Timing is everything?
Former Glee star Naya Rivera recently posed naked and pregnant for an exclusive Yahoo! photoshoot, which just so happened to come out on Tuesday -- the same day as Kim Kardashian Instagrammed her own naked pregnant selfie. The Internet, of course, was quick to notice, since this isn't the first time the 28-year-old actress has been accused of copying the 34-year-old reality superstar.
Some also called her a hypocrite, given that last November, Naya slammed Kim for her butt-baring Paper magazine photoshoot. In a direct comment to Kim's Instagram post, Naya wrote, "I normally don't. But…you're someone's mother…"
The soon-to-be new mom took to Twitter on Tuesday to respond to all the hate.
"I chose to share pregnancy photos because I think this is a very beautiful and special time in my life," she wrote. "Media outlets know that when you give your photos and an interview to run a story you never get a choice as to when it runs. So trying to make something out of nothing based on stupid assumptions is awful. Such a shame. Especially when it comes to a woman and her beautiful pregnancy journey."
Naya proudly shared more photos from the shoot on her Instagram, including her showing off her significant baby bump in a tight-fitting black dress. "I love that I have been able to share this special journey with you," she wrote.
Last November, Kim's BFF, Jonathan Cheban, slammed the actress in an epic blog post after Naya criticized Kim's Paper photoshoot. "We all know you want to be Kim," Cheban wrote, "But you don't got it boo, and the only cover you will be gracing is the Single White Female 2 straight to DVD box set."
Naya announced she was pregnant in February, coincidentally, the same day her ex-fiance, rapper Big Sean, dropped his album Dark Sky Paradise. She's been pretty open about her pregnancy journey so far, even hitting TMI territory when she wrote about the difficulties of having pregnancy sex with husband Ryan Dorsey in a blog post in June.
