We will not take ridiculous portraits of this kid. We will not take ridiculous portraits of this kid. We might take ridiculous portraits of this kid.”

Ricci posted a mirror selfie of her bare baby bump in a bikini on Friday, August 9. “I feel like I’ve been pregnant for three years,” the Chasing Life alum wrote. “For those in the back — yes there is only one in there and no I’m not due any day now. … The thought of meeting the little (huge) critter makes all of this worth it.”
