    So, who’s your daddy? I’m guessing he’s a ‘player’?

  2. jamie says:

    Not really an awkward family photo… but hey – it’s a photo of a belly that is painted like a basketball – why not eh?

  3. Lisa says:

    Odd place for a globe. I wonder if they were going to try to paint a globe and then decided a basketball would be easier.

  4. akprincess72 says:

    This is truly awesome!!! I wish there was a way to do a hockey puck instead…

  5. gruven_reuven says:

    Love it! Love it! Love it! LOL

  6. cuteasasa says:

    Pretty soon she’ll have room for that globe on the table. We’ll be seeing it next month.

  7. Lou says:

    Okay, I usually don’t enjoy the pregnancy pics (and I mean, at all), but this one is great! I actually thought it was a real ball at first and that the awkward part was trying to hold it in place to make it look like a pregnant belly!

  8. madame ruby says:

    The funny thing about this photo to me is her “smile.” She doesn’t seem to be that amused by this, but is just humoring her hubby or whoever did this. Well, she’s a good sport.

  9. Amice says:

    Someone’s been navel-gazing a little too long….

  10. jenniep says:

    way to make the bellybutton the fill valve. awesome pic

  11. X-Tine says:

    Weird, not awkward

  12. scott says:

    Gives new meaning to the term, “Slam dunk.”

  13. Sammy says:

    Come on, that’s just a basketball photoshopped in. 🙂

  14. Melba says:

    Whoah! Scrolling down I thought she actually had an old basketball in her hands–one that appeared to be wedged into her abdomen!

  15. Cierra says:

    I don’t think this is actually that weird- Seriously! Every woman always jokes when she’s pregant that it’s a basketball under her shirt, not a baby! This lady just proved that to be true!! ha ha ha!

  16. Denise says:

    That’s quite a tattoo. But what’s it gonna look like AFTER the baby??

  17. IronMike says:

    I think this lady works in my building. I’m not kidding. I sent the link to my work email and I’m going to check with a few people tomorrow. I cannot believe this!


  18. Andrea says:

    Yay! That’s my best friend!

  19. Ken says:

    An expansion team?

  20. Robn says:

    I object! thats not awkward, thats AWESOME!

  21. Glicks says:

    That’s no way to convince Kobe it’s his!

  22. Jimmer R says:

    Funny, but this isn’t exactly an “awkward family photo”, is it? Doesn’t belong here.

  23. ox says:

    LoL..great pic..even if staged LoL 😛

  24. caleb says:

    it looks like she originally was going to go with the globe, but decided that was too much work.

  25. Jennifer says:

    I am impressed with the artwork as well!

  26. Allison says:

    LAME. I’ve seen these everywhere.

  27. Glorious Pantaloons says:

    Awkward…or …AWESOME?!

  28. Leah says:

    That looks cute!

  29. hcw80 says:

    I like this so much better than the mom belly hitting the dad beer belly which seems to be so popular now days.

  30. Mike says:

    Wow. Talk about unfulfilled expectations up the yang!

  31. Elyse says:

    i actually think its really cute and someone did some nice artwork

  32. KneeKnee says:

    This is fantastic!! I can’t tell you how many times I was told it looked like I had a basketball, volleyball, watermelon,______(fill in the blank w/ anything round) under my shirt. Way to have fun with your pregnancy!!

  33. Celine says:

    I love it. The NBA should look into making this some sort of advertising campaign.

  34. Deb says:

    That’s a serious attempt @ subliminal imprinting! Hahaha!

  35. Jeb says:

    Well, now that is just awkward.

  36. g. says:

    Idk why, but that looks cute for me 😀

  37. zepy12 says:

    Well, someone “scored”.

    • grimey says:

      Correct, and the personal foul he caused cost him the game.

      • iLOLd says:

        There are SO many things I want to say…


        (but the mods would delete anything that didn’t mention Tron-guy, semi-auto’s, Marnie, compound bows, or photo-shopping, so nevermind…)

  38. Ashlings says:

    We’ve all thought it… Good for her for actually following through. 🙂

  39. Dane says:

    I don’t know nothing ’bout birthing no basketballs!

  40. Baldguy says:

    So wrong…but…I..can’t…look…away…

  41. alice says:

    Oh my gosh!

  42. Angie says:

    Reason number one you shouldn’t fall asleep on the couch during NBA season

  43. Jessica says:


  44. iLOLd says:

    Navel Baby Absurdity?

    Nothin’ But Awkward?

  45. calicious says:

    She really does have a basket ball under her shirt! Wow!

  46. Niecey says:

    Haha, that’s adorable

  47. Josh says:

    Aww, that’s really cute… it is part of her Halloween costume, right?

  48. gabeaux says:

    Her parents tried to warn her about being an NBA groupie. Good news, she had a bouncing baby boy.
