The former "Glee" actress, who's often compared to the reality TV star, stripped down for a series of sensual photos on Yahoo, which were shot by photographer Brian Bowen Smith.
In one of the pictures she appears almost as a silhouette, wearing a tight black dress with her hand on her back. In the other, she's wearing nothing but a large fur stole as she holds her growing belly with her left hand. Both Naya and celebrity hairstylist Clyde Haygood shared photos from the shoot on Instagram.
Rivera, who married Ryan Dorsey last year, also shared a behind-the-scenes snap from the shoot, with the caption, "Deep in glam thought."
In her interview with Yahoo, the expectant star talks about the surprises of pregnancy and leaning on her friends for support.
"It’s such a change physically, mentally and in terms of lifestyle, that I definitely didn’t know what to expect going into it. I have friends who are moms, and you hear stories and stuff, but it’s never the same until you actually experience it yourself," she said.
"My friends have been a great support group. It turns out that, like, all of my friends ended up getting pregnant around the same time I did -- so we’re kind of all learning together, and we text daily about what else is new, or what’s different, or what’s aggravating us," Rivera continued. "So we’re all kind of in it together, which is great. We have this kind of built-in mom group now."
