Inamorata founder Emily Ratajkowski has revealed she is pregnant with her first child.
The 29-year-old model shared the happy news with Vogue magazine as she put her bump on display while in a bronze silk and lace negligee. The star also said she hopes to raise her baby in a gender-neutral environment, because she does not want to ‘force gender stereotypes’ on her future child.
The I Feel Pretty actress looks to be over six months along in the new images; the father is her 33-year-old movie producer husband Sebastian Bear-McClard whom she wed in 2018.
Baby on board! Inamorata founder Emily Ratajkowski has revealed she is pregnant with her first child

‘Grateful & growing,’ the siren wrote on Instagram. Together Emily and Sebastian share a dog named Colombo.
The star also said she does not yet want to know the gender of the baby in an essay the UCLA graduate penned herself.
‘When my husband and I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?” We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then,’ began the DKNY model.
Emily said that ‘everyone laughs at this.’
She added that there is a truth to their 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. Who will this person be?’
Ratajkowski then asked: What kind of person will we become parents to?
She wondered how the child will change their lives.
‘This is a wondrous and terrifying concept, one that renders us both helpless and humbled.’ She added, ‘I like the idea of forcing as few gender stereotypes on my child as possible.’
But no matter how progressive she may hope to be, said Emily, ‘I understand the desire to know the gender of our fetus; it feels like the first real opportunity to glimpse who they might be.
‘As my body changes in bizarre and unfamiliar ways, it’s comforting to obtain any information that might make what’s coming feel more real.’

The Gone Girl actress, who did not look to have a bump when she was spotted in Brooklyn on October 21, added that she imagined having a daughter.
‘I remember playing as a child, holding baby dolls and picturing myself with a future best friend: something like the American Girl doll I owned, who had brown eyes and brown hair to mirror my own features, a smaller version of myself,’ she admitted.
When she brings this up to her therapist, the doctor explains that is relatively common.
‘Psychology du jour, she says, touts the concept that people may have children to “redo” their own childhood,’ added Emily, who is close friends with Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid.
‘They want to fix themselves and their traumas by trying again with a fresh start and a mini version of themselves.’
The star also showed off her baby bump in a video for Vogue where she was at home, without clothes on, and with her dog. ‘I’ll cherish this video as long as I live. @voguemagazine,’ said the Blurred Lined video star.
‘Thank you to my brilliant and very generous friend @lenadunham for her vision and commitment to directing this. I’m so grateful. And thank you to my other wonderful friend @eccopn for his music and to @dschneids for her editing! You all made this the most special. Written and filmed by me. Shot at home.’
