Okay Emily Ratajkowski, we get it: your body is perfect. Do you have to rub it in our faces all the time? 

Before announcing her pregnancy late last year, the 29-year-old model regularly treated us mere mortals to saucy snaps of her pouting and preening in itty-bitty bikinis. 

But judging by these most recent posts, her ever-growing baby bump has made her more determined than ever to get her kit off. 

Emily recently unveiled a series of images from an at-home photoshoot on Instagram that capture her heavily pregnant form in all its glory.

The revealing images show in a bathtub in her New York apartment, lying on a bed with just sweatpants on to cover her bottom and posing in an oversized jacket with her bare belly sticking out. 

Next to a series of shots, she wrote, “Just me and @renellaice at home in NYC,” referring to her friend, photographer Renell Medrano.

She also wrote the same caption next to another series of snaps, in which sunlight illuminated her as she struck various poses in silhouette before a window.

The I Feel Pretty star tied the knot with artist Sebastian Bear-McClard (31) in 2018 and this will be the couple’s first child. Earlier this month the pair celebrated their child’s arrival with an intimate baby shower at New York’s NoMad Hotel.

Emily has also been using her Instagram feed – which boasts more than 27 million followers – to promote her upcoming book, My Body.Her literary debut is a series of essays about body-positivity, which has been described as a ‘personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power of men's treatment of women’.

“Thrilled to share the cover of MY BODY. It’s surreal to pre-order my own book! Thank you to all who have shared, ordered and made me feel so supported today. Can’t wait for you all to read these essays,” Emily posted on Thursday.

She’s no stranger to making waves with her impassioned essays. 

Her pregnancy announcement in November last year was accompanied by a headline-grabbing essay published in Vogue, in which she explained why she doesn’t want to reveal the child's gender. 

"We like to respond that we won't know the gender until our child is 18 and that they'll let us know then," she said. "Everyone laughs at this. There is a truth to our line, though, one that hints at possibilities that are much more complex than whatever genitalia our child might be born with: the truth that we ultimately have no idea who – rather than what – is growing inside my belly.”
