Vanessa Minnillo, who is expecting her first child with Nick Lachey, played a fun "quid pro quo" little game with her Twitter followers this week - she had them show her photos of their baby bumps.

In return, the TV personality posted a silhouette photo of her own pregnant figure. The 31-year-old is seen from the side sitting in shallow water in an ocean backdrop. She made it her new Twitter background picture.

"#MaternityMonday: Let's embrace our changing bodies!" she Tweeted on Monday. "Show me ur bump & I'll show u mine! Let's get creative!"

After at least 20 responses, she thanked her fans a day later.

"Thanks for sharing all your Beautiful baby bumps & embracing your bodies!" she Tweeted on Tuesday. "As promised, here's one @NickSLachey took."

Minnillo, who also goes by Vanessa Lachey, and her husband wed in July 2011. Lachey, known for the pop group 98 Degrees, announced her pregnancy while guest hosting the ABC show "LIVE! with Kelly" with main star Kelly Ripa in March. This is their first child.

The 38-year-old singer recently shared some non-baby related news - he and fellow 98 Degrees alum Drew Lachey, his brother, announced on Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show on Wednesday that they will reunite with their former group members Justin Jeffre and Jeff Timmons for one gig that is part of the Summer Mixtape Festival in August. The group formed in the late 1990s and split in 2002.
