Vanessa Lachey Shows Off Her Bump at the Beach

09/09/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

She’s riding the pregnancy wave!

Mom-to-be Vanessa Lachey showed off her baby belly in a printed one-piece swimsuit while letting the waters crash around her in a picturesque photo posted to Instagram on Monday.

“Beach time with Baby Girl,” she captioned the serene snapshot.

The sandy shores are a special place for the actress, 33, and her growing family. Not only is it where Lachey first told husband Nick that she was pregnant with their first child — son Camden John, who will turn 2 on Friday — but it’s also the same spot the couple announced they were expecting a daughter.

In July, the VH1 host posted a picture of their son running on the beach alongside the words, “It’s a girl,” written in the sand.

“Can’t think of a better way to celebrate 3 years of marriage to my beautiful Vanessa than this,” he wrote.

Why “mom to be”? First child doesn’t bestow this title upon you?

Finally a woman who is pregnant and is not in a bikini. She looks beautiful. Blessings for a healthy baby girl.

Sneaker wave alert, girl. jeez….

It’s a fundus. It’s not a belly or a bump. It’s a fundus. What’s the big deal, two syllables, easy to say, as easy as “fumble” and football fans say that all the time.

and jeez, there’s is no “baby girl,” ick.

I like her hat and I like Camden’s bald spot (can you say fontanel????)

Tiff on

To “notmyname”–yes, I can say “fontanelle”, lol. And by the way, the soft spot is on top of the head, not the back. Pretty sure that’s the wind, or windanel, moving his hair from the back.

Thank you, People for posting an article on a couple who seem very happy in the traditional confines of marriage. Vanessa and Nick are not big newsmakers because they lead their married life with love and a real sense of maturity. Their son is adorable and I am happy that they soon will be blessed with a little girl. They must be a little bit boring because they are living their lives as a family. I can’t help it, I really admire them!

To “notmyname”… did you complete high school?? The “fundus” is part of the uterus… pregnant or not. Maybe you possibly meant “fetus”.
Ahhhh how I love dingbats trying to look smart… while being insulting for no good reason. You just made my day!! Thanks
