Channeling her inner goddess. Pregnant Blac Chyna posed naked and cradled her growing baby bump on the cover of Paper magazine’s 1,000 Beautiful People September issue, and future sister-in-law Kim Kardashian even supported her on set!
In the pics (Us Weekly has the first look), the Rob and Chyna star, 28, stunned with long, blonde waves and a sparkly crown, and put her tattoos on full display. The reality star’s massive 7-carat diamond engagement ring from fiancé Rob Kardashian was front and center in the sexy snaps. Inside the magazine, Chyna modeled several different looks that all flaunt her pregnancy curves.
The bride-to-be didn’t do a full interview to go along with her Paper cover, saying, “I don’t do interviews, and I haven’t spoken publicly in years.” However, she did tease fans that her upcoming E! reality show will give the world a different side of her.
“I’m excited about fans getting to know me as a person and not as a thing or a face,” Chyna said. “I hope when people think about Blac Chyna, they think of a mogul and entrepreneur, a mother and a badass bitch.”
Paper’s managing editor, Abby Schreiber, gave Us Weekly the inside scoop on Chyna’s revealing photo shoot, which took place in L.A. late last month.
“Kim came by the set to check in with Chyna to see how she was doing,” Schreiber told Us of the Selfish author, who arrived in a floor-length black fur coat. “They had a private moment in Chyna’s dressing room when they could catch up and FaceTime family members. They really seemed to relate to one another like close friends or sisters. … Kim went through the racks and the clothes with Chyna privately in the dressing room and gave her thoughts.”
The expectant star also brought along another special visitor to set: her 3-year-old son, King Cairo, who she shares with ex-fiancé and Rob’s sister Kylie Jenner’s current boyfriend, Tyga. “It was really fun seeing her with King,” Schreiber said. “He had so much energy, and at one point, someone went out to get him a box of Duplo blocks so he could play next to his mom while she was getting photographed. He didn’t appear in any shots, but he was just a few feet out of the frame the whole time.”
Schreiber said the model was “terrific” to work with, and had no reservations about posing in the buff. “She was very comfortable throughout the shoot!” Schreiber told Us.
