Actress Natasha Thahane made waves on Monday 7 March, when she announced her pregnancy. Congratulatory messages flooded her Instagram comments section, and of course, she topped the Twitter trends list.

While many were happy for her and her Orlando Pirates soccer star boyfriend, Thembinkosi Lorch, the mood has somewhat shifted on Twitter after she shared a second picture of her baby bump on Thursday evening.

It’s public knowledge that Rihanna is a trendsetter. The singer and businesswoman’s sense of fashion could be described as “jaw-dropping and daring”.

This has also been evident from her fashion choices that she has been flaunting in the most “Rihanna way” since the news of her pregnancy broke in January this year.

Since then, her maternity looks have been sensational. From her black lace babydoll Dior dress to crop tops…anything to proudly show off her baby bump.

And now it seems as if Natasha Thahane is following in the Diamonds hitmaker’s footsteps.

The Blood & Water actress shared another maternity look on Instagram while on set. This time she was fully clothed, but her bump was all out and not covered as she rocked a cropped jacket and track pants.

The actress had no caption under her pic and she seemingly also locked the comments section.

Debunking ‘photoshopped maternity shoot’?

Natasha also shared what she called a “throwback” video on her IG stories. The video shows the actress getting her make-up done with her baby bump in full view.

According to caption, the video was already filmed on Valentine’s Day. Is she debunking claims her maternity shoot was photoshopped?

And as is the norm on Twitter, it didn’t take long for opinions to start flying after Natasha shared her snap.

One thing that many tweeps seemed to agree upon is that the former Skeem Saam actress’s latest maternity look, carries Rihanna’s influence.

“Rihanna’s influence,” a tweep replied.

“It’s giving Riri vibes… Where’s the towel sis,” one tweep wrote.

Another wrote: ” Rihanna will pay for her crimes”.

“Anoke nitshele u Natasha kuthi ise Mzansi lana… Ayeke lento Kà Rihanna [Y’all should tell Natasha this is Mzansi…she must stop this Rihanna thing],” someone else tweeted.
