A History of Pregnant Celebrities Posing Naked on Magazine Covers
Demi Moore (1991)
The cover that started it all. Photographer Anne Leibovitz shot Demi Moore for the August 2001 issue of Vanity Fair when she was seven months pregnant with her second child, Scout. Moore's crossed-arms pose across her chest sparked a two-decades long trend and almost a rite of passage for expectant celebrities to celebrate their pregnancies with a magazine shoot.
Cindy Crawford (1999)
The supermodel and soon-to-be mom graced the cover of W for the June 1999 cover.
Monica Bellucci (2004)
Italian actress Monica Bellucci liked posing pregnant and naked for the July 2004 Vanity Fair Italy cover so much that she did it again in May 2010.

The queen of pop posed for Harper's Bazaar's August 2006 issue while pregnant with her second son, Jayden.
