And the latest to recreate the infamous pose is Jessica Simpson, who is seen on the cover of America’s Elle magazine.
The 31-year-old singer is seen cradling her baby bump while protecting her modesty with one arm over her breasts in the shot.
Jessica’s appearance on the cover came as she admitted to the magazine that she and fiancé Eric Johnson are expecting a little girl.
But Fashion Star mentor Jessica admitted she hoped their daughter would take more after her than her sportsman beau.
She told the publication: ‘I swear, I will croak if she asks me for a pair of Nikes instead of Christian Louboutins!
‘Eric is so athletic – we’re gonna have this athletic girl and I won’t even be able to take her shopping, ’cause all she’s gonna want is sports bras and Nikes!’
Jessica also teased about the name she and Eric have chosen for their little girl, describing it as ‘non-traditional’.
She said: ‘We’re sure on the name. It’s nothing shocking and nothing you’ll have to add to the dictionary. Still, when people hear it, they’ll know … why.’
Jessica spoke earlier this year about her pregnancy cravings earlier this and admitted to indulging in calorie-laden treats.
Speaking to Extra in January she said: ‘I had a buttered Pop Tart this morning,’ she said. ‘I’m eating a lot of stuff that I ate in my childhood.
‘Kraft Mac n’ Cheese, Pop Tarts, Cap’n Crunch. Everything’s filled with sugar.’
Unlike some expecting mothers, Jessica says she is not concerned about watching what she eats and is happily ‘give into my cravings’.
‘I’m like, ‘Yeah, I can do it. We’ll worry about the rest afterwards,’ she said.
