We all know former Glee star Naya Rivera is not camera-shy. In fact, since her pregnancy announcement in late February with husband Ryan Dorsey, Rivera has only amplified her public presence, posting nursery and baby shower pictures on Instagram and writing a pregnancy blog for People.
In an exclusive photo shoot with Yahoo Style, Rivera posed naked with just a fur coat draped around her shoulders, her long hair covering her boobs and one hand placed on her belly. She also posed in a gorgeous, black dress that wrapped around her baby bump perfectly.
Rivera told Yahoo Style that during her pregnancy she has been sticking to a workout routine; although it is starting to get a little harder for her now that she’s in her third trimester.
“I worked out a lot, up until probably the end of my second trimester, when things got a little more difficult. I started out doing pilates, but you can only do that for so long because of the ab workouts. So I had to stop that, and then I was doing prenatal yoga a lot, and then quit that…and then I moved on to the gym, and now I”m just doing the elliptical now and then.”
However, she already has an entire post-baby beauty plan that she wrote out to get back to her old self.
“I have an entire post-baby plan that I wrote out and continue to look at every day! I definitely need a new hair style—can’t wait for that, my hair has just been so blah—and the workout regimen is gonna be pretty serious. I love beauty products and getting my hair and makeup done—all that stuff, I incorporate into my daily life when I’m not pregnant. But while I’ve been pregnant, I really just gave up! I was like, “There’s no time and no point right now… there’s just no point!” So I’m just gonna hit restart after, and I think that’ll be fun. It’ll be like an extreme makeover.”
Rivera says she absolutely loves being pregnant, even when people online are so quick to scrutinize how she looks physically.
“…being in the public eye when you’re pregnant is really, really hard, and people can be so mean on the Internet, it’s insane. Pregnancy is such a beautiful time to me, and I feel like you should embrace your body in whatever stage it’s in. So it’s kind of hard being an actress, being a celebrity, and having people scrutinize how you physically look, and just saying the craziest things.”
