"What's wild is that we're still in this era where sexuality and pregnancy are so disparate," Rumer shared.
Rumer Willis is showing off her baby bump in style. The 34-year-old actress posed for several black and white photographs with her pregnant belly on full display in a new campaign for Bumpsuit. The maternity brand was started by Gary Clark Jr.’s model wife, Nicole Trunfio, in 2020. The pictures are reminiscent of mom Demi Moore's unforgettable Vanity Fair maternity cover shoot back in 1991.
"I'm so excited to partner with Bumpsuit, trying to find things to wear during each stage of pregnancy is so challenging, especially things that make you feel sexy and comfortable," Willis said in a statement, per Good Morning America. She added, "I have been living in Bumpsuit. It's honestly the only thing I am wearing right now and plan to wear postpartum."

Willis announced in December that she’s expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Derek Richard Thomas. Rumer's family has been very excited to meet the little one since her pregnancy announcement. Demi Moore also shared her daughter's pregnancy announcement at the time along with the caption, "Entering my hot kooky unhinged grandma era."
This is the first time her dad Bruce Willis is going to be a granddad! Their blended family includes Bruce and her mom Demi Moore along with Rumer's sisters Tallulah Willis, 29, and Scout Willis, 31, as well as Bruce's daughters Evelyn Penn, 8, and Mabel Ray, 11 with his current wife Emma Heming Willis. Rumer is hoping her child inherits some qualities from parents Bruce, 68, and Demi, 60, especially their "goofiness."
"We're a family of weirdos, and I love that so much. I really hope that that is engendered in this child," she told PEOPLE. "That's my favorite thing, laughing with my family."
Rumer also spoke about her mom's iconic Vanity Fair pregnancy shoot and how she has a renewed sense of appreciation for the same. "What's wild is that we're still in this era where sexuality and pregnancy are so disparate. God forbid a pregnant woman to be in her power, or experience pleasure, or talk about sex. I really want to deep dive on it, and find more ways to be vocal about it, and get people talking about it," she said.
For now, Rumer is just looking forward to giving birth and having her big family by her side. "I just can't wait to meet them. I'm just so delighted. I feel sometimes I can just feel the energy of this kid sometimes, and I just can't wait to hear them laugh, to figure out who they are, play with them and get to know them," she shared excitedly.
