Diedrie on

She looks beautiful! Congrats.

Christie on

Just let it all hang out…get it Nicole! I love when pregant women don’t care and wear bikini’s its sooo cute.

Noelle on

I think she looks fabulous!!! Pregnancy suits her so well. I hope she keeps a bit of that baby weight after she gives birth; she looks really healthy.

Tarsha on

I agree Noelle…..pregnancy does agree with her!

Grayson's Girl on

Go Nicole! Let that baby bump hang out girl! She looks so cute in that bikini, I hope she keeps that weight on because it looks fantastic on her. Happy Birthday to her!

gianna on

She looks so cute, she isn’t big for being almost 6 months.

Michelle on

She looks sooooooooo beautiful.
I kinda feel bad, looks like she just noticed the paparazzi and is pissed.

Annoyomus on

gianna- I was thinking the exact same thing! In fact, IMO, she looks smaller in these pics than she does with clothes on! In a few of these pics, she doens’t look that much bigger than Christina (which makes sense, since their babies are due at about the sametime).

k on

holy crap, she’s freaking adorable!

gianna on

Yea I agree annoyomous christina and nicole look about the same size belly wise, which like you said makes sense because they are due around the same time and also were both very small petite girls to begin with.

MsCarla on

OMG! She’s never looked better! Go Nicole!

Philippa on

it’s not fair, she looks better in a bikini than i do and i’m not even pregnant LOL

na just kidding, she looks gorgeous!!!

Nicole on

Nicole looks amazing! I hope she continues to stay healthy. I love the way her and Joel are so in love and how he fawns over her. That’s the way pregnant woman should be treated! =)

brindlegirl on

I’m glad to see her comfortable in her skin!

She looks great!!

amy on

She looks fantastic! I am really, truly happy for her and Joel!

Jenny on

She looks so cute.

Off Topic: What is Nicole’s ethnicity?

Doreen on

Nicole is looking soooo cute with the baby bump!! You go girl! She sure filled out up top too–A LOT!! :)Can’t wait to see this baby in several months to come!

Crystal on

Happy Birthday Nicole!
Her baby bump is so cute! I love her bikini too!

Althea on

Is it just me or her belly looks a bit weird in its bottom left part in the last picture? lol

Anyway, she looks adorable! I wish her all the best with her pregnancy and her baby.

Kaley on

Nicole looks so healthy and beautiful. Happy Birthday Nicole!

meg on

she does only have a tiny bump but i wouldnt compare her to others. i had 2 friends pregnant at the same time, one didnt show till her 32nd week and then she just popped and the other showed from about 10 weeks.

Bianca on

To Jenny: She is of Hispanic descent, but when asked she always says she is black lol :)

Anyway she looks great and I would love to find a bikini like that….

Princess on

Awwww… she looks amazing. I love that she can go out in her bikini and rock it. I can’t wait to see her and that angel of hers.

Melea on

She looks AMAZING. Has put on so much healthy weight. I sure hope she keeps a little “chunk” on her after the baby is born. This is one girl who won’t have a problem getting back into shape after the baby is born.

Anon on

She is NOT Hispanic…. She is Black… adopted by 2 Black people. That blond hair is just throwing you guys off! Why would you not believe what she says about her own racial makeup?

Renee on

I always thought that she was biracial.I thought her birth mom was hispanic while her birth father was black?

Leslie on

Aw, what a sweet belly–she’s looking great!

C on

I agree with everyone else lol. Nicole does look cute with that baby bump! She really made a change and I am so happy for her and Joel!

Regarding her race…Nicole is multiracial. She is of Caucasion, Black Creole, and Mexican descent. But like someone said above, she considers herself to be just black (she said so on Tyra).

Nicole is multiracial, and if she wants to classify herself as Black, its perfectly acceptable. FYI: Just because someone can be classified as “hispanic’ or ‘latino’ does not mean they are not black also. Latino is not a race, it is a category that covers a huge range of phenotypes and ethnic heritage. Latinos can be black, white, mixed race, ingigenous and every color of the rainbow.
