See Heather Morris’s Beautiful Beach Bump

Give me a b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!

As she bids farewell to the halls of McKinley High, actress Heather MorrisGlee‘s good-natured Cheerios cheerleader, Brittany S. Pierce — is gearing up for her next role: motherhood.

Morris, 26, and her boyfriend Taylor Hubbell are currently expecting their first child together, and to make the memories last, the mom-to-be enlisted the help of Amy & Jordan Photography.

Shot on the shores of Malibu, Calif. on July 7, the series of photographs show Morris in a fitted blue maxi dress, walking along the splashing surf with her long blonde hair framing her face.

“Heather looked stunning and she’s very excited to be a mom,” photographer Amy Demos tells PEOPLE.

With her character accepting an early admissions offer to MIT on the season four finale, Morris will not be returning to Glee this fall.

She is my favorite on Glee, sad she won’t be returning 😦 What a gorgeous picture!

Shane Vendrell on

She might show up for a guest appearance but she won’t be on every episode like before.

megan on

Can’t wait to find out if it’s true that the baby is Chord’s.

Briana on

WTF! No.

Damn, what people come up with now a days.

heyatruth on

I’m pretty sure it’s Naya’s.

Briana on

Lol yeah. If not T’s, it has a better chance of being Naya’s than Chord’s.

Lily on

Aww Heather, so beautiful.

Briana on

She’s so beautiful. I’m really going to miss her on Glee. Hopefully she’ll do some projects when she gives birth but if not, that’s fine. It’s understandable if she just wants to spend time with her child w/o the long hours of shooting. I’ll still be a fan and love her.

Well, if Ryan Murphy had done a better job of writing the season 4 finale, we would have known she would not be returning. Wishing her all the best of luck with the baby and mommyhood!

Um….she accepted early acceptance to MIT with no one going with her to further her storyline, mommy2eandl. That only left her either leaving or doing guest appearances. Simple deduction my dear Watson, you shouldn’t have to have everything spelled out for you. It was quite obvious. I was sad to see her go and now I see the reason.

Beautiful picture. Best wishes for a healthy baby.

That is one BEAUTIFUL maternity shot. Took my breath away. So refreshing compared to the naked belly ones that been done millions of times.

I still can’t believe that she is pregnant. She’s still Brittany to me.

Chloe on

She looks beautiful! Congrats to her and Taylor. But darn am I going to miss Brittany, I loved her character!

Jordy on

Hahahaha her character gets offered to enroll at MIT?? Yeah… that’s as believable as a fairy giving birth to a cow in the middle of a floating island.

Stacey on

Beautiful, Gorgeous. I think Heather will be back to Glee for a few episodes.

Amanda on

Looks like she’s Having a girl!!

Theresa on

Any chance she is wearing blue in this pic, could mean she is expecting a boy?

Tara on

Jasmine on

Glee has a habit of leaving things completely unfinished.. How did Sam and Mercedes break up? Anyone, anyone?

simonealexandra on

Marge on

Wow… that took my breath away! She’s so beautiful!!!

This is very classy, nice that it’s not one of those tacky nude preggo pics.

Jessi on

She looks absolutley gorgeous! Congratulations to her & Taylor on their little blessing!! She will be missed on Glee though. Britney is one of the funniest characters on the show.

Patti on

Great pic but she is one of the homeliest actresses!

You obviously haven’t watched the series from the beginning. Heather’s character is actually a genius, she just hides it well because she cares more about cheerleading and being popular.

MJ on

Lovely picture. Heather looks beautiful.

Ali on

I am confused as to why people think Ryan Murphy didn’t write it in that she was going to MIT, it was in the finale or the one just before. And Chord’s character is some sort of math genius.

ummm…she’s not even a bit homely. I wish I looked a third as good as she did, and you probably do to but its easy to be incredibly rude behind anonymity. She looks beautiful and this picture is fantastic.

Jen on

What a hysterical way for her to exit the show! She is one of my favorites. May she be blessed with continued good health, happiness, and success.

Phoebe on

Heather looks so radiant! Congratulations on the upcoming birth of your first child. It’s bittersweet, given everything that’s happening, but new life is always worth celebrating. Hopefully, this new life will gently remind everyone that there is still some good in the world.

Nikita on

She is stunning…but I am so sad she is off of Glee…her character is the main reason why I watched 😦 No more Brittney-Isms
