Willow Palin is proudly showing off her enormous baby bump in a new Instagram snap and video.
‘So thankful to be able to carry our girls this far,’ Willow, 25, wrote in the caption accompanying her Saturday post. ’36 weeks and counting!’
Willow can be seen wearing a grey sports bra – flashing a hint of a tattoo on her ribs – black leggings, sandals and socks as she showcases her protruding belly.

Willow has been chronicling her growing baby bump on Instagram since announcing she and husband, Rickey Bailey, were expecting twins in May.
On Monday, Willow – who is due in December – took to Instagram Stories to share a photo of herself sitting on the floor in her babies’ bedroom with her ‘Friends’ long-sleeve shirt hiked up over her bare stomach.
‘Countdown to babies,’ she captioned the image, which shows her surrounded by piles of baby clothes that she had folded, while getting her girls’ nursery ready for their arrival.
The mom-to-be has on comfortable purple sweatpants, and her dark hair is pulled up into a high ponytail. Her little dog is sitting next to her as she looks at all the baby clothes she still has to put away.
The picture was likely taken by Willow’s 18-year-old sister, Piper Palin, who posted a video of the mom-to-be’s baby bump on her own Instagram Story that same day.
Willow also shared a snapshot of all the baby gifts her older sister, Bristol Palin, had sent her, writing: ‘Presents for the babes and post partum goodies for me from @bsmp2.’
Bristol, who lives in the suburbs of Austin, Texas, missed Willow’s baby shower that took place in Alaska in September, instead opting to get baptized with her son, Tripp, that day.

It seems the 29-year-old waited until her younger sister was closer to her due date to shower her with baby gifts, including footed onesies from Old Navy, a Hiccapop wipe warmer, and a copy of the children’s book ‘Goodnight Moon.’
Willow announced in May — eight months after she and her husband, Ricky Bailey, tied the knot — that they are expecting twin girls in the winter of 2019.
The expectant mom has shared photos of her growing baby bump with her 40,000 Instagram followers throughout her pregnancy.
‘Feeling large and in charge… Two sacks, two placentas, two babies, there’s a lot going on in there,’ she captioned an image of herself when she was 26-weeks pregnant. ‘Babies are doing perfect and I’m counting down the days until I go on maternity leave!’

So special: Willow received plenty of thoughtful gifts at her shower, including twin bonnets that her cousin Kandice made from a shirt owned by their great-grandmother
Three weeks later, Piper threw Willow a baby shower that was attended by their family and friends.
Both Willow and Piper shared photos from the family event, including pictures of themselves posing together and with their mom, former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
‘Thank you @piper.p and @ckckperry for giving me the best baby shower! And thank you to everyone else who showered these babies with love! #twinpregnancy #twingirls,’ the guest of honor captioned a snapshot of herself with her sister.
The mom-to-be was glowing in an off-the-should pink dress that hugged her baby bump, which Piper rubbed with her hand.
While the guest of honor looked pretty in pink, Piper sported a bold cheetah-print cardigan that skimmed her ankles and Sarah had on a camouflage jacket with a floral applique on the shoulder.

Exciting time: Willow announced in May that she and her husband, Ricky Bailey, are expecting twin girls this December
The room was decorated with pink curtains and table cloths that matched Willow’s dress, though the shower’s theme appeared to be autumn. The tables were topped with festive pumpkins that were painted cream, pink, copper, and glittery gold.
There were also plenty of thoughtful gifts, including tiny hand-painted Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star sneakers.
Meanwhile, Willow’s cousin Kandice took a shirt from their great-grandmother and made bonnets for the twins.
‘This is such an awesome gift… I can’t wait to see the girls in them and pass them to their kids,’ the expectant mom gushed in her post.
Although her older sister wasn’t there, Willow called it ‘the most perfect shower’ and profusely thanked Piper for all of her planning.
