For many moms-to-be, staying pretty and fresh during pregnancy has been a perennial struggle. Despite this, one celebrity is making the task look all too easy: Sam Pinto, who is now 34 weeks pregnant, still managed to pull off a dazzling and dainty look during her latest maternity photoshoot.
In a series of posts on Instagram last week, the back-to-back “FHM Philippines Sexiest Woman in the World” shared a handful of snaps from her recent pastel-colored pictorials while sharing her pregnancy woes.
“Honestly, this is one of the hardest thing for me to accept, because everything is so BIG,” Pinto wrote. “My face, belly, feet, and yes my lips — natural filler ‘yan girl hahaha.”
“And I hear so much scary, horror stories about pregnancy and giving birth that I’m already getting terrified and nervous just thinking about it,” she also shared.
To shun her pregnancy shivers away, Pinto looked to listening to “pregnancy affirmations” as a solution which has helped her feel “so much calmer, happier, and better.”
“I welcome the changes in my body,” Pinto assured herself.
In an earlier post, she also expressed her excitement for the arrival of her baby girl, which she plans to name Mia Aya Semerad.
“My love for you will grow every day just like you will.. Even still inside my belly,” she lovingly dedicated to her imminent daughter.
It has been a year of highs for Pinto thus far. It was back in March when she and partner Anthony Semerad tied the knot after being together since October 2018 and being engaged since November 2019. The ceremony took place in a dreamy sunset wedding on the roof deck of Conrad Manila.
Then, just two months later, the newlyweds announced that they were expecting their first daughter.
“Every week is a step closer to meeting my bundle of joy,” one of Pinto’s Instagram captions read.
