“Want to see how I get after eating a big lunch??? Jejejeje,” Rivera tweeted in Spanish before posting the photo, in which she is all smiles and dressed in a dark grey dress. Rivera has been tweeting up a storm about her pregnancy. Back in July, the 24-year-old announced the baby news via a press release. “All this came as a surprise, but I feel very fortunate. I come from a very close family and understand that a baby is a blessing,” she said.

Just a few days ago, Rivera shared on Twitter that her baby loves music and doesn’t stop moving. This will be Rivera’s first child – an exciting time for any mami. Proud papa, fellow Boricua NBA star JJ Barea (breakout star of last year's NBA playoffs) is also thrilled and has been spotted around with Rivera, fiercely protecting her from the paparazzi. Zuleyka has also said that she and Barea have no plans for marriage as of right now, but are happy to start a family together.
