Christine Quinn announced her pregnancy because she couldn't keep editing her bump out of her photos
The 'Selling Sunset' star's representative confirmed last month that she and husband Christian Richard are expecting their first child together and the 31-year-old beauty has now revealed she's almost 28 weeks pregnant but she wanted to wait to share the happy news until she felt "really ready"

Speaking on E! News' 'Daily Pop', she said: "It was one of those things that I wanted to wait until I was really ready to announce.

"And I got to a point where I was, like, okay, I don't want to be photoshopping my pictures...any more than I already do
"But I don't want to be photoshopping my body, you know? So it was hard.
"I got to a point in Bora Bora where my husband was, like, 'Okay, I'm doing everything I can but the angles just aren't right.' "
The real estate agent fell pregnant within a month of stopping contraception.
She said: "We've been talking about it for a while and [Christian] said, 'Wouldn't it be great during corona to get pregnant?'
"We were ready and we were excited, but the funny thing is I was on birth control at the time...and I said, 'Okay, I'm going to get off of it.'...
"I was just so grateful and so blessed at how quickly I was able to get pregnant because I know that's something that is really difficult for a lot of people. I never wanted to take that for granted."
The couple aren't planning to announce the baby's gender because they aren't bothered whether they're expecting a boy or a girl.
Christine said: "I don't really see gender, and that's one thing that Christian and I are both in agreement on. So we're not really announcing the gender.
"We're not doing a reveal or anything like that, and our nursery is jungle-themed, and it's neutral.
"We're just happy with whatever we're blessed with.
"An angel is an angel and a baby is a baby, so we're thrilled and, you know, we're coming up with beautiful unisex names that will go either way."
