Weight gain during pregnancy is much feared and often talked about, and rarely do women reveal their actual number. Ricci has experienced a 60 lbs weight gain which is more than the recommended 25-35 lbs but she already knows that and doesn't need to be shamed.

We think she looks so amazing and powerful. There is nothing more beautiful than the raw beauty and strength of a pregnant woman. Our bodies are amazing!

It's important for other pregnant moms to see that even a beautiful actress can be susceptible to surprising and unwanted weight gain. It happens and it's normal. The pregnant body will do what it needs to nourish your baby and that's all that really matters.

Ricci has well documented her pregnancy on her personal Instagram and fans have seen her baby bump grow since the beginning. Nearing her due date things are probably getting a little uncomfortable for her frame but she's in the home stretch! Ricci and Amell have been together since 2008, were engaged in 2014, and have been married since 2016.

The longtime Canadian couple may be the most attractive couples on this planet and we're sure their baby will be beautiful. The revealed their pregnancy in April.
