1. Diana Ross

It seems that baby bump photos have been all the rage recently in pop culture.  It was very difficult to find classic pictures like the one of the beautiful Diana Ross.  She looks so beautiful as she poses in a simple purple gown, holding a summer hat.  Also, how awesome is it to see Diana Ross in a floral wrap, ready to take a dip in the pool?
