Model Marisa Miller is showing off her baby bump and sharing pregnancy tips in a new spread for Allure magazine. The Sports Illustrated favorite is expecting her first child with music producer hubby, Griffin Guess.
"It's important to really show off the belly,” she explained. “For some reason, for me, from the side, it looks the biggest, so that's what I tried to do."
Miller added, "I had never even owned a scale before, but gaining weight is part of charting your progress. Yes, I was seeing numbers I'd never seen before, but I let go of that because I had a new goal and focus."
Marisa attended Pilates five days per week through her second trimester, but had to slow down as she entered her third. “It's so modified now, mostly stretching and breathing. It's easy to feel swollen and puffy, and moving really helps with the circulation."
Miller is also avoiding stretch marks thanks to a recipe she found on actress Molly Sims' blog. The combo includes “shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, and Vitamin E. I made it myself, boiling the ingredients, and I poured it into mason jars. I've loved the community of women who share their tips."
