I was sitting at home over the weekend scrolling through Instagram when this stunning picture of Soleil Moon Frye came across my feed and just kind of took my breath away.
I've been following the 39-year-old expectant mama for a while now, watching her document her life with husband Jason Goldberg and their three kids, daughters Poet, 10, and Jagger, 8, and son Lyric, 2. But this image of her beautiful belly—so perfectly round and stretched to capacity—took me immediately back to that feeling of being in the home stretch of a pregnancy, filled with wonder and awe at all your body could do, and all that still awaits.
"Still preggers," the star (who will always be Punky Brewster to me) succinctly captioned the shot. No complaints about swollen feet or insomnia or an aching back. Just a big, beautiful belly and a peaceful little smile.
"Is that real?!" asked one commenter incredulously. "No matter how many billions of times, the miracle is never diminished."
"When I was a little girl, I used to tell my mom I wanted 100 kids," she said. "Then as an adult, I thought that our family was so big with three. Then we have this amazing, incredible surprise with four, and I'm just so thrilled and excited and literally cannot believe it."
The couple decided to wait to find out if they were having a boy or a girl this time around. But either way, with three kids in the house who have names like Poet, Lyric, and Jagger, the pressure is on big time when it comes to a designation for number four. "We've gotta come up with something really amazing," Moon Frye said. "We have a lot to live up to now."
As a bookend to her own name, I'm feeling Luna if it's a girl.
