Emily Ratajkowski is pregnant with her first baby. The model revealed the news with an essay, a short film, and a photo shoot with Vogue.
The film, which opens with a title card that reads “who will you be?,” shows intimate clips of Emily doing every day things throughout her pregnancy as she reads a message to her unborn child.
“There is a quietness that comes with pregnancy, a humbling. I am listening for you. I am full of wonder," she says.
"Mornings and nights, my stomach grows. It’s getting colder, an election is coming. I feel you flutter underneath my bellybutton. I want you to see the world’s potential. You feel like the world’s potential."
At the same, time, she describes her experience with pregnancy in the essay, published on Vogue’s website on October 26.
In the essay, she says that she and her husband, Sebastian Bear McClard have yet to find out their baby’s gender, and that “we won’t know the gender until our child is 18.”
She then muses on what it would be like to have a boy or a girl and what the future might hold if she has either. She also shares the physical changes she feels in her body, and talks about how “innately lonely” pregnancy is.
“Despite having a loving partner and many female friends ready to share the gritty details of their pregnancies, I am ultimately alone with my body in this experience," she wrote.
"There is no one to feel it with me—the sharp muscular aches in my lower abdomen that come out of nowhere while I’m watching a movie or the painful heaviness of my breasts that now greets me first thing every morning. My husband has no physical symptoms in “our” pregnancy, another reminder of how different a woman and man’s experience of life can be."
