Intimate portrait confirms Sasha Pivovarova\'s pregnancy

Sasha Pivovarova has been absent from the latest catwalk shows and fashion editorials due to a rumored pregnancy pause in her career. A recent photograph released by the model herself came out as evidence that she's really been dedicating only to having a rested and blissful time expecting her first child.

The beautiful black and white picture, taken by Sasha's photographer husband Igor Vishnyakov, portraits the 27-year-old-russian topless, in a long loose skirt, tenderly embracing her lovely pregnant body. The large size of her bump suggests her to be eight or nine months along, which means soon there will be news about Sasha and baby expected in secret.

Although she's managed to keep her baby bump blossoming in private so far, the so close to term model ended up joining the celebrities' trend of posing nude late in their pregnancies.
