Pregnancy is such a special time for a mum-to-be, full of magical moments - from the very first flutters of your baby’s kicks, to those days just before birth when your body is beautifully unrecognisable.


We all want to capture and immortalise those special moments, which is why so many of us turn to social media or photographers to capture and share gorgeous pregnancy shots and selfies.


If you would love the professional photography effect but you’re not feeling flush, never fear, because a magical new app is bringing pregnancy selfies to life in a way we have never seen before.


Indeed, mums all over the world are lighting up our social media feeds with their #BabyInBelly pictures, which are the results of a fantastic new phone app called PicsArt.

Through this app, people are creating the most magical imagery, with special effects allowing mums-to-be to envisage what their babies look like and meld that into their baby bump selfies.


The results are nothing short of stunning – not only do they add a completely new elements to your precious pregnancy selfie, but they bring them to life through lighting and silhouette effects.


The app is proving so popular that the ‘BabyInBelly’ hashtag is trending across social media – and we can’t stop marvelling at it.


The effects range from having your baby ‘popping out’ of a ‘pouch’ in your belly (we know, how cute?), to creating an almost ultra-sound like image of your tot inside the womb.



This is just the latest beautiful pregnancy selfie trend to take over social media. In recent times, the floral milk bat has risen in popularity. And this trend works exactly how it sounds – the mum-to-be poses in a bath full of milk, with flowers and petals scattered around her bump as it breaks the surface.


Celebrities, meanwhile, had led the rise of the nude and underwear pregnancy shoots, featuring the mum-to-be flaunting her gorgeous pregnancy shape in her favourite ‘Calvins’ or totally au natural.


What we love about the PicsArt idea is that it is so easy to create, and fits so seamlessly into our social media routine.


What do you think, mums? Will you be downloading the app? Be sure to share your gorgeous art with us, if you do!
