Katrina Scott- The First Pregnant Lady To Appear In A Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition

Katrina Scott

Katrina Scott, an American fitness trainer, is defying pregnancy stereotypes. The 38-year-old actress is the first obviously pregnant woman to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition of May 2022, when she can be seen flaunting her baby bulge. The magazine took to Instagram to publish a photo of Scott in a bikini as well as a letter from the model and expecting mother.

Scott expressed her thankfulness by describing how women are supposed to conceal their pregnancy and return to their normal selves. They are constantly expected to act in a “selfless, vulnerable, and strong” manner. She went on to say that she wants to represent every pregnant woman and that their “bodies and brains are capable of great things.”

The magazine referred to the landmark shot as a “Major moment” in the piece.

“From Rookie of the Year in 2021 to the SI Swimsuit Issue’s FIRST EVER visibly pregnant woman, @katrinascott continues to show up and create headlines!”

She’d just undergone a surgical hysteroscopy and hormone therapy a few weeks before. Katrina Scott admitted to Today that she was reluctant when the magazine contacted to urge her to participate.

“I didn’t feel ready — [the] amount of swelling and hormones, the amount of things going on [with my body], but I said, “I’m going to consent to this even though this is such a weird moment in my body.”
