The bump has many uses! Christina Aguilera used her pregnant tummy as a prop in adorable new photos promoting the Tuesday, Aug. 5 launch of the World Hunger Relief's "Pass the Red Cup" challenge.
In the sweet snapshots, the pregnant star, 33, wears a denim jacket and white dress that cascades over her burgeoning bump. Aguilera, who's served as a global spokesperson for WHR (which benefits the U.N. World Food Programme) since 2009, uses her belly as a table top to write a message on a cup.
The star is challenging her fans to #PassTheRedCup on social media, which looks to fight global hunger.
In a blog post for Huffington Post, Aguilera explained why this cause in particular was so important. "It's heartbreaking to me that in our social media driven, increasingly-connected world, nearly 850 million people go to bed hungry each night," she wrote. "And this includes far too many children. It's a subject so close to my heart and has been for a long time, being a mom."
Aguilera reflected on her time in Rwanda, where she spent time at a refugee camp. "They told me how they escaped violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo," she recalled of the people. "Their courage and hope for a better life was incredible. On my trip, I served food to kids who walk miles to and from school each day to receive a hot meal. I also went to Haiti after the earthquake hit a few years ago and saw its devastating effects on many families. Kids there were so happy just to get rice and beans from WFP."
