The 32-year-old, who was recently spotted holding hands with director Ken Kao, wrote: "Feeling bigger and bigger day by day! Currently having some serious acid reflux. Anyone else struggling with it? #preggoprobs." The Japanese model snapped a selfie showing her wearing a barely-there nude string bikini. The brunette beauty, who revealed she is expecting a little girl in July, wrote: "Feeling summery and blessed."

The glowing mother-to-be is still yet to reveal the identity of her baby's father.
