Nikki Reed revealed a few days ago that she is pregnant with her first child.
And on Monday she posted another photo of her blossoming baby bump to her Instagram.
The canny actress, 28, who is married to Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder, killed two birds with one stone as she used her pregnancy look to also promote her sustainable clothing line.
Bumping along: Pregnant Nikki Reed shared another snap of her blossoming baby bump with fans on Monday as she promoted her Bayou With Love clothing line on her Instagram
The Twilight star is pictured in the snap with a hand tenderly placed on the top of her belly while wearing ‘The Nikki Dress,’ a jersey knit frock from her Bayou With Love brand that retails for $200.
The loose-fitting charcoal gray number has over-sized arm holes, slits up to the knees and a neckline that allows it to be work off-the-shoulder.
And the savvy businesswoman added in the online dress description that ‘Mamas to be will also love this dress!’
Nikki had shared her exciting baby news with fans last Thursday by sharing a photo of her husband of two years placing a tender kiss on her pregnant belly.

Alongside the photo, in which she’s wearing one of her clothing line’s flowing light blue chambray dress, Nikki wrote a sweet message to her unborn child.
‘Hi Little One,’ she wrote. ‘I know you, but only because I feel you. How is it possible to love someone so much already?’
She went on: ‘All I know for sure is it’s the strongest feeling I’ve ever felt. We’ve been sharing this body for quite some time, and we’ve already experienced so much together. We can’t wait to meet you… Love, Your parents.’
