The Secret Life of an American Teenager star Beverley Mitchell recently shared photos from her maternity portrait session by Rita Earl Photography on her blog at People. Mitchell and her husband Michael Cameron are expecting their first child, a daughter, this April.
“We shot the images at just about my 39th week so I am ready to pop!” she writes. ” Honestly, I was a little hesitant and didn’t know how the photos would turn out, but am blown away and so incredibly grateful to have them as we embark on this next great adventure. “
“There is something I noticed about the shoot that I definitely see reflected in the pictures — I have never been so calm and comfortable in my body,” the 7th Heaven alum continues. “It’s quite remarkable given that I am so awkward, unstable and borderline uncomfortable as I head towards the finish line.”
Known well for her role as Jessica Biel’s little sister Lucy Camden in the popular 7th Heaven Mitchell adds, “It is still so mind-blowing to me that in just days we will meet the little one who has been tumbling, kicking and rolling around in my belly. I have just finally gotten used to all these little movements and I have fallen in love with them — it’s so crazy to think that they will stop! I just got good at being pregnant and soon I won’t be — it’s a bit of a trip.
I have to end this entry by saying that throughout this entire process, I have fallen more deeply in love with my husband. Michael has not only been my rock, my champion, my hero, he has also been the most incredible man I could have ever asked for.
So sweet. Love her! Can’t wait to welcome the new one. It’s been refreshing sharing theses moments with her.
