Emily Ratajkowski shares steamy throwback photos to celebrate son Sylvester Apollo Bear’s first birthday.
The “Gone Girl” star, 30, has been nothing but open with her Instagram fans about her adventures as a pregnant woman. Today, Ratajkowski shared photos of herself that got tons of rave responses from fans.
Baring It All
In her last months of pregnancy, the model had a photoshoot wherein she posed fully nude, flaunting her baby bump.
The first image showed Ratajkowski lounging in a bathtub filled with water. She lay on her side while covering her privates with her arm and hands as she looked straight into the camera. The angle exposed her bare derrière, with her body being put on full display without any filters.
The next slide showed Ratajkowski standing sideways in the tub with her hands placed on her chest to cover her nipples. A swipe to the right featured the actress sitting on her legs on a pink chair. She was still snapped from the side as she obscured her assets with her right hand. The last snapshot showed her little blue-eyed boy sitting on the bed. Check out the photos here.

Her View On Feminism
Ratajkowski, a two-time SI Swimsuit model, opened up about her views on feminism and every woman’s right to be exactly who she wants to be during a feature for Harper’s Bazzar Arabia.
“I think a lot of people really feel that the idea of a woman being sexual or being sexualized is the opposite of feminism,” Emily said. “When I feel like, in some ways, that conversation itself can be oppressive to women, because you’re telling them how to dress and how to act, which is actually the opposite of feminism.”
On Growing Up
During the chat, she also shared what it was like learning how to deflect attention at a very early age.
“I was a 12 year old [with D-cup breasts] but people looked at me as a 21 year old,” she explained. “It was really difficult for me to understand and to come to terms with – that identity, people’s perception of me… It’s hard for a 12-year-old girl, who is basically feeling like ‘Why don’t you just leave me alone,’ because I don’t see men having to justify what they wear or how they express themselves.”
