Adriana Lima becomes first model to pose pregnant for Pirelli Calendar

Adriana Lima has become the first model ever to pose for the Pirelli Calendar while pregnant.

The 31-year-old Victoria's Secret Angel, who gave birth to her second daughter, Sienna, in September, was photographed by famed American photojournalist Steve McCurry on Rio de Janiero streets in July.

In the photograph, Lima is seen wearing a black cropped top and low-slung skirt, the Daily Mail reported.

For the first time, McCurry has bucked the risque themes favoured by his predecessors like Mario Sorrenti and Terry Richardson, as all 11 women featured in the calendar are clothed.

Lima has posed for the calendar once before, wearing lingerie on the beach for photographer Patrick Demarchelier back in 2005.
