focus on caring for the newborn.
