Here’s what Joanna Krupa said prior to her pregnancy

Krupa has been anticipating her first child for a while. In June 2018, she told Us Weekly, “God willing, we will start planning this year.” Fast-forward a little over a year later and she has given birth.

The model constantly shared updates on the pregnancy with her followers on social media.

One photo in particular that she posted in May was captioned, “Morning small baby bump ….but as the day progresses by evening time it’s huge!”

Here’s hoping that motherhood is everything Krupa expected and more!
