Pregnant Zonnique Pullins, 24, Shares Beyoncé-Like Maternity Pics With Her Bare Baby Bump
Zonnique Pullins channeled Beyoncé's 2017 viral baby bump photo with a maternity photo shoot of her own. Just like Beyoncé did, Zonnique posed with her bare bump against an ethereal backdrop of flowers in multiple elegant outfits.
Zonnique Pullins, 24, delivered major Beyoncé vibes in her new pregnancy photo shoot. The stepdaughter of T.I., 40, looked like a goddess straight out of a fairy-tale book — just like Beyoncé, 39, did in her 2017 pregnancy announcement — in her photo shoot taken by Will Sterling for PEOPLE, which Zonnique shared pictures of on Dec. 9. In the series of stunning photos, Zonnique posed with her bare baby bump on a set transformed into a flower garden that could’ve served as the venue for the tea party in Alice in Wonderland, created by the luxury event designing company Christopher Lauren.
The many beautiful flowers in Zonnique’s photos were reminiscent of the flower wreath that Beyoncé kneeled in front of in this pregnancy photo taken by Awol Erizku from Feb. 2017, when the Grammy-winning sister was still carrying twinsRumi and Sir Carter. Bey’s sheer vail and brassiere, along with her ruffled satin bottoms, added to this ethereal image — another cue that Zonnique picked up on!
Zonnique looked like a goddess herself in a gown with a gorgeous lilac train of fabric and rhinestone-encrusted bodice that split at the belly to showcase her bump. She showed off her bump in two more lovely outfits: a regal purple gown that was tied to look like a giant ribbon over her bun, and a lacy white lingerie and a kimono made of the same delicate material, all put together by stylist NoIGJeremy. Zonnique wore her hair in three different styles for each photo — down and curly, swept up in a classy side ‘do, and straight — which was the work of hair stylist Jodie Rowlands. Latasha Wright did Zonnique’s glam makeup!
Zonnique used a famous quote to caption her stunning pregnancy photo shoot: “You never understand life until it grows inside you.” The VH1 star also added that she “can’t wait to meet my everything.” Her mother, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, proudly shared the new maternity photos on her Instagram as well. “I couldn’t wait to post my prize possession both of them @zonniquejailee u are amazingly beautiful. Everything about you! My Gbaby will be so Blessed to have u as a mother. Now walk that baby down chile,” the Xscape singer gushed in the Instagram post.
Zonnique announced her pregnancy in an interview with PEOPLE in Aug. 2020, at which point she was already five months along. Since then, the T.I. & Tiny: Friends & Family Hustle star has happily been updating her Instagram feed with baby bump photos.
Zonnique is expecting her first child with boyfriend and music artist Bandhunta Izzy, but she’s not ready to walk down the aisle yet. “I feel like at my age, I don’t really want to get married right now. I feel like that’s an even bigger commitment. I hate to say that’s even a bigger commitment than a baby, but getting married just seems like so much. So right now, that’s not really what I want to do,” Zonnique EXCLUSIVELY toldHollywoodLife in August.
