Emily Ratajkowski is savoring the remaining months of her pregnancy with a nude selfie that makes her feel like a "fertility goddess."
The 29-year old model posted a bare Instagram portrait on Thursday as she prepares for a spring birth with husband and producer Sebastian Bear-McClard. "Sometimes I feel like Winnie the Pooh in human form, other times like a fertility goddess with a juicy butt," she wrote. "I took this on a day where I was feeling the latter.

It's trodden ground for Ratajowski, who recalled feeling sexualized as a teen model in a 2020 social media caption and in a 2019 essay for Harper's Bazaar for which she showed off armpit hair that made her feel "sexy.
