Kristen Louelle just dropped the most gorgeous mermaid-inspired maternity pics and wrote an inspiring message alongside the snaps. The 2021 Swim Search finalist donned the Andromeda Cut-Out Maxi Dress ($235) from Solo Mio Swim.

She paired the translucent blue-to-green ombré dress featuring a baby bump cut-out with gold hoop earrings. The model sported a full face of glam, including dramatic lashes, chiseled cheekbones and a glossy nude lip.

Louelle, who is expecting her third child with former NFL player Tyler Gaffney, shared the video compilation of photos and clips with her 79,000 followers on Instagram on March 19.

“Feeling like a pregnant mermaid 🧜‍♀️,” she wrote. “@solomioswim making me feel like a goddess 🦋.”

“I am here for the curves, for the cellulite, for the big boobies, for all the things that come along with being pregnant,” Louelle added, admitting that through her first pregnancy, she tried to hide what her body was “going through.” This time around, she’s saying “screw it,” and being her authentic self—in real life and on social media.

“This is me from the inside out- I am a sexual being & I won’t hide that simply because I’m doing *the most beautiful thing a woman can do*,” she continued. “So if you’re wondering why I’ve been a crop top or bikini queen this pregnancy, it’s because I’m [unapologetic] this time around. Pregnant women can be goddesses so let’s raise them up baby.”

The couple, who already have two young boys, announced the exciting news that they were expecting again last December. The baby is due next month.
