Pregnant TikToker gets pre-labor makeover as she didn't want to 'look ugly pushing out a child'
On TikTok, a new mother revealed her pre-labor beauty routine. Indy Clinton, a pregnant mother-of-one, wanted to appear nice for the birth of her child, so she went to get a manicure and pedicure, had her hair blow-dried, and even fake tanned her body to give it a sun-kissed hue. Indy posted a video on TikTok of herself getting ready for giving birth with the caption, “I’m ready!!!! now just waiting on one thing…Prep with me for labor” as she recorded her pre-labor beauty preparation.
The Australian influencer gets a mani-pedi, blow-dries and styles her hair, and fake tans, and freshens up her makeup before going to the hospital, all of which are seen in videos of her leading up to and on the day of her due date. “It’s finally hit me that I’m having a baby, I think I’ve been in denial for nine months, but it’s hit me that I’ll have another baby by the end of the week. I just want to run a few errands before I give birth, so I’m going to get my nails done, get Navy [her son] a present from his little sister. I’m going to pretend this is from his little sister - I think I’ve got a few things,” she added.
Indy then takes her viewers to a nail salon and showed off all the nail color options. However, she remarked that “was a waste of $40, it doesn’t look like anything’s changed. I did go wild on my toes though, I got orange." Indy returned home later in the video and was prepared to put on her glow gear. She said, “I just got home, I’m going to fake tan now and wash my hair. My hair is washed, I’m just moisturizing my face quickly and then I’ll fake tan. By the way, my induction is not tonight, before someone says ‘why am I fake tanning for labor?’, do I want to look ugly when I’m pushing out a child?’, no. I don’t have long, I’m just going to do my hair, I might actually put it in rollers.”
“Also, should I wear this in labor [holds up a white crop top]? Last time I wore the hospital gown but I didn’t like the vibe of it, it made my shoulders look really broad,” she added while concluding with the note, “Hair is done." Indy's video received an astounding 893.3k views, 160.7k likes, and hundreds of comments in a very short period of time. One person wrote in the comment section, “I hope the labor is smooth.” “I did this exact same thing before my induction!! I hope your birth goes well,” another added.
Later a follow-up video showed Clinton grooming her husband's eyebrows. “You can’t have a unibrow when I go into labor,” she says, bringing tweezers to his face. Prior to the birth of her newborn girl, the influencer continued to share updates and refresh her clean-girl makeup look. This week, the Clinton family welcomed their first daughter and second child, with the influencer sharing the good news on social media. She wrote in one of her Instagram post, “Our daughter is here.”
