Model and former Miss Universe Australia Jennifer Hawkins has showed off her gorgeous baby bump in a series of candid new photos.
The 35-year-old mother-to-be announced her happy pregnancy news in May, revealing she and husband Jake Wall are expecting a baby girl.
"I'm sooo happy to share with you some exciting news! Jake and I are expecting a baby girl!!! We can't wait to meet her!🎀💕💓," Jen wrote on Instagram back in May.
"Thank you to our beautiful family and friends for their love and support and, most importantly, to my hubby Jake – I can't wait to see you as a Daddy!"
And now Jen has shared some gorgeous new photos of her growing baby bump on Instagram.

Jen has been keeping her 872,000 Instagram followers updated with her adorable growing bump throughout her pregnancy, often sharing bikini snaps of her cute belly on the 'gram.

Jen has previously opened up about the intense fertility battle she experienced while trying to fall pregnant. She discovered she has severe endometriosis and also experienced a heartbreaking miscarriage.
"Last year was such a tough year for Jake and me. It was the toughest year of our lives. I felt like I almost broke and, in fact, it's still really raw," Jen told Stellar magazine.
"But Jake was amazing. He let me sit with the pain, feel it and not be OK."

The couple married in 2013 and didn't think they would have any trouble falling pregnant.
"As a woman and a type A personality, I'm used to planning everything. I think this will happen, then this will happen. It seemed like a lifetime as month after month people constantly asked us when we were going to have a baby," she said.

The former Miss Universe Australia - Jen was awarded the title in 2004 at age 20 - was the face of department store Myer for 12 years, before stepping down from her ambassador role last year.
She and Jake have their own tequila brand Sesion, as well as an extensive property portfolio.
As for what kind of work she'll be pursuing after her bub arrives, Jen says she is just taking it easy.
"People ask about work, social media, breastfeeding and I just don't know. I just can't predict and it's good for me to let go for a little bit. I had a picture in my head of how many children I wanted by this age, but that's gone out the door."
For now, she's just enjoying being pregnant and feeling grateful for her newest addition.
"Just to see a bump is like no other feeling when you've wanted it for so long. I don't care if I put on weight or get stretch marks ... the only thing I can think about is her being healthy."
