Not since a heavily pregnant Demi Moore wore nothing but a handbra for her 1991 Vanity Fair cover has the world been so mesmerised by a maternity photoshoot.
Lilica, a vivacious Pinscher mix, has been captured on the brink of motherhood - like many humans before her - in a beautiful set of pictures taken by her neighbour, photographer Ana Paula Grillo.
Like Demi, Lilica proudly poses au-naturel - aside from a celebratory flower on her diamante collar.
The mum-to-be glows with anticipation and excitement as she revels in the joy of her precious puppy bump for the camera.
Grillo took the shots in her garden in Brazil and shared them in a now-viral Facebook album entitled Pet Lilica #gestante.
"I saw her big belly and thought, this is it," Grillo told Mashable. "It felt like she understood everything, and made sensational poses. It was like she was smiling."
Grillo got her shots just in time. Just one day later Lilica gave birth to five healthy pups. The four boys and one girl have all been adopted by relatives and friends of the four-year-old dog's owner.
