Watch Coco Rocha's Amazing Pregnancy Transformation

Video: Courtesy of Fireshot Productions.
We're already well aware (and big fans) of supermodel Coco Rocha's particular blend of elegant quirkiness. So, it's no surprise that the video created to commemorate her pregnancy is similarly, wonderfully weird.

The captivating video, exclusive to Refinery29, shows Rocha as her body progresses through the stages of pregnancy. She spins and spins as her belly grows. Then, finally, we see her holding baby Ioni in her arms. The video was created using 100 still cameras by photographer Steven Sebring, whose previous work often uses the same technique. Sebring relied on this rig setup when contributing photography to Rocha's recent book, Study of Pose.

"I was so proud of my bump and all the hard work my body was doing to bring Ioni into this world," Rocha told R29. "I think women have been conditioned to kind of automatically cover up, or hide the fact we are pregnant... Pregnancy is a wonderful thing — something to be proud of, not ashamed."

Don't mind us, we'll just be over here spinning around in our best poses.
