Marisa Miller is the latest celebrity to pose semi-nude while pregnant.
The 34-year-old supermodel, who has appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated and has modeled for Victoria's Secret lingerie, announced in June that she is expecting her first child with husband Griffin Guess, a record producer.
She poses topless, with her hair and arms covering her chest and her baby bump exposed, in exclusive photos published in Allure magazine.
"I always felt, even before I got pregnant, that it's better to accentuate your curves," she told Allure in an exclusive interview posted on November 30. "A lot of women try to tuck their butt in or kind of slouch because they're trying to hide. Obviously, you can't suck it in, but it's important to really show off the belly. For some reason, for me, from the side it looks the biggest, so that's what I tried to do."
Miller told Allure she had never owned a scale before she got pregnant, adding: "Yes, I was seeing numbers I'd never seen before, but I let go of that because I had a new goal and focus. It's an adjustment, but it helps having a lot of positive support."
The supermodel and her husband have been married since April 2006. Miller, born Marisa Bertetta, was previously married to a Los Angeles surfing contest promoter named Jim Miller from 2000 to 2002.
In May, Miller starred in a commercial for Buick Enclave. The Santa Cruz native joins "Mission Impossible" actor Ving Rhames and NBA star Shaquille O'Neal as a representative for Buick.
Miller has also served as a spokesmodel for the NFL in 2010 (see photos) and Harley Davidson motorcycles.
The supermodel has also dabbed in acting - she appeared in episodes of "Entourage" and "Gary Unmarried" and co-stars with Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges in the film R.I.P.D., which is set for release in July 2013.
