This baby is going to be a born ballerina!

Ashley Bouder, a principal ballerina with the esteemed New York City Ballet, is six months pregnant with her first child, a girl, but Bouder is still spinning away.

The dancer posted a video to her Instagram as she pirouettes 15 times with ease, all with her third trimester baby bump proudly on display.

“Still spinning away in ballet class…… #bouderbump #babydeflorio #sixandahalfmonthspregnant #nycbwinter2016 #thirdtrimester,” Bouder captions the post.

And her fans are all in awe of her balancing abilities with an extra mini ballerina in her belly – the video easily racked up 28,600 likes.

But the future baby ballerina is used to her mom’s impressive spins by now – Bouder danced Swan Lake and as The Nutcracker‘s Sugar Plum Fairy with the baby on board, and even performed in the Waltz of the Flowers while four months pregnant.
