Julia Fox made sure to document her pregnancy before the early arrival of her baby boy.

The actress, known for her breakout role in 2019's Uncut Gems opposite Adam Sandler, revealed on Instagram Sunday that she welcomed a son named Valentino last month on Jan. 17. Fox, 31, posted several snaps from a maternity photoshoot, in which she shows off her nude pregnancy figure wearing nothing but black gloves, heels and a "Daddy" necklace.

Fox explains that the photoshoot was thrown together last-minute after doctors informed her the birth needed to happen early because of health complications.

"These photos were taken by my sis @richieshazam right after my gyno told me I would need to go have my baby early cuz of some blood pressure issues," she recalls in the caption. "I ran home in a panic cuz I still hadn't taken any pics but my girls came thru for me. @nikitakesh brought the make up and @esychka brought the gloves and this is the final product."
