In Hollywood, there's only one way to prep for giving birth. Have naked photos taken, obvs. Christina Aguilera has joined a slew of celebrities bearing it all with a bump. Xtina called upon Brian Bowen Smith to take the sexy prenatal photos for V Magazine. In a few of the photos, Christina 'frees the nipple' in a sheer white nightgown.
The former Mickey Mouse Club member told the magazine, "As a woman, I'm proud to embrace my body through all stages of life, staying fearless and confident in surrendering to the unknowns the future has in store."
For all those who are too young or too old to know what the heck is going on here, this is the same singer who wore crotch-less leather pants in a boxing ring.
