Danielle Brooks is savoring every moment of her pregnancy.

Exactly one week after the Orange Is the New Black star announced she’s expecting her first child, she shared a sexy snapshot to Instagram showing off her baby bump.

Dressed in a black lace bra that peeks through her open black robe, Brooks, 29, looks off camera while her hand is placed over her bare belly.

“Still in awe. 💘,” she captioned the stunning photo, posted Tuesday.

The actress announced her pregnancy on July 2, holding up a positive Clearblue digital pregnancy test in her Instagram photo showing her sporting an open-mouthed grin.

“So elated to finally share this news with you all. I’m happily pregnant!” she captioned it, adding the hashtags, “#ClearblueConfirmed” and “#clearbluepartner.”

On her Instagram Story, Brooks shared a similar image and wrote, “When one chapter ends, another begins” — seemingly referring to OITNB’upcoming seventh and final season, which drops July 26 on Netflix.

A second photo on her Story saw the mom-to-be posing with her shirt pulled up to show off her baby bump, where she shared she was 20 weeks along in her pregnancy.

Brooks is fairly private regarding her personal life, but she has recently shared a few photographs of a mystery beau on her Instagram account.

The latest black-and-white snapshot — posted on this past Valentine’s Day in February — saw the couple waiting to take a few friendly laps around a go-kart track together.

“True love is when your partner agrees to wear a hairnet to ride go-carts. ❤️ #valentinesday Love you D,” the actress wrote in the caption.
